    So here's the latest addition to my line of Tetrajets, Jetfire. Right now I'm working on some harder stuff, but I'm still doing the jets on the side to keep the line going. It started as Cybertron Starscream Supreme, and finished as the biggest and sharpest jet I've done yet I think.

    Jetfire has 3 modes: Robot, jet and Mecha-mode!

    I believe when Jetfire entered earth's atomosphere from space during exploration, he would've actually still been in his Cybertronian-Tetrajet form, not an earth-jet...but I still gave his numbered designation "VF-1" to tribute the original toy which was modeled after the Valkylrie-Fighter 1 military jet.

    I also implemented his original G1 boosters into both modes, as optional features, which can be displayed in multiple ways in both modes, or can be taken off completely. I gave him a ball-jointed head, and modified the head to resemble Jetfire's and get away from the Starscream-look. I added a second barrel to his gun and added a peg to the bottom so you can pop the gun off and have him actually hold the gun in his hand. It all worked out, and you can comfortably wedge the boosters between his wings in the back to resemble the G1 booster pack from the cartoon. :cool:  He's now up for sale on E-bay :thumb

    Reminds me of the very first episode of Transformers where Skywarp and Thundercracker are in alt-mode on Cybertron.
    Also reminds me of a Star Wars space ship, but can't remember what they called it.

    I like it! Awesome usage with the SG Decepticon insignias. I would never have thought of making him a Tetrajet. He's probably in scale with the Classics Seekers. Well done.

    Thanks man, I finally got him done amidst the other projects I'm trying to juggle :cool:  Jetfire has a wingspan roughly 17", about 14" tall in jet mode, and about 16" tall in bot mode...he's a little beefier than the other jets I did.
