    My favorite toy. I've been touching this thing up for the past year ever so slowly as I never want to mess it up.

    I'll be posting a big photo shoot on my blog tomorrow. And no, he's not for sale. This is my baby.

    I love this figure and how it looks, but one thing about it that really annoys me is how the chest doesn't lock into place. Have you found a way to fix that???

    Yeah, buy the United version. All the joints are tight.
    Also the very first versions that came out. They had the painted arms and the long bolts instead of screws through the torso. The chest was fine but the arms were floppy. Later releases were of the floppy chest, tight arms variety.

    The United version is friggin' perfect though. I think the Botcon versions of this mold use the United tooling as they are tight as well.

    You did a really great job on this, and your affinity of this figure really shows. It's a favorite mold of mine as well :)

    Is there a way to correct the floppy chest on the figure? I got mine right out of Target first time I saw one there. I want my Jazz's chest to not fold back up every time I move the arms.. is there any hope man?

    Sorry. If I were to lose every toy I have and could only keep one this would be it.

    Fantastic. I really wish somebody would release a Gears of War set that includes a chrome gun and a missile launcher for Jazz.
