    HA was around $30 when it hit retail, and it's very big.
    SS is around Scout-sized and will be $20 at retail.
    It really all depends on where your priorities are as far as scale/value are concerned.

    I'm only in this wave for Megatron and Lockdown. Both look like they're going to scale pretty well with older movie figures, which I place a huge value on.

    I never once saw him at retail, and BOY did I look around.

    But yes, if scaling with older figures is a priority to you then Jazz may not be for you. I sold off or gave away 90% of my figures over the last few years, so most of the SS line is perfect for me since they're generally the best representations of the characters so far AND they scale well with each other, which is a first for a main line.

    I saw HA Jazz quite often back then. Bought it twice, then ended up selling most of my HA stuff because, like you said, it didn't really scale with anything.
    If I were all in on this line I'd do what you are doing, but I don't like enough of the SS figures to justify selling off perfectly good older movie figures.

    They are spun around properly in those pics. The wheels should be on the inside, with the hood sections facing forward. To have them the opposite way is to leave them untransformed.

    If that’s how they are supposed to be, then I’m going to have to spin them back around like he comes packaged and how he was displayed when first revealed alongside Jazz at toyfair or whatever it was. To me, it looks more on model like that. His biceps were a collage of different greebly bits, not smooth, or bulky. The other way just looks more pleasing to me I guess. Either way, he looks miles better than the first one! Amiright?

    When will these figures be released in the United States? Will it be the same date as in Japan (July 28)?
