TRANSFORMERS G1 JAZZ “Reissue” Knock-Off Review

The Autobot Jazz is a very popular Transformer and the original Generation One version is hard to find in great shape at a good price. This counterfeit reissue version might fill that need to have an original G1 Jazz. Captain Kyle examines this high-quality fake reissue to see if he could find a place in your collection.

Jazz, the Special Operations Officer, is one of the most popular G1 Autobots, likely in part due to the incredible portrayal by voice acting legend Scatman Crothers. While he is no longer with us, his voice acting touches the lives of so many to this day. The original toy of Jazz was a slight redeco of the Diaclone version. The original mold was also reused for Targetmaster Stepper, who is called Ricochet in the US since his reissue. This high-quality counterfeit is a great representation of the original toy. Captain Kyle examines it closely to see if deserves a spot on your shelf.

To get this toy, you can find him on:

Ali Express:
eBay: (You may also see official reissues, which might be reasonably priced)

This toy is not manufactured by Hasbro or Takara Tomy and therefore they will assume no liability in regard to quality.
