    Addendum - the arm/shoulder panels tab into a groove, hence making the shoulder panels solid and non-floppy.

    Apologies for missing this step out.

    The figure looks better than expected but like many of the recent deluxe figures, looks cheap and uninspiring.

    I can see missing that, Does it tighten it up good so it does not have that DOTM jolt thing goin on?

    It tightens up the flap real good.

    Updated in the 1st page.

    Not looking as good as I hoped it would be, but still looking forward to it. God to see that the arms actually do clip in, them not doing so would have been really annoying.

    Actually looks a lot better than I thought. If I see him I might just grab him. I believe all guns are meant to swapped between characters.

    He seems like a decent enough figure on his own, but I'm just really disappointed that it doesn't match the sleek and cool game design.

    I don't mind the small size, as in WFC on the DS he's a light, which is the small character size.

    Looks interesting. I'll pick him up some time.

    His legs are all jacked up. This whole figure.. the details of the character model are represented, but the proportions are so wildly scrambled that none of the intent is translated over into the toy. Huge chest, tiny head.. the eensy-weensy wheels in his ankles mean that his entire legs are just wrong, wrong, wrong. It's like drawing a human face, but the ears are the size of quarters and located on the cheeks, and the nose is bigger than the chin. Jazz's chassis is the one I use in MP because the design is so good. This thing is as accurate FOX News.

    faux wheels in legs... instant mark against it from me but not an instant no... however hearing he feels cheap and his rather simple transformation I cant say I'm lusting after him.

    Also I don't think comparing him against RTS is unfair they are the same size class, same price point and same character so yeah seems fair even if the continuity is different the design style is not miles apart like animated and the movie toys are.

    It's a decent point although we should let those who are unaware know that RTS Jazz is a very tall deluxe.

    Good review, TCracker. Despite the shortcomings that FOC Jazz has, I'm still getting him.

    Fake wheels... ugh. It's like the designers completely dropped the ball after ROTF. They're not even trying anymore.

    This was always a pass for me - but considering how simple he is, he might be right for my son.

    It looks like they're saving the big guns for the Sideswipe retool. He's got a HUGE gun.

    I don't understand the need to mold in fake wheels, but at least the wheels in his chest are mostly covered.

    I like it.
