    Thank God I quit while I was slightly behind i.e. Bee was a true MP but I just had to get Prime.

    After that I quit the MPM line and I can't be more pleased.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not that there are paint differences between the Hasbro and Takara Tomy versions?

    Jazz does look great though!

    Pics are superb.

    His altmode seems to be scuffed and not sure if it\'s as smoothly painted as HA Jazz\'s. This seems more silver as well.
    MP Jazz is def superior.

    I've looked, no offers in the USA...... and i had a bad experience with the HA Jazz so i don't trust China/Japan/Hong Kong because i got him from one of them, I'm not knocking the countries, just the figure felt like a knock off when it was listed as the real thing

    I found this for you!

    Masterpiece Movie Series : MPM-3 Bumblebee | IACON STORE

    I do would go for LT-01 the much nicer painted MPM-03 but not sure if he is still availeble anywhere.

    I\'ve really cut back on my collecting and I\'ve actually been selling off most of my figures.  But wow, this Jazz, Black apple Prime and the upcoming giant non SS Devastator are something I\'m really tempted to buy...and if we get a black apple version of Sentinel, ugh then he\'s a must for sure...

    Does anyone own both the Hasbro and the TT version and can notice any tolerance differences?
    Nowadays with the paint being identical, there are sometimes some variances in the tolerances between the two.
    Can anyone comment?

    I hate the design but I admit this is a good representation of Bayverse Jazz.

    I dunno, my HA Jazz still looks great, no floppy joints, the arm can hold the motorcycle weapon just fine, and it's a nice big figure that was cheap (for it's time). For me, I guess, it's my MP Jazz.

    Wow, amazing pics!

    I'm gasping at that one of Megs holding Jazz aloft as I tried something similar and could *not* get Megatron's hands to hold him stably!

    Well, here's one from me.

    Such a great figure, and such great photos! Are these latest photos of the Takara or Hasbro version, though? I have the Hasbro, which is fantastic, but the pictures of the Takara version make it look as though it has silver rather than grey hands and several other refinements. Is the Takara version out yet? If it has those differences I’ll probably get it too...

    Lots of tumbles before that stuck. Also tried for like an hour to work a way of him holding him with arms down, grabbing from back/head/chest area, more similar to movie, but that did not want to work without some form of clipping which I didn't have handy. So alt version there it was hehe.

    Your shot(s) are awesome, clean af as usual. :)

    the takara one has silver paint where the hasbro dark grey is..... the dark grey is slightly more accurate because he doesnt have that much silver...... my MPM Jazz has no tolerance issues at all mine is absolutely perfect with no flaws
    i don't know how you can hate his amazing design
