edit: oh, wait, that was Slicer.. I can’t remember.
The split head looks pretty bad, that sucks. I'll still get him to have a regular toy of Jackpot that transforms though.
I hate having leftover accessories in one mode. Is it possible to store both Sights and the gun on Jackpot's alt mode?
If you pull his feet on the back of the car down slightly then you could plug the gun there.
I can't really tell which side of the head is "wrong", honestly both sides seem a bit wonky and warped in addition to the whole mis-matching thing. It just feels like the whole thing bot messed up on a fundamental level, not just a simple single point of failure in the design.
I wonder if they are ALL messed up (which would seem likely) if they'd consider issuing a replacement. I know Power Rangers isn't TF, but when they released the Dino Thunder White Ranger wthout the black paint trim they actually eventually offered people free replacements. Now, to be fair, painting a head is easier than making a new-mold head, but still...
Almost wished they gave an excuse in the info blurb like "but the downside of going through the Golden Disk portal misaligned his helmet, leaving combat even more to luck due to constantly shifting his head around to aim properly"
The release date for Jackpot and Puffer/Road Ranger has changed from March 1st to December 1st. I had to frantically cancel my orders, since I needed to change the payment method.
It looks like the March release date is still there for Tigatron and Terrorsaur.
Just got shipping notification on both sets, due to arrive on Friday.
if i had to guess, id say the head issue this guy has is due to the placement of the right head half on the mould/gate, looks like it has an issue thats making it contract too much when cooling. ironic that the lucky character is unlucky in figure form
Got charged for my Jackpot, but no shipping notice yet. Hopefully I'll be seeing him soon; I'm eager to get my hands on him and get a closer look at whatever the hell is going on with the head issue.
So have any of those early release Jackpots had any breakages yet?
My Jackpot got shipped this morning, which frankly I'm thrilled for because I've been waiting for a real Classics-styled Jackpot figure for forever...although I have to say I wasn't planning on spending this much on preorders this week
I'm in the US and I got mine from Amazon already.
Oh, nice! Gives me hope I might get a shipping notice in the next day or two. How does his head look? I've seen varying degrees of wonkiness on these guys, including a couple that were almost normal.
Ed: Just got my shipping notice! Amazon says he'll be here on Saturday, so others might want to check as well.
My Jackpot set shipped today. Damnit this always happened, I just picked up Galvatron the other day and now a preorder ships way early. My partner is going to kill me.
Amazon cancelled my order of Jackpot, so I had to reorder him.
He will arrive between Dec. 18th and Jan. 3rd, but I hope and pray that it will arrive before Christmas.
Jackpot and Puffer showed up YESTERDAY, after being scheduled for Friday. It's been a real weird week for me, mail-wise!
And now MOD Zartan is shipping several months early.
This month is KILLING me on early-arrival pre-orders. I'm now 100% certain retailers purposely inflated release dates to account for shipping delays.
-SS (Better safe than sorry, I guess)
The head mismatch isn’t so bad on mine, and the painted yellow vs plastic yellow isn’t glaring either. The silver bumper is really sharp, and the indigo of the weapons is a real nice contrast
