Prowl - Transformers G1 - Figure

18 years ago when I was 5 years old, I was beginning to become a complete Transformers fan. I only had one Transformer though, Smokescreen. Before I went to school, I saw a Transformer I instantly wanted called Prowl, a black and white model of Smokescreen. But I never got him and 18 years later my girlfriend found him in a site for me, so I ordered him and now he's sitting next to me as I write this. He's well worth the wait, a joy to play with and a joy to own, excellent.

Looks: Well he's a model of an old car from the 1980s, a Datsun 280ZX, the model is solid and beautifully detailed. In vehicle mode, he's amazing. You can see each part of the detail for the car itself, even though ther aren't seats as such, there's still enough detail to make you fall in love with this mode instantly. The doors even open!

In Robot mode he's even better. He's small, his 2001 version is taller, the detail on each area is great and it's almost true to the animated and comic version, except that his legs can't move. He doesn't have a lot of articulation unlike the newer Transformers, so don't expect him to be able to stand on one leg while having his arms in other areas. His doors make very convincing wings and the stickers, once you apply them, look just right. The head looks great, every bit the Prowl we've come to know and love. His weapons are nice, his rifle slots well into his hand/s and his missle launchers easy slot into the two tiny slots on the sides of his head. So all in all, he's got good looks.

Playability: Well he is somewhat fragile, bash him around a little too much and he falls apart and unlike the newer Transformers, he can't be put back together, so be gentle with him. But aside form his fragile make, he's a fun toy and his vehicle mode alone is enough to have you roaring down the carpet chasing after the cat, so yeah, he's a lot of fun.

Worth owning?: YES!!!!!!!!!!! Very well worth it, even if your just going to have him sitting on display, he's 100% worth it. I'm from the UK, I live in the UK and finding out that I could afford him at the UK price of £29.99 was somethign I would have been nuts to pass up. He's all sold out now, but pre-order for the next batch, he is well worth it.
