So about five more quid than the usual rate. Doesn't hurt my feelings.

I don't have a problem with this. I actually think it's very reasonable :APPLAUSE: . Especially seeing as the only other Jetfire coming out is third party and costs 160$.

So basically, the same Leader class price we've had since ROTF.

I love it and I want it, but I already have a perfectly serviceable Jetfire in the Classics Voyager and I can't see myself spending that kind of money for a character I already have, even if it's one of my favorites. If I ever find it on sale or clearance, though, oho...!

People gonna be dissapointed with mold. Believe me.

Go through it, it's a actually like 2 toys in one.

You can take out the jet pieces, and still maintain the robot form.

Like Beast Wars mammoth Optimus Prime.

Jetfire's jet mode looks like it basically robot mode lying down.

I don't think so. If it was that bad, the robot mode would look like Classics Silverbolt, and it doesn't. It might not be as slender as MP Starscream, but I'm sure it won't be terrible. And given Voyager Jetfire going for insane amounts of money, this is an awesome deal. So glad I can finally own a jetfire that doesn't comprimise on the poseability (knees). Couldn't be more bought at that price.

I don't think I've bought a leader figure since Cybertron so it'll be interesting to have a figure that size again. I might hold off on getting it until I hear about how it feels, solid plastic etc.

Sounds about right. And that's MSRP, so it might be like $39.99 at Target or Walmart, right?

Aww man, we have to wait until the Fall for this bad boy!!!!!!! :(

I can't see how I will be disapointed at all. G1 Vehicle mode and G1 Cartoon robot mode. Best of both worlds!

Only nitpick of mine is I wish his boosters were beefier or maybe had option to slide together to look like G1 toon.
