    I don't know about Deceptigar, but I am on Bodhar2000's mailing list and am getting one from him. He is offering Prowl.

    I didn't mind paying it. It is steep, but so was Crystal Convoy and the Binaltech Black Convoy. The G2 Dreadwing thing was to just too good to pass up.

    The Prowl is cool, but I doubt I am going to drop the coin on him.

    Off topic but they said the Wing Blade Optimus comes with a clear body Optimus and non clear armor.

    I keep getting Yoketron vibes from the Prowl. I mean, yeah it's an homage to his G1 style, but given the color scheme and animated aesthetic I can't ignore it.

    Presumably, the Japanese magazine that he posted a picture of, that he can read, and most of us can't

    It's a very cool homage, but not something I find 'necessary.' When it comes to this year's Botcon set, where guys like Rapido and Pyro got big articulation upgrades, Dreadwing and Smokescreen were already articulate. In fact, they were among the very first highly pose-able figures, and sort of set the bench mark for all future figures. So, they fit in with modern figures just as nicely. I like Mindwipe and Skystalker as their own selves, and I like Dreadwing and Smokescreen seperately. Still, they look very nice in those colors, and I appreciate that Takara is paying respect to a very similar team.

    You know Dreadwing wasn't even on my radar until I saw these pics. Now I really really want one. If anyone has a hookup shoot me a PM.

    Thanks for the awesome pics.
