    Was anyone else disappointed when they opened their kre-o Jazz and found that he was dark grey/silver and not white-ish as he seems to be pictured?

    I just looked at the pre-order on BBTS and thought to myself that he is way darker in person than he appears on the preorder/box.

    The Kre-O packaging art obviously portrays Jazz as being gray/silver. I'm not sure where you're getting the white from.

    i think the package art make it hard to tell. it also looks like he is head is silver/grey/white on the package when its really black.

    i already new his color when i bought him though. they obviously tried to combine g1 with the movieverse. why not? just have some fun with it. hes still cool.

    That looks like the photo you'd see for an online store. It looks like it's closer to white, but it's different from the official packaging art, which happens quite a bit.

    Aside from the head, the packaging art for Jazz is pretty accurate.

    This isn't to say that packaging art for Transformers is super precise, either. The toy photos themselves are obvious doctored up to make it more visually appealing. A lot of the nice metallic paint apps courtesy of photo editing software turn out to be flat and drab on the actual figures. But in this case, it's pretty hard to get white from Kre-O Jazz.
