    I just picked up this one today, and well.......it's now in my top 5 ever.

    The play value, the aesthetics, the nod to G1.....it's all there!

    Keep doing this, Hasbro!!!!!

    If I were one of those that didn't have this, I'd strongly advise you to get one as soon as possible.

    My only little complaint: A little back heavy in armored robot mode. The helmet's a nice touch, but I think the figure looks much better without it in both robot modes.



    Just sweetness. I had to gush about it.

    Sweet. Jetfire was actually the only classic that I planned to get. I'm on the lookout for him.

    Same here, so far, Jetfire is the only classic I plan on buying.

    I'm also aching to get my hands on help but from what I heard he's short-packed...based on the pictures I've seen of him so far, I really take my hats off to Hasbro for coming out the Classics line...I only wish they would continue the line after movie and not treat it as a filler.

    He is truly amazing. I picked him up at Wal-Mart this afternoon and have barely put him down. Hell, he's sitting next to my keyboard as I type this. :lol 

    As far as the Classics go, he's probably the best toy in the line (although, in all fairness, I haven't found Grimlock yet). Both modes look great, robot mode is highly poseable, and the armor add-ons are fantastic.

    Classics needs to continue, if only so Hasbro can try to top Jetfire. They probably can't, but their attempts would result in some amazing toys.

    From what I'm seeing, Jetfire beats Grimlock both in terms of design and looks...arrghh, I envy all the Classic Jetfire owners...

    Personally, I rank Jetfire lowest of the three Voyagers, but still a very solid design, like pretty much all Classics.

    Anyone else prefer keeping the wings down in robot mode, for a more cape-like, less fairy butterfly look?

    And not as uncommon as one might think, if you follow "Superman is a Dick".

    Each moment between me and the day I run my trembling fingers over Classics Jetfire's supple chassis, is a moment of eternity. :(
