    I was looking at the pics of Drift, and thought Jazz. The mold could be a simplified retool like Sideswipe/Sunstreaker. What do you think?

    Jazz deserves his own new mold, and not be a repaint/remold.

    They're already making it into Blurr, so no. I would have preferred they had just used the mold as Jazz initially, but they don't seem to want to make a proper Jazz for whatever reason.

    If Hound or Cyclonus can get their own unique molds, Jazz definitely deserves one. C'mon -- Hall of Fame nominee!

    I actually think it would look pretty nice as Jazz (and the potential for a repaint to him crossed my mind the first time I saw the figure). As long as it got a new head, I'd be all for it.

    Jazz is a Tier 1 G1 character. He deserves his own mould without a doubt.

    Yeah, I'm going to say no. Putting aside the facts that a Blurr remold from Drift was already announced and that Jazz truly deserves his own mold... the Drift mold simply doesn't have the same chest, leg or arm design as Jazz to even begin to work. A remold from Cybertron Crosswise or Universe Prowl makes more sense, but even then I still say that Jazz should get his own mold which can than be repainted into Ricochet.

    I don't see Jazz in the Drift mould at all.

    As many have stated. Jazz is too big a character to not get a new unique mould. He has been in every US version of TF, G1, Animated and the first movie.

    There is obvious love for the character by HASBRO so why no classic/universe/generation figure?

    Other than the fact that they're bogh transforming robots that turn into white cars, I honestly don't see any similarities between the two. Like others have said, Jazz deserves his own mold, which would then make good repaint fodder as charactesr like Ricochet. If he absolutely had to be a retool of an already existing mold, than I would have to say Universe prowl would be a much better choice than Drift.

    The groupthink on here is insane.

    I think the question was "if Drift were repainted as Jazz, would that be a cool figure".....not "would a repaint of Drift be better than a new mold". Granted, an original mold might be BETTER, but if a repainted Drift was released, most of the people who just voted "no" here would probably buy one.

    Even if he did get a new mold, you'd have to see the new mold before you'd know if it was better. It might suck. You never know.

    Just voicing my obnoxious opinion. Not intended to tick anyone off. ;)

    drift repainted as jazz would be stupid, so I wouldnt buy it. because it wouldnt be jazz.

    I could go for a retool of the prowl mold as jazz, but not drift, which isnt the right kind of car OR robot.
