Masterpiece Prowl New Image - Roof Mounted Rifle Attack Modage

Shogo Hasui has been active on Twitter again, tweeting out some new images of the Masterpiece series Transformers. As well as an image of the ever-sharp looking MP-10B Black Convoy he has tweeted an image of Masterpiece Prowl with his gun mounted on the roof of his patrol car mode. Much like Sideswipe and Red Alert's optional configurations, this mode lets Prowl drive about with his gun on his roof in an attack mode, if you are inclined.

The image of Prowl with the shoulder missile launchers deployed was also tweeted, with the explanation that the shoulder launchers can be stowed in robot and vehicle mode without being removed, much like the launchers on the Universe Deluxe class interpretation of Prowl.

Oh yes - and the spelling of "Highway Patrol" on the doors has been corrected!

Check out all these images and more in Shogo Hasui's Twitter photostream.

Very cool!

Are Bluestreak's windows tinted red? At first I thought he had red shins with a smoked window over them, but in car mode, his windshield looks red too.

Also---Takara seems to have hired TFC's copywriter. HIGHWAY PATOROL.

Man imagine if that made it to the final toy.

Good Catch! I missed that.

Hope that error's corrected.

Patorol? Is that some new type of ADHD medicine? Nah, it's probably a mistranslation of パトロール (Patorooru).

Seeing these clearer pics put them both at top priority
TitanCi
Schweeter!
Star Saber
Wow, the clearer pictures just make them look even better! Cannot wait to get these! The longer wait just makes it worse!
Type-R
Clear pics confirm the plastic tires. You can see the hollow back of the tires on the shoulders in the bot mode pics.

That's 2 molds (Countach and Fairlady Z) now so I guess we can safely say it's the standard for MP cars.
Deonasis
The misspelling was on purpose and Prowl dares you to mention it.
blueben
Prowl's eye not blue?
Fort Max
I can't help but wonder if the pictures are deliberately angled to hide what's going on with the back wheels in bot mode, they must fold flat or something.

Looks blue to me as well, same goes for Bluestreak.

Both bought. Nice spelling error.

That car mode is SO DAMN SEXY!

seriously, these can NOT come out fast enough
TigerBlade
Someone needs to PS these guys in on an Autobot MP pic that comprises of iGear Ironhide and Ratchet. That would look awesome and give us a taster of what is to come. I wonder why they leave the indicators uncoloured?
ORIO
These pics are amazing. Thank you for sharing. But, please provide a source for where you found these pictures so I can throw them up on our front page

Thanks
Cal
You know, I'm starting to think Bluestreak's cannons transform into the tailpipes in vehicle mode. If that's true, Prowl might have his stored away to complete the transformation. Whatever the case, I just hope it's possible to store all their weapons in vehicle mode. But "Patorol"? Wah ha ha ha! Actually, the Engrish just makes it look more authentic. Conglaturation, Takara!
sh002
a mazing
stevej
That's it. I'm selling my BT cars. No longer need them.
The_Black_Sheep
These clearer pics... Look at the detail in these guys! & what about the "Highway Patorol" Engrish going on there!
Skywarp181
Nice!

Hurry the fcuk up August!!!!! Lolz

Man, could the windshield wipers be any bigger, or the rear view mirrors be sat any further up on the fenders?

That's what it looks like to me too.

Glad they have two entirely different heads too. I mean, it was already obvious the crests and "helmets" were different, but I was kinda afraid the faces would be the same mold.

Yeah! It would be awesome to have doors with plastic and paint that don't match the figure. Brilliant idea!
GAUGE
the windows aren't red people. you can see bluestreaks red plastic bits inside the car mode through the windows.

Yeah, why the hell did Takara have to be so slavish to the original '79 Fairlady Z ?

Most likely part of the agreement with Nissan.

Ugh, that is one ugly mistake.

You know, not to be a West-centric a-hole, here, but how in hell does a major Japanese company with longstanding ties to Hasbro NOT have someone who speaks English to check this? Or at least able to use an online translation program? Or even look at pictures of the friggin' original toy?

Bluestreak is now definitively the Autobot pimpmobile.

Nah I'd say he has a license to kill. He just needs an ejector seat and some fins so he can turn into a submarine

I'm seriously considering leaving Bluey in car mode. That thing looks fucking sublime.
dkr7
love these guys, only minor gripe is the slight long skinny leg look, but that may be the angle of the pictures

Ordered both now
Gilgamesh
Highway patorol beastiality!. Where do these guys live, that they can't access someone to translate for them? Uranus?
lord ginrai
They look sweet as hell.
I'm thinking the overly large windshield wipers are poseable and might be advertised as a gimmick.
Can't wait to see Smokescreen with his bodykit. Also curious how cartoon accurate his blasters will be.
Megatron31
man these look so great! time to pre order
slugslinger2004
Both look amazing enough to get me to dive headfirst back into the Masterpiece line. I hope they correct the spelling error on Prowl, but even if they don't there's no way I'm cancelling my preorder.
Acteon
Even nicer cleared up. I would like to see the outside lower leg, both toys seem angled to hide it.

Either way, I'll order these from Kapow nearer the time methinks.
Geterman
Looks great! I pre-ordered them both for $43 each from anime export

Yeah, I kind of want a real Datsun to park in my driveway, now.
Deadsled
would be cool if Prowl came with some stasis cuffs to hang from his waist
Robogeek28
Wow, just.....wow.
