Hi: I was expecting for some of the traditional reviewers did this but up to now none has posted anything yet, and so, i venture myself posting a quick review for this figure, all the comparisons i am making are based on my MIB TF collection Jazz. 1- Overall presentation : Good,at first glance, at least, looks more solid than TF collection. When you close up it has more flaws than expected for a TAKARA reissue. 2-Errors corrected: In car mode errors in the roof and back windows were corrected, TF collection back windows are way too loose, the car now stays locked at midpoint when transforms, TF collection keeps unlocking and becomes loose. In robot mode the figure stands way better than TF collection as TFcollections leans back and eventually falls back! the face sculpt is not new as it was expected , they used stepper mold and obviously is way better than the horrible "post plastic surgery swollen" face in TFcollection but do not expect the clean and crisp G1 face. 3- Paint: the tampographed lines are really a plus in the toy and give him a bit of more realism, unfortunately painted stripes and numbers will be a hamper if you decide you want a more G1 deco and apply reprolabels specially at the doors (I prefer "Martinii porsche" than "Agent Meister" on the body). face paint could be better, the blue visor is a plus but not barely painted as if the figure was a cheap chinese 6 in 1 Ko. Another thing I dislike is the autobot symbol tampoed over the tampoed stripes it breakes the beauty of the painted lines. 4- Molding Problems: The figure presents an overall very good look, but in some parts of the figure the plastic feels cheaper than TFcollection it even has the hips charred: The copyright was changed and TAKARA makes NO PART of it anymore, TF collection Says : "1992 hasbro all rights reserved made in china" Encore says: "2002 HASBRO INC 2007 TOMMY ALL RIGHTS RESERVED MADE IN CHINA" finally, the tires are of a cheaper rubber and the groove detail presents very bad (like charred) definition. In conclusion to this review I can honestly say that the figure is not worth your $40.00 (S/H included),maybe if you plan to keep it in the box is ok. I used it to replace my TFcollection Jazz, because of the many fails that the TFcollection jazz presents specially the "swollen face". Encore ratchet and Ironhide are as cheap as this, and this maked me wonder if it is worth to keep buying this reissues. maybe Jazz was a damaged mold, but I do owe the 2002 Ratchet & Ironhide reissues and are far superior in quality to their Encore counterparts. compared to my KO mirage and red Mirage the quality is inferior as well.
