    If you own any version of this mold, (Classics Jetfire, Universe Treadbolt, Henkei Skyfire, Henkei Dark Skyfire etc. etc.) Do you display him with his helmet on or off?

    I'm thinking about displaying my Classics Jetfire without the helmet on to make him look more G1-esque. What do you think? Does anyone else do this? Pics?

    I display him without. The helmet looks big on him and I'm a bigger fan of his cartoon look than his toy one :)

    I display my Treadbolt with the helmet on, namely because the more "show-accurate-to-Jetfire" head is a little small compared to the rest of the figure, in my opinion. That, and I think the helmet looks cool and not something to be put in a parts bin.

    Without, because the antennae/guns on mine broke. It's a Treadbolt, by the way.

    ... god, I hate the brown on the figure.

    I swap it occasionally. Currently he has it off, but up until recently he was wearing it.

    For the most part, I prefer him without. Unless I combine him with my Classics Prime :D

    I agree. The toy-accurate-big-head edges out the cartoon-accurate-small-head. Besides, i really dislike storing accessories when they can be displayed.

    On the flipside, my Dark Skyfire is displayed without it.

    With Jetfire, I leave the helmet on. His head sculpt is nice, but it's kind of small, and I prefer Valkyrie over Show-Accurate. (though, the helmet on isn't much better).

    With Dreadwind, I leave the helmet off because the whole draw of that toy is the new head sculpt. Also Jetfire has all of his armor while Dreadwind leaves the jetpack off to make him more like himself.

    With. The Jetfire head is just a bit too small for my tastes. I like the helmeted head also. I've got a Dark Skyfire.

    Without, I like having a Jetfire that has his "anime" face.

    I also think that the helmet was a great little extra allowing him to be displayed in toy accurate version.

    With.

    I prefer slightly-oversized-helmet to pinhead.
