Default Toyfare Scan: Alt Wheeljack/Prowl

Credits go to Kremzeek75 for the scan.

Hmm... Wheeljack AND Prowl in May? But Wheeljack is #13, and Decepticharge is #14... weird.

Scan removed because Toyfare are pantsies.

Prowl looks better than the other pictures from before, but still don't think he's the best looking alt.

He looks like he's got this goofy grin on his face - which is wierd. "Prowl, the friendly police officer"....

Wheeljack on the other hand! He face looks awesome! I almost looks like they went with the Daiclone head for the basis of this one!

Wheeljack looks awesome and I'm getting him no matter what. Prowl on the other hand looks awful. I know they used the same basic transformation for Smokescreen, Silverstreak, Meister, and Shockblast but I don't think I would have minded if they used the idea just one more time for Prowl. At least that would have looked a lot better than...than...well that monstrosity.

Agreed Wheeljack looks good, Prowl looks like he's suffering from arthritis, looks very rigid and his legs look like sh*t. His head looks like it should be an inch higher, you know 'above' the shoulders.

I thought that Grimlock looked like crap at first because of the legs.

I was pretty pleased when I got him, though...

Wheeljack looks fantastic, however, I already bought Grimlock and I avoid repaints.

I think I'll skip Prowl, too. Unless I see a better pic of him or something.

I just wish Wheeljack had green and red stripes, but he still looks sweet.

Wow, the headsculpt on Wheeljack just looks badass. I'm still slightly disappointed that they didn't make him a decepticon (since there are too many good guys as it is), but he's earned his way onto my list of Alts to buy.

Prowl's chest is a bit too flat. It doesn't look as nice with the alternators.

Prowl's alt mode looks great i think, but he is rather blocky and his legs are too big in robot mode. I like Wheeljack better than Grimlock.

I held off on Grimlock because I knew I'd be more interested in Wheeljack, and this just confirms it.

Prowl doesn't look too bad...just not as Prowl. I have possible plans for this mold when I get it, depending on what the repaint will be.

I very seriously doubt Prowl will be lacking in articulation and the robot mode looks as unfortunately posed as the first shots of the figure.

I'm more concerned with the skeletal Stikfa's comment alluding to the Xevoz line (the second best thing Hasbro's put out this past year apart from the Alternators) being dead. I haven't seen them often in stores lately and when I have they've been on clearance. Then again, Hasbro is still packing newly released Transformers with Xevoz promotional material.

Did we actually get a complaint about it?

I would have said pricks but it's the same, general concept. What the Hell is their problem? Only one page was scanned in and it didn't show all that much. They got some free advertising for themselves and for Hasbro/Takara and they're still being a bunch of pricks? Sounds like they're shooting themselves in the foot more than anything. Are they also trying to give Zeeks and trouble?

Joe from TFW 2005 removed the scan over there and said that Toyfare are pantsies in that regard. I decided not to give them a chance to complain in the first place. Anyone who wants to see the scan can contact me.

Wheeljack's all love (even though he's not Breakdown) Prowl, well... I guess he'll be the first alt I'll wait to see what people that buy it think..
