    Super solid figure nonetheless.
    I received mine last friday (reissue of the regular version) and I'm loving it. Possibly my favourite NA Autobot so far.

    Too bad. I'd be tempted to double dip if there were more changes; I will just hold onto the original for now. Looking at Starscream, Prowl and Soundwave I think NA could re-release Jazz and Bluestreak with a few minor changes.

    there are also other reasons for not doing reissues. making as much money as you can off a bot. isnt always what it is cracked up to be.

    i don't even know what you are trying to get at with your reply.

    but with respect to NA, seems like they have built up a big enough reputation and following that they are generating sufficient revenue to fund them continuing to release multiple decos and re-issues as part of their running business model.

    Yeah, I just got the new version, and can confirm the above. The plastic colour difference is there, but it’s so slight as to be barely perceptible - it’s definitely not something that I could demonstrate well in a photograph.

    If you don’t have the original, then this re-issue is a must-buy.

    But if you already have the original, the variation is so minor that the new version is probably only recommended for hardcore Newage completists only.

    NewAge just mentioned a SG Ricochet recolor possibly coming on Facebook.

    As much as I like the engineering of tucking the doors away, to me, Jazz should have his wings out. Ahhhhh. What’s cool about the kit is that it also fills in the gap behind the head flap and makes it feel more solid, and less of a trapdoor behind his head.

    What is 'dirt cheap'? I might be interested in taking them off your hands to add to the 'fiddle box' of figures I leave out for my nephew!
