    I think this is one of my favourite replies in months. Good job.

    I'd have gone with SARCASM: NOT APPRECIATED myself.

    More in-topic, I'm still debating whether or not to wait for Wheeljack on this mold. One the one hand, my Autobot shelf (to paraphrase the mighty Thew) very much lacks blue. On the other...okay, I just can't find Tracks. I've seen him all of once locally, though admittedly most stores are still wiped from Christmas.

    I'd get both ~ it's a great mold and such a massive remold (i'd guess it's close to the highest percentage of parts remolded in the modern era of TFs, only other one i can think of that'd be close was Dark Crumplezone from Cybertron) that it's practically going to be 2 different molds.

    Okay, TFWIKI found that there actually is a flight mode, so this one gets a pass. Just another case of the instructions department frakking up (where does Hasbro find these people?) Scourge still needs to be recalled and re-done, IMO. At least Cyclonus is good.

    My comment before was rather ridiculous. But at least the horse part was funny, right?

    I'm going to get Wheeljack even though I'm not hot for this mould as Tracks, I think wheeljack' leg transformation looks better than tracks'. That and Wheeljack was a shortarse unlike Tracks.

    But.. but.. the instructions clearly show how to TF Tracks into his flight mode... also just a page or two into this very thread, there are pics of his flight mode.

    I'm still not sure if you're just trying to be sarcastic or are honestly believing the very first post that there was no flight mode intended and then posted the rant without ever reading the rest of the thread. :confused:

    Actually, I agree that Scourge should be recalled immediately. I tossed it to my cousin and those wings man, they sliced his head cleeeeeean off. If only Hasbro had made him a shellforming boat, I would have only stunned him. Those monsters.

    Although it's really for the best, he'd already lobotomized himself with the smokestacks of a Masterpiece Convoy.

    Just got this and Jazz. They're both pretty fun. Nice that there is a flight mode even if it looks incomplete. Being able to deploy the missiles in vehicle mode is nice :D .

    I'm gonna go with... "The original's flight mode was really that great to start with?"

    I love my Blurr, Scourge looks sweet, and I can't wait for Tracks. The flight mode looks like an afterthought, but hey, at least they bothered to try and squeeze it in. Ah fan rage. It amuses me sometimes. :)

    I picked up Jazz and Tracks at the same time, and although I was originally more smitten with Jazz, I have to admit that from a purely finish-led perspective, Tracks beats Jazz hands down. Better paint apps, a lovely use of shiny greay plastic on the lower legs that almost simulate the die-cast of the original and some stunning attention to detail make it a great figure.

    Given the choice of the two I'd still pick Jazz hands down, but you've really got to hand it to Hasbro for the care and attention to detail on his case-mate.

    I got him about a week ago and kept forgetting to post here about it.

    Anyway, he's cool. The joints on mine are a little loose, and I find his transformation a bit finnicky, but overall, I'd say he's a solid deluxe. Also, I really with his knees bent back a little bit more.

    I think maybe if I had gotten one with tighter joints, I'd like him a lot more, cause he is a great design. 8/10

    He reminds me of Sideburn a ton, but he's way less frustrating to transform.

    Definitely getting this mold again for Wheeljack, what a fantastic little classics mold. Blends the complexity of Movie engineering with the playability of a Classics toy.
