    Many thanks, that’s a compliment coming from you! And great work with Megs/Jazz. It’s a shame that such an obvious display option isn’t easier to achieve!

    Really?
    I thought it was confirmed that there were not any paint differences.

    There aren’t. They’re both exactly the same.

    The member on the previous page stated:

    "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."

    I own the Takara version, the grey is exactly the same as the Hasbro release. AC3C8B97-DEA9-4EDA-B598-6C9BCC8417F3.jpeg

    Hmm I wonder why posted that comment then?

    Thanks for the clarification.

    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.

    Well, if you did get a KO and it was made bad, then that sucks.
    I've had my share of shoddy KOs, but the HA Jazz I bought was in a local store from when the first movie came out over a decade ago.

    I prefer the HA Jazz mold over the MPM Jazz mold. The MPM Jazz looks too squat and stubby, and the HA Jazz has better proportions, even if they're not movie accurate.

    idk what a KO is....... if thats knock off then yes thats what i got..... and its sad because the packaging looked exactly what you can get in the store and it even said it was a genuine hasbro figure..... how can you tell if its a knock off?

    im not arguing saying you can't like the HA better, we all have personal preference but the MPM is actually 98% accurate its scary, i have the prime one statue of jazz and i have the MPM jazz and putting them side to side everything is spot on he's not squat or squished or stubby he actually looks like that and the state is a 1 for 1 exact replica you see in the movie, the only things that aren't accurate with the MPM are the shoulders because of the panels and the back pack because it sticks to far away from his back and has a gap...... but other then that the figure is accurate..... and also better scale, the HA is so big its ridiculous LOL, hey i loved the HA years ago before i got it and before i laid eyes on the MPM...... imo the HA is the worst jazz figure we've gotten because its so inaccurate.... my favorite is the MPM and my second favorite is the OG 2007 deluxe mainly because of nostalgia

    You can never say for certain based on pre-release photography. Those are always hand-painted samples, and frequently represent the "best case scenario", before the number-crunching comes in and invariably scales back a detail or two.

    The final release versions of MPM-09 are identical.

    I think I’ve said this before somewhere, on another thread perhaps, but those pics demonstrating his “two pieces” action ... :cry  It’s been 12 years damn it and it still makes me sad.

    But I’ve waited so long for a figure like this. I’ve got HA Jazz and I absolutely love him, but Jazz has deserved another one and it’s about damn time he’s gotten it. Can’t wait to get this!!! <3
