I got Sunstreaker, was going to get that Wave 01 8-pack but just can't afford it. Gonna get Prowl and Silverstreak next though.

Snazzy.

Why does Sideswipe look sad, though?

And am I the only who thinks the Prowl mold looks very feminine?

Ooo... I eagerly await the real photos and not this Photoshopped stuff, to determine whether the execution on Sideswipe fell through as badly as with Prowl... but first impressions on the shape/etc. are promising. Very much so.

I'm very glad to see Sideswipe receive a new head!

With that, I'm very tempted to pick him and Sunstreaker up whenever they hit the UK.

I'm not really keen on the Prowl / Silverstreak mould. They've done a good job, it's just not for me.

And I think I'll have to wait and see what Takara do with Ironhide. The mould looks to be the best from the new Classics / Universe line - but Hasbro have destroyed it with the paint job! (It's so simple too - how could they end up with so terribly mismatched pieces and windows? And I would prefer a slightly duller red, but I can't really complain too much about that.)

I just picked up Prowl today, I'd say he's worth a go. He could use a few more paint aps, but he's a lot better than the deco overload that 'Streak seems to be from his stock photos. He's very back heavy and seems like he wants to keel over backward at the slightest provocation no matter how you pose him, though, so be prepared for a bit of frustration if you grab either one. It's a good mold, though. Certainly a lot better than poor, crappy Octane.

I plan on getting as much as I can from this line as it is, as I think I'm done with Animated. Still no Universe sightings were I am.

Got Prowl and Sunstreaker today at Toys R Us (the only ones they have). Does anyone know when the rest of the stores will put these things out?

Question What I think of the return of one of the most heroic Autobot Warrior of them all.

Sideswipe is not actually one of my favorite Autobot hero but a member of my family actually likes him. And wishes to have an action figure of him related to his 1980's version because Sideswipe has been around since our childhood and our Father refuses to buy him one because it's too expensive for his budget. And now his back I just hope he looks just like his 1980's version cause this is one of his most favorite Transformer toy of them all.

Just FYI, the "new" photos from online auctions currently reported by some sites are the stock photos we saw in April.

As it stands I'll probally end up with at least 3 Prowls, I have a friend thats his favorite Autobot. The guy is 26 and everytime he watches Prowl die in the 1984 movie he almost starts crying!

I think i'll get acid storm, but only for the fact it's a seeker mold.

I want Prowl and Silverstreak. SS, maybe. Octane, Yes.

I'm almost tempted to snag doubles of the lamborghini brothers just to make an lbc Tiger Tracks and red Sunstreaker. All you really have to do is a headswap and then pull off the hands and stick them on the opposite arm.
