    The gun mounts on his shoulder! WHOO!

    It's stupid that he gave Jazz a B just because of the forearms, which aren't that bad. (If he were bigger, maybe it would be a problem)

    Wreckage looks like crap though.

    Dunno, I agree with the review concerning the forearms. Having them empty looks really weird, and the "hands" really look bad.

    Gotta try that NOW.

    Chaos Muffin, you'll probably burn in hell because of that sig... but it's too cool. :)

    Duh, it doesn't really mount on his shoulder, it just sits there. Oh well, still a nice figure!

    The person says he likes them, then gives them subpar ratings...

    Wreckage looks really nice once I get over that red. Is it actually that strong in person?

    I agree, so far he's the only one I am actively looking forward to. There are others I am happy about, but Jazz looks the best to me.

    I totally agree with what this guy's saying. I like pretty much everything about Jazz except his arms... which really are horrible. Even if his forearms were nice and solid (which they aren't... just a couple of flaps that don't even clip together), his arms would still have extremely limited articulation. When a new TF fails to meet even basic Armada articulation standards, that's pretty sad. It comes pretty damn close to ruining what could have been a brilliant figure. If that doesn't rate a "B" rating, I don't know what does.

    I love the Jazz figure... except... gah. Frustrating.

    As for Wreckage... the red on his arms isn't really that bright. Reds tend to go brighter in photos. Still, it's a pretty strong colour. Sort of a orangey rust colour... personally I think it makes for too much of a contrast with the white and grey, and the white doesn't really do justice to the finer details on this figure. Wreckage could benefit from a more muted deco. I'm sort of tempted to try dyeing mine into something darker.

    I really like the Wreckage figure, btw... solid figure, nice articulation. He's a little bit small... dainty even. And his "blades" and chest cannon look like Kool-Aid red fragments of Superman's Fortress of Solitude. But he's fun to play with.

    Passed on both, but I might still get Jazz one of these days.

    I simply don't like Wreckage's Alt mode. I'm not a fan of the white and red, either :/

    Jazz just doesn't seem all that great comared to some of the other deluxes (like brawl, barricade and BB, which are really great). The grey plastic and the grey paint on the roof is a horrible mismatch, and the bot mode is meh. The gun looks amazing, but there's no room to store it...
    Since he comes 2 per case, i'm sure he'll be on the shelf for a long time, so I'll wait for a sale :p

    My ratings are purely my subjective impression of the toy. And I wouldn't call a B a sup-par rating. B means good, just not perfect.

    I really want Jazz! Wreckage not so much. However, with some tweaking that would have been a very cool Movie Megatron. Kind of looks like he was a scrapped Megs design. Similiar head, silverish, red and black colour and chest is kinda like WWI Megs.

    I know it looks that way in pictures, but on my Movie Jazz I have to say that in person, the greys are a perfect match.

    Like really perfect. At first I was trying to examine the roof to see if it was actually assembled as two pieces (a clear and a grey), because I couldn't tell that it was just painted.

    Mine is like that too. The roof color matches the rest of the car pretty much perfectly.
