    There's nothing to know. He's a new character based on an obscure store exclusive who had no character.

    Just enjoy the toy for the color scheme.

    I really like the rts Jazz mold and don't mind adding this third iteration to my collection. The colours and new head are great. And more c clip speakers wootz. My one gripe isn't really the toy's fault. Knowing this i s an homage to an obscure Universe 1 figure and armada to boot. I have no real connection to this toy, personally i'd have rather had an Sg Scourge to round out the Sg season 3 trio., that notwithstanding Treadshot is still nifty

    I have to agree with some of the guys on here, even though he somewhat obscure I think this is one of the best out of this year's exclusives. Just noticed the odd bit of yellow on the side of the car though. I'm guessing it's there because of being part of the gang molding for the thighs and neck joint, being as those were white on Jazz so they matched in car mode. So much about car mode are awesome like the stripes and grill area. I also like the head sculpt a lot and I dig the black goatee.
