    sorry if its been discussed. but i see him as sort of like the scarecrow from batman with that drum full of toxins and what not from his bio. which explains the dome on his head to keep the toxins from freaking him out. i could totally see him as a dark a brooding cold bot. anyway thats my two cents on him and his helmet head.

    I like that theory and it makes sense. I hope they intended to use him that way and that something like that is used in the show. Once again, good theory. Usually some people have a pretty out-there theory that is just silly.

    Much better than the "hey he's meltdown."

    I hope he's used on the show too. He's an awesome looking character.

    I want to see him go up against Prowl since they both studied together. Maybe we can get more info on Prowl flunking out of ninja school. :D

    You know, I was thinking a Mr. Freeze kind of character. Cold. And as the master of Ninja school. Prowl didn't like the way he started freakin out..not sure in what way, so they battled, Jazz and Prowl beat him. Oil slick goes into exile, Prowl leaves the training, Jazz continues as the new master.

    They never said he flunked out. Just that he never finished. Maybe he was assigned to the ark (did they actually call the ship that?) before he was done. Who knows?

    I like how he and Lockdown share the same design aesthetic with the spikes and everything. Partners in crime maybe?

    i have a feeling they are.

    but i think that jazz, oil slick, and prowl have a history together. i hope they show what happens, between the 3 in the show. or in the comic.

    Prowl said in A Bridge Too Close:" I actually did finish my ninja training..."

    I'm Thinking Oilslick is Meltdown (In the Jar/Head) and something happened where he couldn't re-form his body so he was placed in the jar then Lockdown found him/ knew of him in some way and offered him a body as payment for some purpose...

    Could be. Oilslick is different than the others.

    I thought it was "didn't," which makes more sense anyway, since he didn't seem positive that he could escape.

    But if Oilslick is Meltdown, then what's all this malarkey about studying with Prowl?

    Yeah... I'm unclear on that too...

    YTV's subtitles said he finished. But I can hear both statements in his dialog.

    Prowl and Oil Slick may have a history together.
    Oild Slick and Jazz might have a history together,
    but based off the dialogue in " Elite Guard" I don't think Jazz and Prowl have met before.

    Unless there was some memory loss involved.

    I think you're right; judging from 'Elite Guard', Jazz and Prowl did the same training (or most of it), but at different times.
