Adam Pawlus, from Entertainment Earth has posted on twitter that Transformers Power of the Primes Jazz has a running change. Some Jazz figures coming out will no longer have MAGA written in Cybertronian letters. Instead, as can be seen in the photo below, also linked on Twitter, that part has simply been blackend to remove the writing. It will be hard for anyone to see this in the package and we by no means encourage tampering in the store to find out. This will probably be seen on the Jazz figures coming out in Wave 3 of Power of the Primes.

An easy fix it seems though I wonder if they ever dealt with it internally. Though let's keep the toys away from politics. The designer can do that on their own time.

Worth repeating. If you see a Jazz among the Terrorcons, it's likely the running change.

Yes, the designer responsible was freelance and his contract was terminated.

"Hasbro feels the need to censor my decals because of their own biases and need to pander to a select group of fans. Sad!" -Jazz.

All sh!tposting aside, I wonder if this would have happened if the decal read BLM or Antifa?

Trust me, someone will complain. It's inevitable even with the most obscure, thanks to the internet.

The question wouldn't be if people would complain but would Hasbro change it because of complaints. I doubt they would though, as we've been seeing all over a very obvious double standard.

Now that being said, I don't care about Jazz, I want my freaking 2nd wavers to show up!

i think they shouldve fixed the quality of the product itself, rather than worry about this. priorities people. the plastic used for jazz is so brittle, it breaks very easily. thats the problem that shouldve been fixed. i have the 1st rendition, doesnt bother me one bit. nor have i heard of someone not buying the figure because of the MAGA thing. hasbro is trying to appease an overly sensitive crowd, that in my eyes, doesnt even exists within the collecting community. lets not forget it was the liberal media that slandered this slogan, turned it in to something that it wasnt.
making america great again, stood for less govt control, bringing jobs back, and a fair healthcare system, etc. whats wrong with that? nothing.

Exactly ;)^ Target is having a pretty good toy sale, and seems to be ramping up their stock to support it. There are plenty of studio series, and for some unknown reason, NEW stock of old RID figures coming in. Also plenty of new stock of PotP wave 1...So frustrating that a Target store about 3 hours south of me gets wave 3, and the stores in my area are getting more wave 1... (I know it's wave 1 because New Starscreams and Grimlocks)

On the flip side, this would have been a dream for collectors of Leader Class, They had all 3 (OP, RP, and RU) as well as SS Grimlock and Blackout, and even a couple left over Leader Megatron's from TLK all in stock at the same time, at the same store! (6 different leaders from 3 different lines I haven't seen that in recent memory)...plenty of the toys I don't want :BANG_HEAD:

Hey all!
Just a friendly reminder to keep the conversation about the Jazz thing to as it pertains to the toy. All are welcome to their political perspectives, but this is really not the place to discuss it.

And on that note:
I doubt Hasbro has any desire to pander to either side. They could probably care less how liberal or conservative our money is. They'd just like to have it. All of it.
They make fun toys for children regardless of who their parents vote for.

Well it appears that the last 4 PotP toys :TAKARATOMY: releases are available for preorder on BBTS, estimated release -end of November:

PP-37 Megatornus
PP-38 Outback
PP-39 Cindesaur
PP-40 Rodimus Unicronus

So...who wants to wager if all of PotP will be fully saturated in :TAKARATOMY: before :HASBRO: by the end of November?

Also, Will *exclusives* such as Nemesis Prime, Wreck-Gar, Counter Punch & repugnus get releases by :TAKARATOMY: , or will these perhaps be excusives for thenm as well, or not released at all?

What about the 3 remaining Prime masters and perhaps any additional product we have not seen yet?

Just some of the burning questions I have as I await PotP Wave 2 Prime Masters, to show up ever, and Wave 2 deluxes to show up again other than the one time I saw them.

Man, you've seen RU show up at the stores... Dang you... I only saw him once at a comic convention. I would really like to be able to get him at a reasonable price.

Only ones left on my definite buy list are the new Wreck-Gar and Novastar. I'm pretty susceptible to impulse buying, though...bwahahaha...

This. So much this.

As for wave saturation, living in the UK, we get one or two max. So shopping online is normally my default anyway. Welcome to how tf fans in the UK feel.
