Look there! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s jet! It’s the Autobot we all want to get! It’s Jetfire! Courtesy of Dorksidetoysover at TFW2005 we have some lovely clear shots of the Autobot Air Guardian in all his G1-styled glory. A nice treat is the extreme close up of his Autobrand flipping gimmick. We also get to see him in both armored and unarmored modes, including an up close shot of his face with and without his helmet. Take a view and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew. This is one hot item fans of old and new will no doubt be clamoring for.

Well Siegefire is looking mighty nice. The silver on the guns is great ;)^

Guess I need to commit $80 to a pre-order :ic$:

God $80 that's such a kick in the wallet, yowch. It looks like an excellent toy and I mean the closest to an official MP Jetfire that you could get - again, official. That's just so much money I think I'll have to devote to Omega Supreme. Is anyone planning on getting both Jetfire and Omega? Or are you like me and it's either one or the other?

I guess they couldn't decide on how the mask should look. In the first renders it looked like it did here, but the prototypes at WonFest and Toy Fair had extra unpainted blue bits.

I only collect MPs, yet this is one toy that I struggle not to buy. Always loved the character, can't be helped, I suppose.

Jetfire looks so good, and I hear rumours that Symths in the UK may be stocking him :? Can't wait to see what other characters can be put in this class, Tidal Wave anyone?

Also Stargrave I respectfully disagree about Galaxy Upgrade, for me I find the original to still be better in almost every way... Plus you can't use leobreaker (and all repaints) on Galaxy Upgrade ;)

Me: I'm going to try and be frugal and show some restraint

Also Me: *checks Amazon and see that I already pre-ordered both*

Me: Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking there...

If anyone wants to pay less, just wait a bit for Black Friday. Both he and Omega are ripe for the kind of big ticket item Amazon and other web based sites like to discount to bring in crowds. I can't remember a year where that didnt happen. Paying full price for these bigger mass market items is basically just a tax for getting the toys when they come out early. Hasbro is well aware of this price cycle or else the same thing wouldn't be happening every year and they would not still be making big bots like this (let alone 2 in one year).

Well, he may fit within an MP collection depending on the specific episode you are adhering his scale to ;)

I've actually collected very few figures from this Siege Line, so getting both Jetfire and Omega Supreme are in the plan for me. As others have mentioned, I'll definitely wait for both to go on some sort of sale. There's still a few leftovers from the Japanese Legends line I want to get first before they become scarce.

Dang, I'm glad I have no attachment to this incarnation of Jetfire.

You mean the Thrilling 30s version, the only uses of this mold we got in Combiner Wars was the leader Class seekers :lol:

I'm personally getting Omega but not Jetfire. I have my perfect Jetfire in the Thrilling 30 one, and I am not a fan of the Skyfire aesthetic.

We've had good jetfire toys for over 30 years.

I would even argue that we have not had a bad Jetfire toy

I mean yeah true, the G1 and Thrilling 30 toys are pretty great, but this one just is THE Jetfire toy I didn’t know I’ve always been waiting for. Now all I need is a Siege Galvatron and I’d be content.

Oooo Siege Galvatron would be Sweet! I’d love to see new Cyclonus too, something a little more streamlined than the Combiner version.

And yes Galaxy Upgrade does not combine with Leobreaker, that’s true....and it’s kind of a hot mess when he does I love him I love him but gorilla fists or lion tippy toe claw hand that isn’t, well, really a hand doesn’t win out for me. If he didn’t have ogre fist if he didn’t look like he was on stilts if he didn’t flippyfloppy all over my deskytoppy I’d be ready to agree with you.
Plus I’m probably just biased to the new shiny object I totally get like that.

And those aren’t wheels on his trailer we all know stationary non-rolling wheels are obviously galvaconductors :lol:
