    Jazz (aka Meister).

    Digital Toys is now soliciting orders for Jazz, to be reissued by TakaraTomy for release in March 2008.

    Apparently, Sky Lynx has officially been designated as the 7th encore figure.

    Cool! Crap, I didn't want to get any encore figures.:(  SS had me at hello, but I just can't justify the price. Ratchet is cool because he's an amblulance, I really wanted him. I don't know why I wanted Sky-lynx ever, but I can't refuse Jazz/Meister. (Uless the give him that horride reissue's face with the retard smile)

    I like how we're getting "new" molds in the Encore line (Sky Lynx), but how many times are they going to reissue certain characters like Meister? Glad I decided not to be a completionist for this line...the TFC line nearly broke me alone!

    So, who's #7?

    Edit: I'm guessing it's Sky Lynx. Cool, I didn't know he was going to be part of the Encore series.

    Meister? Yawn. An easy skip.

    I take that back. An easy pickup to keep MISB. I like Encore packaging and the Autobot cars are cheap enough to pick up for shelf display. Might wind up selling it out of boredom but at least sealed reissues appreciate.

    I'd rather see X-9 Ravage reissued but it looks like that line's dead.

    Odd how they are releasing G1 toys who had counterparts in the movie, yet Sky Lynx, assuming he's part of Encore, is not. Perhaps the G1 Scorponok tooling is lost or busted.

    Maybe that's a sign that Sky Lynx will be in the next movie...how EFFING dope would that be...

    Boy: Hey Ma, it's a flying metal crane carrying a huge metal tiger!!
    Mom: No you idiot, it's Sky Lynx, didn't you see in the encore series?
    Boy: I'm sorry Ma, you didn't buy me any....
    Mom: I love you son....
    Mom/Boy: (Hugs each other)

    G2 Jazz's face was fine, but then I wasted no time getting him in 1992 either. I don't know what happened between then and TFC/CS to screw up the face. Both UK Classics and Stepper came before G2...the only releases in between were eHobby (convention, gold), which if I recall correctly, were limited to about 1000 pieces each.

    Does it really matter? I have 4 right now (G2, Classic, TFC, CS) and I'll have 2 more in March. He's sprinting right past Ironhide (3), Megatron (3) and Soundwave (4) and starting to get into Starscream (6), Prime (7), and Sideswipe (10) territory. As long as I keep buying, Takara seems happy to oblige...that must be like a dagger through the heart to all the G1 haters out there! >:D
