    I honestly don't think it has anything to do with "cheapening out". The hinge looks to be made of that nylon plastic that doesn't take paint well. It was also probably gang molded, and to make it a different color would have meant a new mold.

    They're all working on the Diaclone Reboot line.;) 

    Thick paper stickers all over it won't help that.

    I like the cut of your jib.

    Nope. Obnoxioys outside clip-on wheels. 4.5 vs. standard 5.5 inch deluxe class scale height. Hollowed out thighs. And still 19.99.

    I already have a fix planned for the extra digit on the door.

    RTS Jazz is a nice chunky bot but has a flippity-doo torso/arm assembly and lacks ankle tilts. Otherwise though it's all opinion on whether this is the best Jazz or not. I think it is by the looks of it.

    I think we can ALL agree that this Jazz has THE BEST face ever! Lifted straight from the Sunbow cartoon.

    The problem with Unicron Trilogy is that it was too different for its own good. If Hasbro's target audience is really still kids (which I seriously question) then Unicron Trilogy is too much of a departure from the characters kids know and love. Thats why we keep getting all these reboot cartoons since TF Prime. Unfortunately, Hasbro doesnt want to do an ongoing storyline for Transformers. (Similar to Star Wars where characters are born and die over centuries) Unicron Trilogy could work if those characters were the decendants of G1 characters similar to how Beast Wars is portrayed. But Hasbro isnt going to kill off 95% of the beloved G1 characters to make it happen because kids wont buy into it. They dont just need Prime and Megatron. They need Bumblebee. They need a traditional traitorous Starscream. They need a big dumb but lovable Grimlock. They need a female heroine like Arcee. (or Windblade) Unicron Trilogy just doesnt offer what Hasbro thinks kids love most. Bringing back Unicron Trilogy would be like bringing back Gobots. A big "meh" for kids. And I dont hate Unicron Trilogy. But I definitely feel it was made for the Pokemon era when Japanese "anime" style cartoons were at their height in popularity. Cartoons have changed in the past 10 years. They would have to completely reboot the cartoon for homage toys to be successful with kids. Hasbro wont axe G1 to do that.

    Kids don't care about a new deluxe Runamuck, they are targeting 40+ year old adults. Kids just buy whatever, when I was a kid I bought some generations, I had no idea who the characters were.
    UT fans are in their 20's and could afford to supplement generations but they just don't care.

    Well, I guess for Jazz I\'ll have to see what Reprolabels comes up with to fix the deco.

    I was not holding my breath for Blaster. So I ended up getting this guy.
    Unique Toys UT A-01 Soundmixer

    He is a really good Voyager scale stand in. If tapes get made from pretty much anyone. DR WU. I am guessing then I will be scooping them up. But Soundmixer is a good standin for sure.

    I only collect G1 Transformers. That means MP but have recently been priced out of that line. These are just what I need to keep getting my TF fix!

    Yeah I forget those guys haven't been done yet. I've narrowed my collecting right down to seasons 1-2 and a little of 3 of the cartoon. I forget some of the later ones haven't been done. One of my holy grail a would be a nice version of getaway

    I use those pens to draw with and you’re more than likely better off painting over the extra digit with a paint brush. The Posca marker ink isn’t normally completely opaque, you usually have to go over it with a few light passes on an area like that.

    Even so it’ll likely stick out depending on what tone of white the door is molded in(Posca white is usually cool/vibrant instead of warm).

    If the door is molded in white, it would look cleaner and be more consistent to actually just use isopropyl alcohol to remove the extra digit.

    These look fabulous! Transformers really have stepped up in recent years. Best toys since Transformers: Animated. These are the toys my 8 year old self wanted in 1986.
