    You know, not all of the FoC Wave 3 line can be winners. This one is craptastic. T

    ake whatever you hated about FoC Jazz and multiply it by 100. Favorite feature of his, the fact that he is dead inside. WTF Hasbro? Give this dude some light piping. Holy shit!

    I hated taking pics of this guy. There was no way to make him look good. I left negative space on purpose to say, I guess I am better then nothing. As Charles Barkley would say.... Hurrrrrrrrrrrrrrible. He looks like he is wearing a marionette face or something.

    That face belongs in a Castlevania game. Guess I'll pass on this because I generally don't like having my Transformers give me nightmares.

    Now I feel like I need to jump and whip him in the head.

    I must be weird, because I like the look of him. Okay, the dead-eyed stare is a little offputting, but the rest of him looks pretty slick. That's a lovely vehicle mode and the red is gorgeous.

    The FoC Jazz model was terrible. I bought it for my son and within 24 hours neither I us wanted it. I was mildly hoping the retool would punch things up but it doesn't look like it did. If he pops up at TJ Maxx I might bite.

    Those eyes, they're staring into my soul.

    I'm liking this a bit more than I do Jazz. The eyes aside, I don't think it looks bad. I'll pick him up, and put a dab of paint on the eyes.

    Like that's impossible to fix. (It's still unattractive, but not a deal breaker either. )

    Does the back of his head have clear plastic or black? Planning on painting the eyes on mine and need to know if I have to pick up black as well. Thanks

    Just got mine today from HTS, his head is 2 pieces, no light piping, the reason the eyes are so dead is because they are the grey almost black plastic of the rest of his head. Tried heating mine to pop it apart but it doesn't look like it's moving for me.

    Well, did a little more heating on the head last night and used a thin knife to cut some excess glue to get the head to pop apart. The head is just two pieces and as I said above the area where the eyes are on the back piece of the head is unpainted dark grey plastic, so once I got it popped apart I first did a layer of chrome silver then a layer of clear blue which makes a big difference BUT, his face feels so sunken into the details of the head sculpt its difficult to actually see the eyes even after being painted. Now to do the same with Jazz and remove the paint from his light piping...

    I'm guessing the ball joint on his head is too different from Classics SS to perform a decent head swap?

    Much smaller. There isn't enough clearance to transform it with Classics SS or Sunstreaker heads attach and the ball joints are much different in size. Also, FOC Sideswipe's head won't fit in FOC Jazz's torso.

    Edit: Just got Sideswipe's head to fit in Jazz's torso, its a much more snug fit in Jazz's torso than it is in Swipes.

    What is up with those eyes? :lol  Dang, I think he wants my soul. :lol  Aside from that though, he still looks like a pretty nice figure! Thanks for the great review! :thumb

    Why are all the guns ridiculously big these days? It's an awesome-looking weapon, but it looks like a leader class could easily hold it and not look weird.

    Just got the figure. Other than the eyes, I love him. Maybe because I never got the Jazz mold, or maybe because I'm riding high on the character after the Masterpiece figure, but I think this guy's the bees knees. Good sculpt, beefy build to fit the character, huge gun, and the tight joints to actually pose with it. The "A" shaped legs even give him a little more stability when holding that sucker. And the paint apps (other than the eyes) are a beauty.
