Wasnt really interested in this guy at first but after seeing the movie he's a buy even tho he'll spend his time combined with my Prime. Tho, Itll be about another two weeks before i can pick him up(unless i can make good tips next week).

Jetfire is a cool figure. I actually prefer to display him next to Prime as they become an omega brick when they are combined. It's easier to display them separate and Jetfire has so many details on him that I'd rather not hide them in the combined form.

He's an great figure and is absolutely huge in jet mode.

I was a happy boy when I found him and I hope he gets wider distribution soon so all of you can get him.

I've been looking forward to this guy ever since I saw him at BotCon. That jet mode is HUGE and made of pure win. So robo, any hope of getting some more pics? Maybe in jet mode? ;;)

I loved the character in the movie, but I don't really want a leader-class version, since it's a little too big and expensive for my tastes. The only other versions I've seen are the tiny legends class one and I think maybe a "Fast Action Battler" or something. Aren't they going to make a deluxe or voyager class for people who want something in between?

He is leader class too, so probably same price as OP.

I got one today and he's kind of a let down. I dunno...there's nothing wrong with him he's just kind of...thick, like in the same way that 07 Movie Jazz wasn't exactly right.

The cane is what makes it for me. I just think it's cool to have a transformer that has a cane. It's silly and cool all at once.

Jazz needed to be more on the slim side. That was what kept him from being an awesome figure.

Jetfire's issue is in his size. He needed to be a Supreme class. He's grossly out of scale with Optimus and the combination really shows it. Hasbro managed to get the combination to be fairly accurate to the on-screen portrayal from the front, but that came at the price of his leg mobility. The combination in the movie didn't use all of Jetfire for the combination, but the toy did.

It probably would have worked better if they made Jetfire a Supreme class and only used a certain portion of him for the actual combination. Or they could have gone the Armada route and had Jetfire turn into power legs.

Overall all, he's still a fun figure.

The only reason I would buy him is to combine him with Prime, though pictures of combined mode doesn't look impressive. Is it better in reality?

Got mine today at Target in Schaumburg, IL, Golf Rd. He's large and in cha-HARGE! Almost 18 inches long in jet mode. The kibble underneath isn't as bad as I thought it'd be, but there are a few parts used for the Optimus Prime combination that literally stick out like a sore thumb. Still an awesome fig.

I just picked up Leader Prime at WalMart, and lo and behold, when I picked up Prime from the shelf, Jetfire was right behind him. However, i did not have enough money to get them both. If i got Jetfire I would combine him with Prime, and display them together. However, there were no instructions with Prime regarding the combination. I assume they're with Jetfire...? Also, could someone post some pics of them combined? The ones I saw so far aren't showing them off in impressive light, but the pictures aren't so good. I really want to get the combined version, but I gotta be sold really good to spend $50 more.

Leader Prime is Bad Ass, btw. I thought he'd be at least as big as MP OP, but he's a bit shorter...

This is a pretty good stance to have. Thinking like that, you won't be too disappointed after buying it. I kinda like the combined Prime/JF product, but there's not much going for the figure in the articulation dept. Still, I really like it. A partsformer would have probably been ideal here(think Omega Prime). It also would have jived with the movie. Maybe even a skip on the electronics for JF, and that could have helped get an ENTIRE leader class figure onto Prime's back a little more efficiently. I mean, shit ... sometimes the electronics gimmick can be sacrificed to save bulk/weight for combiners like this.

Hasbro probably thought ... "Oh noez, we must retain everything to justify the price point"! Geh, I really wouldn't have cared, tbh.

If the figures didn't combine ... Jetfire would not be worth a buy, imo. The only thing awesome about this figure is looking at him in jet mode, but from the top only. All of that undercarriage nonsense, is ... well ... nonsense.
