    sorry not sure if this belongs here or not. I'm looking at takara encore jazz but don't want to get a KO if i can help it. There are many on ebay, not sure if they are real or KO. Yes i know ebay doesn't allow KO but there are KO's that look legit enough to pass for the real thing, i just want to know if jazz was ever done so i want to know whether to be careful or not about that. i prefer the takara jazz box over the hasbro commemorative series.

    There aren't any known. Hong Kong gets a ton of takara stuff too. I'd wager it's kosher but that's not a promise.

    Just looked through the database here and there are no jazzs.

    The takara one is the best of all the reissues too. They had to retool the face because it became worn and is not really the best in the other reissues.

    I have the Takara re-issue and as much as I like him he was very loose. I never had G1 Jazz mould before, so I don't know if it's common though or I just got a dud.

    I need to correct my post, it's the takara encore that is the better of the figures. All the rest of the reissues have jazz faces like mick jagger....make you sit up and say wtf?

    The jazz re-issues were never great, most of them are floppy, vehicle mode won't line up right, have horrible head sculpts, or the gun packs won't stay on their backs.

    Get an original if you can.
