    Find Jazz at Target earlier tonight. I didn't have any trouble tabbing in his side panels for vehicle mode.

    Got around to opening this guy today.

    He's a very good figure- has a chance at deluxe of the year I reckon.

    It would be a whole lot easier to store the gun on the undercarriage if it weren't for that huge peg on the left side of the gun. REally don't like how we have to flex that transparent plastic a little bit to get it over the hood for transformation.

    What bases are those? Are they custom-cut perspex, or something commercial?

    I just made sure the legs were fully collapsed and angled properly. I didn't really do anything special.

    Let me know which ones you end up using, I was googling kits on aliexpress and I’m not THAT good with soldering kits….Couldn’t really find one ready to go kit either!

    So messed up that the target app says my pre-order still has no release date.

    Hope they don’t cancel it cause they sold them off in the stores. lol

    Still waiting on my Jazz but I tried it out on bumblebee.

    I ended up just using some from my hobby shop from the gundam section. They weren’t the same or as low as yours.

    Bandai Action base clear. You self assemble and they come with some smaller arms/stands for the weapons.

    They pegged right in to the smaller hole in the bottom.

    aaah, I'm sorry. I misunderstood. I thought you were having it levitate using a maglev setup. I think a Gundam actionbase is too big for this though. Tamashii nations Act. figure riser would be more suitable.

    Yes, I did see the maglev post. I ordered a kit from aliexpress. Just waiting on that too.

    For now, I actually used the extra weapons base.

    I figure, by the time I get my Jazz pre-order in, the maglev base will be here too.

    So anyone feel that this Jazz is better than Studio 86 Jazz? Is it solid in general? I’m happy with SS86 but I’ve made my preorder for this one
