    Jazz has a paint job that belongs on an $8 discount store authentics. Nothing else but horrendous comes to mind. The car is as close to being a Porsche as possible without actually being one. It is really just a modified version of the POTP Jazz though.

    Hot Rod is what a $20 figure should be. Screws, and no hollow legs or forearms. Putting $.50 worth of extra plastic in the box and charging $10 more should be a crime.

    "Blah, blah, inflation."

    Are you making at least two times what you were 12 years ago? If you aren't, then you can't use inflation as an excuse. Production costs haven't gone up to justify the massive increase in prices and downgrade in quality. Next year you are going to see the price of a deluxe class go to $24. It has already been telegraphed with the new X-Men figures. What was $20 is now $24 and doesn't even have a BAF part, just an extra head and maybe a hand swap for the base figure.

    Jazz and hotrod both look amazing. Kind of hope the doors on jazz can go out like the original toy. Sorry it's the little kid in me :)

    Loving Jazz. He’s one of my favorite Autobots ever. I’ll get every any version of him. That said, yea it’s underwhelming he only comes with the gun but I mean, since this is based on his cartoon model and appearance for the movie, he will lack the shoulder launcher and the wings made from his door. And he didn’t do much in the movie besides be on moon base one and be saved by Daniel inside unicron. Still I will buy two of these, one to play and one to stay in the box as backup. Also if though it’s whatever, 3rd party companies will be on the case to give him his extras. I’m happy about this Jazz. He looks stellar and fun to handle and easy to transform.

    Enough can’t be said about Hot Rod. Probably the best Hot Rod that will ever come out. Just aces all around

    That's the issue with inflation, wages aren't rising with it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to make enough money to live a "normal" life anymore.

    So the box folds out to replicate the interior of Unicron? This figure just keeps getting better! Well done Hasbro, well done. It almost makes up for MP-28..... almost

    I'm not a Porsche or trademark expert, but man it looks close (which is a good thing for us).

    Usually, when Hasbro alters a car design to avoid licensing issues, the car looks noticeably off, much more so than this. If anything, the front of the car, including the headlights, looks pretty much spot-on (G1 Jazz didn't have folding headlights).

    I would just need to scrub that "1" off the side. :)

    Hot Rod continues to look amazing.
    Jazz never meant much to me, but I'll be replacing my potp version with this one.

    I guess there won't be an 86 in Studio Series for any of the Bayverse or Bumblebee move figures, with this set taking that slot. Cool!

    Was stoked for Jazz but I’m just not feeling this one. I get more of a PotP than recent WfC vibe, which is NOT a good thing IMHO.

    and it’s weird too because all of the other 86 and Kingdom stuff looks great.

    Huh, just noticed that it says 4.5 inches. Standard deluxes in Seige, etc always said 5.5 inches. Wonder if it is a typo?

    It was the best transformer movie and really propelled the brand forward. 86 had impacts from it and told a meandering but cohesive storyline which is far more than the bayverse could say. 86 even had transformers depicted as characters and not props. The bumblebee movie was not bad but could use some better bot designs during the main movie and bumblebee being able to talk and explore his character a bit. The cybertron scenes really saved bumblebee.

    I\'m interested in Jazz because the only one I got is POTP and that thing is trash. However he does look a bit too cartoon accurate to me.
