    Well the blue visor is a homage to G1 Jazz's. And admit it guys, blue visor looks cool.
    Pre-order are up in my location. Like... along voyager class price as the lowest.

    Its likely they kept expected stock low, due new CNY starting the 25th.

    So what did they upgrade, besides the paint? Any new joints or extra transformation pieces?

    The blue visor is accurate to the film. I didn't think so until I checked the other night, and repainted my MPM accordingly.

    Looks to be the same mold wise. Don’t see what they could have really changed with him tho.

    I think I'll opt for the original. I want to reward Hasbro when they actually do something good.

    I guess both I and Hastak were deceived by this picture.
    I'm glad I was wrong though. The blue visor looks so much better!

    This looks like it was made in the 90’s..... are we sure it isn’t fan made.... cause most/not a single business announces this sort of stuff like this anymore.

    (also how would they even be able to stop them at customs? Training agents who don’t give a crap about what’s coming in seems unlikely)

    I saw it months ago during that TW Freedom Leader and Zeta unicron drama. And all they did to BMB was to change their name

    I'm not sure about that being fan-made but it most certainly is old according to Wiki Hasbro hasn't call themselves Hasbro Bradley since 1985 and they only had that name change for one year between 1984 and 1985.

    No one else has this in hand yet right? Thinking about ordering from ShowZ and that site shows it as having a Pontiac symbol as painted. Not sure if they changed it for final release?

    It should be an easy fix with a red Gundam marker if it isn’t painted yet

    I believe (but not 100%) that some of the test shots that were sent around that we've seen pictures of, didn't have the red Pontiac logo, but since then some pictures have surfaced that show it present. It's possible that to avoid any issues from GM they only showed him off without the logo initially but the final product will have it (at least I hope it will)?

    If not then as Transvin said it should be easy enough to do a DIY job.

    Come to think about it, it wouldn't be the first time when BMB/Aoyi teased one thing and then released another. I still remember those sweet promo pictures of their OSKO SS Starscream with beautifully detailed accessories but in reality (and in latter pics that I found out much later) there are all boring completely unpainted grey plastic...

    So fingers crossed. At least in this case I can easily cut some triangle shape from a red sticker
