    Get this. To me knight Orion looks weird from most angles and that truck mode is goofy as hell.

    Hmm. Does this have less than 90° elbow articulation?

    It’s a weird elbow configuration, kinda like a double hinge. You can get some unique posses out of it.

    he also mistransformed the die cast piece on his foot, and hopefully the ankle tilt is a bit more than that but with how complex Jazz is i won’t hold my breath

    since I just recently learned of this thread I’ll repost the size comparisons here too...

    Looks really good. They are stepping up their game with this one! I know people hated Ironhide because of his QC and design issues, but the last 3 MPMs have really nailed the detail and proportions of the characters. Can't wait to see Starscream and Ratchet!

    Bee scales well with Jazz and the BA OP, and Ironhide could be a bit larger

    obviously, his showcase on the shoulder joints is a little disturbing.
    The twilight is upon us, in less than two months somebody on Wiebo or Baidu will be the first to announce him.

    I’m very interested to see how Hasbro/TT handle Ratchet and Starscream. If they want to keep the vehicle modes as accurate as possible, Starscream would have his entire robot cased in jet parts and Ratchet might end up being mainly faux parts with his very blocky car and sleek robot. Close to impossible, but they also engineered MP-36 so anything’s possible

    Megs and Jazz were leaked to be the next movie masterpieces in January 2019 but I have no idea if that follows a schedule as I’m just starting my collection

    Starscream is supposedly next according to an old rumor that also included Megs and Jazz.

    Jeez, I hate Ton ton's reviews, it's obvious he rushes to get it out for likes. The video shows that he doesn't properly transform parts of Jazz, including the legs. Unfortunately my curiosity makes me see his videos with anticipated figures but God, it sure is annoying.

    With that said, after Megatron being a sure buy for me, Jazz is now also another sure buy, I just want to see a better reviewer tackle him.

    Apart from the forearms, I think Ratchet will be fine without faux parts. He just needs BW (or higher) leveled designers that's willing to work their talents around the cheats. It's mainly body mass and size that'll benefit him and Starscream. That aspect is what ILM messed up in the sequels, hence why hastak must avoid watching them for reference at all cost.
    no, but it could be if we end up getting Jazz as early as megs.

    @Phamduc have you had a chance to play with MPM Jazz? Was wondering what you thought about it.

    it is annoying but we have to keep in mind he is likely getting a pre-release sample, as in just the figure and accessories with no instructions. EmGo and Optibotimus both mentioned their copies of Megatron had no instructions and the transformation was speculation. @PrimeVsPrime actually got the final release, with the box and instructions
