    Jazz can always be repainted as G2 Jazz and Stepper/Ricochet.

    I'm not a fan of this trend with clip on wheels either (if they have to be clip on, have it be the wheel pegging into the car), but this is thankfully an easy fix. You just pop off the wheel and then paint the tip of the peg black (even a sharpie will do).

    thats what i thought. the potp figure wasnt great, think jazz deserves some love, even if its a complete re-shell like sunstreaker. i really think hasbro have put a lot of love into this line, but i dont think we'll be getting much G1 for a while after it which is probably a good thing. we're def in a golden age of chug collecting :)

    You'll still have that gap in the center of the peg though, just less noticeable. I wonder if you can fill that center slot with some putty or styrene and then paint it?

    There would need to be some creative re-molding on the legs to be accurate for Jazz, since his transformation uses the underside of the car, not the back windows. I want one that looks as good as the RTS version, Jazz is my #1 TF.

    I wasn't suggesting just a simple redecco, for the record. :p  I wouldn't want door wings anyway. But that alt mode screams Jazz pretool or at least engineering re-use potential to me. Not saying it will happen or anything, but I could definitely see it.

    Man, Smokescreen's feet are TERRIBLY hollow. I wonder if it'd impact transformation to add a panel over that hollow area? Hmm.

    Wow normally it doesn't bother me but the way the wheels are clipped on Smokescreen really upsets me for some reason. I love the idea of an even more G1 Datsun bro but I dunno...might have to be one of those things where I see it in hand.

    If they do a version that can have door wings or not, that is fine, but Jazz without door wings is not Jazz, IMO. Jazz was my 1st transformer (bought before the cartoon debuted) and I've always been disappointed with the animation model. I want Jazz with door wings and shoulder cannon.

    I agree completely, he was the first Transformer I bought too, and that is the look I want.

    I’d like to see Sky Lynx next to Siege Jetfire.

    Smokescreen’s feet look awful. It’s a shame that they couldn’t add something to fill them out, at least partially.

    Geez....those are some mighty hollow feat on ol' Smokescreen! Well, I think I can live it with it; the old CHUG version was just a hot mess of a bad colour job on a really bad body mold. Heck I don't even think I can give mine away now, lol. Any how, despite the hollow feet on this version it almost looks like it walked off the screen of the old cartoon, which at this scale suits me just fine. A combination of some spiffy reprolabels and paint will fix him up nice. I really love that they got him looking more or less like his original race-car Datsun too.

    Do you all notice what I'm NOT seeing with Smokescreen?
    :eek: 
    Not a lot of gaps or as Dust would say "waffles" :eek: Smokescreen's bot mode looks like a scaled down MP.

    I know right???

    If you think Hasbro will pass up the chance to churn out repaints for a quick cash grab then you haven't been paying attention all these years.

    Honestly I would prefer they did Jazz without door wings. There are already more than enough white cars with door wings.
