in Autobot, Generation One, Mighty Muggs, News

Autobot Jazz is not one to simply charge onto the battlefield and take on the enemy without some sense of style!

When challenged with overwhelming odds, Springer is more likely to make a sarcastic quip and go on the offensive than he is to retreat. This daring Autobot has been responsible for many victories as part of the Wreckers thanks in part to his ability to change into three forms! Check out my review of Generations Springer!
