glad the backpack guns come off... but I'd like to know if the other guns do too, because I really don't want guns on my figure's legs.

THIS IS AMAZING!!!!

poor hasbro, if only they knew that 90% of people buying this toy are over 18 years of age.

can't wait to pick this up.

Few gripes from pictures, his paint scheme is bland, could use more shading and details on the white. I understand they're trying to go g1 accurate, but his colors don't really work the best for a toy.

They are WELL aware of this. The Generations line seems like it's targeted at collectors more than kids, but if they were to market it that way then it would really only be collectors stores that would stock them rather than general retail stores.

the more i see of this figure, the less i like it.

i mean.. we already got a jetfire toy update with the classics jetfire.. what i want is a figure of the cartoon version.

had they given us a more cartoon accurate alt mode.. there'd be no need for a fake chest and a giant fuselage hanging off his back. hell, i don't think jetfire/skyfire has ever gotten a toon accurate alt mode. it's a shame really.

plus, the stripped paint apps makes this figure look ridiculously cheap, and it's not like there were that many to begin with, so i'm not sure why they got rid of them.. plus, look at his hollow thighs.. seriously, hollow thighs on a leader class figure. looks like the cost cutting from the movie lines is clearly going to affect the proper generations figures which totally sucks.

this is just further degradation of the leader class. the leader class used to be the best.. movie 1 leader prime, while it had a lot of kibble was still rather good for its time.. leader class brawl too.. then rotf prime which is incredible, rotf leader jetfire was huge and nice looking. starscream was great. dotm leader class sentinel was awesome, same with leader class ironhide.. hell, people even enjoyed leader class bumblebee.. and now we get AOE prime and grimlock who are too small, lack the engineering of the previous figures, and both are SEVERELY lacking when it comes to comparative accuracy. it's just a shame that these measures have taken hold of the generations figures.

i wonder how the final leader megatron will look, i wonder if it too will lose some paint.

oh well. i can still hope takara gives us a proper jetfire/skyfire. kronos looks great, but i'm holding out in hope that takara gives us one.. i mean, it's not like they need a license, there doesn't appear to be any hoops that they'd need to jump through.. so, my fingers are crossed.

don't get me wrong though, this figure looks nice.. it just could be better. aside from remolding it into a proper toon jetfire, leaving the original paint scheme would've gone a long way.

Kibble. So. Much. Kibble.

In both modes. Very lazy design. The original toy Jetfire (Macross mold) was notable for how little kibble there was in either mode. This looks like the robot mode has an entire folded-up jet on its back and the alt mode looks like it has an entire robot hanging from the undercarriage.

Also don't like how the shade of red of the chromed-out weapons is too dissimilar from the red paint apps on the body. Looks like they took the weapons off some other toy and stuck them onto this one. If the shades matched then the chrome would really make the whole toy pop. As it is though, the dissimilarity is jarring.

I'm excited to get this guy. I like the Classic version but always thought it wasn't close enough to toon accurate. While the alt mode isn't toon accurate, it is awesome. The bot mode looks great. Can't wait to pick this up!

I really really want to like this guy and even found myself drooling over earlier picks, but the more I see it the less I like it as well.


Just damn lazy... (Is this a Kre-o figure or a fracking Leader class?)

1) Hollow thighs

2) Hollow mid arms

3) Molded crappy chrome guns on legs to blow off Jetfire's arms in battle

4) Excessive backpack

5) Ridiculous price point

6) Bland white color

7) Closed fists


Inferior to Classics Jetfire mold...wish they had just made that mold into leader class. I could go on but have made my point. Let the neverending comments about fanboys never being happy with anything commence. This figure is poorly executed from every angle. =;

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! You are making me worry too much even though this is 99% true! :shock: :shock:

Looks great to me, but I'll wait until I can get it for $39.99 or less.

The robot mode looks a bit beefcake for me, but still pretty nice. The helmet is a good idea, and the sculpting/tech detail looks top notch.

That jet mode though...exquisite is the only word for it. It's chunky and sleek at the same time, and it's just so pointy! I love everything about it- I like the Macross cues they took with it a lot, too.

Also, chrome. Red chrome. I think I'm in love.

I am guessing at Target and Wal Mart he will be around $40 or so, same as the other leader class figs.

Instead of that smug smile, I wish the kid was crying over how beautiful this figure is. :P

He seems extremely happy to be holding it.

nice to see some others wondering where the Emperor's clothes are. This isn't a terrible looking toy by any means, but it's not as nice as the Classics one, and the colours and design choices are just baffling to me. The only positive I can see vs the fairly easily available Classics Jetfire is that it's a tiny bit bigger.


Oh and the actual cockpit (as opposed to the fake cockpit) opens so you can put your little........................................ :-? stick men drawn on paper? :???: .......inside.
