    If you're talking about pegging the rooftop into the round port at the back of Jazz's hips, I already did that. I'm talking more about the panel lines all around the vehicle mode makes the vehicle mode looks kinda broken.

    Got him today. Is he super tiny? Yes and i love that about him. He was the smallest one in the movie. They gave us all the things we wanted and to scale. His transformation and general articulation is leaps and bounds above the 07 version(would hope so with so much time pasted) im very happy. Only change would be if he could have a more accurate back with the red lights at his shoulder blades. And what a great head sculpt!

    I finally got this guy and actually at retail. On top of that, there was a sale... that brought him down to his standard retail cost. But anyways, this may be the most detailed figure of this size by Hasbro released at retail. The articulation is great, as has been said, and while he's a lot smaller than Ratchet, he blows Ratchet away in the paint department. Anyways, nice figure overall. Wish he wasn't dead.

    I wish his torso and legs had silver paint to match his upper body.

    took his hood off so i could experiment with having the lights turn with the grill, but it seems to be the kind of customization that's out of my wheelhouse (ie any).

    i took his hood off so i could mess with the rotating mechanism for the center of his grill. the upside-down headlights on his chest bothered me so i was trying to see if it'd be easy to get them to rotate with the center piece, but it'd be kinda hard.

    Never thought about it. I didn't realize they were upside down. I do remember the HA version had both of those sections tilt up I guess to make the headlights appear right side up

    Are jazz and lockdown the same weight? They feel really close.

    Jazz comes up somewhere around the middle of Lockdown's chest, but weight wise I can find out tomorrow their exact weight.

    I initially read "height", not weight. Had to edit my response, lol.

    Interesting. Closer than they look given the height difference. Thanks!

    It's not that close. By those numbers, Jazz is only 75% of Lockdown's mass, which is quite significant.

    OK so I sometimes read threads backwards from the latest post going up. I was doing that here and so I first saw the quoted post above mine - all it said was "balanced" with the image URL. Scroll up a bit more and I see the Karate Kid picture:

    So then I was expecting to see something like this:
