Review: RTS Special Ops Jazz Figure

Since 2007, fans have been dying to see Jazz return to his G1 roots. With Reveal The Shield, that hope has come. Jazz not only gets his old paint job back, but gets a look that captures his original essence. But is regression a good thing? Find the answer in this review.

I'll be all over this guy when I find him. I'm also going to write to Reprolabels to ask them to make a set for him, w/ the Martini decals and some details for the rear.

How well does the chest peg into the torso That's going to be my deciding factor on this guy.The torso doesn't snap into place, but there's enough gravity to keep it down in most instances. Only when trying to adjust the shoulders will you get some movement. Personally, it's not enough to dock the score but it could be a chiding factor for some.

After all the tactful complaints about the legs (:roll) I looked late last night. the reason I couldn't get them down is because Hasbro's brilliant QC didn't fully cut the seams. I had to spend 5-10min to finish their job. I'll update tonight. As for the light piping, the pipe is there in the back of the head but it's obstructed. At least, with my figure it is. I held a flashlight right to the window and still no light in the eyes.also, hidden feature, you can combine the speakers with the pistol to make an uber pistol. check out peaghs update to his jazz review for detailsThat was covered in the review right before the articulation specs. I even supplied a pic. :)How well does the chest peg into the torso That's going to be my deciding factor on this guy.

its on a pin, with a hinge assembly under it. theoretically it can be done, just knock the pin out then you can shave the hinge assembly down with an exacto blade. personally i dont mind it.blitz, im sure youre sick of the "you tfed it wrong dood" comments, but is this how its portrayed in the instructions also, hidden feature, you can combine the speakers with the pistol to make an uber pistol. check out peaghs update to his jazz review for details

WOW! Gotta have that figure! Can't find him anywhere in my area yet. Hopefully by the end of next week otherwise it's all about the Internet in acquiring him!The only thing I do not care for on this figure is that goofy spoiler that sits so high on the back end. Anyone know if that thing can be removed

I completely agree on the back being blan but someone has fixed that issues (mind you for himself) over on TFW2005 Radicons section. He goes by the user name of yinothing. Here is the page (link) . As for the legs, pull them down boy, lol. He does look like a midget right now but, when fully transformed, everything works quite nicely. One more little thing, The speakers, when attached to the gun, fold flat agaist it to make a sorta quadrople barrel gun. Still, love the review (other then the things stated above).

They could have done the Classics Prowl mold a while ago and I`d have been happy. :bot

nice review but you mis-transformed his legs... they ar a bit tight at first but they roll bacak through the panels by the fin so he stands a half an inch taller and doesn't look like a midgetMistransformed and incorrect about the light piping. The visor is part of the blue section on the back of his head, which is for said piping.
