    He is selling the other FAB's too. Tis a shame that FAB Starscream has more accurate control surfaces than his larger counterpart....I think its a nice touch that they show the exposed internal missle on the side.

    How much will these be at US retail? These really aren't that bad, I've heard comparisons with star wars force battlers but for the same gimmicks, these look even better and way more articulated.

    did some editing to add the Starscream.

    We have seen pics of both of these items already, but the some of those Starscream shots (especially the in-between alt mode ones) are new. And I don't believe we have seen size comparison shots yet so...

    Weird they are both an odd goldish color, maybe some way to identify Test shots or an exclusive item?

    Oh wow, didn't see the Starscream. I'm really starting to warm up to the design...

    Jazz still looks good. Full approval.

    I really think Jazz would work just as well as a Classics figure. They both look very nice, but Jazz is the clear winner here.

    Let me rephrase that. Anyone who buys Jazz is the clear winner here.

    There better not be Gerwalk Starscream in the movie or there will be holy hell to pay. (as an insult to Macross)

    I could imagine the gerwalk being used as an inside gag for mech fans.

    Jazz does look al otl ike a classics figure, except for his leg design. There had to be a better way to do the head though.

    ditto, it could also be a tribute to Jetfire, the transformer with a valkyrie heart :D

    Classics, except for his head, barely poseable arms. Gimmicked legs. Comparing these to Classics is a big stretch, and an insult to the awesomeness of the Classics line.

    Howw are the elgs gimmicked? And I already mentioned theh ead. The arms don't look too bad. It definatly looks like a mesh between movie design and classics.

    Can't say I'm impressed but if these puppies sell for $4.99 then I could see them being a decent seller. Fast foward to December and you'll probably be able to snag them for a two bucks in the bargain bin.

    Also looks like this guy has Macross on the brain.
