Weapon: Acid Hand Blaster
It's been said before in the old Toy Fair thread, but he looks more like a Decepticon without the visor and those claws. Still liking him a lot though.

Front pages Shinobi. Thanks for finding these.

I must say Jazz looks the best out of all the bots. With his visor down he's definitely just a more stylish version of his original self. Bravo to the designer of that one.

Jazz looks cool. Not as good as baricade but he looks like a TF. I dont like the squid hands though.

Jazz is frikkin sweeet!

From far it looks like Jazz has a mouth, but he really doesn't - it's those little "vents" that create the illusion of one straight line going from one cheek to another. If you look at the mugshot on his card and the pics there, you can see it better. See attached.

Ratchet looks much better now too. He looks more bulky in that upper-body shot than the old sketch we saw where he looked kinda thin... I still don't understand why his toy is neon green when it's so clear that he's more of a yellow/orange tone in "real life".

Barricade looks gorgeous as usual.

I really hope we get an explanation for the different looks of the Bots and Cons during the movie. The Bots look more 'normal' than the Cons.

Don't they look different because the Cons are more modern?

Yeah, I'll echo the notion that they all look too much like predator monsters. I don't think you can relate to their "human" side like this. Not drawing me into the line.

I really like the look of Jazz with the visor and what looks to be lips. Mind you, Skowls probably right. Probably just the vents. Megatron still looks like he eats innocent woodland animals.

I have the feeling that in the next movie most of the bots and cons will have diffrent faces that look more human. That way the humans can relate to them more. How can "megatron" hope to take over the earth if he cant get a few hums to trust him?

I doubt any little kids will buy these books. They all look too scary and evil. "Jazz" looks like Freddy Kruger with squids where his hands should be, "Megatron" looks like he'll eat your soul and your neigbors, and Ratchet looks like that flea from Inuyasha on steroids. Optimus is the only decent looking one, but he will still scare a few kids. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most kids will look at this stuff and walk straight to the Power Ranger books.

I think that was just the lighting that made the Empire cover look like that. It's always been the same Prime design, horrible flames and all.

Nice to see some new movie stuff, this has been one ssssslllllooooowwwww news week for new TF stuff...
