    The toy version looks great, I'll be adding it to my collection I suspect. Very odd that the clear version has been front paged with no mention of the toy version, surely the latter is of more interest to most?

    I also wandered why @Black Convoy did this. I think it was because the toy version was the last post of page 65 and the clear one was the first post of page 66

    Hoping the SG Version is revealed soon since it was shown off on the SG Ironhide box.

    Glad I never went back to get the regular version. For most of these, I'm way more into the toy versions.

    NewAge going back and giving Prowl a toy deco gives me hope they might give more of their older releases EX or toy decos: Thundercracker, Bumblebee and Brawn might look good with toy decos.

    Was thinking the same.

    Toy version looks great, though. Will be getting that as well!

    Yay! Proper deco on his doors is totally necessary.
    I already have the plain one and I was hoping for a decal set, but this will do too.

    I like the stickers, but I don’t have any other clear window vehicles at all so I’m cool with sticking with the old one. Even if he is the only one with loose legs, of the three, wonder if they’re gonna tighten him up.

    what’s shocking is over a year later and MS still hasn’t got around to their Prowl. Was their Bluestreak a poor seller or something?

    Maybe? And if he was I would think Prowl would sell better; I could understand canceling Smokescreen.

    Yeah, I told them I'd like to see them keep up with NewAge more regularly, but I saw the $50 for this and the $85 for Galvatron and nope'd right out of there. I thought the $40 asking price for some of the Datsun/Porsche variants was really pushing it. Remember when people were complaining about the MP cars going for $60-$80? Yikes.

    I checked my BBTS history, and I paid 29US (all prices will be in USD) for the original Prowl. That's reasonable, IMO. Then Bluestreak was 35, hmm okay, and now they've raised the prices across the board, selling the regular Prowl for 39, and most of the other Datsun variants for that as well. Why?

    But $50 for the toy version Prowl (which they list as an animation version for some reason) is just outrageous. I don't know how anyone could justify that for a 3 inch Legends figure.

    People have been justifying it just fine, talking about paint and parts count etc...
    I think 50 usd for legends Galvatron is outrageous, but 300 for MP Galvatron is outrageous too.

    Got a request to pay the balance in H3ex Harry from ShowZ. Looks like he’ll be shipping soon.
