It started as anticipation when we saw that the two pack was posted for pre-order on BBTS.
Then, for many, it turned to a bit of disgust on the part of many posters when pictures of the box set were added.
Now designer Derrick J. Wyatt, comments on the duo on his blog, 'A Delightful Tedium'.
I wouldn't rush to judgment on the Jetfire and Jetstorm figures yet. Those are some pretty terrible pictures that are out there right now. The pictures I saw way back of the grey prototypes looked really good. And yes, of course they have hands! In both robot modes! The promo pics are just mistransformed. Once they are properly transformed and posed out, they should look pretty cool.
Does this news make you feel a bit more encouraged, or do you think Mr. Wyatt is saying this to support his current paycheck producers. Let us know below!

But there's no way those leg/arms are going to improve just by having a fist or fingers pop out at the ankle. They'll still look over-sized, and I can't really see anything there that would fold up back or out of the way to make them look less like legs.
Not to mention the other defects they have, that won;t actually be removed by correctly transforming them. *cough*-combined jet mode-*cough*

If they guy did design them, and he's trying to save his job by saying "hey they're mistransformed, please buy them"
I should remind everyone about the creator of the Virtual Boy Gunpei Yoko
If it's someones job to design something that is pleasing to the eye, something that people will buy. And we get something the exact opposite, should we still buy it just because someone said "oh, it may look like crap there, but if you do this this and this to it, it looks good?"
Or should we not buy it and just demand better designs and product from the people we give our money to as consumers?
