    The rear and then the part that is worst for me is the fake wheel well piece that hangs down in alt mode. Other than that it is fantastic. I preordered right away and am excited for this one. :) 

    Robot mode is especially nice.

    Thanks for replying. I'm so glad of all possible manufacturers Maketoys tackled him, he's fitting Artfire perfectly.

    Agreed with this.

    That's all from alt mode though. Bot mode he's awesome.

    LOL cynical much? :D  I don't recall them ever saying any such thing about Downbeat but I can't swear to that. I suppose they could go back on it or fail to follow through. Sounds expensive. Not sure it's a good idea anyway, sounds like the kind of paint that's likely to chip or flake. But it's what people want, and they said they'd do it, so I'll believe them until they don't. Supposedly it's a small release so maybe they can splurge on it, and since Richochet wasn't in the toon they have more leeway than with Downbeat.

    I haven't had any issues with mine. I think it's one of the better carbots bar none. I've heard a few QC issues here and there but can't recall anything that seemed systemic.

    This MT Jazz is a true masterpiece. I was sceptical from some reviews and experiences from others, but glad I bought it.

    How were you able to use the chrome pen tip to fit in for the crevices of the gun muzzle and other areas? Do you have to remove pins and do some disassembling to fully access all areas of the shin?

    I need to get a fine point one to do at the top of the shins but for the gun, it is liquid so a couple of passes and it reaches in easily. Honestly, up close it's obviously not a pro job but it looks good enough for me :) 

    I'll be giving a better detailing when I get my fine point pen in.

    Is that something that you could get at an art store? Could you give a brand name or other descriptor for a good chrome pen?
