    Can't believe there isn't already a thread for this guy. Currently my most anticipated legends figure.

    Photos of the Stepper repaint.

    He turned out really good, but I still prefer my Rush Beats.

    The repaint is Stepper btw :D 

    It looks amazing BUT I hope there’s a door-wing option!

    Yeah I can't quite figure out where the doors go to , they aren't part of the arms or anything. But this a great looking figure. The alt is fantastic, both colour schemes.

    Jazz looks great. Prowl still looks great. I wish they had shown off that Megs because hot damn he is just a tiny MP. I may have to actually pay attention to New Age. I

    just wish they weren't all scaling with Dutch.

    Thanks. And I don't think there's a door wing option, unfortunately. You can see the doors on the inside of his lower legs.

    Actually no, I think the doors fold up and bring the arm/shoulder up to reach the chest wheel wells. I think what you're seeing on the legs are the spoilers.

    Doors are on the inside of lower legs. Look at the door 4 on Jazz and the door flames on Stepper.

    Correct.

    There are no flames on Stepper's spoiler and there is no 4 on Jazz's.

    Also the spoilers can plainly be seen on the back of the leg.

    I'm pretty sure...

    Yeah, that. You can see it really well in the hand stand Jazz pic.

    I’m going to wait on Magic Square for Jazz, but I may still grab the Shockblast remold for nostalgia reasons.

    i cant tell for sure but i think jazz might be taller than prowl. he has better portions that is unmistakable. but maybe it is the photos creating that illusion. but from what i am seeing it looks like he might be a tad bit taller than prowl. if that is the case color me confused.

    I’m in for Stepper. I can’t resist that color scheme.

    Yeah Stepper looks amazing. If only it was a bit bigger I would bought them all.

    like i said it could just be the pics and the cleaner bot mode jazz has. but he just comes across as a taller bot. but maybe the lack of wings makes him look less stubby like prowl.

    Do we have any pics of Magic Square Jazz, apart from the head pics?

    Don't think so, no. I also wonder if magic square can top these alt modes, they don't quite have the knack with subtle curves, even though their bot modes are more proportional.

    So far I've been going with NA for some minibots (Bumblebee and Cosmos) with MST for the others...

    But hot dang if this isn't a fantastic Jazz, and their Ironhide and Ratchet beat the pants off even the Masterpiece versions. And their Megatron looks great too... I just really don't like DX9's Optimus, which they keep using for shots and so makes me think they might not bother with designing their own.

    Oh well, I've got room in my collection for a few extras of some characters. I've always really liked Stepper, and I definitely have no qualms about a second Ironhide. :D
