    I couldn't get hold of Jazz in 2007 but upon going to TRU yesterday, I saw his allspark power version and I was torn between him and Sideswipe (but got sideswipe obviously) the thing putting me off is all the blue. Should I get him?

    Depends what country the OP is in. Over here in the UK, you could get it at TRU and Sainsburys.

    Premium, if you can. If not, then original.

    Definately the Original or the Premium if possible. Unless you are a big fan of the Allspark blue for some reason. The best thing about the Allspark ones is the packaging. I picked them up on clearance just to anchor my movie collection MISB. And for some reason I havent even used them as that anchor in the display yet (probably shows how good they are).

    personally i prefer the g1 style one, BUT if you want a movie style one, i suggest original. i was not a big fan of the premium ones personally, myself.

    but the allspark ones, were just not that great, with the blueness.

    BUT if it's cheaper, i say go with that... :lol

    I think Jazz is one of the few on which the Allspark blue DOES look good. And where other people love the Premium, I don't really feel it. Jazz's color wasn't silver in the movie, but a slightly darker metallic gray. The Premium just whips him a shiny silver coat, but I prefer his original plastic (even thought it may look a bit swirly).

    As for the mold itself, he's a bit of a squashed bot, but not too bad. If you can't get the original I think the Allspark one is very decent as well.

    Personally, I have the Final Battle one :lol

    I plumped for the G1 redeco. It's really nice in vehicle mode but plain as shaved balls in robot mode.

    Get Animated Jazz instead. He's a far, far better toy. The movie one is all big chunky legs and tiny spindly arms with lousy articulation.

    I actually dig the allspark power decos (target exclusive in the US: Tube cases)

    They work for me because the blue paint is placed in a way where you can only see them in robot mode. The vehicle mode retains the original colors.

    like its powering up when transformed. Brawl also carried the effect well.

    Barricade I only really liked for the red frenzy.

    I don't like the Allspakr powered guys I got Brawl and the blue just looks weird.
