So, what's the real beef?
Besides him being RTS Jazz's poorer Cybertronian cousin, FOC Jazz is also a victim of a horrible lack of paint apps. He's covered in detail, but the bright white plastic obscures it all. He looks worlds better after being given a panel-line wash, some drybrushing on his inner engine workings, and paint apps for his tail lights and energon lines.
Sizewise, and although this was never Hasbro's intention, he scales well with the larger WFC figs (except Arnold Schwarzenbee, of course) because he's supposed to be a medium to smallish character.
As for my thoughts on the FOC line, it's a mixed bag.
My okay list for FOC is: Starscream (naturally), Shockwave, Jazz, Grimlock, Soundwave and Kickback.
Meh list: OP, FnR, Air Raid/Fireflight, UM.
Sh!tlist: Combaticon set, Ravage.
