I didn't like the images of Jetfire that were around. I didn't like the way he looked in the box either. Outside the box...

Unbelieveable.

I was/am a little dispointed with Jetfire. I think the main problem with him is that his alt mode is still too much like a Macross mech. I would rather they have done an actual re-imagining of him as opposed to the slightly different version we now have. The robot mode is alright, fairly detailed. I dont like the helmet though. Also I dont like the fact that while in jet mode his arms just basically hang off the side.

Ramjet is a good figure, although I wish they would have done something to cover up his go-bot like face in jet mode.

Cliff jumper is good. Only problem I have is that the front headlights should have been clear plastic like bumblebee instead of painted.

Jetfire is at the tops of the classics and I really like the "Skyfire" bot head. He looks close enough to the original cartoon version to me, and that's a good thing. I always wanted Skyfire.

I'm reallllly feeling left out. I might very well be the only normal poster on here who doesn't have a Jetfire.

Jetfire is top 3 in the classics line. In my opinion his is number 1 of the 3 the other 2 being Skywarp and Ramjet. Jetfire is awesome I like him without the helmet on in deluxe robot mode. my only 10 outta 10 in the classics line.

i love my jetfire. to me hes a perfect homage. hes got a lot of detailes from the macross jet, as well as some toon homages, mostly in the face, and then comic detailing.

as for the arms hanging off the side, when you have all his weapons on him, theyre a lot less noticable.

i would call this a true new classic.
