Transformer of the Day for February 6, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation One (1984-1992)
-Function: Military Strategist
-Motto: “Logic is the Ultimate Weapon”

-Notable Toy: Action Master (Hasbro, 1990)

Notes: Prowl is just one of those characters who keeps reappearing in one form or another across the Transformersverse. There are two versions in Beast Wars, as well as versions in Robots in Disguise, the Unicron Trilogy and TF:Animated.  And so many excellent choices for G1-inspired toys - from Alternators to Titanium to the original release. But I have to go with the Action Master here. Prowl always seemed aptly suited to ride a motorcycle - maybe that helped inspired his Animated self.

(For more information on Prowl, check out the Generation One Transformer Bible.)

(Apologies and thanks to the shmax.com, bbts.com and tfw2005.com for the toy and cartoon images.)
