    Wasn\'t the Go-Bot and Transmetal Pipes just revealed Yesterday? If so, is there any chance of another Golden Disk figure being revealed tomorrow?

    This looks like one of those off brand toys you'd buy at a dollar store...

    I had no trouble preordering Road Ranger and Puffer yesterday from Amazon.com but now I get a "Currently unavailable" for Jackpot... It's a preorder, I know it's not available yet - Let me preorder dammit! I'm european but can usually order from Amazon.com despite that, like yesterday for instance, dammit Bezos let me preorder my transformers!

    I'm a big fan of Hasbro Pulse, but they need to keep enough stock for these preorders that they last more than 5 minutes.

    It's a retool and redeco of absolutely the best version of G1 Jazz that has ever come out -including G1 Jazz.
    It's also decorated like the legacy character it's based upon.
    Try again.
    Or don't.
    Contrarianism is not as cool as it used to be.

    I had to hit refresh three times before the pre-order button was hot.
    I hope you have similar luck.

    So the quantum surge cured Jackpot of his Nucleon transform defect and gave Sights got a new body like the BW characters. Cool. I like it.

    Wet fart for me. I just hope terrorsaur isnt impossible to get. Strange the first pack went from 2 deluxes to this pack of a deluxe and battlemaster.
    Would have thought they would have been kept consistent from release to release.

    How is it difficult to get this? You just posted now, I assume you have internet so you're free to place your order online like I did yesterday with the Puffer set. They even sent out an email which is how I ordered this one today.

    One of the only things BotCon in its last years did right (and the one thing the writer ever did in their "official" involvement with Transformers at all) was Jackpot being Lupin the Third. Otherwise I wouldn't care for this.

    Head's a bit small but looks pretty good. Not gonna bother preordering on amazon, but might pick him up when he's in stock either there or on pulse if able.

    This might be overkill, but I honestly wouldn't mind an Action Master Jazz repaint...and there are a few other Action Master characters that would actually offer interesting repaints besides the obvious ones like Slicer [Wheeljack], Thundercracker. For example, Starscream or Shockwave.

    [​IMG]

    And yes, I agree with the idea of getting more Action Masters as 'new' characters, or rather new in the sense that now they can transform.

    I’ve been liking the stories they’ve come up with so far. Road Ranger being the same Road Ranger (or at least a similar origin) as the eHobby one, Puffer being a weird amalgam of Pipes and Huffer and now Jackpot being given a vehicle mode for the first time and sights a new body. It’s all dope!

    Personally wish that Jackpot had a slightly remoulded front but absolutely not a dealbreaker.
