    Can someone explain to me why what appears to be a straight reissue of MB Prime - basically the same thing as the previous use of the ROTF mold - costs $40 more?

    I'm not too cracked on this round of MBs, but Hound I might spring for. Deco isn't terribly different, but the added weaponry basically nullifies any need to get the Dr. Wu set for Hasbro Hound - and the cost will end up being roughly the same either way.

    You can switch arms, but the elbow hinge on the cannon only goes one way. So if you put the cannon on the right arm, it bends backwards.

    Yes but the elbow bends backwards if you put it on the right arm. They simply molded it so that it is mirrored to how it should be. It was a real screw-up on Hasbro's part.
    Ugh god Jazz got such a pathetic toy and I hate it as well. Never got my hands on the HA but from pics it truly does seem like an incredible transformer. Makes me wonder why the hell they would ever even look at the deluxe again let alone re-release it ten years later.

    I had the Takara HA Jazz and thought it was kind of a fiddly mess, certain parts never fit right, etc...

    And then I found out that it was actually a KO I had that was nigh-identical but with lower QC. Whoops. :( 

    Now have they actually mirrored it, or is the picture itself mirrored?

    The shield is new, but the weapons are the same as those from the AOE Voyager.

    Ooh... I pre-ordered the Revenge Prime, but the fact that it has the DOTM forearms with the original chest is throwing me for a loop.

    I didn't realize the arms had been retooled.

    I...guess that justifies the price hike?

    Nope. The ability to combine with Jetfire is the "logic" behind it.

    Ah yes, one of the most needlessly complex armored modes that ends up turning Optimus into a glorified brick with bits of Blackbird hanging off of him.

    Jazz is a pass. Bonecrusher I'll probably get because I passed on it 10 years ago and it might scale well with my Battle Blades Prime. Lockdown could've been better but I'll get it because I dig the mask/weapons and I accidentally broke my AOE one in half. Hope this Lockdown scales well with TLK voyager Prime.

    Revenge Optimus....tempted because it looks like it has the DA28 Striker colors. To be honest, THIS should've been the 10th anniversary Prime from Amazon, as it has the buster cannon from TF1 as well as the swords(hand held sure but still, the actual Amazon Prime leader isn't entirely accurate either since it's based on concept art). I wonder if the eye LEDs were changed to blue or if the eyes are just painted?
