a few people have said how utterly awful FoC Jazz is. I seem to have missed something here. Why is he so bad? He looks alright in pics.
Awful? Not quite.
Is he bad? To some degree.
He's literally full of holes, he's undersized, and ultra lightweight. I've held Unicron Trilogy Scouts that have more weight than he does. (It's ridiculous how cheap he feels.)
Imagine a painted eggshell with accessories and you have a close idea as to what Jazz really is. His transformation's wonky too.
You do have to flex some of his panels to make the tab and slot system work to hold him together. (His plastic is thin enough that you can actually flex him.)
Jazz is one of those characters that's gotten the short end of the stick throughout the years. His Reveal The Shield figure was good, it still is, but it was really the first figure for Jazz since '84... And once we got him, we were hoping for more when we heard he'd be in FOC. Instead...we got...this.
Is it worth buying? Yes, at $12+ $16+? Not so sure. Shockwave and Optimus seem to have their act together. Not sure why Jazz got shafted here.
