    anyone else having a hard time getting the arms back out from under the car mode when transforming to bot? The only way I've found that sorta works was extending the arms while still under body then massaging it out.

    Like the look of this guy but the transform and fit couldn't use more work =-/

    I call Boloney on not painting the blue. I'd rather have it delayed and get the additional paint apps, it was probably because of costs.

    Agreed, it was mostly the colour upgrade that made me decide to buy.

    Yeah, I feel the same. Was really hoping we'd get gold instead of orange...but hopefully nothing a little paint can't fix.

    In your guys opinions...what's the best "chrome-y" gold paint available?

    I've used Rustoleum in the past for a cylon commander figure I was working on...with "ok" results...any other ideas?

    Yeah same for me, feel a lil bummed, but knowing I am getting a better price then the toyworld version makes it tolerable.
    I plan on painting the visor and the additional parts one day.

    I just received mine from Showzstore. Unfortunately they sent Ricochet instead of the Jazzy that I ordered. :/

    Just watched the video thanks, the poor fellow has the same troubles I've had so I know its not just me =-) I'm experimenting with stuff on it but it just needs a better q/c on parts fit. I think the front windscreen staying down after getting all the other bits aligned is my biggest nemesis ATM ! lol

    This is a definite must-have for any owner of this version of Jazz. At the price that Zeta Toys is offering, I might just go ahead and get it...and the decal sheet from Reprolabels. :D

    Ok...what the HELL am I doing wrong?! lol. Ive spent like six hours over two days trying to get this guy into car mode. Ive watched three videos on it. I have tried the waist flaps in a vertical position. But then the rear windows do not tab into the roof. Ive tried them horizontal. Then everything except the doors can tab in. Wtf?!

    It's snazzy. Love the gold and black colors and flame.

    This is wrong. Need to click in over the small tabs. You can see this in my video. In your car mode pic it is not all the way down.
    I will be making a tutorial video.
