New Age H3 Harry

Harry (aka Prowl and, presumably, “Clean” Harry), the newest release from New Age‘s new legends-scaled line has arrived at Junkion HQ!

The Box

Harry comes in a Diaclone-inspired window box.

Apparently the Autobot car-inspired releases are Ark Warriors while the mini-bot-inspired releases are Mini Warriors. Harry is also labeled as Alliance Military Strategist which is a designation the Mini Warriors lack.

In the box you get a rifle, two missile launchers and instructions.

The Robot

One thing I really like about New Age’s products is that they feel very sturdy in hand which encourages you to spend time with them. I have plenty of third party products that are larger and more expensive that are both more fragile and less fun.

Harry robot mode

Harry is extremely well articulated! In addition to ball joints in the arms and hips, Harry also has thigh swivels and ankle tilts.

New Age also didn’t skimp on the details, here’s a close-up of the amazing head sculpt.

And the tiny details on the robot’s waist.

And now, fully armed!

The Fairlady Z

The biggest change with Harry is that, unlike Flipper, the wheels actually spin!

Harry vehicle mode

There are just so many details for such a small vehicle that I wanted to spend some extra time with the macro lens to really capture them all:

Harry front bumper
Hood logo and turn signals
Harry headlight
Head light
Harry vehicle mode windshield wipers
Windshield wipers
Harry door symbol
Door badge
Harry vehicle mode wheel
Fully painted rolling tires!
Harry tail lights

I’m amazed by the paint apps on this figure!

The Comparisons

Looking at Harry and Flipper in robot mode really shows off how much detail they put into this release.

The vehicle mode continues the trend making Flipper (who really is a nicely painted figure) look plain by comparison.

To give a better sense of scale, here’s Harry with Masterpiece Prowl.

The Rest of the Legendary Warriors

At the 2018 Shanghai Wire Factory (SGC) show, New Age showed off sixteen different figures!

Heaven knows how long it will take to get all of these released but here is the full line up:

* I’m not actually sure which one is H2C and which one is H2W – I’m just guessing that W is for ShockWave. Corrected after TFcon 2019
** More guesswork: McCoy just seems to fit Ironhide better. Confirmed, TFcon 2019
Check out ‎Daniel Bellido‎’s gallery of the event!

It’s unlikely, but I’m hoping that H10 ends up being their version of Optimus Prime for the MP-10 nomenclature symmetry.

The only disappointment that I can come up with for this line is that, by what we’ve seen for the pre-orders, it looks like they’re not giving the Max repaints unique names like they did with Gremlin and Critter. If that’s the worse thing that they do I’ll be very, very happy.

The Conclusion

I’ve never been a Legends-scale collector but I am now certainly a New Age collector. This line is just pure fun! Transforming them is a joy despite their diminutive size. I am really looking forward to their upcoming version of Cosmos and hope to hear more about their other releases very soon!
