    Hey everyone! i've decided to revive Jazz! here's a backstory to how he came back to life and why he has some blue on him.

    Quote: "I'm back, little bitches!"

    Bio:
    After Mission City, Ratchet decided to store his fellow bot's parts away while he tried to find a way to revive him. When he remembered that the allspark brought Earth electronics and vehicles to life, he secretly broke off a little chunk and revived his teammate. When Jazz came back to life, his upperbody fell of his legs. Ratchet then modified him to be able to survive if he got cut or torn at the middle. When he was reintroduced to his teammates, he used an old codename of his: Blues. Everyone was excited to see him back to life, except Skids and Mudflap cause they had no idea who he was (they were never filled in on the code names.) Now with a new paint job and unique abilities, Jazz is ready to kick some Decepticon Ass!

    Pictured here is his robot mode, his broken mode, and his vehicle mode. He's also shown with fellow hiphop bots Skids and Mudflap.

    Watch him kick some Decepticon ass (while his lowerhalf unknowingly kicks Skids and Mudflap's asses :D )

    I always wondered since seeing RotF, why didn't they use the piece of the shard to bring Jazz back anyways. It brought Megatron back. Unless it can only be used on Decepticons or something. <_<;

    I have a theory after watching both movies. Have you noticed that everything the allspark resurrects, animates or repairs are decepticons or feral robots? Maybe what the allspark gives is life, but without the restraint or sensibilities of fully mature bots.

    Hence in theory, by using the spark shard on Jazz, Ratchet may risk turning him feral, and probably they can't bear to kill him one more time.

    Additionally, this theory kind of explains why they can't use it for optimus as well, thus needing sam to make that trip to obtain the matrix, for only that can bring back prime in all his sanity. And he is a Prime after all. Different breed/race altogether compared to normal bots, even megatron.

    Which version of Jazz did you use for this repaint? Premium or regular?

    The blue you used does look nice on the mold, but the paint still has the appearance of being caked on (particularly the silver). Still need to work on your detailing...what size brushes do you use?

    And your photos are a little blurry. Have you tried tinkering around with the settings?

    Sorry to bring you down like that. I just want to see you improve your skills. Many of us at Radicons do.

    It's okay. when i was working on him i was working on a lot of other projects too, so i lost focus. I'll smooth out the paint with sandpaper. I'm glad that there are people to encourage me.
