    It's finally happening! Hopefully this one will see the light of day, unlike the rest of the 3P Animated scene.

    Ok so I'm sure it's actually something from animated, but why does he have what looks like Mando's rifle?

    The original Samurai Prowl is one of my favourite deluxes ever, so I'm happy to see a modern remake.
    Maybe the sidecar will come with a baby Yoda to ride in it too. :lol

    Psyched about this, but I really hope there’s no mandolorian aspects like others are suggesting

    A quick google image search shows that it's a 'Seismic Staff'.

    Neat to know the staff is from Animated.

    Yeah I'll put a preorder in as soon as I can. I really like this. I hope they'll do the powermaster armor for Optimus.

    That looks really good. I'll preorder it.

    Now I really want to see whatever Prowl redeco we're going to get so we can get a random samurai armor for them, too - Samurai Rad, anyone?

    Looking good although I wish the helmet had its proper visor and the blade separated from the tire.

    Seriously though, give me that Legacy Leo Prime set DNA!

    When I see the samurai helmet, I can't help but think of...

    Only real complaint is I wish the Samurai helmet was just a new headsculpt because I feel it looks big on his head, but otherwise looks good. Might get it.

    I REALLY need to get Legends Animated Prowl. Guess it's time to hit up BBTS again, I have an order to ship out soon anyway.

    Also, those shoulders concern me in terms of articulation. How far can the arms raise laterally I.E. can he do Jumping Jacks, or does the armored shoulder need to be rotated 180 degrees (or as far as it can if that's impossible) to get the arms raised above the head?
