Actually, a few of us were there until after 8 p.m. And then I still had to come back the next day, find a corner out of the way, and finish the toy. Altogether, I'd say I spent 13 hours on the toy.
I don't know what it was about the Jazz mold, but this sucker was a pain to put together. One major issue was they sent pins instead of screws for the shoulders. One of the people helping in the class had to take a power drill to each person's figure to get the pins to go in. Unfortunately, the pins were then too loose on mine to stay in.
For those saying it isn't really a customization, that may be true. The idea of the class is to let the person get a little bit of experience with fitting parts together, learning what goes where, and how to paint the toys. In that sense, it's mainly for beginners to learn about what it takes to customize a toy.
The problem is that this figure has now become a super-exclusive. So about 90% of the first day's class were repeat enrollees. How many were there for the class, and how many were there for the figure? FunPub really needs to figure out a way to make this figure available to everybody, so that seats in the class open up to those who have never been in it before.
