    With his downcast face, frowny mouth, and his slumpy shoulders, I've always thought Classics Prowl looked a little bit sad, yet grimly determined to persevere.

    Here he looks extra dejected because his wings are drooping as well.

    I call upon the wisdom of TFW2005 - what made poor Prowl so sad? I must know. His status as a hero depends on it. Is he enduring unimaginable tragedy, yet soldiering on, is he suffering an existential crisis, or is he just a big emo crybaby?

    He's not sad. He's just lost in thought.

    Personally, I dislike robot designs that have "mouths" where the faceplate seems to morph to emote. It works well on Animated characters, but it's more abstract than the Classics - Generations designs (and virtually other robot designs, for that matter).

    This was my first thought as well.

    :lolol

    Maybe Prowl just read his appearances written by Simon Furman who always makes him a prick.

    Really, he has no reason to be all that sad. At least he's not Universe 2.0 Ironhide or Galvatron.

    He misses his Turbo Cycle. He wishes a 3rd party would make a new one for him.
