Series: Transformers; Robot Heroes
Release Date: 2006
Comments: I can’t believe that HASBRO knew that their younger skewing Star Wars line, Galactic Heroes, would ultimately result in similar lines across most of their headlining properties. These smaller, stylized incarnations of characters have moved from Star Wars into Transformers, G. I. Joe and the MARVEL universe.
While this thumbs-up giving, smirking Jazz may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I find it to be a refreshing take on a classic G1 character. It might not Transform, it might not be super articulated, but there’s no question in who it is. He’s a fun little toy, and that’s what we’re here for.
