2005 Boards member D-Drive has also sent us an image from the latest edition of Previews. While small the image confirms two new toys for Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 5, Prowl, who is a redeco of Deluxe Smokescreen without the additional armor and Stealth Bumblebee, a redeco of the Beast Hunters version of Deluxe Class Bumblebee patterned after his design in the show. Check out the image attached to this story.

Man, that Prowl looks tempting. I do wish however they would have used the original RID or even FE for Bumblebee, seeing as how he doesn't have the armor in the show.
Smasher
My eyes hurt looking at that tiny, tiny picture.
MechaV
...is Prowl a just a Smokescreen redeco?

Looks like there's some new molding on there.

I'm getting him for sure.
rattraprules98
That Prowl will be mine.
MidnightBliss
Prowl will be the "end of the line, impossible to find unless you pay a small fortune" figure.
RoadRage
I'd buy Prowl and SkyStalker everyone else..................NO!!!!

Prowl just looks so promising..........he better have his ninja weapon's!!!!
Stepper
Stealth Bumblebee sure is show accurate
Smokescreen38
Finally!! Another Bumblebee toy!!

We were running short on them.

Need bigger pictures, but I'm down for Prowl. Always have to get the new characters, even if they are repaints. No way on Bumblebee though.
Hoptimus
I would like a show-accurate Bee for my daughter. Might the show characters upgrade themselves to match the toys?
Yobuster
Ha we all knew Bumblebee would return in yet another incarnation for a toy.

Doubtful as Bumblebee on the show lacks spikes even with a new scheme. Check, even Prime lacks the grill spikes the toy has on the show.

But I'll be skipping these. Wasn't too impressive with the Smokescreen mold and I really don't need another Prime universe Bumblebee.
Roadblock1977
Logic is the ultimate weapon when choosing Prowl. I'll have to think about getting Bumblebee though...
Mechafire
Want Prowl.
eBEFOREi
Alright - I'll bite. I am pretty happy with the Smokescreen mold, so Prowl should be a must buy. Interested to see if we get a new head sculpt. I can't tell from the tiny pic at the moment.
BlueAngel_Bolt
Prowl and BB shall be mine.
Metroplex79
For Beast Hunters, Prowl should have been an owl.
Digilaut
Hard to judge from the tiny, off-colored pictures, but it seems Prowl looks a lot nicer than the Cyberverse version, which was really bland.

Stealth Bee is using the BH mold, so he's still far from accurate to the show colors. You're actually better off with the regular Prime grey/yellow Stealth Bee, I think.

Eagerly awaiting bigger pics

Well, now we know all of this year's Beast Hunters toys, based on the quantities Hasbro told us at the US Toyfair this year, which should be all out by June-July.

Legion - 11 (Airachnid, Bumblebee, Smokescreen, Twinstrike - Soundwave, Hun-Gurrr, Prowl - Blight, Windrazor, Rippersnapper - Jet Vehicon)

Cmdr - 9 (Predaking, Bulkhead, Optimus - Trailcutter, Hardshell - Starscream, Shockwave - Optimus, Huffer)

Deluxe - 16 (Bumblebee, Soundwave, Lazerback, Wheeljack - Starscream, Ripclaw, Bulkhead, Smokescreen - Skystalker, Ratchet, Dreadwing - Arcee, Knockout, Vertabreak - Prowl, Stealth Bumblebee)

Voyager - 6 (Predaking, Optimus - Shockwave - Ultra Magnus, Grimwing - Sharkticon Megatron)

Vehicle - 3 (Sky Claw, Apex Armor - Autobot Driller)

So I wonder what will be the mainline for the 9 months between August 2013 until April 2014 when the TF4 Movie toys start coming out (Generations is just a back-up series with no TV support, that Retailers in Australia dropped this year when cutting back on the Brand).
Maybe a second series of Beast Hunter toys to go with the finale BH Movie perhaps? I guess we'll find out next month at BotCon and SDCC.

Not as hard to find and as expensive as the blue & yellow redeco of Smokescreen if it ever gets released after this wave, lol...
Shark Jumper
I hope most stores just skip the freakin 4th wave and just stock this one instead. Imagine what's going to warm by then.
Noideaforaname
I know it's from the show and all, but the last Deluxe being Stealth BB is still anti-climatic. Was hoping for a mold that only had one use before...
JDK
It's disappointing that this smokescreen redeco isn't the blue version. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that conversation. On the bright side, BH BB is a pretty neat mold, and a repaint will be nice to have, especially an even more murderous one. Also glad to see Skystalker in another wave. He's been hard to find.
calvin0
still waiting for a triple changer airachnid... look like it will never happen...
Omnius
I'll get Prowl, but I'll pass on Bumblebee - if he was a show-accurate redeco of the PRID Deluxe, I'd actually get it because I quite like how he looks in the show now.

It's pretty amazing, out of this huge assortment I have only bought/only plan on getting one of these figures. Smokescreen. The rest are total crap! How can you f**k up that many figures at one time? At this rate if they made 100 figures I would have only bought 6 of them And I though last years deluxe line was bad but this is pathetic.
Ash from Carolina
Just what the world needed another Bumblebee figure.

Sort of like this?

It's hard to see Prowl.

I'm pretty let down about us having another Bumblebee figure in the line. I know I shouldn't be too shocked but still if they were going to use it at least use either the FE or the old RID mold for the color scheme.

Still Prowl looks pretty neat so I may get him one day.
MindChamber
that image is too big, reduce plz.
Sideways77
Oh, don't give us anything useful like Hardshell/Insecticon or blue Smokescreen. We need STEALTH BUMBLEBEE.

You make me sickened, Hasbro.

You're comparing a quick and cheap repaint to a brand new mold. That is a terrible comparison.

Are you serious!? Dammit, Australia! Why do you suck so much!?

They could've blown up the Cyberverse like they did for the BH Dreadwing. But I guess we don't have enough Bumblebees.

roger that. smokescreen is the only BH item I have also, frankly have zero interest in this abomination of a line
Burnout
how about using pictures that aren't f%#king miniscule? Not everyone has access to the hubble.
Stygian360
They're re-releasing Dinobot II Ratchet?? WTF?! Not to say it's a bad mould, but as filler to help warm pegs seems like a bad idea. Not only is he not in the show, but he's an obscure reference on fanboys get. Oh well, it's Hasbro's dime.

And hopefully Prowl has a new head and isn't simply a repaint Smokescreen. Still getting this figure- and I'm glad they're making him in Deluxe scale- but it seems like he deserved better than to simply be a repaint.

Il get that prowl.
5ky7ynx86
Am I the only one who's noticed that Smokescreen's and Prowl's missile launcher SORTA look like Prowl's shoulder launchers from G1? I hope that there's some way to get them to rest on this Prowl's shoulders, because that would just look AWESOME.

I do wonder if the Prowl will come with the spikepack or not. I'm still getting anyways, of course, but I found that if you put the net on the harpoon the opposite way, and slip it between his arm and kibble, it looks sorta like an arm-mounted battleaxe.
kaijuguy19
Is it just me or does Prowl have a remolded chest? It doens't look to be the same as Smokescreen's somehow.
agentSAP2006
There was so much potential for the last Deluxe of Beast Hunters. Air Vehicon, Spiky armor Vehicon, a better Airachnid, or a new Breakdown. But instead, we get another Bumblebee.

No they didn't. The Dreadwings are completely different, they've never upsized a Legends and that still would not be of comparable expense to a repaint, even if they could.
f-primusunicron
prime rid deluxe shadow strike bumblebee is actually show accurated(this is for the one who said he wanted an accurate bee)
but still, want to see how that new bee looks in person
and for prowl, yeah it looks like a smokescreen repaint, and an awesome one
XD
but yeah, that image is tiny as hell

Its passingly accurate, both being black and yellow, but Shadow Strike isn't actually screen-accurate beyond using the same two colors in the deco.
Starfire22
Prowl will be bought.
Snake_eyes1975
I'm sorry but THIS IS BULLSHIT...

Finally..they redeco Bumblebee in the show, where he actually looks KICK ASS. Black with the yellow stripes..awesome.

I have not wanted to own a Bumblebee this bad since I seen battle blade Bumblebee review.

Now they don't even make the kick ass one from the show.

Ok...hasbro..if your reading this, repaint the FE mold to look JUST LIKE the black bee in the show...and charge me $40 for it..I don't care.

Finally Bumblebee looks killer in the show....then....they won't make THAT bee?!?!

Are you shitting me? A perfect opportunity for hasbro to make a Bumblebee and they won't make it?!?!?!

Irony...
Grimwing
Though after the discussion in project predacon between bumblebee and smokescreen. I Kind of can see the Beast Hunters easgleshot bow bumblebee as a upgrade for his overdue coronation into warrior class.

So much more respect for Bumblebee after that.

I like the remold a lot better than the previous deluxes in engineering and silhouette.

Can't say I'm that surprised about the prowl. I just hope they retool the head with crests and stuff. I'd like some stasis cuffs if their not going to use the armor.
Even if I don't really care about the armor. It feels wrong that prowl gets less for the same pricepoint.

With only eight episodes left to air. I doubt he will be in the show, but the precedent for model reuse would be available.
shroobmaster
We got a white repaint of Smokescreen the white Autobot instead of his new colors?

Maaaaaaan I'm sad.
NemiMonkey
Good thing I didn't get the first BH Bee. Wonder if he still has the creepy follow you wherever you go eyes. I'll still get him regardless although that would be icing on the cake.
