Re: Andrew Griffith Shares Transformers: Robots in Disguise Jazz Character Model

Postby crazyfist » Tue May 13, 2014 1:25 pm

Jazz has always been my favorite Transformer. I love the new design by Andrew Griffith. I'm so happy that they still make toys of him and that he makes appearances in the comics. But as a 'popular' character, he really hasn't been that big of character. He makes rare appearances in most everything Transformers nowadays. I guess there really isn't a story line that requires his special ops training. I liked how he got pretty decent appearance in 'All Hail Megatron' series and ever since the beginning of the 'MTMTE' and 'RID" series, he's only had cameo appearances. I know there are hundreds of characters and all and Jazz being my favorite makes me a little bias, but I really wish he'd have a little more to do in the series. It looks like he's coming back though in the 'second season' of 'RID' which is good. I hope they don't kill him off like in the movie because apparently he might have to pay for killing the police officer way back. Of course in the IDW universe, most bots don't stay dead...

Andrew Griffith Shares Transformers: Robots in Disguise Galvatron Character Model

Postby Va'al » Tue May 13, 2014 5:06 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
In addition to the previously shared concept art of Jazz, from IDW Publishing's Transformers: Robots in Disguise, artist Andrew Griffith has also tweeted the character model for the new leader of the Decepticons, in his new body: Galvatron. Check him out below!

Some love it. Some hate it. Here's Galvatron's redesign for #RID he now transforms into a mobile battle cannon.

Hm... I wonder if this Galvatron is set to become a toy. He seems to have a big backpack, which makes me wonder if the design has been changed to reflect what an actual toy design looks like.

This Galvatron better have a toy [and not a Deluxe]. If not, then I'll just curl up in a ball and cry for two straight hours.

While I am doubtful that this Galvatron will be made into toy form, looking at it does scream toy more than previous G1 Galvatron designs. Actually, given how he apparently now has an earth mode (or something close to it) I'd say that the chance of getting a new Galvatron is more likely than before. But I refuse to get hopeful.

And yes. He better be a Voyager if it happens.

*sniff* I smell compliance for a redesign due to there being an upcoming toy we know nothing about (yet).

Seriously though, that is a really good design, even if there is a lack of purple. I'll take this design as a toy even if it was a Deluxe (cue the "BLASPHEMY!" comments).

I've been hoping for a newer, bigger, better, G1-ish Galvatron (like the Energon mold) ever since my disappointment in the Deluxe CHUG mold. I would really be interested in a Voyager or Leader/MP sized figure of greater quality for this iconic character. Incidentally, I've always preferred a darker, more powerful, gravelly-voiced Nimoy-esque Galvatron than the whinny, crazy Welker-version (no disrespect to the great Welker intended, of course).

No sir, I don't like it. Looks bulky and ugly and stupid. If they're designing a toy of it, that's fun and all... but they should probably redesign the toy to look more like Galvatron.

Jazz is passable, nothing to get excited about really as it looks fairly similar to his pre-ongoing body. Galvatron's design sits well enough with me so long as it maintains the giant shoulders from his previous IDW designs, as I never really liked his design before that anyway... actually I just don't like Galvatron at all, but hey if someone can put big shoulder pads and/or arm guards on a mech design then I'll be pleased.

Not bad, it still LOOKS like a Galvatron, which is more than we can say for the movie-verse iteration. In my opinion, it could do with some more purple just to keep it more inline with G1, but that's just because I'm a rabid GEEWUNNER.

While I like the design I do think it is unfortunate that he has an earth mode. The previous Galvatron design in IDW was pretty freaking sweet and a toy of that (not counting Mania King) would have been nice. Most likely we will get ANOTHER earth mode Galvatron that sacrifices his original appearance to be more inline with modern ascetics.

Sigh. It's unfortunate, but I'm not complaining really. At this point I'd take this design over the misguided attempt a few years back any day.
waiting for these:

Generations Optimus Prime
Generations Megatron
Generations Legends Cliffjumper
Generations...oh just the lot of them.
