Following up from the official Golden Disk Collection reveal yesterday with Road Ranger & Puffer, we now have the reveal for Chapter 2 – Autobot Jackpot with Sights! Included here is a set of images that show off both figures included in the package – Jackpot himself, a redeco of Studio Series 86 Jazz with a new head, and Sights, a redeco of Siege Pteradaxon. Its description reads as follows:
The Golden Disk is a powerful artifact with the ability to reveal knowledge of the past, the future, and of the infinite possible destinies throughout time. Discover an alternate timeline in which the quantum surge that mutated many Maximals and Predacons into Transmetals, goes very differently…
The quantum surge causes a time vortex, intercepting the Action Master Jackpot and his partner Sights, pulling them through time and space to prehistoric Earth. During the journey through the vortex, Jackpot gains the ability to convert into a vehicle mode for the first time while Sights gets a new alt mode!
Autobot Jackpot and Autobot Sights figures convert to sports car and axe modes in 20 and 5 steps. Autobot Jackpot comes with a blaster accessory that also mounts on his vehicle mode. Autobot Sights comes with a blast effect for his axe mode.
The Golden Disk Collection includes 4 exciting packs, featuring fan-favorite characters involved in the mysterious story of an alternate timeline! (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)
Includes: 2 figures, 2 accessories, and instructions.
- The quantum surge causes a time vortex, intercepting the Action Master Jackpot and his partner Sights, pulling them through time and space. Somehow the journey through the vortex gave Jackpot the ability to convert into a vehicle mode and altered Sights alt mode
- Packaging features a part of a Golden Disk graphic. Collect this pack along with the other 3 Golden Disk Collection packs to complete the graphic! (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)
- Autobot Jackpot and Autobot Sights figures convert to sports car and axe modes in 20 and 5 steps. Includes blaster and blast effect accessories
The set is available for preorder at both Hasbro Pulse and Amazon.
Let us know what you think on the boards!
Yup. As mentioned already being sold but of his batchmates, Jackpot was a pain to order initially.
Huh? It definitely was sold on Amazon. It's still available.
I know this is a dead issue and all(was this ever discussed and resolved?) but what the Ef was the reason for this not being sold at Amazon and even RobotKIngdom? For the former, it is now available.
Also, did manage to get one and had to paint his chin due to the same issue of misalignment.
I can't unsee the "Cars" style eyes being rolled 8n the windshield…
I think the problem with this figure is the face.
Never buy pie from a pierate.
I have 4 copies of the mold, all of which i've disassembled, customized, and put back together without any issues. You should be fine as long as you don't throw a nuke at it.
My Jackpot has no cracks in the windshield, and I've transformed him a shit-ton, so I'm pretty sure they fixed the stress issue in the windshield that caused it to break so easily.
I actually got rid of an unwanted tree in my yard by strapping jazz and Jackpot to it. The resulting explosion left a 20 foot crater that I need to fill in.
I haven't had issues with either of them. Just be careful with the clear parts and they'll be fine.
Does Jackpot have a tendency to crumble or explode like Jazz does?
same here, and I got the toys a few days ago , both heads of mine seem okay , which was a relief
Just saw the Toyhax set for Jackpot and this figure went from ehhh whatever to bought on the spot. Just bought the figure on Amazon and the sticker set will come out of the next paycheck

Ok as water under the bridge. I just checked amazon and the regional locks are now gone! What was so special about Jackpot that even RK could not sell him?
Agreed – Rad should be one of the ER Datsuns (ideally modified to remove the door wings, but whatever), but if we needed to squeeze more out of the Jazz mold, I feel like Kick-Off would be a great choice
Here's a pic BTW. The paint does go a bit low on his right side, makes it look a little more wonky, bit if you pay attention to the top it's basically flush.View attachment 29354760
The right side jutting forward just a little is hard to get a photo of. It's honestly more noticeable on the back of the head than the front, yet still not an issue really.
Meanwhile, I was super unlucky. Mine not only is misaligned as hell, but the head socket is so loose that it falls off the neck balljoint if you so much as breathe on it. Gonna have to use a hell of a lot of future floor polish to get the friction into an acceptable state. And then there's still the head itself and the concerns about breakage. Oh well, at least the yellow mismatch didn't end up looking nearly as bad in real life as I was worried it would be. And he's another addition to my Lost Light Mutineers, so I guess it's not a total loss?
(Can you imagine if they'd actually charged 29 dollars for this thing due to the included battlemaster? As if he hadn't already gone over badly, between the choice of mold and poor QC.)
Congrats! Care to share pics?
Damn, that's incredibly lucky! I'm glad someone got a good one.
Mine came in today, and by some absolute god damn miracle his head is more or less perfectly alligned. The right side sticks out a little bit more forward, but not very much. Barely noticable actually.
Hit the Jackpot today (he came in from Pulse), comparison with the original G1 Actionmaster and my custom from Cybertron Crosswise

On my Actionmasters shelf (some customs), hopefully will get some more official versions like Jackpot!
