    Just got this guy today. and was definitely easy yo transform from jet mode, but, now that it's in bot mode, does his helmet go anywhere if it's not on his head?

    There's nowhere to store it in bot mode unless he's wearing it. My Classics figure wore it all the time before I sold him, but my current Henkei's helmet is balancing on his arm like he's "holding" it.

    The only way I know of is to sit it on the hinge behind his head. You can have to face backwards, and use the antennae as shoulder-mounted cannons. There isn't an official way to store it otherwise.

    Hell yea he does! To fend off all of the hater bots who didn't get epic homeages like his mold did, and to watch Hound's back for the same reason lmfao.

    It also goes over his hand and will stay there nicely if you want that look.

    I love the Jetfire mold.

    The Dark Jetfire is the best deco IMHO
    More fitting the "guns on yer guns to shoot while you shoot" thing that the mold has going on.

    Definitely agree with you there. Real glad I snagged one when he went clearance at BBTS.

    Aside from the hinge method, it'll also wedge between the backpack's cannons. I wasn't confident that doing so would be all that safe for the antennae connections in the long run however, so I haven't bothered with it beyond the first time.

    I like with the helmet on. I donĀ“t like the small head he has withouth it. Plus, the visor gives him a more sci-fi look.

    That... has nothing to do with this thread.

    Also, thanks guys for the suggestions. I'm really liking the look of this on the hinge!
