The listing has since been removed, but earlier this evening, we got a little sneak peek at the 30th Anniversary Jetfire figure via an eBay auction. Interestingly, the auction stated that the item was not for sale, but listed a price of $5,000.00. See pictures below, and click on over to Energon Pub to tell us what you think.

Oh I can just tell that's going to be one of those "don't bother integrating the robot mode, just stash it under the jet" figures.

The listing said it was not for sale, only for show, which is probably why the price was high.

Jetfire's jet mode, Skyfire's bot mode. Talk about identity issues. Not sure I like this, if I'm going to get a Skyfire figure I really want the jet mode to be right as well.

OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS, HOLY COW, SAKES ALIVE!

I recently shelled 70-some bucks on Classics Jetfire. A cool enough display, but lacking pose/playability. Iwas hoping the listing for a leader class jetfire would be lame, so I wouldn't feel bad about getting the character again.

But, he's so cool looking that, if this is indeed the one we'll be seeing, I won't feel bad at all. :D

I'll second this. Classics Jetfire was a similar compromise, and he was so damn good that no further stab in that direction can be significantly better. If you want to give us a better likeness, pick a design and stick to it in both modes. Making it look enough like a Valk only in jet mode is a fun way to piss off Harmony Gold, but not nearly as fun as a large, official toy that actually pulls off the Skyfire design's jet mode would be.

Is it wrong that I'm kinda tired of G1 Jetfire toys that are balanced half-show/half-toy in the accuracy department and just want a full-blown show-accurate G1 Jetfire toy (that isn't 3rd party-made)?

I mean, if real, this is the closest we've ever gotten to an official show-accurate G1 Jetfire toy, but the show-accuracy of the robot mode is restricted by toy-accurate aspects of the highly toy-accurate jet mode creeping into the robot mode and conflicting with its show-accurate aspects.

I'm sorry if I sound picky, but all I've ever wanted of this character was a toy of the Floro Dery Skyfire deisgn, not another Skyfire/Valkyrie hybrid.

It does look nice, though.

i dont know about this i like the bot mode and i like the jet mode but i have a hard time trying
to see how they are the same because they look like two different toys
besides we already have a decent looking skyfire/jetfire that was released on the classics line
in a way it looks like a heavy remold of that same one

I hated Jetfire's comic-book/cartoon alternate mode, I always thought it looked like garbage, but did like his robot mode, so this would make me very happy... I was also very fond of the Dreamwave design, where it looked like Jetfire was wearing extra, custom hazardous environment armor, and this sort of reflects that.

I never really liked Classics Jetfire, but that looks awesome.

I did a little photoshop work on the jet mode image to "fix" the wing.

This is fantastic. 2 years late for Macross' 30th anniversary but still. This is a real classics look.

Agreed!

I don't care if this is a supposed compromise - as far as Generations goes, this is the Jetfire!

This image does not seem real. Looks more like a CG rendering. :(
