    If there's one character we think of as a counterpart to Jazz, it's definitely Laserbeak.

    Haven't recent issues of the Laserbeak mold shown significant degradation?

    Hopefully, the remolded head will have the same expression as the original and not the unusual G2 face.

    I'll be adding it to my Encore collection regardless, but does anyone have a close up comparison of the G1 and G2 heads?

    In "Countdown to Extinction" didn't jazz capture and payback Lazerbeak in his car mode? That's the only connection that I can make between the characters.

    It'd be awesome if Condor(Laserbeak) is actually included, and it has a new look.

    Maybe the remolded head just refers to the corrections made on the reissue of Stepper/Ricochet, the Jazz reissue Takara made did have that goofy grin on it.

    Weird choice for a co-sell (if not a mistake.) Still, I imagine that they didn't want to either have to rely solely on the remolded head to sell Jazz, or have to make a release for the Casseticons since they don't seem to have access to the other molds (Overkill/Slugfest, Rumble/Frenzy, etc.)

    Laserbeak? This does not satisfy my logic circuits.

    I never could get Jazz to transform propery in car mode. I'd like to get this but I'm afraid he won't transform properly again. That damned silver chunk in the middle never fit right.

    Yah Iknow what you mean, I almost hated Jazz because of that damn part. Besides why spend the money when they will just come out with a better one in classics anyway?

    For anyone who doesn't get it, watch "Countdown to Extinction". Jazz is cassette-compatible.

    If this Remolded head does turn out to be the original head, then I'll buy for sure. If it's the drunkard face, then pass.:(

    I doubt it would be laserbeak. he was just reissued along with soundwave.

    Maybe buzzsaw? there's no relation at all between characters, but laserbeak would just be pointless.

    I'm thinking this is the case. But why in the world would he come with Condor/Laserbeak? Condor was released with Encore Soundwave that was released just months ago?

    Google's translation (as bad as it can be), mentions face changes (which makes me think he has Stepper's face not the Meister reissue's and not a new one), but I don't see anything about Condor.

    It was stated on the Takara order form that it would have a new face months ago. Old News to me.
