Default Animated Deluxe Class wave 6: Waspinator and Samurai Prowl

We've had the preorders before, here are the photos.

Waspinator and Samurai Prowl

Unexpectedly, Waspinator is NOT a redeco of Bumblebee, but an all-new mold. Samurai Prowl is a remold of regular Prowl.

Samurai Prowl would make a nifty little "Animated" Bludgeon kitbash. I think so, anyway.

Waspy's not bad. Shame I bought the 1st Prowl. Dont think this will be worth forking out another 10 just for a sidecar.

I would be more than happy shelling out a tenner for it, its not exactly the same so I'd go for it but each to their own I suppose.

They both look pretty nifty. I'm going to have to look out for these, but I bet the wait is going to be a long one.

Nice. Does the helmet become part of the sidecar or is it a new headsculpt?

Waspy looks interesting enough to snag.

Waspinator will be my first ever Waspinator!

I love how different Samurai Prowl looks compared to regular Prowl. Must buy.

Waspinator looks interesting, particularly in robot mode. Insectoid beast modes are usually hit-or-miss so I'd like to see more pics. Still most likely pick him up, though.

Prowl looks really good, but I'm going to wait to see what the verdict is on his armour before laying down the bucks for a second figure.

as much as i love samuri prowl, i can't help feel shafted at paying $10 for the original without all the extra kibble. true, the original came with a traffic light (!?) that i'm assuming won't be in this version, but i still feel shafted that hasbro can afford this quasi-retool (i'm assuming at least one or two extra pegs/clips) with extra 'bumf' at the same price point as the one without.

not that i want to pay more for it or anything, but if they *can* ship this as a deluxe, could they not have shipped the original at less? it just serves to remind me how much hasbro make off of us...

saying that, i'll be picking this up anyway. lord knows what i'll do with the now-somewhat-devalued original.

not sold on wasp(inator). oddly, i'd prefer a (p)repaint of cybertronian mode bumblebee, as per the episode autoboot camp.

ps dibs on the term 'pre-paint'.

But that character was WASP. This is WASPINATOR. Unless i missed something?

Zigzagger is so right.

I don't think the Prowl featured is exactly like the original. There are some subtle differences, if you look close enough.

Waspinator is great. Look close, and you can see that his head sculpt is a slightly altered version of Wasp's head.

probably me not being pedantic enough to *not* just assume lazily that they are/will-be-revealed-to-be the same character.

this place is getting like wikipedia*

Speaking of which, I got bored...
I really need to get a better photoshop program, mine makes everything look grainy and icky.

Plus, it doesn't look as well as I initially thought it would.

Actually, i was thinking to make it green, in homage to the inner robot. Always gotta have a backup (or in this case, my first) plan, ya know.

Well, well, well....Waspinator is just brilliant! I honestly did not expect anything close to this good, I will have to find a way to purchase this figure, even if it means selling blood! Samurai Prowl is just a little bit too brawny for my tastes, but still they captured the look of the cartoon episode fairly well, all things considered.

Hmmm. So are Wasp and Waspinator separate characters or is Waspinator the past version of Wasp? I like that Waspinator has an insect alt mode, given that Wasp looks to be a BB repaint. Will he have the same "techno-organic" hatred thing that Blackarachnia has I wonder?

On that note I actually managed to make my girlfriend scream one day with the Blackarachnia toy, not that it's that realistic. Still got a squeal from her when the toy got near! Heheh!

I'm more interested in HOW this will come about in the show. Will he be altered by Meltdown, or infected by some giant insects, like Blackarachnia was, or will Blackarachnia herself change him, so that there are more like her?
