    wow the lack of paint on the back of the Generations Jazz is pretty disappointing.

    well, it's better (as expected). Not immensely better, but better just the same. RTS Jazz left so much room for improvement that it would've been genuinely surprising if they hadn't improved it in some way.

    In addition to the extra paint apps, the white of the plastic and the blue of the striping is a lot crisper.

    Thank God, I waited for the United version, it looks a million times better than the generations version! Does anyone know when this guy is out, come are saying January, others are stating otherwise!

    Glad i pre-ordered United Jazz. The colors are nicer and the paint aps are way better. For me it's worth it to spend more on him.

    Hopefully soon I'll be able to see a side by side comparison of Wheeljack

    Definitely. Not sure if they painted the United version white or if they used a better plastic, but the white being used on the US versions SUCKS. I've now seen Jazz and Drift look insanely better due to the white on the United releases. The US releases look like they come from the home of a smoker.

    If the first United wave is any indication, you can expect to see him at the end of January.

    The only thing I hate about the United version is the fact that it's no longer called 'Meister'.

    Obviously the United version is better,but still not enough for me to justify paying the price for one.

    The clincher is the shade of white.

    takara/tomy are really nailing these paint apps at the moment, look great. those silver wheels really make a difference.
    noticed it with the drift comparison too - makes the hasbro version look really cheap


    note: i know this sounds moany and appreciate the efforts of the front page news people but can you please please stop adding "after the jump" at the end of every news item. it is very tedious, repetitive and sounds really naff, like a strained effort to create a catchphrase. thanks

    There's no question now.

    Looks like I'll be swapping both my sealed RTS Jazz and Tracks for some more Wreck-Gars! :lol 

    Release date in Japan is January 29. YMMV if you live outside Japan and are looking for when a particular shop will get these.

    Wow, that is nice! What's up with the white on Hasbro? Jazz and Drift have such a better white on the United version.

    The extra paint apps on United is also very nice, glad I pre-ordered this one instead of buying the Hasbro's one!

    I keep looking at this toy and thinking to myself a clip on kit similar to classics CJ would work wonders to give him a proper 911 look. As theirs space to add the slopping back and pointy front.... maybe even caps to remove and then place the wing near the back like a classic 911..
