    Bio:
    First Lieutenant Jazz is one happy-go-lucky Autobot. Good-natured and always able to take things in stride, he provides a decent contrast to the more serious demeanor of Ironhide or Optimus Prime himself. He's also a talker, something Ironhide and Prime like to tease him about. He might be the smallest Autobot but he's by no means a coward, willing to take on any foe, big or small.



    Tech Specs:

    Strength 6 Rank 8

    Intelligence 6 Courage 9

    Speed 9 Fireblast 6

    Endurance 7 Skill 5



    Reason:

    I remember when this figure came out, i knocked it SO HARD....Its was too skinny, we don't need a HA Jazz, Deluxe version was better................yeah, i know right? Lol

    I was set on not buying this one, but i was searching for a new fig to buy, and i was in target deciding if i wanted HFTD Voyager Seaspray or Leader Class Starscream, then i saw Jazz, and i swear i blacked out and when i came to, i was at my work station with a Human Alliance Jazz in front of me......hmmmm, i cant seem to figure out how i ended up buying one, but whatever.

    All i know is, all the mess i talked about this figure was shot out the window, my opinion of Jazz quickly changed, but it went beyond just this figure, i sat back and realized how amazing the boy was in G1, awesome ALT mode, Prime's 2nd in command and of course he's BLACK, lol.

    So what i did since the ALT mode paint job was flawless, i focused on the robot parts, and if i say so myself, it all turned out great. If you HAVE NOT picked this figure up yet and want more than what the deluxes have given us, why not get this one sprinkled with a little bit of greatness.

    Looks great, nice, but not over the top. Funny thing with the gun, I took that same gun, gave it a few silver paint apps, and made it a BFG for my Classics Clifjumper.

    I like all of the paint applications - it's really nice work.

    I'm not feeling the Autobot symbols or the Hot Spot gun, though. The gun is too different from the rest of the figure. The symbols don't bother me a lot, but I think that the very subtle Autobot symbols on movie figures works a little better in alt mode (even Ironhide's tailgate is embossed black).

    I like the HotSpot gun, breaks up the movie look a little to me.
    I was really just having fun touching up this fig, i wasn't trying to hit a ALL MOVIE ACCURATE look.
