    folkArt acrylic paints:
    metallic silver
    metallic sequent black
    metallic bright red
    cobalt blue

    it's the cheaper alternative when you're on a budget.

    plus I bought some Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer but I haven't used it yet on any of my figures. so I don't know about the results yet.

    Anyone else have ground clearance issues with this guy in alt mode?

    On mine, the head is scraping the ground. I don't remember it ever doing that before, so I'm wondering if maybe the gears got misaligned or something.

    Does anyone else have that issue? Or can you confirm that your head doesn't scrape the ground at all?

    Mine is close, but does not touch the ground. Same on the United one.

    It's been a while since I've had him out of the bin, but I feel like I had that same issue, too. I wasn't sure if it was something I did wrong or what the case was.

    Just got RTS Jazz today. Holy crap. Why did I ever pass up on this guy?? He looks outstanding! And the super glue trick made him solid as hell! I can pick him up my the chest and it doesn't move unless I make it move!

    Nope. I've had this guy (great update to my favorite G1 Autobot character!!! Love him!!!) since his initial release (2009, 2010?) and he still has no clearance issues to this day. Recently got the G2 repaint (this summer) and no issues there either!

    WOW. Just that simple headswap makes the POTP toy so much more dynamic. Thanks for posting!

    Necro thread here!

    Did anybody ever create a sheet of water slide decals for this guy? I have the Reprolabels, but they're curling & peeling, as stickers tend to do after a while.

    I'd love to make this guy look good permanently! Let me know if anyone ever did that.

    with the new one coming out, maybe the price on the United version comes down? the paint on that guy is pretty fantastic.

    Doubtful, it’s a great toy with an excellent deco 10 years on. I don’t know about RTS, but I doubt the prices on United Jazz are gonna fall.

    Anyone have a problem with the gears of their RTS/United's automorph? I feel like mine's misaligned so it ends up more angled than it should.
    Also, if I'm having trouble pulling the legs from the clear canopy tabs to the point I need a lot of force, do you recommend trimming the tabs? Does anyone else have that problem

    First pic is the canopy as is.
    Second is me pushing it down to try to get it to the angle I see most RTS/United Jazz figures
    Otherwise, I don't regret getting this guy one bit. THIS is the CHUG Jazz I wanted!
