    With no instructions.........
    Took me a long time to transform it.
    Thanks to Peaugh's review, thanks to YOUTUBE......
    I love this figure as well as the awesome combine mode with Optimus.

    I dont even want Leader Jetfire, but when i finally see him it's going to be really hard not to break down and buy him just for the simple fact that he's so hard to find. once i get the rest of the movie line i want, i may consider picking him up.

    good for you though. i know the feeling of finally getting the one you want.

    so... wouldn't that make him "hard to find"? i mean i haven't seen any at any store in my town so he actually is hard to find. I'm not talking "rare release" here, I'm talking about hard to find. I realize some day he will be all over the place.

    No instructions? Hah! >_< I'd have cried. Granted, ROTF instructions seem to make it more difficult than it really is, but I'd at least like a sheet of instructions as a safety net, especially with a figure like Optimus.

    Yeah, he's definitely hard to find, and will continue to be in quite a few areas. With Wave 1 not moving worth a damn on their shelves, any given store with slow or bad sales won't restock Leader Class. At least not around here. Which is odd, you'd think Prime would be a hot seller at least...

    I'm not sure Jetfire will be all over the place like we think. Bigger cities, I'd say yes. Smaller cities, suburb/rural communities with just a Wal-Mart or K-Mart, no.

    Yep, seen a lot of Megs and Optimus. I saw 3 Jetfires in a Walmart on Sunday. Not sure why I didn't pick them up. Now, they are no where to be seen all around town. Still kicking myself.
