    Ok so i got all the movie toys out right now. and im looking at how well done most of the deluxes are. Bumblee is tops. and all the others are pretty sweet and close to accurate. but then i look at jazz. his hands are so small.and he has that huge back that doesnt come close to how it looked in the movie or game. I love the little dude but why didnt he get the attention that all the others got. is there a chance for a voyager jazz anytime?

    Highly doubtful. Which is kinda a shame, but at the same time, then he'd be out of scale with the rest of them. But when one looks at the Decepticons, that arguement goes out the proverbial window.

    Jazz is done... 3 versions is all he's gonna get. While I do agree he didn't get the attention he deserved, he did die after less than 5 minutes of screen time. And in his time, all he did was say a few things then die.

    The deluxe brawl toy is weaker then jazz imo. I like Jazz, except for those odd arms.

    Jazz got shafted. Don't like what we (by we I mean the general public) got? Scratchbuild your own, or customize the existing one. I still agree Jazz did not get the full 'movie' treatment, I don't think it's worth losing sleep over.

    No sarcasm intended but:

    Cut it off, maybe add something to it (something simple, bent paperclips, anything) to clip it on in vehicle mode. That's what I'd do. But Im just gonna wait for Final Battle Jazz. Better gun makes the backpack acceptible.

    You can semi fix the hands but I doubt anything can be done about the back-pack.

    The backpack is in the automorph... Probably too risky to work with without destroying the figure...

    I like him the way he is :)  The arms are weak indeed but I consider them as unique.

    if not for his chest automorph gimmick, his arms could be a lot better. in order to try and stay close to the movie transformation, the hood had to become his arms, and because of the automorph, they couldnt use anything under the hood as arm parts.

    The whole deluxe is a train wreck. The arms are terrible, the doors on his thighs prevent any good poses with his knees bent, and he looks stocky and fat. With no exageration, I can say he is the worst deluxe transformer I own IMO.

    Fold the spoiler up on his back, add a dash of red here and there.

    Ta-da, movie accurate back.

    He's prolly my favorite deluxe. I gave him an alternate arm transformation which makes them much better (no mod required) and the little hands don't bother me a bit. :)

    The arm panels are not fully flush with the arms, but it's close enough.

    Without anything new to contribute to this thread I'd like to point that I like Jazz. :)  A masterpiece he is not, perfect he is not. He's chubby, stubby and I like him, arms and all. Could use a coat of silver paint tho. :p
