I'm planning to have him as Classics G1 Scattorshot.
I think he's a cool mold personally. Although, I went with the way cooler looking (imo) Overcast
But Jetfires color scheme is more scattershotty
It's a pretty lackluster mold.
It's a good mold, I just wish he would be more sleek and tall like his CG Design.
Apart from not having neck articulation, I quite like the mold. It definitely gets more flack than it ever deserved.
I say no.
He's not worth more than the voyager pricepoint.
No. Robot mode isn't that good and the alternate mode is pretty ugly. I'm glad it's no longer in my collection.
I'm using him for the same thing.
He's one of the most disappointing figures I have ever bought. He's head's too small, his hands are too big, he's a shelf hog, I...just never could like him even though I wanted to.
This is coming from someone who loves the AEC toys and who has pretty much every incarnation of them. He's just so lame...
I like him. His bot mode suffers, but the alt mode is very nice, in my opinion.
I don't like energon jetfire. The robot mode is OK but the alt mode is pure weakness.
nah, he's shit. get r blade or something instead.
...What the hell is wrong with his alt-mode? It's a space shuttle with giant ass booster rockets.
I'm using Henkei Strafe as my Scattorshot (and Energon Skyblast as my Strafe). Of course, that's a tad more expensive then Energon Jetfire.
Never cared for that mold. To me, he was the worst looking Jetfire throughout the entire Unicron Trilogy, and a big disappointment. The gimmick just destroyed him.
By "destroyed" you mean "killed his neck articulation", right? Because that's the toy's only real flaw. No crippling instabilities, no severely hampered articulation, no godawful colours. Again, what exactly is everybody's problem with this mold?
For me personally, MX, it was his whole look that just ruined it for me. And the Powerlinking feature didn't help because it made his shuttle mode look awful, due to the enormous appendages.
Again, he's a shuttle strapped to a giant booster engine. The shuttle part looks like a sci-fi shuttle, and the booster part looks like... a giant booster engine. I really don't understand what's so bad about it. It's not even like he's got obvious limbs hanging off him or anything. The arms tuck behind as the Shuttle's main engines entirely inconspicuously, and the legs don't really look much like robot legs at first glance.
It looks sleek, but rugged and powerful.
The powerlinking gimmick required that all of the bots transform a certain way and all had boxy bodies. If powerlinking was cool that would be one thing but you usually ended up with an even bigger robot with an even bulkier body, a tiny head, small legs/feet and naught for hands.
I like him.
