    A jet, a plane, or a copter? Or are jets the same as plains?

    This is also a pic request thread, haha.

    Could I get Skystalker + Terradive with Highbrow + Tomahawk?


    Currently, it would have to be G1 Jetfire, but I don't know if he's a plane or a jet. Guessing the latter

    EDIT: I meant Mindwipe, sorryyyyy

    WOW good question but i feel the need to break this down. Favorite Jet would be easily the MP Seeker mold. The jet mode looks incredible! Plane i think of one driven by propeller and i gotta say HFTD Highbrow. Great vehicle mode awesome robot mode. As for a choppa i dont have many helicopter tfs. G1 blades Blackout and Tomahawk oh and Buzzsaw with the armada Cyclonus mold. I gotta go with Tomahawk.

    Is sunspot ok as a fill in for Skystalker. I dont have skystalker but i have the sunspot repaint and the other figures i can get them together for a shot.

    Animated Megatron. A very simplistic transformation, from a very powerful helicopter mode with a HUGE fusion cannon, to a very powerful robot mode screaming a sleeker, more muscular G1 robot mode with a kickass fusion cannon and dual rotor swords!

    Plane would have to go to movie Highbrow. WWII inspired goodness is really fantastically detailed, even if he is NOT a P-38.

    Copter would be movie Incinerator. Yeah I know, he's technically a plane, but I don't care. I don't like any of the copter molds out, even Tomahawk.

    Jet would be a tie between leader Starscream, and generations Thunderwing. Starscream is big, boldy detailed, and awesome to TF, but Thunderwing, is Thunderwing!

    Ebay:
    Copter: I still have some love for Universe Blades. The color scheme is great and I just like how the figured turned out, even if he is a repaint.

    Plane: Withholding answer until I can hold the new Lugnut in my hands. He may take the spot.

    Jet: Terradive. I like the classics and MP seeker molds as much as anyone, but I love the transformation/engineering behind Terradive.

    Plane is a hard one, since there are a bajillion Transformer planes and many of them are very, very good figures. However, for purely personal nostalgia reasons, I think I'm gonna have to say:

    G1 Powerglide

    Runners-up would be Jetfire (either G1 or Classics), the Classics Seekers, G1 Darkwing, and Takara Leader Starscream. (Ha, beaten on Powerglide by Wollstone... who clearly has excellent taste :) )

    Helicopters aren't as plentiful, and there are some cruddy ones. If pressed I think I'd say:

    Cybertron Evac

    Runners-up: Tomahawk, G1 Sandstorm, Animated Leader Megatron, and G1 Spinister

    You gotta love a Transformer who inexplicably grows an LED heart through interspecies mating rituals.
