    Has anyone successfully removed the doors without breaking it? I'm trying to disassemble him to paint.

    I like the entire studio series jazz package with the rather cool movie backdrop. I don't normally keep them as they just add up to clutter but I'll keep this one and scourges.

    The figure itself is a step up from the potp version and looks like he stepped out of the movie

    Same here. I have the same number.

    It's been some time now, how is everyone's Jazz figures holding up? My crack is spreading and in kind of worried.

    My crack is the same size. I found the issue. It's that the hood panel is pushing up against the windshield tab. I've been shaving down the windshield tab but it still hits against the hood. Will try to shave more. In the meantime, I ordered a replacement on sale. So I'll probably keep that one in robot mode and the cracked one in alt mode.

    LOL. So my replacement has a crack right before the windshield right out of the box. Before I even took it out of the box. It's cracked right in the white frame, right before the windshield. SMH FML SOB!

    Just got this figure in a few days ago and he is sooo cool, I transformed him and no crack so far but I've decided to just use RTS Jazz for vehicle mode just in case.

    I picked this guy up again after leaving him on display for a while. God, his thight joints are still as stiff as I remember.

    Has ANYONE ELSE encountered this problem? Or is mine just a one-off problem. I'm considering replacing him.

    My copy is fine, besides the cracked windshield. Transform him a few times.

    Hey so should I wait for this figure to get redecoed as stepper/ricochet, or should I just swing for the POTP version of that character. Part of the reason I ask is because my potp jazz broke along the hood of his car mode because it was made of clear plastic.

    I hope the reissue fixes the cracking windshield, changing the engineering or loosing the clear plastic.

    From the reviews I've seen, the Power Of The Primes Ricochet is really bad. Apparently it's either a case of severe mold degradation or really cheap plastic. You'd be better off getting the Ricochet based on the Reveal The Shield mold, if they don't do one for this mold. But I would be shocked if they didn't do one for this mold.
