Alt Prowl Not To Come With Engine/gun?

Recommended Posts

All the pics of painted proto prowl seen show Alt Prowl without the engine/gun (although the unpainted ones have the gun). Even a guy who bought a painted Prowl says he didn't get a gun/engine. So could this mean that the production Alt Prowls will not be coming with a engine, much less a gun. Not even a neutered engine perhaps. Usually protos come with all accessories. Now it could just be that the person taking these protos forgot to take the guns but I've seen several sellers of the painted prowls with no gun (in fact, haven't even seen a painted prowl WITH gun) unless all the sellers are getting it from the same source. Maybe, but maybe not.

I think it's a bit early to worry about it, plus we are talking about unofficial sales of pre-production models..

Yah, I know its a bit early to tell but usually protos come with all accessories and usually painted protos are an indication of what the production ones will be like. First phase Windhcarger protos came with barrels. Phase 2 and 3 ones was barrel-less. I haven't heard of any protos missing any accesorries that it was suppose to have unless it just plain didn't come with it. I think this may be a sign but we'll just have to wait and see.

It's one thing if it doesn't have a gun but if it turns out they don't even have an engine in it that will be a BIG problem. I would think after the outcry from the Windcharger neutering that Hasbro might have thought twice about producing an alt from a car that the company has a problem about the use of weapons.

 

Whatever ends up happening, I'm not all that worried because as soon as they come out you know there be no shortage of repro weapons/engines popping up everywhere, though it does piss me off that I have to blow a few extra $$'s on getting a part that should have come with the figure but whatta ya gonna do?!? :unsure:

Prowl is a Honda, isn't he? Windcharger was a Honda. Do you see a pattern emerging @hmmm@

Prowl is an Acura.. not a Honda. Both are Japanese car companies, but that's all they have in common. Are you gonna tell us next that Ford and Chevy are the same? @smilepunch@

Blame HLJ. They've got him listed as a Honda Integra.

 

And before that, I coulda sworn I saw him listed somewhere as a Nissan (???)

Jazz and Shockwave didn't have engines. The gun was the rear exhaust.

 

 

As for Windcharger, was that ever explained why they didn't include the barrel?

Kind of off topic, kind of on topic. Definitely Alternator related, though. I've been trying to find a link for a site, that was posted somewhere in the Transformers threads, that showed/rated all of Alternators/Binaltechs made to date. If someone would please be so kind as to repost it in this thread, or PM me with it, I would be most appreciative. Thanks.

Hound and Swindle didn't have engine guns either. Their engines were there fore arms.

Actually, it IS pretty much the same company. Acura is a subsidiary of Honda (like Lexus is to Toyota and Infiniti is to Nissan). In fact, the USA Acura RSX is known as the Honda Integra in Japan. So I'm expecting to see the Acura emblem on Alts and the Honda emblem on BTs.

Actually, that's correct. As mentioned above, in Japan the Acura RSX is known as the Honda Integra.

actually they have alot in common,acura is an american based luxury version of honda...much like nissan and ifinity or toyota and lexus.for the most part if you pop open a acura engine it will have honda motor corp written all over it....and one fun fact the acura logo is simple a closed in honda logo

 

in japan there is no such thing as an acura integra...there is only honda integra

Jazz and Shockblast had the engine molded directly on to the front of the car under the hood. Swindle and Hound had engines molded onto the forearms. So even the figures who didn't have engine guns at least had engines molded somewhere. If Prowl doesn't come with an engine gun, then its going to be a first for alts not having an engine because I highly doubt Hasbro will remold Prowl to include the engine molded onto somewhere. And actually Hasbro won't remold Prowl because Takara is the company responsible for designing and making Alts/BTs. I'm sure Takara will include the engine/gun for their BT so they will not remold Prowl to satisfy Hasbro's constraints. And Hasbro said the reason why WC's gun was neutered because Honda didn't want their product to be related to war machines, thus didn't want WC to have a gun. If Prowl ends up without an engine/gun, it probably be because of the same reason.

So I was right? And Insane Galvatron was wrong? Can I rub that in his face forever and ever and ever and ever pleeeeaaaaasse? @bounce@

 

So if Prowl really is a Honda (or a subsidary of a Honda) that explains a lot.

 

Best theory I can come up with is that Honda USA don't allow the weapons to be included, but Honda JP dont have a problem with it. Pre-Prowl I woulda said it was a safety issue (WC's gun barrel was rather long), but I think this confirms that Honda US are pansies @smilepunch@

I think Hasbro can get away with the gun because Prowl is a cop car and maybe represented as a police officer so honda may not have as much of a gripe about the gun thing since all police officers carry guns

I think it is too early to say if he comes with a gun or not. If we see more auctions with guns, then he comes with a weapon and that info about Honda not wating guns can be considered as a rumor since I heard that rumor appear before anyone knew why and ppl speculated it was Honda's doing.
