Jazz, is that you?

Images from TF upgrader have come out today of what could be a MP scale (not)Jazz.

So it seems that the 3rd party market is at it again, with one company showing us their plans to bring us a set of MP scaled (not)Insecticons, we have since been shown 2 more, with the already existing (although perhaps not MP scale) Fansproject and Hasbro insections.

But when does choice become just to much? For most of us collectors, we can only afford one set of each team, if that. But what do I know?  So lets take a look at what is on offer and you guys can let me know what you think about it all.

In no particular order, first up we have Badcube‘s offering. With previous offerings such as Wardog, these guys will most likely be pretty good and rather G1 accurate. It is also safe to say, that one thing Bade cube do very well is release some very good images of their upcoming figures.

Then we have then more experienced Fanstoys. These guys have bought us some great figures, Quakewave and Soar to name just a couple.

So what will be the deciding factor for you? Price? Design? Company loyalty? Or will you be fortunate enough to just buy everything that comes out. Either way let us know.


If you are interested in any of the figures featured in this article, they and many more can be found at Kapow Toys:

When i fist saw this Guy I was a little underwhelmed, but I have to admit, the more I see of this Mastermade’s version of metroplex, the more I feel he needs to become part of this geeks collection! I mean, come on, who doesn’t need a super articulated , super detailed mini Metroplex??!??!? wait, he comes with a little Ultra Magnus!?! Well that seals the deal!

I would love to know what you guys think about this guy? Is he just a bit of fun, and to highly priced for such a thing? or is he going to be an essential part of your collection?
