The Jazz Meister himself!
By OtaconTheOtaku on August 13, 2017
Received my MakeToys Downbeat AKA Jazz in mint condition, all i can says is WOW. MakeToys did an excellent job at capturing the G1 aesthetic of Jazz in both vehicle and especially in Bot mode. Solid and construction of figure, transformation is a little finicky around the legs but he holds together perfectly. Definitely a must buy for you Jazz lovers. Downbeat looks and scales Amazingly next to my other MP figures, get this figure you wont be dissapointed.
Almost....
By kai zhen on June 13, 2017
Maketoys almost nailed it. The G1 aesthetic is spot on and this is probably the best effort for an MP Jazz so far.
What was a turn off (for me), was the lack of paint...like on my MP Prowl. The shiny molded white plastic wreaked of cheapness and the swirly grey plastic on the shin and foot was befitting of a legends class figure.
Alas, he'll stay on my shelf until Takara decides to get off their behind until give us a proper MP Jazz...
Great figure!
By WreckNRule on May 09, 2017
I was torn between getting this guy and pre-ordering Coolsville. In the end I decided on this one, and so far no regret at all! This guy is sturdy, incredibly poseable, and just fun to mess around with. He fits right in with my Masterpiece figures and is a welcomed addition to the collection!

As for quality, I only had one small issue with a leg panel not properly pegging in, but it sits so close to where it should be I don't even notice it and it doesn't affect posing him at all. Giving it a five because the rest of the quality is superb and still light years ahead of some of official MPs.
yes, more of this, Maketoys
By whataboutninjas on April 24, 2017
His design fits very well with the MP line aesthetics. If you're gonna capitalize off of a beloved 80s cartoon show and its characters, you should do so as accurately as possible. None of this stylized version like with Maketoys previous offerings. I hope they continue this way.
Gorgeous, but difficult
By AlexReynard on March 03, 2017
I love transforming MakeToys Despotron, complex as he is, because almost all his tolerances are spot-on. Downbeat, on the other hand... This is not an easy transformation. But it could be much more enjoyable if nearly all the tabs weren't loose and nearly all the hinges weren't SUPER TIGHT. Like with Masterpiece Tracks, I get the feeling of, 'This plastic is too thin for me to be comfortable putting this much pressure on it.' In particular, rotating the back wheel sections is nerve-wracking. (Though the bit where the legs elongate via swivel is pure joy.) Thankfully overall, there are enough amazing mass-shifting tricks here that my awe outweighs frustration. I think MakeToys is employing wizards.

All that said, Downbeat is seriously pretty in both modes. The Porsche is lusciously curvy, spoiled only by a few bits of kibble that are necessary to avoid gappy legs. The robot was prioritized here, and I can't imagine him looking any better. (People seem to dislike the swirly grey feet, but I get the feeling it might've been the only plastic sturdy enough.) I love that you can display him with doors up or down. I love the gleam of his visor. I love the blinding pureness of the white plastic. I love the PROPORTIONS! My only complaint about the looks would be that he's a bit stark. As if MakeToys knew ToyHax would finish off his details with stickers.

This is not a figure you can breezily transform back and forth for fun. It's a careful challenge. But if all you want is to have your favorite cat-eared coolster posing on your shelf, Downbeat is very much worth that initial 'Holy jeez I hope I don't break this thing!' you'll have to go through to get him in robot mode.
Best Jazz so far
By Gunsmoke04 on March 03, 2017
The best looking Jazz, in robot and vehicle mode to me. Very accurate to the cartoon and fits in with, and surpasses most of the small car MP figures. His feet can be tough, mine especially the joints were very very tight. But I wouldn't knock it for that, if you're patient and work them a bit they loosen up.
Great Not Jazz with a couple little quirks
By Half Pants on February 18, 2017
Great figure. Looks amazing and is pretty poseable. However the leg transformation is straight up finicky. The biggest problem, to me, is the shoulders. When you full rotate them up, they pop the chest section out. Also a couple metal pins fell out of the legs of mine. Still giving it 4/5 though. Again it's a great figure, I just didn't see any of the issues addressed in other reviews. Headsculpt is my jam.
JAZZ!!!!
By Jeff's Toy Reviews on February 15, 2017
Although from a third party, this guy is a masterpiece. I absolutely love this fig. Great transformation, and solid fig to boot. I say grab it while you can!
A great Transformer! And I'm not Jazzing you!
By Skeletors_Hood on February 03, 2017
Several Jazz figures are hitting the market, and I feel like this one hits the mark better than others. Can be displayed as both cartoon or G1 toy accurate, which was a clever and needed step, as Jazz had two distinct looks. Transformation is easy for the most part, his legs are a bit weird at first, but once you do it once or twice, it's pretty straight forward. Highly recommended!
