Autobot Jazz has studied Earth culture since he first became aware of it. He loves everything about it - the music, the movies, the vehicles, and - of course - the style. He's usually a pretty chill guy, being a cyber-ninja and all, but he can barely contain his excitement at finally getting to check out Earth and give his new vehicle mode a spin. His excitement won't make him forget his duty, however. He is a master of hand-to-hand combat, with the fastest fists on Cybertron.
I wonder if those were his last words when Megatron made an example out of the ever-loyal, fierce, and dearly-missed first-lieutenant Autobot Jazz Transformer.
I do like this Autobot Jazz figure and among the current crop of figures on shelves he definitely stands out visually. In terms of play value, he's very basic and not quite as impressive as Special Ops Jazz. If you're expecting a figure like that, skip this one. If you want a basic Transformer with a cool transform and some really nice deco and detailing, then this is the figure for you.
Even though AUTOBOT JAZZ adopts aspects of every culture he visits, he also retains many of the traditions of ancient CYBERTRON. These traditions are important to him - they ground him and help him appreciate the new and exciting things around him. One of those ancient traditions is the inscription of glyphs on his armor before battle, a task he goes about with grave seriousness.
