    Main issue with my Jazz is that I can't get him to transform correctly. Apparently the legit version is easier.

    What part did you have trouble with? I had trouble with his legs/tail end clipping together

    im still waiting on my 3 mechanical team...shipping woes. but all the reviews i have heard are positive as far as quality. my only concern for mt devi is combined mode.
    same on mine. i took a small file to the tabs in that area and the sprue marks and it goes together way easier now. maybe try that?

    Can you show us a pic? I broke one of my pegs near the tail light because of the tightness.

    PicsArt_10-25-06.16.05.jpg little off the clear red panel of the tail light on each side
    PicsArt_10-25-06.11.13.jpg shave a little off of the highlighted panel that corresponds to the panel you shaved on each tail light
    PicsArt_10-25-06.09.58.jpg shave a little off of the highlighted panel that corresponds to the panel you shaved on each tail light
    PicsArt_10-25-06.08.39.jpg shave a little off the front of both tabs on the inside of the trunk that pegs in below the spoiler andyou should be good to go although it might take a little back and forward for a proper fit . Hope it helps

    Price up on ShowZ, $62.

    The original cost me 59.99 from A3U. There's no way the *slight* OS straight KO with no mods should cost more than the original from only 3 years ago.

    I'm struggling to see any justification for this other than scarcity of the original.

    I agree, if you have the original then you wouldn't really need this. I skipped on the original and am looking forward to this guy.

    Unfortunately, the adage “bigger and better” doesn’t always apply to pricing.

    Honestly, it is a bigger figure. But I see your point. I skipped on the original because it didn’t scale well with my other MPM movie stuff. Seems like this is worth a few bucks more.

    I have the original. If the QA is good, I'll get this one too.

    Same. I've heard plenty of horror stories about issues with the original, but I havne't had any QT or durability issues with mine at all. He is definitely finicky, but as long as you take your time, you shouldn't have any issues. Looking forward to getting a larger version of him though :)

    On of my hip panels broke, but Show Z replaced it no problem. He's a good figure that could benefit from being larger, so this works for me.

    Yep, that’s black mamba alright. Pricing it higher because they this their top of the world. No way Am I paying more for a KO than the original when it’s literally the same figure just slightly bigger.

    It's funny though because there are some who would kill to have this sort of thing done to more figures if for nothing else but scaling purposes.

    I think the original Firage might be good enough. He's only ¼ inch too short. I hope that the 7.5 inch measurement given for the OS includes his wings.

    I mean, at least they made it a 3 foot figure. Rather than making it an inch or two higher and the same price as the original. Can see Lewin actually cared.

    Well... no. But I did take some pictures of the original next to some others that might help. Dino should be as tall as Jazz who is 6 inches tall.
