    Even if you don't have Prime he is worth it. Check out the feedback forum for tons of opinions.

    he has an awesome alt mode, but i really dislike his bot mode. kinda reminds me of a crouched hermit.

    I think he's alright. I don't care for his combined mode with Optimus though

    I gotta say from the pics and video reviews on youtube I'm not seeing the alt mode. I call that type of mode silverboltitis.
    I always thought g1 sliverbold looked like a robot with a concord on it's back. Basically meaning there wasn't much "disguise"
    from the underside at all. To me leader jetfire has the same issue. it's like, "nice lookin stealth fighter from the top" but a
    complete lack of any attempt to hide it underneath. Plus, the combined mode looks like a brick from the waist down. Not trying
    to start a rant but just from what I've seen online I don't get this toy at all.

    Pretty much my opinion on the figure, too.
    If my daughter didn't like it, I wouldn't have bought it. It's the only figure I've bought in recent history that I don't feel as though I got my money's worth.

    I bought leader optimus on the first day. Jetfire is no priority for me, not at $50 after tax. I know I will get one at some point for the combined mode though.

    Jetfire is absolutely worth it...if you have Leader Optimus. I wasn't all that impressed by the figure (getting him into jet mode is a lesson in pure frustration) until I combined him with Prime (the fan mode with the awesome feet, mind you, not going by the official instructions). The sheer size and power on display in the combined form is a sight to behold. I have yet to see many photos online that accurately capture just how awesome he is. I basically view him as add-on parts for my Prime.

    yes I have mine combined with prime and he looks great. Robot mode is pretty sweet too. The alt mode had it not been for the kibble would have been just as awsome.

    i bought the figure for the combined mode, tried combining it with prime and failed miserably... maybe i could have tried harder, but i don't remember armada jetprime or RiD omega prime being that frustrating. i also agree with the others who said it's a robot with a blackbird for a backback. From the top the jet looks nice, because blackbirds are really awesome looking jets, but from any other angle it doesn't look too hot. i wasn't a fan of the robot mode either.

    I'm sure others will say the combined mode is easy to achieve, but I had a few issues, too. Primarily the back. I can't get mine to plug in properly, and so it uses the belt as the main support. Weak, as far as I'm concerned.

    I agree that it looks good and massive in combined mode, but it's pretty much brick-tastic. If it were at all posable, I'd like it more.

    Mine will either be displayed in combined mode as a stagnant centerpiece for my movie figures or separately with Jetfire staying in alt-mode.
