    Is there any difference between G1 Jetfire and Macross Valkirie?

    I've seen lots of pics of these toys, and I can't see any difference. Is there any, or are they the same sculpts?

    P.S. How do I have to say it? Between Jetfire and Macross or among Jetfire and Macross?

    I think they're identical.


    And you're right, it's between.

    "Between" is correct.

    Jetfire is similar to Roy Fokker's VF-1S Super Valkyrie from the TV series. There are several differences between the two. Jetfire has red striping instead of yellow, and no pirate-type insignia.

    Yes, they are the same sculpts. Hasbro sold several Bandai products as Transformers in the early years, and Jetfire was one of them. This is why he was not in the show, and had a different design in the comics -- they had a license to sell the toy, but not to use its design in fiction. Jetfire's comic-book design was the same as Skyfire's on the show.

    Actually let me elaborate on that....
    The fueselage/nose sculpt is from the VE-1 ELINTSEEKER, the AWACS of Macross VF-1's. Though everything else is primarily VF-1S, especially the head, what makes Jetfire different from the ELINTSEEKER aside the VF-1S head and FAST pack armor, is that the fact that its a single seater. The ELINTSEEKER canopy had 2 seats inside, rather than just 1. So its basically a VF-1S mold with ELINTSEEKER nose(blunt tip rather than sharp).
