    Still waiting for someone to explain why robots need lips, or why they have metal rods directly in front of their "pupils"....guess they must have some sort of X-Ray vision.

    That being said, Jazz is one of the best of the craptastic General Grevious inspired designs out of the movie. I wonder why the other ones couldn't look as clean and not so "shards of metal shaped to look like a humanoid form".

    He definately is one of the cleaner and easier on the eyes design, and his look in Maxim blows away the earlier shots we've seen of him.

    Almost as easy on the eyes as Megan Fox...

    Almost....

    OMG I was thinking the same thing!!!!!!
    He definately needs to have the viser down. With the full face, he just looks like a goofy gremlin.

    That's the reason! You need lips to kiss Megan Fox, of course!

    Jazz looks great. I think the differences between the three models is due to its Work In Progress status. Nothing to do with a reformating like Bumblebee.

    One thing I dislike about the design is the exposed internals for his um... "Top" area? It looks pretty bad, it would have been better to cover it up somehow. Shame since he's so close to an alternator otherwise.

    Yeah,

    You guys are correct...It is different...looks good.....:cool: 


    Of course...think of how much geometry ILM has of the 'Bots and all the different parts, pieces, and various stages of their development...They can swap a part or helmet, or even head with the touch of a button.....

    The answer to those questions are clear to me. Expression! The guys could smile and frown or scowl and all that...and yet their faces are made of metal. They can't give them rubber faces...that would look silly. Give the robots mouths (I would not really call them lips) and then they can smile and what not. But wait, the eyes are the gateway to the soul...or perhaps the Spark? They needed to figure out a way to make the eyes expressive. We can't see it in still pictures but I bet those metal rods will move and adjust with their expressions.

    I don't know if anyone has noticed BB's eyebrows. They are there! Just SCREAMING at me! Its stuff like that is what makes these designs so NEAT!

    I think you can modify your signature and test it by reloading the page. There's no need to do a new post. Notice in all your previous posts in this thread, there's the same signature, even so you've changed it several times in the last hour.

    Sorry for all the "Signiture test" posts. I think I got it figured out. Thanks to those who offered advice.

    As to these picts of Jazz, I think my new sig clearly shows what Id like. Its a fine Robot. Not a transformer, and since when is Jazz all dark and scary? I think they went a little too literal with actual car parts. Change is necessary when adapting this to the big screen, just not this much.

    thanks for pointing that out. I see it now. I got the thumbnail thingy to work and that should do just fine. Thanks.

    You are correct sir...This is very true...

    Look at the "Im Optimus" trailer and you can see the various parts of his face moving to form expression...The rods in front of his eves seem to act as eyelids..As I'm sure they do on Jazz as well...I mean these guys gotta relate to us somewhat...mimicing us would seem logical otherwise they would have no need for any human attributes...

    k, didn't want to know something happens to Jazz. :(  I don't mean to single you out, cause there's a few other posts that have suggested it. But damn.

    Now I need to gather enough self-discipline to ignore any and all movie posts that don't specifically have to do with toys. :(

    I think that's an excellent looking JAZZ right there. Better than any previous render (obviously)

    As I said before, Jazz is the best design from the movie - cool, sleek, takes elements from his G1 incarnation and generally you can see what he transforms into and where each part goes. Plus, he has a face. I really don't see why they couldn't have given a similar face to BB, Ratchet, Starscream... and pretty much anyone else. Jazz could do emotional signs with this face, the others... hardly.

    I wonder if the Japanese Movie Prowl is going to be a repaint of Jazz, or maybe they will rename Jazz Prowl in Japan?
