Got my 1st box of 2 for the Jin Bao oversized Bruticus today. Got Brawl, Swindle, Vortex and Onslaught with no weapons/combiner bits or Blast Off yet. Very impressed so far but have yet to transform

Jazz has arrived in New Zealand!

Image

But to be honest I am pretty disappointed. The chest comes apart easy and the side panel on its right leg won't stay in. In fact, the lower legs are pretty poorly put together. I don't mind panels coming together but they need to be secure. See Badcube please.

But does it look like Jazz? Hell yes! Will I replace it with a TT version? I suspect so and I was really wishing I wouldn't need to.

Also received my Reprolabels! Just insignia's but it's the first time getting Decepticon ones. Looks great!


Disclaimer: I found the instructions useless for the legs so help me if I am wrong.

I like that you have gone with doors down for jazz.

Sorry for the disappointment bruv. Nothing worse than anticipation being dashed

Doors down all the way! Jazz with wings is cool but going full G1 is way cooler.

After spending a bit more time with it I actually rather enjoy the figure now. It's definitely flawed but it looks so damn good.

Thanks to Sledgehama for getting me the Wave 3 Deluxes while on sale at Farmers (even if shipping killed the deal)

- Legends Super Ginrai - Great figure, crap legs. The legs need a better way to hold together.

- Legends Brainstorm - Brilliant reuse of the Blurr mold. It's the Shriner car that sold me on this version.

- Titans Return Bumblebee - A definite nod to the otherwise better CHUG deluxe, but tucks the back away inside his chest to eliminate the half shell hoodie. Probably one of the better Bumblebees in this size class to date.

- Badcube Lorry - great figure, crap legs. Went with this to pair up with Wardog and the upcoming MP Grapple. Although he does make Wardog look short even at his shortest leg setting as pictured above. The two knights included with this set are unfortunately horribly out of scale.

- Iron Factory Ultimate Commander - Great figure, crap shoulders. Comes with a freebie Alleria the Lady Commander for the first issue of this set. Didn't impress me as much as Lord Scorpion, but it's not bad apart from the limited articulation in the shoulders. I'd recommend leaving off the shoulder pads for the super mode as they just about wipe out the already limited range of motion in the shoulders.

Talk to Farmers to do a branch transfer to Palmy, costs you $7 and toys are 25% off at the moment.

A few wave 3 figures arrived this week so I thought I'd share in case anyone is interested.

Voyager Optimus: to be honest I'm not entirely sure this was needed. There is a decent leader and the mould was meant for Octane. With that being said he is an ok figure, the truck looks nice with plane parts hidden, plane doesn't work so well, robot has kibble but the tail folds up nicely on his back, he looks like Optimus and he has a different face to the leader.

Voyager Megatron: meant to be Bltzwing. Good figure, tank looks solid, jet is solid, robot looks like Megs. This mould gives Optimus extra points for being the same size.

Leader Sixshot: nicely done overall. Legs are like Blasters rather than his G1 self. I caught myself a few times thinking it should be like this rather than that. Lots of master interaction.
