    This is interesting.

    Why would Walmart sell the frosted front headlights and not anyone else?

    By the way, just incase people don't know, ONLY THE FRONT PART of the headlight is frosted, not the whole headlight. Only the tail front. Didn't know if people thought the whole headlight was frosted or not, which it isn't, only the very front. The rest is clear.

    I've got the frosted lights, and it came from Wlamart.com. It isn't that big a deal to me though. Im just happy to have this, and others.

    Not something that everyone picks up on, his foglamp "tits" angle up, kinda like BB's grill halves. It really helps the look of him! When I see how you have hime here^it reminds me of the deluxe version.

    Wow... okay so the Hasbro version has the blue-tinted windshield? I have the TakaraTomy version where the windshield is clear.

    And Lennox is wearing green instead of white. Interesting.

    I haven't opened him up yet so I'm not sure what other differences there are.

    The additional differences apart from those you have already mentioned are, extra black paint around the fog lamps, less brown plastic in bot mode, brown tinted visor with some silver lining on the bottom and black claws/hands.

    Gallery of TakaraTomy's version for reference.

    I have many pics of him, and I angle the side torso pieces up, since looking at the CG model, the side pieces are actually elevated a tad, from the middle part of the torso (the grill).

    Angle view -

    Front view -

    Also you can check out my indepth review, as well as how to ACCURATELY have this character transformed, since many people think to keep his thighs to the side, or his arms extended, giving him a dislocated arm look.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-alliance-autobot-jazz-captain-lennox-12.html

    That should take you to the page MY review is on.

    ALSO... TAKE NOTICE!!!

    the back part that can fold out to become a gun that Lennox can use, which you can see pictured here, looks better if you place it, how I have it placed.

    This doesn't make Jazz's top half feel as cluttered, and it allows ample movement of his head, as well as being able to operate the tab to lift his visor... Check it -

    Having it placed just like that, which is brought forward on the bottom hinge, but the top half is folded back all the way, gives his head plenty of room to move, doesn't make the top part feel cluttered, and to me, makes it feel more accurate to the movie, since you can see silver behind his head, in the CG model.

    Start checking my reviews, as I will show everyone how to get more accuracy out of their Transformers, said owner probably never knew existed.

    OH MY GOD! The Takara version is freakin' horrible.

    A clear visor? It's always been blue.

    Can't go without saying the person who transformed that toy, disgraces the epiawesomeness of this HA figure.

    He makes the toy look like the back has tons of kibble, when it, infact, closes up nice and tightly against each other -

    [​IMG]

    Man, sometimes people give certain TF's bad names, when there is so much more to them, if people would just fiddle around. They could make their TF's almost deadly accurate to their on-screen persona.

    SINCE I AM DOUBLE-POSTING, for the person who requested it, my post directly above, has more... accurate... pics of HA Jazz... Namely the side torso pieces folded up, as well as the two silver tabs (collarbones).

    Interesting. I prefer the clear ones, though going by my luck, the only ones I'll be able to find will be the cloudy ones. :lol

    I had bought mine from Target, and it has the clear headlights. I definitely like the blue windows better than the clear.
