    The head is from Botcon Jazz, and the body is the Chevy Aveo mold.

    That does look really cool..
    However, this must win some kind of award for the most expensive (potential) deluxe kitbash ever!

    But if anyone is feeling brave (and wealthy) , I say go for it.


    and I may try something similar later in the year when I get my hands on a classics Prowl or two ;)

    Whatever happened to the rumors of the yellow aveo? Did those get squashed or should I remain hopeful?

    Hm. I've just been sort of assuming that the Aveo will make an appearance sometime down the line in mass-market form... though of course, I have nothing to base this on! :) 

    This bash works really surprisingly well. I mean, an Aveo is no Porsche (or even a Solstice), but the robot mode has just the right feeling. Cool!

    An unfortunate truth :( 

    Though I have the same feeling SMOG does that it will probably be used in a future toy-line at some point. Hopefully Hasbro throws us a massive bone and not only releases it, but releases it in white.

    The Jazz head will probably end up on a reproduction site like Aloysha's Corner.

    To do this now, though, would probably cost $300+ :eek:

    And with going from the likes of a Porsche (aka high-performance sports car) to an Aveo (aka economy POS), that indeed would be an expensive DOWNGRADE for Jazz.

    Considering the Universe Prowl can so easily be modified into a Jazz, I would think that would be the more prudent move, especially with the alt mode he'd then possess.

    I'll join in on wishing the aveo mold got a real release, maybe with some remolding to get around licensing trouble.

    True... but my only problem with that is, with Smokescreen, Bluestreak and Prowl already using that mold, wouldn't seem excessive to use it for Jazz too?

    Of the same mold? Just 3.

    And they were always "clones" of each other. Prowl and Jazz... not so much. Less so their cartoon models, which were even more different due to Jazz's more contained and rounded forms, and lack of wings.

    well, you can bet that in Universe, the car will get remolded man. they'd remove Prowl's lightbar, for example. I wouldn't be surprised if for Silverstreak if they didn't remove the spoiler too. At worst, you'd only have Jazz and Smokescreen looking the same, but with different heads and drastically different decos, it wouldn't be that bad to me.

    Naaahh... wouldn't be so bad at all. I mean, I made a Prowl out of Barricade, so we fans are flexible that way. You just KNOW that within a couple weeks of Classics 2.0 hitting, we're going to see a lot of Prowl-to-Jazz customs. :) 

    Though I'm not sure why, since it's almost a given that we'll get at least a Bluestreak from that mold in the future, if not a Jazz too. Either that or I'm sure he'll get his own mold soon enough.
