Is Jetfire the geriatric robot that Michael Bay mentioned?

    I remember Bay saying something about a geriatric robot being in this movie. Now that I've seen Jetfire's movie bio, it says that age was one of the main reasons that he changed from a Decepticon to an Autobot. Also, he seems to be using some sort of "cane" in the teaser trailer...

    Are these things related somehow?

    He could do the Abraham Simpson thing and shout, "I'm old! Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!" as he enters the social security office.

    people are saying the landing gear in his hand is a cane...i dont see how its a cane perosnally as canes usually...you know...reach to the ground....

    anyways sam elliot would be dope for a voice actor, and jetfire doesnt have a beard...if anything thats a mustache...if it was a beard we would see his mouth, personally i believe thats a face plate

    great choice.

    oddly i think lawrence fishburne could do a good jetfire

    it would be kinda G1 reminiscent and still have depth and age to it.

    Sam Elliot or Lance Hendrickson.
    Better than Rod Stewart from South Park.
    "I pooped ma pants."

    I just hope they don't make him a grumpy old robot. A mature, wisened veteran fighter would suffice. Kind of like Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond. Old, but could still feed you your ass.

    I agree, I doubt he will be acting like hes seen the last of his days. I see him being like kup from g1. He might surprise some of you and beat the living hell out of the fallen for all we know. :lol
