Noteworthy features

  • AMP suit which raises and lowers.
  • Jake's coffin.


  • PRODUCTION MISTAKE: There is a gap or hole in the clear plastic guard for the left base of the AMP Suit, just to the right of pop bumper #2. Against a lot of odds a'wild ball' CAN rarely fly up and drop in this hole. The hole is just slightly bigger than a ball. When this happens the ball lodges behind the AMP Suit leg INSIDE the base. The only way out is through the same hole and it is impossible to grasp it or lift it out of there. WARNING! If the AMP Suit bends forward, the ball gets firmly lodged under its leg and can possibly damage the mechanism that operates the suit. The only way to retrieve the ball is to push it uphill toward the hole with a pencil, and another person take a piece of duct tape and press it down on the ball and lift it out of the hole. Stern is in the process of making a 'fix' for this to cover the hole. It should be available sometime soon. (Posted November 27, 2010)
