Transformers Update: The JAZZman

Presenting JAZZ - Here are early designs of Jazz from the Transformers Movie along with his actual car form - a Pontiac Solstice.






---------

The names of the Autobots and Decepticons appearing in next summer's Transformers movie were released along with a bit of commentary. I thought that would throw in a few pictures of the robots as an added bonus. Click for bigger version. Sadly there is no ghetto-blaster (or iPod) Soundwave, but I admit the "flame" look on Prime looks A-Ok. Enjoy.

Autobots

Optimus Prime - "The king!"












Bumblebee - "He's the same underdog character we always knew and loved." [Note: Except he's a Camaro in the new movie.]





Jazz - "He's eager to take on the Decepticons."



Ratchet - "Ratchet, who was an ambulance in the cartoon, will appear in a new form."



Ironhide - "The muscle. A tough soldier who can make any Transformer bust an o-ring just with his stare!"


Decepticons

Megatron - "He's been portrayed as pure evil but we're trying to get a little bit behind the evil in this movie. ... He has a slightly less idealistic version of what he thinks humanity is worth."





Starscream - "Always secretly plotting to dethrone Megatron..."



Brawl
- "An extremely pissed off Decepticon."

Bonecrusher - "The closest thing to a Constructicon in the film."

Barricade - "The hunter of the group -- a cop car."

Scorpinok - "Closest thing to Beast Wars or Dinobot in the film."



Frenzy - "A smaller form able to infiltrate spaces -- a stealth spy."

Blackout - "The guy who takes out our ability to fight back."

Now that's better! Jazz actually looks like a Transformer! I hope they stay close to this design.

I agree. This design is much more simple and just reads better. They should give Optimus and Megatron this overhaul.

Some voices are cast! Have you heard about this?
