So much for no Optimus...
Is that, is that Jazz I see?
You know, I was actually going to forego any purchasing of this line with the exception of Prime, but if Jazz is on the table, then I want a deluxe and a legends class version of him. Right. Now. Hasbro.
Get it done...
* screams incoherent words *
Yeah great point...
Yes would like to see it now!
boo yah jazz so that means now we have
bee, grimlock, strongarm, fixit, sideswipe, optimus, drift and jazz confirmed
p.s possible other autobot according to IMDB it says arcee will return
Sideswipe and Strongarm
Now that I've settled down...
So glad to see Jazz again! I hope he's joining the main cast & isn't like Jackie from Prime.
His design looks great, I like the retractable visor. And he's smiling... glad to see that his personality will be intact! (He also looks like a badass in the night lol)
How is using common, although stereotypical, features of a particular race being racist? Any time a character actually has "character" people want to play the racism card. Hopefully Jazz doesn't sound black or the world might end.This world has become a sad place.
On topic, drift looks like shit imo. Jazz looks badass
Maybe it's just me, but the way Jazz is designed, his toy could end up being TFP Smokescreen with a new head. Maybe even the upscaled Cyberverse toy.
I'm so glad these dweebs are our first line of defense against the Ex-Con uprising.
(via dance dance - Sand Lake )
Drift looks good, I'm guessing he'll be a Yoketron-esque sensei to Sideswipe. Which is somewhat stereotypical, but also awesome.
And I think those are little ninja-bots doing training. I can't really see how they turn into gauntlets, let alone do a Gurren Lagaan.
Those "body touch" scenes are weird. I'll just have to watch them in their intended context. But Side-Arm looks to be a definite angle already, after all most chicks dig bad boys.
Jazz is always great to see in a TF show/film. His removable visor is a nice touch.
And Optimus Prime not sticking around for too long... he's probably heading back to Cybertron, in which case we got a possible great angle here: how would things have changed with Megatron's disassembling the Decepticons and other stuff?
Better interaction and characters than Prime, in my humble opinion. The fact that everyone seems to like dancing is a plus.
That's funny, I saw the screenshots without reading who it was and I thought it was the RID incarnation of Smokescreen.
I'm probably not the first to have mentioned this, but anyone else feel this iterations feels a bit like Megaman X with all the decepticons having some sort of animal motif? I can hear the announcer already...
Next thing you know, Bumblebee & Co are collecting their powers...
In all honesty though, I'm hoping good things. I do dig the Decepticon animal theme in robot mode with (mostly) vehicle alts rather than just being predacons. Brings a lot of character and I think it's fun for kids as most villain fodder in kids shows tend to be some random animal things. (power rangers, ben 10, pokemon, digimon, etc)
I was skeptical about Prime, and seasons 1 & 2 turned out awesome. I was a huge man of animated too, and this looks like a cross between both. I only hope they release all the decepticon toys and maybe have a few more to even out the ranks. AoE was so disappointing toy wise...
Any theories if Megatron makes a return?
If this is what the new cartoon is, then I'm out. Sorry Hasbro, but you lost me with Strongarm copping a feel on Sideswipe. Maybe she's not copping a feel, but from the images I'm seeing, it's bad touch territory.
Jazz? And Drift? In the same show?
RID can't come soon enough. I'm super excited for things to kick off.
