is that mold of jazz a decent mold? I like the way it looks but I was turned off by the hollow areas. is that a problem really? Is he pretty sturdy?

He is decent, but not great. His greatest problems are mainly aesthetic, such as the wide hollow chest and narrow waist.

The concept is hilarious, but the execution of the Optimus is a textbook example of why action figures can't have too many cloth accessories once they're below a certain height: between the hair and scarf, you can barely tell what he's even supposed to be.

Soundwave stole Jazz's gun!

Megatron missed the photo session because he was backstage snorting dark energon.

Megatron: Hgggnnnfllfgg...

He's also a klepto. You can see he stole Jazz's gun, and Primus only knows where he's stashed Laserbeak and Ratbat.

Although I guess technically Laserbeak and Ratbat might belong to him anyways. But the point is, they're not in the pictures either.

I do hope it doesn't wind up being terribly annoying to take off the wigs and cloth stuff in order to transform these guys. Or at the very least that the stuff isn't glued on or whatever, because that'd probably make it impossible to transform these things.

I do wonder why they went with FoC Jazz for this set instead of RtS Jazz. After all, RtS Jazz has a sound system.

If I had to take a cynical guess, I'd say it's because we had a few hundred FOC Primes and Jazzs left over.

The plastic colors on Prime are slightly dirrerent, and Jazz seems to barely share any plastic colors at all with the previous use of the mold, so that doesn't actually work. They'd have had to make these new regardless of the mold they chose.

I'm gonna put on my tinfoil hat and say that between this and Generations Nightbeat, I'm starting to suspect something happened to the RtS Jazz mold and it's unusable now.

Did people seriously pay money for these? And a premium at that?

WTF.

Soundwave is going for a little less than three dollars. Jazz is going for a little more than a buck. The highest I've seen Optimus Prime go for is just a little over ten whopping dollars. If those prices are premium, I'm one of the richest little buggers in North Carolina!

Soundwave is going for $33 shipped from CHINA and still has a little under 2 days to go.

These are Chinese listings. Just how much do you think anyone in the US will be selling them for?

I think you might have been drinking when you read the comment. Other than that I cannot fathom where you get the ideology that these are going for a few bucks. That is just ignorant. Next time you try to make assumptions, back it up with FACTS. If not, it will make you look ignorant every time.

Here's a little secret: posts like that are usually sarcastic in nature, especially with accompanying smilies :-$

And yes, some guys will pay a premium for this just to get it first. In this case, "weird" is under the same entry as "unique" and thus "valuable in the long run" in their dictionary. ;)

Maybe you should tell him to "dial down" his attitude by rolling his eyes while making ignorant comments he cannot back up with facts. What is that supposed to mean anyhow? Dial down what attitude? I pointed out the FACT his comment is a lie. How is that against forum rules? Please explain. If anything, this site needs truth from time to time considering the fact that false rumors spread like cancer on this site. Remember the Legends class debacle last winter?
