Reveal the shield autobot jazz
yizhi sent me more pics
awesome i was wondering when he would turn up. it looks good, very dreamworks pat lee style jazz. cant wait to have it in hand!
I like Jazz. He looks like a fusion of G1 Jazz, Movie Jazz, and Cybertron Crosswise.
is it me or does the grill need to painted?
first pic I've seen of the rear end of the car. It looks more like a Porshe from that angle than I was expecting, though I still miss the old spoiler. The position of the new spoiler just doesn't look right to me at all.
the whole back of the car needs some paint aps too
Missing some chrome on those feet.
I'll have to slap some black paint on his collar and upper shins, but I can't get over how good this mold looks. Perfect update.
That is a sweet headsculpt.
Not just the grille, the whole rear end of the car, too! I guess all the paint-app money went to the stripes and silver shins. It could definitely benefit from some touch-ups or reprolabels. I wonder if the Henkei version will have a bit more painted detail?
Those angled feet, with the lateral rotation sculpted in, give him a nicely heroic wide stance. They might look a little odd in other kinds of poses, but who am I kidding? Most of my figures just stand planted in a line anyway.
Anyway, overall, despite the lack of paint I think he looks really nice. I like the car mode a lot, and the robot mode is spot-on; he's one of the most faithfully-G1 Classics figures there has been to date.
Why does Jazz look so pissed? He's normally smiling.
He's upset because his head is so small.
^ Yeah, I don't see it.
Anyway, Jazz seems to spend most of his time in the comics getting electrocuted, and the rest of it getting brainwashed or shot. I think a neutral facial expression is fine.
Look what I called yesterday.
Looks great! Only quibbles would be lack of paint apps and the gap in front of his neck. Be interesting to see if the United version corrects any of the deco issues.
As good looking as this mold is, its gonna look awesome with all of takatomys extra paint app.
Still the best mold of the line, IMO. I'll shell out for the United version if it comes with a painted grille and hubcaps.
Yesss! Indeed he looks much better in those pics! Looks a bit like a Porsche Boxter
I will get him!
It sure does need some paint on there. If it doesn't come that way, I guess I'll take matters into my own hands.
He is an awesome looking sculpt, though! Do want.
Very Nice, Can't wait to add this guy to my shelf!
