Picked him, here's my short review. Vehicle mode is awesome. Looks sharp, colors work well. The G1 Prowl paint apps are a very nice touch. Feels like total homage. Robot mode on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. His arms, his shoulders to be specific, have a new type of "joint" on them ... basicaly all swivel, nothing holding it in to place, pops off easier than a ball joint and not as sterdy, by far. His articulation is limited to his head, arms, elbows, wrists. His knees bend, but not even close to really counting as articulation, the back end of his legs stop the knees from moving any more than maybe half a degree in terms of angles. All in all, I give him a 3 out of 5. He looks neat. But an articulated balanced toy he is not. If you like looking at Prowl, keep him robot mode -- otherwise, like the past few Alternators, his shining moment is in vehicle mode. Here's to hoping for a GOOD articulated Alternator. Meister isn't looking as bad as he first was these days.
