Not quite: MP takes robot mode scale, but HA took vehicle mode scale (I believe it's roughly 1:24 like the Alternators and Binaltech) and the two haven't always aligned exactly. HA's main selling point was interaction with included human figurines (Hence the name), so accuracy was compromised for the sake of the gimmick, as cool as it is. Also, HA began when MP was still in its infancy somewhat, between MP-8 Grimlock and MP-9 Rodimus Convoy, long before new-mold Movie MP was even thought of.

They could have trimmed down Human Alluance Jazz and called it a day. I half expected it tbh. He was definitely the least encumbered by human gimmicks

We did news a review of the figure yes.

Also, Optibotimus has requested we not post any of his reviews on the site.

On another note, how does he have one 4 months before release?

They basically did that with Movie the Best Soundwave, it's just the HA figure with all the human interaction parts removed. It looks pretty good next to MPM-3, too, thanks to the movie accurate deco.

Pre-order limits maybe? They're only gonna make so many?
