5.0 out of 5 stars Truly A Masterpiece 12 Feb 2014
Transformers Review: Masterpiece Prowl

While there are Transformers who can be considered to be popular main stream fan favourites, ones like Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Starscream and a few others, there is one who is fondly remembered more for his vehicle mode than much else.
Maybe it's the childlike fondness for police cars or maybe it's the simple yet effective colours that has made Prowl so well remembered, his black and white colour scheme is nothing fancy yet it tends to be quite the draw for children of all ages, even to this day Prowl is very much favoured by many.

It was and still is a shame that a movie version of him was never made.

I had always wanted a Generation One Prowl when I was a child but I never received him, I didn't manage to get one until the Takara book style reissue a little over a decade ago.
When the Masterpiece line appeared around the same time Prowl was one of the bots that fans hoped to see get a Masterpiece release, it wouldn't be until last year when he finally got one. And what a Masterpiece it is.

So on with the review~

Alt Mode:

Like his original Generation One release, Masterpiece Prowl's alt mode is the Nissan Fairlady 280Z-T, Police version. Now it might not be a fancy sports car, but the design of the alt mode is very memorable and quite beautiful in it's own right.
It's sleek without looking over the top, it looks like the kind of car that you might normally see on the streets, maybe.

The colours are nothing special yet they are striking in their own way. Most of the body is white with a black frame on the lower half and the front of the hood, the headlights are sunken in and give an illusion of eyes of sorts, they are a silver colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to relive my childhood 19 Nov 2013
By David Puffer - Published on Amazon.com

I've started to get back into Transformers. Maybe I'm trying to relive my childhood or I'm having a 1/3 life crisis. I've had my eyes on the Masterpiece collection for a few months now and finally bit the bullet, beginning with Prowl. This was packaged up very nicely and protected. The box actually came in Japanese, which was a nice touch. The same went for the instructions. It's a good thing I played with Legos as a child and was able to figure out the instructions and how to put Prowl from vehicle to robot mode. The quality is good and does't feel cheap. He has good weight. I had a few scares as some of the parts stuck and I was afraid I was going to snap something. I'm impressed so far and will attempt to purchase the other. My only gripe is the price but after thinking about it and looking back, what I paid in the 80's is probably close to today's money. Go out and start your collection!
5.0 out of 5 stars A little expensive for the size, but pure beauty 8 April 2014

I just got this in the mail yesterday, spent a couple hours Transforming it back and forth last night, and this is absolutely my favorite Masterpiece figure to date. It has a complex Transformation, but both the robot and alt modes look beautiful.

It's perfectly scaled with the MP 10 Prime, which is both a plus and a minus honestly. I love when my figures are in a shared scale. It just hits all the right chords for me, but he's small as a result. Again, I don't mind that, but the price tag for it seems a bit much. That being said, I'd 100% buy it again.

All the haters talking about how it's no better than a voyager class toy or whatever are full of it. If you grew up on Transformers this toy is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great figure but not for the price 20 Dec 2013
By Here And There - Published on Amazon.com

I own the first Masterpiece Transformer: an Optimus Prime/Convoy MP-01. He's over a foot tall, half his body is diecast. He has rubber wheels and working suspension, all his fingers can move independently, has opposable thumbs and full articulated wrist joints. He has two flip open arm comms, a moveable mouth plate and light up matrix that unfolds from his chest. He was worth every cent!

Prowl on the other hand is barely 6 inches tall, is made out of nothing but plastic - including the wheels. All his fingers are a single mold and his thumbs can't move at all. And the only extra he comes with is his gun. This is no more impressive then my kid's Transformers Animated voyager class figures that are the same size, made of the same plastic, have the same level of articulation and the same level of detail respective to the source material and they only cost like 25 bucks! This Prowl is basically an overpriced voyager class figure. I don't know what happened to the Masterpiece line to turn it into this but it makes me sad.
