    How much of a coast does he need. Like, just a small island or a tiny atoll, or are we talking the entire western coast of Africa?

    He is a good little figure but beware of the possibility of sticky paint on the doors/front fenders. If you want the G1 police shields/even more G1 look, I recommend getting the reprolabels set for the figure.

    I'm not too crazy about Prowl. I thought he always looked awesome in pictures, but when I got him, he just seems a little off somehow.

    Plus his doors are smudgy.

    I'll agree here. Prowl is a pretty central and important character, and a classic color scheme.

    But if you just want the mold, Silverstreak turned out a lot nicer.

    I have the three of them, and while they're all great, Prowl is my favorite of them. Without the repro stickers. I'm not a fan.

    Prowl's awesome. Worth it? Yes.

    And don't worry about that sticky paint bs.

    It's a good mold, but Prowl is pretty boring looking in person. Go with Bluestreak or Smokescreen - they look much nicer (especially Bluestreak).

    I disagree with the idea that he looks boring. He looks like Prowl. Prowl's a logical guy, he shouldn't have a paintjob that looks like Wheelie designed it whilst bored.

    Yes, get him. Especially if you like the character or want to complete the line. Didn't have a stick paint issue, but my only complaints are his black turtle neck (looks a little off) and the folding of his wings/doors. When transforming, I found they got in the way. But I keep my figs in robot mode on display anyhow.

    I never watched any Transformer series except for Animated, so I can't say much about the figure. So in my opinion, I'm not too keen on the idea. But the fact that he has wings like Movie Bumblebee is interesting. The legs are odd, but the more I look at it the more I liked the uniqueness of it. :lol 

    My only complaint would be the neck - It's too high. Other than that, it's okay for me. If you like the character, then go for it. :)
