    Now that we've seen pics of Samurai Prowl without his armor, which version is more cartoon accurate? The first release or Samurai Prowl?

    I'd like to pick up prowl at some point, but I want the version that is the most cartoon accurate. I'm leaning more towards Samurai Prowl to display without his armor because it looks like his eyes have light-piping and he looks to be more toon-accurate. But, I'm not sure.

    Here is the link to the news thread with the pics of Samurai Prowl without his armor:

    Thanks for posting!!

    Original Prowl is more cartoon accurate because he lacks clear blue plastic, but I suggest you get the Samurai version considering it's the same toy as the original except with more weapons and better looking cause of the clear blue.

    No, the samurai version is a remold, but the first one is more show-accurate.

    I don't think the differences are that great. Samurai Prowl has less paint details on his stripped-down robot mode (for example: the hands are black), but at the same time he has light piping, which is kind of cool (my problem with the standard Prowl is, his visor is painted, but in a shade of blue that's clearly not saturated enough).

    If you can pick only one, I'd say pick Samurai Prowl, because you will probably get him for the same price as the standard one and he comes with an extra. :)

    I'd say samurai Prowl has the more show accurate shape(like the pointedness of his bike mode), but the original has the more show accurate deco.

    They are both pretty show accurate, Samurai Prowl is just episode specific.

    It appears that the original comes with his shuriken and the Samurai does not. Correct?

    Going off of show-accuracy I don't plan on buying Samurai Prowl. He acted wayyyyyyy out of character in that episode, I'm fine with the regular one, shuriken and all.

    From the regular robot pics. It appears he still has his "three bladed mecha stars".

    i think both figures are accurate.. coz the samurai prowl is a remold for the episode where he bulked up with all that armor, which transformed into the sidecar... and im definitely getting that, it looks a great remold
