    its a great idea, i would bite if the decals were a little more, subtle, not so 80's in design. but hey, so is Jazz :lol . I wonder if you could add in some to make the ears look like headphones?

    God Awful!!! Seriously too soon to think we won't get a Jazz in this line! However with a little paint he does make a great Magnus!!

    I think the decals are nicely designed. I can imagine seeing him like that in Japan.

    Actually, Alternity Convoy was originally designed as Meister(Jazz) figure.
    I would prefer if you paint the body in white, but we'll see how you do.

    This site's about respectful criticism right (among other things) so respectfully I think the decal set is no good. When I look at it, I don't think Jazz. I have bought decals from reprolabels plenty of times but for me, this set doesn't work.

    The face works well enough, but like others said, the rest of the decals don't quite do the job. They don't really look like they belong on a car like that. Just blue lines might work quite a bit better.

    Well, I'll be honest, Delta Designed it and its his baby, but I asked for it! I'm gonna paint the outer helmet black and maybe add some silver to the arms and hands, but dude that is one fucking sick decal set! Thanx Delta!

    As others have said, I think the design is quite a bit too 80s for this figure. I really like the concept of the conversion though :thumb

    Is this correct? I mean I halfway believe you just because you're work is so awesome and I don't really have a reason to not believe you... any chance you have a source or inside info on your statement?

    Delta - I truely love the idea but not sold on the execution. I really love Jazz and I'd love to see a nity version of him but I kind of had plans to do this mold up as Bluestreak. Would that work for your style of stickers or would it need a new head? Guessing it would call for a new head. Ricochet/Stepper would be sweet from the black version

    I love the face decal. I can accept the "equalizer" design for Jazz. A little retro never hurts.

    I personally like the equalizer effect of the decals. It's very fitting for Jazz.

    My main problem is mostly with the figure itself. Paint it white and black, and it should look MUCH better.

    I have to agree with the majority here. That does not look too good, especially the door decals.

    I think they look good - very 80's, but nothing like Jazz's actual 80's deco lol

    That said, a set of stickers based on modern Martini racing stripes would be very sweet!

    I think they are well designed, but don't fit the modern theme well.
