    Found this today, not sure if it's been reported before. Seems they're mainly interested in iPhone cases, but this is what caught my eye, better than spending $1k+ for the Botcon version and looks slightly better too, might be time to stock-pile those RTS Jazz's:

    This is interesting, subtle but very cool.

    Unfortunately it requires painting him... I prefer upgrade kits that require no painting like Renderform.

    Isn't that the Phantom of Screamer gun? No, the details are slightly different.

    Well, I do have a spare Jazz. Sure, if it's cheap.

    I dug the concept, would be neat to give that a try. At least Jazz is mostly an easily paintable base colour. :lol

    advertising something with that's kind of shit photoshoping isnt very rassuring for the product itself...it's more like, "hey put some pics of the idea first with what we can do right now, so thats over third party productors came after us"

    You think TJ would take a picture and Photoshop job of that quality and put it out there in public?

    But seriously... stuff like this is weird. I don't understand how people think that they can make anything off of a kit that requires people to paint... especially full figures and the like. It's the same thing I wondered about that WFC MEgatron to galvatron upgrade crap too.

    Not take with this at all, wasn't taken with the botcon one either, why can't a 3rd part just make a good replacement arm for E shockblast already, better size for shockwave and more fitting alt mode.

    Just said it looked like your background. Ie, perhaps they photoshopped one of your previous pictures.

    Why did they choose jazz to make this alteration to? Nice mold but totally random, and you'd have to paint to even make any sense out of it.
