If those two legends combine I'll be buying them just for that fact!

Wheelie looks awesome.

Jetfire looks like crap. Looks more like a Mini-con than a Legend.

I will have to get Wheelie when he comes out. That looks better than the origional.

I hope the bigger Jetfire toys look a lot better than that does. Poo is the only word that comes to mind. It is obviously some kinds of plane, but whats up with the wings? Mistransformed?

Wheelie superior. Jetfire inferior.


Bet that's something you thought you'd never hear.

He's a Blackbird and yes that is horribly miss transformed.

lol, you can say that again. I think I'll be picking up the annoying little bugger myself. Then I have an excuse to buy the TFC Wheelie/Kup set. :lol:

Very cool indeed.

If this points to a possible combination between the larger prime and the larger Jetfire. I'm going to have to buy them.

seriously, WTH?

Edit: sorry, never mind.

I never thought I'd live in a world where Wheelie was cool. But THAT is a funky little legend. I'd like to see it in a full-sized figure :D .

Wheelie looks pretty sweet but Jetfire is mistransformed and looks like he just crashed or lost a battle with Megs.

Jetfire has a plug.

Optimus has a slot (back roof of his cab).

I'll be interested to see if it serves the purpose I would speculate it does.





Interesting! I wonder if this is confirmation of their combining in the movie, that would be great.

I dunno. When the rumours first started appearing, initially I was against it. But the idea of combining legends is pretty cool. Even if the combined form is rather craptastic and rudimentary, it adds interest, makes something a little more unique. A legends based combiner Devastator would be awesome(in addition of course, to a larger figure).

I don't think we can really confirm the Prime/Jetfire thing until someone gets hold of the toys and demonstrates what's possible. From here, it looks like it could work, but we don't even know if the peg and hole are the same dimensions to fit together. Image

Even if they do fit, and even if a pretty good combined mode can be produced, we still can't be sure whether it's a toy-only feature, or based on an actual scene from the movie.
