    I just noticed this and found it to be pretty darn cool. I always loved the one G1 tv show outro where Jazz spins as he transforms...looks like they utilized that in the movie...

    (I know many probably have noticed it too, but just haven't seen anyone make a point of it, so I thought I might for those who didn't notice)

    Makes me smile.:thumb

    Wow, looks like the moviemakers actually paid attention to the way things were done in the...Y'know what, I'm tired of saying that, you all know it already anyway, even if you refuse to believe it.

    not sure that is quite why they did it ... I mean, they are transforming when they are driving at high speeds..... its going to happen that way regardless

    Still awesome they put that level of thought into it. With all the reported G1 easter eggs and what not, this can't help but rock.

    Jazz is full of homage.

    Though the that wasn't really a spin, so much has his legs swing forward so he can stop.

    Jazz's conversion from car to robot mode makes it look like he's break-dancing.

    Not surprising from hearing the way he talks.

    I'm pretty sure that's not a necessary part of the transformation. He was breakdancing for the hell of it.

    He definitely didn't have to throw in a handstand-freeze at the end.
