Genzhao has posted images of a new repaint of the movie deluxe Jazz toy in colors reminiscent of Generation 1 Smokescreen. While this character made his way to the first movie's lineup as a Fast Action Battler repaint of Jazz, there was never a repaint of the deluxe toy (too many already at that time maybe?).
Well, since the character that that particular mold represented will not be making a return to the screen in the sequel (at least that we know of), the mold can now be brought back and used as the Autobot's famed Diversionary Tactician, Smokescreen, who has been amongst the lead characters in the Transformers ROTF Prequel Comic 'Defiance'.
Below you can see some of the images, but the original thread has even more pictures (sorry no robot mode yet).
UPDATE: GenZhao has now posted images of the robot mode. Scroll down to see them all.

The colours on this thing really don't say Smokescreen to me, what an uninspired effort.

Don't get me wrong, i like the Jazz toy, but i wouldn't buy Smokescreen because i already have three movie Jazz figures (original, allspark blue and G1 redeco). Besides, the Universe Smokescreen was great, therefore this one looks like a poor effort.
Will it be bought by the hurried father for his kids' birthday ? Yeah, of course. But i can't imagine BBTS buying whole containers of these figures expecting to sell them all. So, a few of them will be sold, and in 20 years they will a thousand dollar worth rarity. So get one now !

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I saw this figure in package on another forum and he comes with that lame telescoping thingee that the first issue Jazz came with, not Final Battle Jazz's wicked film accurate cannon. This repaint would have been at least somewhat appealing if Hasbro had at least thrown in the better weapon.

Not a very good one either but still ANOTHER FREAKIN' REPAINT!
Both the previous movie line and (by the looks of things) the ROTF toyline aren't even trying anymore. They only release around 10-15 new molds and then repaint them all in different schemes and sometimes even retool them a little to pose them as either G1 repaints of themselves or as other characters.
THEN the movie line decided to take previous molds from other toylines and, you guessed it, repaint them aswell. A good move in general for those that didn't get the opportunity to buy that specific mold, but I fail to count it as new as all it is, is a repaint.
From what i've seen the Constructicons are a big let down, Megatron is passable, Optimus looks ok but needs a gun, Jetfire is hideous and probably the only new figure I am looking for to is The Fallen himself
*sigh* and they are cancelling Animated for THIS
Sideswipe looks cool though!

Hasbro reads many of the posts here, but keep in mind we collectors are in the minority of folks who end up buying these figures.
