Whoa! Jazz is looking pretty sweet! Kinda wish he was more stretched out like his FoC in game rendering or the RTS figure is, but I can't complain to much. I mean he's got his g1 shoulder cannon!

*EDIT*

Just took a look at Sideswipe and my god! Just like aligned Ironhide, it's as if Bayformers and G1 got together and made this handsome piece of artwork!

It's sad that every character with door wings suddenly looks like a Bumblebee repaint to everyone. First Smokescreen (whom looks nothing like Bumblebee besides door wings, and the occasional forearm depending on perspective) and now Jazz.

Nobody deserves their own mold anymore. Let's make 100 retools of Bumblebee and name them something different. :BANG_HEAD:

This is where I point out that Prime Bee stole G1 Jazz's transformation scheme.
So Jazz looks exactly like he should.

I.e. Bumblebee is, in fact, the repaint. /meta

YOWZA!! That is one cool cat. 8)

This makes the following whom we've seen their Aligned designs from the Binder:
  • Optimus Prime
  • Prima
  • Ironhide
  • Sideswipe
  • Thundertron
  • Jazz

And maybe Bumblebee is that was his Binder design we saw on the pop-up book cover.

Yet, this Jazz seems to have a mix of his FoC counterpart's transformation scheme (rightfully so) as well as his Movie transformation with a G1 back-kibble transformation.

Indicators:
    *Rear lights (and then some) on his forearms (FoC)
    *The front of the car makes up the entire chest without splitting panels (FoC, G1)
    *Side of car detailing for shoulder-pads. (Movie)
    *Wheels in between the shoulders. (Movie)
    *Door Wings (G1)

So his transformation should be different from Bumblebee's.

Though, you do realize that this design precedes his WFC design since this art was done several years ago. ;)

Also, now I'm going to have to get the children's pop-up book since it will have more Aligned designs from the Binder like this. :KREMZEEK:

Well he looks better than Sideswipe, but that's not saying much. Gayverse Bayverse Jazz was less of a major divergence from his previous forms, so mixing the styles up here doesn't look as bad, but the fact is it's still there, so... :SICK:

Yeah? My point stands regardless. The transformation mix is there for a reason.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Something inside of me wonders why they're releasing all of this Earth-based 'bot concept art and hopes that Sideswipe, Jazz, and Perceptor will come to Prime. That may be wishful thinking...

...but how cool would it be to have a second team of Autobots on Earth with Team Prime? :KREMZEEK:

Well, my guess as to why we're getting this art revealed is because, since Santalucia made them, he wants to show his art to people so they can look at it and give their thoughts on it, and Hasbro's finally letting him show it.

As for why now they're letting him, the upcoming pop up book will have even more of this art, so maybe they're letting him reveal this stuff as a sort of prelude to it.

It wasn't really a hint. Some guy in the audience asked during the Q&A, "Will we see Jazz and Perceptor in season 3 of Prime since they're popular characters?" His question came out of the blue and seemed to only ask if some Average Joe's favorite characters will be in the show or not. Since the Hasbro guys couldn't say much about who is or who isn't gonna be in season 3, they gave the same ambiguous "Stay tuned" answer that they gave to more than half of the questions asked at that panel. ;)

I like the car mode, the bot mode, not so much. I do think it looks ok if they ever made a movie-verse animated series though.
