    CybPh would like to share this review of the Animated Jazz by our very own Alex :) 

    It has been posted in our Multiply Site and in our Messageboards.

    Transformers Animated: Deluxe Jazz Review
    [​IMG]

    The cool Autobot master of circuit-su, Jazz graces us in toy form as a sleek white sports coupe.


    Alt Mode:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Complete with his classic red, white and blue stripes; Jazz also sports an Autobot Elite Guard logo just above his front fender. The Alt mode is very nicely detailed with clear front headlights. He actually reminds me of a classic Jaguar coupe the way the car just curves. The rims are beautiful old-school spokes and the rear tail/ brake lights give off some more of that classic car charm.


    Bot Mode:

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Transforming Jazz is pretty simple. The doors become his arms and the trunk unfolds to become his legs. Once that's over with we get one lean streamlined bot in the classic G1 "car front end becomes chest" style.

    [​IMG]
    Looking closely at his head we can see that he's made to look as if he's got a beret on together with his headphones and soul patch. Very nicely sculpted. The visor he's got actually allows lightpiping but the extruding bonnet behind his head blocks out some light.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Accessories? Only a couple. The exhaust pipes on his doors/ forearms detach to become his nun-chucks. They're connected via string and slide into Jazz's fists. Pretty sweet.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Poseability? Jazz has around 20 pts of articulation including double hinged elbows and rotating thighs so you can pretty much do anythin with him. He can stand on one leg too though its a bit tough balancing him.

    Overall one of the best deluxe sized TF's to ever come out. Plus he sorta resembles me....

    Jazz gets a 5/5

    Man, sleek, but built. He is very stylistic and is probably the best Jazz we ever got. (now to decide if he's better than G1 Jazz)

    That vehicle mode is gorgeous.

    Jazz has some pizazz,

    shame the movie toys didn't have that kind of articulation, so far it looks like animated has the characterisation and articulation.
