    Since Animated has been regrettably canceled, and the Bayformers one is dead for the moment, who'd like to see a Classic Jazz come out.

    If I'm not too much mistaken Classics might be coming back after the movie line fizzles, right?

    That's um...not my point. Haha!
    The question is; do you, or do you not want to see a Classics Jazz in the future. That's where I was going with this.
    Me personally, I do.

    Undoubtedly yes. I'd say right now Jazz is in my top 5 of Classics I'd most like to see.

    As Universe 2.0 is coming back next fall, and at least at the Deluxe class scale, I won't be too surprised if they do give us a new Jazz figure. I'd buy him and a Ricochet repaint of him. Same goes for Wheeljack, and a Tracks repaint/retool of him.

    Oh, and this should go in the TF Toy Discussion, rather than TF General Discussion.

    I think he means Bayformers JAZZ is dead. He died in the last film. Right now the best we have is the Legends figure and the Shattered Glass figure.

    I'd love to see a new mold, and the obligitory repaints as Stepper/Ricochet, and maybe a Decepticon like Skystalker or a Stunticon from the same mold.

    A new Jazz would be great. I actually wouldn't mind a retool of Universe 2.0 Silverstreak/smokescreen into Jazz.
    A new head and remove his rocketlaunchers and he would be good to go.
    Actually you could maybe put small speakers were the launchers used to be that you could have folded down or up in robotmode.

    But yeah I realize most people want a completly new mold.

    I know the styles are different, but Animated Jazz works fine for me.

    I would really like to see a new Tracks as well actually. He was probably one of my favorites back in G1 as well as Jazz.

    Yeah, I think I would want these before Jazz as well. As well as Shockwave.

    I've actually been fine with, believe it or not, the Legends Jazz figure filling in as my Classics Jazz for now. I know, it seems like a poor substitute, but I look at it this way:

    -The recent Legends figs (Beachcomber, Warpath, Cosmos, etc.) have essentially taken the role of G1 minibots.
    -Bumblebee WAS a minibot in G1, but now he has been promoted to a full-size figure in Classics
    -Therefore, Jazz can be temporarily demoted to minibot status for now, as if he and Bumblebee had simply switched places/roles in the figure collection. It's as if, back in '84, the full-size Diaclone lineup had included a Volkswagen Beetle, while the small choro-Q lineup had included a Porsche 935.

    Don't get me wrong, I sure wouldn't turn my nose up at a new, deluxe-size Jazz figure, and am very much hoping they make one (though honestly I'm almost more excited at the prospect of a Ricochet repaint of said hypothetical figure). But for the time being, the above line of thought is how I rationalize using Legends Jazz as Classics Jazz.

    plus, my thought on pairing them like i did is i think you could pretty easily do one mold for both (sports car with wings and dual-launchers in bot mode) with new heads for each (ala Sideswipe and Sunstreaker) but instead of a chest swap, the legs would reverse giving Wheeljack "hood shins" and Tracks "bot shins" ~ Tracks pointy toes would be WJs heel spurs and WJs car-front toes would be Tracks's...

    oh, heck yeah. Shockwave really needs some love, and the Energon mold does not count to me... (sooooo glad they resisted temptation to G1 color that mold up in in Classics 2.0)
