    Ok so I love the idea of OP getting flight tech in the movie. So I was thinking what would Classic universe OP flight tech look like. So here's the back story, after his first battle with War Machine and getting beat up pretty back Prime was P.O.ed. He takes Wheeljack to the weapons and spare parts area of Autobot city and they brainstorm up weapons and flight stuff. They take Jetfire's extra gear and built up flight tech that will fit in his trailer that he can grab and go with. (If I had a trailer for it to go in :lol  ).

    The next upgrades I want to do is get a sword that attaches like Movie OP but has a classic look. I need to get him his axe and then figure out a way for him to use his windvein as a shield.

    I think the flexi sword thats coming out with TF Prime Prime might be the right peg hole diameter, and would possibly work well. I really like what you did with the figure. If I had a spare Jetfire pack, I'd probably do the same.

    I think Venska has/will have a piece that plugs into the windvain to make it a shield. Nice work on the jetpack

    Nice! Maybe for your back story you should have Jetfire ripping out his own spark just like in the movie :)

    This was something I whipped up a last year when I was on a weapons hoarding kick.

    looks good:thumb , and I've figured out a way to make the shield:
    straighten out the arm kibble
    fold the door so it is parallel with the bottom of his arm
    rotate it so the headlight is facing his elbow
    flip the fist down
    plug the vane into his fist, flat side down
    get the door so it is roughly flush with the shield
    ta-da!

    why not use the G2 optimus sword? it fits perfectly and looks suitable for him.

    That looks awesome. If only you could do that without having to cannibalize jetfire.

    Thanks everyone the compliments! As for sacrificing jet fire, well I actually had started another project to repaint him but had a accident disassembling him. So he was sitting around I piece with no direction when I came up with this idea.

    Also thanks everyone for the ideas on the swords and shields. You have given me some great ideas to thing about and play around with!
