Thanks to a post on Facebook by Ozformers (a page focusing on Australian Transformers news), we have photo proof that one of the most anticipated (and certainly the most magnificent) Earthrise releases, Sky Lynx, has been found at retail in Australia! This photo shows the splendiferous Autobot in all his Commander Class glory about to be released on a Big W store in Brisbane, Queensland. The post notes that a sale is coming up in two weeks' time, during which he'll be marked down to $119AUD (currently $82.92USD), a $30AUD savings- though not all Big W locations may not stock him until then, and those that do may sell out before then.

I've got like.... most versions of that mold. Not all of them are floppy, mind you- Jazz is just the worst. But for the life of me, I can't figure out WHY they didn't make a way for his chest to lock into place.

I have the SG Stepper version, I'm also surprised they never had the chest lock in anywhere

Special Ops Jazz is great, but I’d like one with ankle tilts and no door wings. Still, I’d probably be happy with anything. Jazz is my second favorite :BOT:, and it’d be awesome to have a WFC version of him.

Y'know what'd be really cool? If whatever Jazz they end up making in Earthrise or Part 3 ends up having an option to have door wings or not, whether it's removable door wings or if they fold out of sight unobtrusively or something along those lines.

Not for nothing, the Jazz on the box has door wings.

I'm trying to figure it out. Maybe I can take a picture of the magnifying glass over Jazz on the box.

Is that Jazz? Has the red visor, has the doors on the back. And the colors aren't defined, but I guess that could be red and blue on white...

Honestly, I kinda see more Prowl there... Then again, the two of them have very similar body types with the hood chest and door wings (on toys)

I wouldnt replace my POTP Jazz if a new one came out. Sure, Jazz wasn't a combiner in G1 but I dont feel the combiner gimmick detracted anything from the toy. He looked as good as I need in my collection.

Also, I might be in minority on this but I preffer the vehicle mode on CW Cyclonus. I really love how loooooong that nocescone is. It really reminds me of that perspective shot we get in the 86 film when we first see it transform during the transfiguration scene.

I also enjoy the vehicle mode on CW Cyclonus, and wish the nosecone on the new one was longer, but honestly the idea of a potential upgrade kit for this new one to give it an IDW head and sword is much more interesting to me, as well as up my alley. Plus, even though I liked the purple used for CW, this new one looks much better, even without paint

Heh, if they do Jazz again it'll be one of the cleanest looking transformers ever, no extra tampos or print. They're not going through that again.

The old Generations Jazz is nice enough and the PotP version is acceptable.

But based on what they did so far in the current trilogy, I think a ER Jazz would be freaking awesome.
I'm looking forward to it.

I have no need for a new Jazz. I'm with Will on this one... the POTP Jazz is a nice looking figure, and the combining gimmick isn't obtrusive... frankly, he's better off not being used as a combiner limb, as neither his arm or leg modes are very stable.

Wondering if Cyclonus and possibly Soundwave are not Earthrise but the rumored Studio '86.

How does that even work, if Generations has been the GeeWun lineup? Seems redundant, but oh well. Cyclonus looks AWESOME.

Thrust pretty much sealed me buying Screamer yesterday. I love this mold. No regrets. I love its relative heft compared to the original Classics and its *just* diffetent enough in its tricks. I need some missile pods for it though.

Maverick is probably gonna be a buy on sight. Not enough Jet Autobots. My initial impression though based on the character art and the panel lines on the figure are that this is going to be more in the Studio Series Movie style which is sad but also not an unfitting way to do it.

Can we say "SDCC2020 Orphan?"

Imo, PotP Jazz is nice, but far from perfect. The vehicle is awesome but the transformation is a bit fiddly with lots of panels origami. Plus the hands are completely blocked. If you compare CW Wheelhack with his ER counterpart, they should be able to make a true "Mini Budget Masterpiece" with a ER Jazz. This could give us a preview of what a proper official MP Jazz would look like if Porche would stop sitting on their copyright for one minute.

POTP Jazz is a floppy mess of thin plastic.

Yeah. That's the part.

When I did it, I wasn't expecting any character. Even on the Leader Class box the guy is tiny. The visor was the dead giveaway.

Exactly.
He look good in both modes, but it's a bad limb and he's not fun to handle at all.
