    If the filters applied it's technically fan art right? He could probably get in trouble without it.

    Someone with 3D skills is having fun trolling us. :)  Isn't that a render of the KO MP-10, the one with the big arm gaps? I still highly doubt that is anything to do with TT, although it does look slightly better from that angle. He still has a weirdly elongated head.

    Ok, I'm still taking this Jazz business with a dump truck's worth of salt here...but after the Megs leak, ohmygoodness would this be a hilarious way to find out that yes, Jazz is on the way after all. At least with Megs, I can be a little surprised things like that don't happen more often (provided everything turns out legit in the end). This as more than someone's flight of fancy would be, well, novel, for sure.

    As for the little die-cast figures, I'd love for them to mean something more than just "replacements for the coins," but for now I doubt it. I do like the idea of eventually getting BW die-cast figures that'd be sized up to the G1 MPs per the cartoon.

    Someone in the +Alert News forum thread mentioned that the + release is getting a coin after all? I liked the coins so if that proves true I'll appreciate getting one more, but it still seems weird to randomly bring it back for one redeco but not for Ramjet.

    I thought it was a render too but I'm told it's an actual product and the way it's going I don't think this will be the last pic. Maybe someone got hold of an old TT design and 'ko'd' it? Same could be said of that Megatron leak, which is why TT have said nothing. At this point it could really be anything, it's a conspiracy theorists wet dream.

    *Interesting*. Well, so far I prefer the Maketoys design, but whether TT or 3P, this looks pretty interesting too. I'd certainly love an MP Jazz, either way...

    I posted on this Arturo's FB to either man up or knock it off. This is getting redundant.

    I don't have any insider info, but I will say none of the other renders on his FB page have that look.

    - Nothing TT does anymore surprises me. Maybe this is how they've decided to toy with us about Jazz.
    - If it really is TT, maybe Hasui's back on the line.
    - Maybe TigerBlade's right, and this is an early Hasui design that got knocked off.
    - Maybe it's 3rd party and someone learned how to nail Hasui's look.
    - Maybe Arturo really stepped up his rendering game.

    Regardless, if this turns out to be real - it's a damn good Jazz!

    Have fun, all!

    Arturo claims its an actual toy, not something he created. We shall see.

    Ahhhh, scatman is now at peace, I'll take it as I go and believe it. Also, the mp-39 thread is coming back if takara confirms.

    Is this really Hasui's look? I mean, don't get me wrong, it looks good. But the legs seem "off" somehow. Maybe it's the filter, but the screws in the knees seem unusual. And they also seem overly... "thick" for lack of a better word. It doesn't look like a finished TT product. Of course, that could also be because it ISN'T YET a finished TT product.

    It also looks like the doors fold up/in under the roof.

    I've thought Jazz has been done for a while based on various he tell me rumors...and the hangup was licensing, which it sounds like someone from Takara admitted in a Q&A session at some show a few weeks ago...it was posted here before the site update, and those posts have since been lost.

    If this dude has one of the protos, that would kinda confirm it's done...the big question would be did TT and Porsche finally come to an agreement and it's actually going to be MP-39?

    These pictures have fake written all over them, if you ask me. Why would anyone apply such a silly filter over these photos? Just kids posting rumors for attention in my humble opinion.

    If MP Megatron and Jazz are released in 2017, could be a great year for the Transformers brand

    Biggest red flag for me is that head sculpt looks pretty off. Since that's often an element TT consistently excels at, I have trouble believing this is official.

    But who knows, maybe it was an early prototype or something.

    Doors folding up under the roof is the most optimal solution I can think of, so I don't see that as detracting this from being a TT figure (not saying I think it is, but that specific element is hardly an indicator.)

    I still think Omega and combiners are a long shot. For now, UW Devastator is my MP Devastator.

    Hope this Jazz rumor turns out to be true. Licensing must be the hold-up, because I think he would have been one of the first few carbots released. Maybe even ahead of MP-12, to launch the carbot line. It better be perfect when it does come out because TT have had plenty of time to design it. :)

    In the immortal words of the beautiful Nelson twins, "only time will tell".
    Whatever it is, I'm never unhappy with multiple choices for any given TF. Because you and I have different tastes, it makes the world a bigger place.
