Been a while since my last review. Ok, this is just aquick review on the very small version of G1 Prowl since I've noticed no one has done a review of him yet. As any of you who have read my review of G1 Prowl may have noticed, I have a strong liking of Prowl and I gave him a full 10 out of 10. Well enough chat, review time:
Car mode: Prowl's car mode is of a Datsun 280ZX, I think, I honestly keep thinking I'm getting it wrong. Anyway, I'm sure a lot of you know what he looks like and all that, maybe I can do a picture link from Remy's site if he doesn't mind that-
As you can see, Prowl is black and white, just like his larger G1 version. He has a small Autobot symbol to the left side and you can make out a little police badge on his hood, plus the two details that his larger version has.
On his front plate is the word 'Police' and the same word is on his doors along with a police badge. He also has the standard police lights on his roof.
The back of the car mode - has no well detail as such which is a pity really, but expected when you consider how small the toy is.
His doors do open as well, his wheels don't turn. An almost exact replica to his larger version in a lot of ways. His transformation is almost the same as his larger version as well, minus the tab to keep the two halves from turning all the time and his feet can't be spilt like his larger version either, plus no weapons to put on him.
Robot mode: Aside from having no weapons and his wheels not being able to turn like they do in his larger version, plus his feet not spilling, Prowl is almost exactly like his larger version-
Almost. The colours are just like with the car mode with only a silver like grey for any difference. He has his red 'horns' and the detail is as close as you can expect to the larger version for such a tiny toy.
So all in all, mini Prowl is a good find in the World's Smallest range. Not having weapons does make him look, well, a little undressed if you get my meaning and his feet do look like they were stuck together by glue. And he doesn't stand too well, but in all honestly it's expected for there to be some small niggles for such a tiny thing.
Being a Prowl fan, I give him a fair rating for being such an almost 100% accurate remake of such a popular toy. He loses a point or two for a few things that do worry me when transforming him, he seems very fragile and doesn't stand too well. But in my own opinion, the niggles don't get in the way of such a cute and beautiful looking mini toy. So 8 out of ten, hope the rest of this line keeps as good as this.
