    Yeah his landing gear turns into a cane.

    The Legends toy just doesn't do it too well because, well, it's a Legends figure.

    Leader-toy probably gonna do it better, Ultra Magnus hammer-style.

    I have no idea if it's a cane or not, but I guess at this point I am inclined to say that it is. While the idea is kinda silly, a robot with arthritis is strangely appealing. :D  I can't wait to see the leader class figure. So far its what I am most anticipating that we haven't seen yet.

    I think most Transformers ideas are silly. That's why I like them so much. :D  I mean, it's no more silly than a glowing axe sprouting from Prime's hand, or the G1 characters having extreme cases of paranoia and childish guilt complexes.
    "I'm sorry Prime. I don't know what came over me."
    "The important thing is you learned from your mistake. Now go clean up your room."

    Of course I have to again ask the much asked question. If a living machine such as transformer can scan a vehicle and transform into a replica of it in 20 seconds. It should be able to re-grow, heal, re-join damaged parts to as good as new in 20 seconds.
    Stiff joints included.
    Canes, not my idea of a good time. Used one after breaking a leg. After a while I found myself doing everything an old coot does with a cane. Using it as a pointer etc.

    If that is the case, why do they need medics like Ratchet?

    Yup, that's the point, I think. Some injuries just need assistance, as in Bumblebee's case. If Jetfire didn't have the help he needed, he may still be injured. Who knows.

    That's a good point as well. If you can reformat your body to include vehicle engines in your legs, why not just reformat new legs? I guess an alien might think the same thing looking at us. If a human's body can heal itself, why do they need doctors? The question sounds ignorant and silly to us, but from their point of view, its a valid question.

    sounds good to me.. he is huge and can fly so would be good on paper but is too old and bust up to be able to fight, prime is the opposite... so combining makes sense

    yup it's a cane. Odd idea, but it could work.

    So long as he shouts "I'm old!" at someone then i'll be happy. Whilst waving his cane around. :D

    Man, you'd think with this many complaints about an old jet with a cane...I mean, obviously Jetfire should take a page from Lt. Dan and get some new, magic legs.:rolleyes:

    Maybe it's like how humans have perma-scars? It's been with him for so long it's PART of him, and is carried over when he reformats. (Like Ironhide's scar)

    maybe in his supposed old age, his regenerating armour doesn't work like it used to.


    Or maybe it is a pimp cane. I dunno.
