Third party group Fans Want it have been quiet since their release of FWI-02, a weapons upgrade for Transformers: DOTM Leader Class Ironhide, but they recently released a teaser image for their next project FWI-03. This set appears to be a Jetfire parts upgrade for Transformers: ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime. Might be a nice alternative to actually combining him with Leader Class Jetfire. Check out the teaser below.
