Well, I did. In fact, I felt like I was 10 years old again, because I got out of bed earlier than usual and could not get back to sleep, too excited at the prospect of playing with Prowl.
Japanese box 09 - Prowl MIB; USA boxed pre-rub Prowl MIB, unused; and MP-17: Prowl MIB
What else is there to say other than that its another wonderful figure to the already stella MP line. There is very little not to like about the figure - it's a work of art.
The car mode, is spot on in terms of its styling and scale, continuing from the strong precedent set by the Lamborghini molds (MP-Sideswipe, Red Alert, Tigertrack).
After transforming MP-Prowl, I proceeded to take a number of gratuitous photos... haha. Here they are...
In the photos are various Prowl incarnations: (1) rub-sign Prowl MIB (no insert); (2) Japanese box 09 - Prowl MIB; (3) USA boxed pre-rub Prowl MIB, unused; and (4) MP-17: Prowl MIB
Guess what? After 30 years, Prowl can finally strike his box art pose!
Some comparisons with his G1 persona.

Masterpiece Prowl saying hi to G1 Prowl (I have actually posted this on FaceBook)
Here are some shots of MP-17 with other MPs, for scale purposes. I think Takara did a wonderful job with the scale of the cars. They are literally the same height.
