Question Any idea if Jazz will get MP treatment?

Is there some problem with getting the licence from Porche? Has there been any word about the likely hood of one?

Even a third party bot would be fine by me.

Thanks everyone!

He'll get an MP figure at some point. Hopefully masterpiece Arcee will come before that. ^_^

Doesn't Volkswagen own porsche? They made an MP bumblebee so they have the rights so it stands to reason that they will use Porsche

I think his turn will come soon. I'd love to see Devcon too he's one of the coolest autobot but he only appeared in one episode.

Re: Any idea if Jazz will get MP treatment?

I think the bigger issue with him will be getting the rights to the Martini sponsor decals. Although they could misspell it like they did with the G1, Martinii. I bet if he does come out, it is a Takara only release under the name Agent Meister. I really hope they do make one, Jazz was my first "real" transformer as a kid.

Re: Any idea if Jazz will get MP treatment?

It's only logical that Takara with make MPs from reusable molds first. The Sideswipe mold and the Prowl mold were easy to recreate. Many seem to think that from the Wheeljack mold, we'll eventually get sunstreaker.

Jazz'd mold would only lead to a Stepper recolour, not sure that would be super popular for sales.

Assuming I'm right, that would be one of the reasons Jazz doesn't have the MP treatment yet, because he is a popular character.

Re: Any idea if Jazz will get MP treatment?

Jazz is coming. Smokescreen's shoulders are better suited to Jazz than Smokescreen. Also, as already pointed out, getting the VW rights is about 70% of the way to getting Porsche rights.

Also, there is G2 Jazz to repaints into.

Wheeljack should produce Sunstreaker, but also Tracks! They did all the '84 characters with Binaltech and to hear Hasui, he wants to do them all.

Given Takara / Hasbro obtained rights from the Volkswagen Group to create the Lamborghini Countach used for Sideswipe, the Volkswagen Beetle for Bumblebee, and even the Bugatti Veyron for Drift it's only common sense that they'd already have the rights to use Porsches brand for both Jazz and even Cliffjumper.

He better, but I am sure he will They wanted to make the entire G1 cast and Jazz is an important part. I'm still awaiting a Sunstreaker.
