Admittedly, I want this one. Pity they probably won't do a proper Generations Shockwave for a long time. They've had plenty of other shockwaves like Beast Hunter and WFC....

Agreed......I'd like to see what the price is aswell. Up here in Canadia it's probably 60 bucks.

Ryan's gallery, he takes great pictures of his collections (nope......no suck up). And Jetfire IS gorgeous. Not perfect Masterpiece class but gorgeous.

Wasn't too long ago that Generations Jetfire was found at retail in Canada. Now it seems we have a U.S. sighting as well. Brandan Smith posted an image on the Facebook group Cybertron Cafe: The Transformers Trading Group of a Jetfire he found at Kmart in Virginia. Time to activate those keen toy hunting skills.

Dude, I see where you are coming from, but a true high grade macross (what Jetfire was originally) is insanely high. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Acrcadia-Macross-Plus-Kanzen-Henkei-YF-19-With-Fast-Pack-1-60-Action-Figure-/200981863626?pt=UK_Collectables_AnimationCharacters_Anime_SM&hash=item2ecb73dcca&_uhb=1

So I am glad we have this as an alternative.

If you really want a good one, patience pays off- I've cobbled together several Matsushiro Jetfires for under $150 each. It can be done, and it's way more worth it than that red chromed hollow thing that isn't sure what it is. Also, Jetfire was a VF-1S, not a YF-19

Why are you comparing the Yf-19 to the current leader class Jetfire.
You can get a Macross Valkyrie for much cheaper.

every morning. lol.
seriously though, there are sooo few paint apps, the forearms, the thighs, and the biceps are all hollow, no ankle articulation, and a giant fuselage hanging off its back on a $45 leader class figure with no electronics.. i'm sorry, but that's insulting. they go from the DOTM leader class figures to this. it's just sad.

i guess i'm more annoyed that we've waited for these figures for a while, they treat them like this, and now we won't get another for a long time.

i guess i'll have to wait for a masterpiece figure.. one where both modes are recognizable from the show.

some people like it, so that's good, at least it'll show hasbro that we want the line to continue. i just hope it doesn't continue the way it is.

Im still on the fence about this figure. Ill have to pass by TRU and check it out. Im not sure if I want to skip the pointless metallic red and go for the takara version. Or I might skip the stupid macross jet mode all together and wait for mechaform Sky Guardian.

I think you mean this one (complete with armor) by Yamato now known as Arcadia. Yup, Jetfire is a cheaper alternative. Even the Bandai re-issues of the Takatoku molds are so hard to get bye cheap

Well, there are the two Leader-Class Megatrons coming next year....G1 and the Armada remold. So they're still doing Leader Class. I would have liked a few more paint apps on this version, even if it meant losing the red chrome. I could do without that for a less spartan looking figure.

Nope, you win! You got this at Kmart? I'm not far from you in Richmond, so I need to keep an eye out. Nice find!

No, I was not "on crack" when I wrote it. I don't care for comments like that, and they aren't necessary. Comment on the figure and leave it at that. In other words? Knock it off.

For the negatory posters, maybe just don't buy Jetfire? There's DACA toys and the other 3rd party fig out there (2x or 3x the price iirc of the official release). I too would have preferred a G1 cartoon accurate rendering but we get what's given to us. Hasbro and Tomy ain't forcing us to buy him anyways.
