    I'll be getting him to repaint into Omnibot Downshift, just needs some black paint over the blue parts and a new head. FOC Jazz's eventual remold/repaint FOC Sideswipe will also be repurposed/modified into Overdrive.

    A bit disappointing, but that could be said about the first images months back. I will still get him.

    Cheap feeling, simple transformation, and small. I fear Jazz is the general mass retail release of the future.

    I still like him though. In fact I think he looks better than Shockwave, and FOC Optimus.

    I like him, not much mind u, but hes good.

    I feared the plastic would be less-than-expected when i saw the packaging(connection just makes sense to me). At least hes not that small, RTS Jazz is a fairly tall mold. :)

    Blech. The proportions look nothing like the game. He has a huge ass chest and skinny limbs. Do not like. Even just looking at the head sculpt something feels off about it.

    If I get this I'll be panel lining him and adding all the red details like he has in the game. All that unseparated white everywhere looks bland.

    I think he's ok, but I really feel so far that the FoC toy designers have to be different then the WfC toy designers, or just didn't have the same amount of time or even close to the same budget. I don't know, they just aren't capturing the game models very well from what I can tell.

    Looks pretty nice but I'm not in a big hurry to get him as I am with Shockwave.

    I kinda like it, it's not perfect but it still decent. I'm still going to pick him up just so I can mod him into Chromedome though.

    I'm torn. WFC Autobots were amazing intuitive designs that showed of Hasbros skills. These are the exact opposite. I don't know if I was
    to taint my WFC toys with these...

    Definitely looks top heavy. But what the hell I'm still going to buy it.

    Looks decent if not stellar from the pics, though the review gives me some reservations.

    Is the head supposed to be blue or black?

    Jazz has always been my second-favorite Autobot, so I'll buy this toy, but it looks like it pales in comparison to the quality of the WFC deluxes.

    RTS Jazz will be incredibly hard to beat, and this one doesn't come close, but it is my most wanted FOC deluxe shown thus far.

    This will indeed make a nice FoC Autotrooper with a new head.
