    Jazz is finally on the pegs in the UK, but, the G1 repaint is so much better! And there's the Robot Replica, and the Final Battle Jazz repaint.

    I was hoping the G1 Jazz would be released at the end of next month, but I have to wait until august! This really sucks but it is understandable.

    Unfortunately I'm now left in the trap Hasbro has set for me where I want to get about 3 Movie Jazz figs when I only needed one really to begin with.

    Are there reprolabels for movie Jazz? Have we seen the final battle repaint; is it any better?

    I'm really quite lost. I pride myself on being a bit of a thinker but when faced with simple decisions like this... I love Movie Jazz's design the way it is and want a figure of that, but the mould's stumpiness suits G1 Jazz better... but it will be mid to late August Plus time of shipping before I get that!

    So should I get all three Jazzes or just hold tight for the Robot Replica and G1 Repaint in August? What uses can I find for my Movie Jazz figure after that - a car mode to display with the RR maybe?

    G1 Jazz as in the repaint of Jazz in his G1 toy's colours.

    A Jazz Reissue would be nice too - I love that toy as a kid but mine's bust.

    Silver Jazz FTW. G1 colours on Movie figures, FTL. Movie colours on G1 figures, FTL.

    Respective colours on each line, FTW!

    I've been debating this as well. I like to get things that are unique, so getting movie Jazz in his normal color scheme would fit that bill... but he looks VERY plain in that scheme, especially in his dumpy vehicle mode. The G1 color makes him much more vibrant and allows him to sneak into Classics (even though he's much fatter than them), but it doesnt require any imagination.

    I thought the "Final Battle' scheme was the same as the G1 scheme. It's different?

    Final Battle is a battle-damaged version of the original (same overall color scheme) with an apparent new weapon, it's also a normal release. The G1 is a Target exclusive

    This is the only movie toy mold where the G1 scheme doesn't suck and is a bit better.

    Do you guys usually get Target exclusives? If not, you might not see the G1 Movie Jazz.

    I'm definately waiting for the G1 repaint. I will be trimming those ridiculous rabbit ears though.

    Sorry, but what does FTL means?

    I must admit that the G1 colour scheme looks nice but I will still choose the original version for "show" or "movie" accuracy".

    We won't be seeing the Geewun repaint but I could always order it online.

    How about buying Jazz and repainting him silver?

    I've already got the first one, but I do like the G1 a little better.
