    Have to admit, I had no idea bwtf was still around... for some reason, I thought Ben had pulled out of the hobby a few years ago, but then I saw his name attached to the club magazine. Glad to see he's still around, and a nice review!

    His reviews are always nice (even though the toys suck) to read. I still refer to his site for pictures, though I often get "page not found".

    Jazz looks great! I will definitely get him.

    The man is a freaking legend. I miss the good old days when his site was *the* place to go for news.

    Hmmm a more G1 Jazz head with a mouth and some real hands with 5mm peg holes woulda made this guy a must get, but the lame hands and movie head make him a might get but if so will need some kitbashing to be good rating.

    sheesh everyone's talkin about the site instead of the toy... I still visit bwtf everyday so this aint news to me :p 


    as for the toy, I was initially put off by Ratchet and Jazz for their bulkiness. I'm still not sold on Ratchet, but Jazz actually isnt as bad as I thought. Nice coloring/detail on the legs, excellent use of light piping, and a friggin harpoon weapon?! That's a new one to me

    I like his reviews, and I like this toy. I'm glad Jazz wasn't drastically reinvented for the film. I'm not wild about the odd 'hands' but the rest looks very nice. Can't wait to find him.

    I gotta admit, i'm a little dissappointed by the arms. I thought the panels would fold over a center limb or something, but just being two panels looks kinda bad imo. Though that won't stop me from getting him as he still does look awesome.

    I think his design pleases me the most out of the movie bots. Shames he seems not to get a lot of screen time. I look forward to seeing him in white, and if they retooled the head he might make a decent stand-in for Classics Jazz.

    Someone could make a killing if they repro-ed normal hands and heads for the movie figures.
