1. Not every universe's new version of a character needs to stick to the GEEWUN color scheme. Get over it.
2. Jetfire has a Valkyrie-esque head.
3. Wing Saber sharing colors with G1 Jetfire is more of a coincidence; his color scheme is based on Sonic Bomber from Zone (he's even called Sonic Bomber in Galaxy Force)
4. That's just green, not camo.
5. Jetfire lives up to the role of "Autobot aerial powerhouse and taxi" :P

ROTF Jetfire is as much Jetfire as ROTF Optimus Prime is Optimus Prime. It's just an interpretation of the character
. They even kept the idea that he wasn't originally an autobot. That's more G1 homage than anyone else got in the movies.
This is why I was going "Wat." at Kanrabat, the arbitrarily declaring those incarnations J.I.N.O.

Also, Ironhide got G1 homage too :P He's always itching to go kick some aft, he's one of the Autobots' heavy gunners, and he dies in a way meant to sucker-punch the audience.

He wasn't.
But hey, new universes' unique versions of characters should have their own characterization traits (be they major or minor) to help make them stand out. And in ROTF Jetfire's case his crotchety old man personality made me very fond of him.

Speaking of own universe and characterisation, I love the fact that in Animated, Optimus Prime was basically ORION PAX. He kept the name Optimus for obvious marketing purpose, obviously. But unlike G1, instead of "Pokemon evolving" from Orion Pax to Optimus Prime, "Orion Pax" gradually grew and matured into Optimus Prime.

I miss Animated...
