Thanks to a tip off from fellow Seibertron user, TFanPage101, we've learned that YouTuber TonTon Reviews, has just reviewed the highly anticipated Commander Class Jetfire figure from the Transformers War for Cybertron Siege toyline!

In the review he goes through the basics of transformation, scale to other transformer figures (namely Leader Class Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime, Deluxe Class Prowl, Studio Series Leader Class Jetfire and Studio Series Voyager Class Movie 1 Optimus Prime), all the points of articulation, and a run down on all the action points of the toy. This includes showing its interaction with other Siege figures and how Titan/Prime Masters can get in the fun via Jetfire's cockpit!

We have embedded the video below for your convenience.



What do you think of this figure? Are you looking forward to adding Jetfire to your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

haven't watched the thing in detail... but it's shaping up to be an awesome toy. TF of the year will prolly be a battle between this and omega supreme for me.

Really wish he would have also used a CW Combiner for size comparison to see just how accurate Hasbro's 11-inch claim really was.

When Hasbro first revealed Jetfire, they claimed it to be 11 inches tall.

That height, however, would make the figure shorter than the likes of the CW Combiners (who are all about 11.5 inches tall), when all images of the toy make it appear to be much taller than that.

Eyeballing it he’s 2 “leaders” tall or 3-4 deluxes.... i’d say 11-12” is on the money.

He’ll certainly be bulkier (if not heavier) than the combiners. He’s got a big ol’ empty chest and backpack shell

Yeah, seems about 2 Siege Leaders tall, so you can guess his size

Hi, new Autobot here!
Recent fallen n love again with TF toys..a.fter a long time to not buy anything, but the Siege line is really cool form...you think there any possibility Hasbro will realize Wheeljack and Bumblebee into this line too? I know Wheeljack was asking to fan to choose, but I just still hope the will give him another possibility...and maybe some Dinobots too? thanks for replies

Interesting, I just tried the video again and now it's not working on my phone (even though it's where I watched it before I newsed it)

I need to check something.

It appears to be working now. The glitch I'm sure was the video itself, not your link, since I accessed it from youtube directly and still had problems.

Hello there! General Kenobi

I think at some point in the next 3 years, Wheeljack and Bee will be realized in some form, not this year, but maybe the next 2 years after that.

I doubt we are going to get a full Dinobots team again soon, after the PotP ones

Tell us how he colors on Sixgun match up with Takara Tomy's release of Metroplex. I have the SDCC version of Metroplex, and the reds are just a bit off from one another, but not enough to be distracting.


Just found Sixgun at Target today, so I can do the comparison that was requested:

Image

Sixgun's red is noticeably darker than Takara Metroplex's red. Not enough to really mismatch, but it's fairly noticeable.

That seems to be the case with Hasbro's SDCC release as well. They're not quite the same, but they don't at all clash with one another or look out of place when displayed together.
