    He's grey and silver, no black plastic:

    He looks damn fine in-hand. The Takara version seems to have made all of the grey plastic silver - the Hasbro figure already looks like one of the most premium figures on my shelf, so I'm looking forward to checking out the Takara version with these extra touches too.

    4B338F77-3B07-40B8-9AD3-67ED30C42395.png Adding paint to the unpainted plastic parts makes him look even more premium! What do you guys think?

    I choose for gun metal but the silverish plastic on the Takara version doesn’t look bad!

    does anyone know where his preorder is, esp for aj? with a nov 2 release date i find it crazy i haven’t seen his preorder available anywhere.

    EDIT: seems like this is the link? doesn’t seem like they have the preorder discount, and at 11000 yen it seems to be cheaper to order the hasbro version. only thing making me wake takara’s version is for the additional silver parts, but even that isn’t confirmed yet since it’s only in their promo shots...

    bummer, but not surprising bc from what i understood all takara/hasbro releases moving forward would be identical.

    guess i’ll just order domestic since it’s cheaper than aj without discount.

    Son of a slagger. I like the paint aesthetics on TTs more.
    Guess I'm buying a second Jazz.

    So Takara's isn't going to have additional paint?
    If not, I just saved myself 100 dollars.

    Still going to paint his face. Additional color will negate that zombie-esque look.

    My Jazz should be coming in on Wednesday from Amazon JP. I'll report if anything is different from the Hasbro release.

    So Takara Jazz comes in a full clamshell instead of a half shell secured by plastic ties? Neat.
