We have a pair of news for you tonight regarding the upcoming and fairly highly anticipated figure from the Studio Series Line: Jazz!

The first news we have for you is yet another video review from PrimeVsPrime, who has already done reviews for us of voyagers Brawl and Megatron. Here PrimeVsPrime gives us a great look at Jazz, who is a very small deluxe with some great talking points, such as the high amount of silver paint and the fairly awesome posability. You can check out his review below.

The second bit of news comes from the Transformers Facebook and Instagram accounts, which give us yet another look at Jazz, this time from one of the designers of the figure. The video goes briefly into the design process for Jazz, explaining how he is one of the favorites of this particular design engineer and how he came to be. You can check it out below the review.

Let us know what you think of this new deluxe Jazz below!

Jazz, half the size for twice the price. I'm glad I have no interest in this rip-off figure.

Jazz was the smallest Autobot in the first movie. Smaller than Bumblebee, even. He's supposed to be little.

I mostly just wish if he was going to be *that* small.... then they'd put some extra money in his paint... those thighs look so... bland. I'm on the fence with getting him (will probably cave if I see him in person). I loved the original deluxe design (and it's G1 repaint), but nothing can beat the Human Alliance version. I'm surprised that never got a "masterpiece" paint job.

I actually paid £7 more than his RRP and I feel no regrets (unlike with Grimlock). He's such a fun cool lil dude I've been playing with here on my desk a lot in the past couple days. He may be small but he feels solid and with that nice silver paint he feels premium (remember the premium version of 2007 Jazz that had silver paint instead of just being the bare dull cheap looking grey plastic?). He still feels a bit more complex in transformation than many larger deluxes in all recent TF lines too particularly in the torso area.

Bonus deal! We're getting half the deal for twice the price!

He is, indeed, an extremely small Deluxe. I don't know for sure if I'll pick him up if/when I see him - I'm starting to feel intrigued since everyone who has the toy seems to love it now - but at the same time, I also passed on Bee the one time I saw him because I felt like he was too small for the price, so... who knows. He'll be an impulse purchase if anything for me, but I'm glad those who have him thought he was worth it! :D

Remember... it's not the size of your transformer, it's how you play with it ;)

With that level of detailing and engineering AND paint, the size is pretty much irrelevant. Plus, it's IN SCALE. That may be the only SS deluxe I'll ever get. Even full price. ;)^

Now, only a MPM version is needed to beat the HA version.

I actually consider the SS figure superior to the HA. There's aspects of the HA version I never liked.. the awful legs for one thing. My only complaint with the SS is that backpack area, not so much the size of it but I wish the spoiler could have ended up behind his head like on the previous figures. I just really liked that look and can't figure out a way to mimic it on the SS.

Anyways onto his wave mate Lockdown (whom I also have) who now has a review from PrimeVsPrime



Easy to see the new Lockdown looks far superior in every way to the AoE figure. :)

Wow, Lockdown looks nice. I'm not sure if I want that or the ROTF figure now.

Another one of these damn videos. I dont want to see already released figures leaked from Cybertron. I want to see 2019 WFC trilogy figures leaked from China.

You won't be seeing that in this thread. ;)

Is there anyone collecting Studio figures who don't want the backdrops or are throwing them away? Just asking cos I'd quite like spare ones to display some non-Studio TF movie figures such as a voyager sized one for RotF Bludgeon. Just a wondering. :)

I have the ones for Ratchet and Bumblebee if you want those. Send me a PM if you're interested.

I'm kinda bummed that they're already reusing the background imagines for the dioramas. I figured each figure would come with a wholly unique background. That's one of the big reasons I bought Studio Series Optimus Prime. I wanted to make sure I got to collect ALL of the different backdrops. I could have just waited to buy Studio Series Megatron instead. Oh well.

Personally I have not problem with how small he is. I feel the thing with his size is similar to what hasbro does with marvel legends. In a single wave of marvel legends you might get a smaller figure with fewer accessories but you also get a giant baf and maybe a larger normal release as well. Studio series may not have the baf but it does have some much larger figures for their size class, such as Leader Grimlock, voyager Starscrean, or Deluxe Ratchet.

Fellow Seibertronian PrimeVsPrime has once again reached out to us, and graced us with another video review for the Deluxe-class Lockdown from the second wave of Studio Series figures. Alongside posing and transformation, we get a great look at the extensive detail adorning his robot and vehicle modes, as well as comparisons to the previous Age of Extinction Deluxe Lockdown and the other Studio Series figures released so far.

Of course, we want to hear your opinions too! Do you have Lockdown yet too? If you do, let us know what you think of this toy by posting in the Energon Pub Forums - or if you've only seen the review, tell us what you're most anticipating about it!

In this review, I take yet another look at the latest entry into the Studio Series line, that being the Studio Series Lockdown! I showcase the figure in both his robot-mode as well as his vehicle-mode. I also show a step-by-step guide of how to transform him from his robot-bounty hunter mode to his Lamborghini Aventador alt-mode. This is the final figure that I shall be taking a look at this week as I have reviewed and collected all the Studio Series figures released thus far!

Man, that Lockdown is like night and day compared to the original. I was going to skip it, but after seeing those comparisons it's a HUGE improvement. May just pick it up.

The Brawl and Jazz videos, on the other hand, have enforced my decision to skip them. Both are just too tiny for their price point. Brawl doesn't look much bigger than the deluxe version from the first movie, and I think the first movie leader figure just suits him better. And Jazz is almost a scout class he's so small. No way I'm spending $20 on him when I already have the original deluxe and the HA versions.

Looks like a sizable improvement on the old Lockdown figure. The sculpting on him is top notch, but I’m still not sure if I’ll get him. At least not right away. Odds are I’ll just wait until HTS runs a good discount on figures to pick him and Jazz up. It’s nice that he has more articulation than I previously thought (had no idea he’d have an arm swivel and ankle joints), but no wrist and especially not waist articulation is a huge bummer. Not going to get any real dynamic poses out of him. On a personal level I think I would have preferred it if he had been a smallish voyager, similar to Prime.

Brawl and Megatron are immediate buys though. I had some reservations about Brawl when we got our first look at him, but he’s really grown on me. I get an almost Generations Darkmount/Straxus vibe off of him.

So far I think this line has been great. A couple minor misses, but mostly some fantastic hits. I’m just hoping that this line doesn’t end any time soon, because of the Movie universe getting a reboot after ‘Bee. I want more. It would be fantastic to see an updated voyager Shockwave, a redeco of Blackout as Grindor, the Constructicons, and definitely more dreadbot/vehicons. I want to build an army of uglies.

Basically I want many more Decepticons. :CON: .
