If I were a wealthy man...
Seriously though, why Jazz? That toy is universally reviled. I'll admit I can't think of a lot of alternatives FOC-wise, but still

This is it. This is the pinnacle of Transformers. Nothing will ever be better than Hair Metal Prime.

If only I could afford it.

I need a WFC Megs, but not with a flaming hair style and a wacky paint job. :SICK:

I have complex and detailed opinions on this, but for now, I'll just say that this reveal has me on a hair metal listening spree.

My first thought was "WTF".
My second thought was "strip off most of the crap accessories, and they might look decent"

Nothin's Gonna Stand In My Way...of getting these!


(actually, I'm not arsed about them, but I do appreciate the novelty value. At least it wasn't something ridiculously Mass Market appealing like say a G1 leader in classics style)

Maybe they had a truckload of them headed for a landfill in New Mexico and decided to use them for this instead.

Nothing can top the one behind the Video Game Crash of 1983. :twisted:

Seriously though, we have Prime vs. Megatron, Blaster was unavailable for Soundwave so they went with the next best music geek... I'm guessing.

Nice idea, but that's all it is.

Holy God yes. This is freaking hilarious. If I had the money I would totally buy this and display it proudly. I love this so much.

I'm not sure what to say. It's not something I'd ever want, but I'm kinda pleased it actually exists.

I harness my inner Yoda when I say...


Break me a F$%^&*G give!!!

I would expect something this crazy from Takara Tomy but not from Hasbro. Gosh will these be stinking up Hasbrotoyshop.com. Maybe. What is this abomination going to set people back $99.99? $129.99? Dare I say $149.99?
