    We've received official pictures of Movie Premium Series Barricade, Jazz, and Megatron (the Megatron pics include the vehicle mode and are different than the Toy Fair ones).

    We also get our bios for Barricade and Jazz, along with product numbers for all three.

    yeah only good one is Megs because that is how he should have been painted to begin with. Again, minor changes that do not make me want to buy again. If they did new hands or heads, then yeah, but barely noticeable paint apps or even worse, such as Barricades head, make an easy pass for me, other than Megs.

    I'll get Barricade and Megs 'cause I don't have them yet. Might just remove the silver on Barricade's head.

    Megs is good, but when the original was so bad they could do nothing but improve. Jazz and Barricade though are very minimal improvements, if improvements at all

    I too am mystified by the silver Barricade head

    The gold on Jazz is really nice. Megatron's the only sure buy, as I returned the first coloring of the mold without opening it. Barricade fails at geisha.

    I love how the official photo shows the fairy wings in their concealed mode.

    Funny how Megatron's face is still kinda too dark and yet the one they go to town with the highlights on is...Barricade

    Megs I'll have to see in a store or something randomly for me to buy it. Though I do want *a* movie megs, it's just not an impressive enough mold for me to warrent hunting for it. Especially at the leader price point.

    Jazz will need side by side comparisons with his other versions. Unless the car/robot is a fair bit more 'silvery' then the original...which really I can't tell without a full comparison...i'll pass. I have no problems getting a fourth Jazz, but I'll only get it if it's an actual improvemnt.

    Barricade is a pass though, no need for a second. But I wonder if they painted frenzy...

    I'll def get Megatron (saves me repainting the original). Probably Prime too (for the sword!) Barricade is very meh, Jazz looks too much the same.

    That Megatron is how he should have been released in the first place. I might get him and Barricade if I see them.

    Well, I was hoping more for Barricade... that face looks terrible... terrible. Jazz, hmmmm I hope they will improve the color of the plastic in car mode, that would be nice.


    Megs is a looong way better!

    Megs - I'll take it. :D  I passed on Leader and Voyager Megs because they both looked pretty awful IMO, with the ice and clear pink plastic pieces. Barricade and Jazz, on the other hand, aren't significantly different enough to the originals to warrant me spending £10 a throw on them again.

    I think I'll pass on all three. Megs is a possibility, but it has to WOW me in person.

    He still has those clear plastic pieces.

    The silver on Barricade's face is likely to make him look more like the movie version... it just doesn't appear to have turned out so well in that pic. I'm actually more concerned that they might've painted over his windows though. If thats the case, I'd be skipping this one (well, maybe get him to steal his head).
    Jazz looks like a waste of time; if they really aren't going to at least give him the gun that came with the FB version, I don't see why I should bother with this.
    Megatron looks amazing.

    I already have Barricade and have no interest in Megatron but I might finally pick up Jazz.
