    We haven't seen him in years, then when he gets in the movie, most of his scenes are cut.

    Now with Jazz in animated, he doesn't seem to be in any of the cast lists for the rest of the series. Not to mention that in one of the Elite Guard episodes he didn't appear at ALL.

    This really sucks. I wish they'd add him to the main cast. I'm already starting to get bored of the current team, I love animated but the core Autobot cast doesn't seem Transformery enough to me. The Decepticons have a better lineup even with just Megatron, Lugnut and Blitzwing.

    I'm hoping season 3 adds more characters to the core cast of Autobots.

    Seriously, people joke about Hasbro giving Cosmos the shaft... But Jazz is a fan favourite and one of the main line up of the 80s cartoon and comic.

    No Classics, No Titanium, his "proper" alt gets scrapped for one with a mould that suited Shockwave better(who also got the Spoiler not Jazz WTF), poor movie toy, few scenes in movie, pathetic last scene, and now he's barely in animated.

    Jazz is my favourite TF:A Autobot too. Dammit guys, you've given us awesome decepticons, give us more awesome Autobots like Jazz. I'm getting tired of Bumblebee's peppy attitude and jokes about how grumpy Ratchet is. I don't feel like I can relate to the current cast, I was hoping I would by now. While the show itself is great it's still missing that something.

    Bumblebee annoys me to no end, and Prowl does nothing for me. Not a big fan of Bulkhead either.

    I will gladly welcome Jazz, Ironhide and Wheeljack (if he ever appears in Animated).

    Perhaps "The Man" is running Hasbro?

    Also wasnt he the first autobot to die or actually the only autobot to die lol.
    that is helping with the old movie stereo type :) 

    I friggin loved jazz in G1 and the design I thought was awesome for the 2007 movie then they kill him which is pretty much sums up my lack of enthusiasm with the movie its self.

    Bonecrusher and Brawl were my other two most anticipated bots and after seeing the movie I felt i should have friggin read the damn leaked script first .

    Oh please!

    I'm just happy enough that Jazz got put in for a little while.

    And there are other characters coming in. Whether they are one shot deals remains to be seen.

    Jazz has still gotten infinitely more love than guys like Brawn, Hound or Trailbreaker ever have post G1. Which is a real shame.

    That said, I think it's a little fuckered that we're not getting him in Classics 2.0 just because there will be an Animated toy of him... even though he's only slated to be in 1-2 episodes of the first 2 seasons... that we currently know of.

    Don't forget jokes about how clumsy Bulkhead is and everyone learning the value of teamwork.

    Pretty much the only character I CAN'T STAND in Animated is Sentinel Prime. Animated Jazz is awesome.. one of my favorites. I'd rather see him every week instead of Sentinel.

    And we need more CONS!

    He'll probably be back during the season finale,
    and who knows how many times the Elite Guard will show up in Season three.

    But you Jazz fans are lucky, at least you got to see him fight.
    With Ultra Magnus all we got to see is him stand there and shoot lighting at people.
    Unless you count getting that surprise face full of Null-ray from Starscream.

    Jazz got "shafted" because he's a side character. As for pulling the main cast out, well... I'd rather have five consistent strongly written characters than a bunch of others that only get moderate amounts of focus.

    Because Shaft is black, and so is Jazz.

    Damn right.

    Eh, I hope he does show up more often myself. He's probably the best of the three Elite Guard that we've seen so far. It'd be nice if he were to join the main cast on Earth, but I can't really think of a way that would even make sense from a story stand point considering his apparent high rank within the Elite-Guard. I mean, he may not be a Prime, but to be the Supreme Commander's ninja? Yeah.

    Though, I find it strange that based on the cast lists... Blurr's going to be showing up an awful lot this season...

    I'm really hoping for another Prowl center episode.

    I want to see Prowl and Jazz go up against Oil Slick and Lockdown. I think it would be an awesome episode.
