    The only thing I can recommend, as I have been trying to work this out myself, is make him with a helmet/mask that flips up, or can fit over the existing head.

    Everyone's Jetfire's so far are headswaps.

    Other than that, I can't wait to see this baby be born

    If you're going for realistic, you should ignore Dreamwave's "illustrations".

    that,s always possible BUT i always need to take in consideration 2 things...

    1. it needs to be possible to reproduce (bigger cost allot more)

    2. the joint system needs to be able to handle the weight....

    but we,ll see how it goes !

    Seeing as how this is from the Don-Dreamwave era I think it'll be just fine

    Don always draws/designs his bots to be transformable
    [Don's scratchbuilt plenty of his own Transformers designs in his time as well so I think its safe to say its realistically workable :D ]

    Cant wait to see this! you always do an incredible job on your scratchbuilds Anemis!

    Please try hard to make it affordable for us poor folks. I'm a gigantic G1 Jetfire/Skyfire fan. And I've always wanted something you created, so why not have the best of both worlds? :) 

    By the way for some really good images of the Dreamwave G1 Jetfire, look no further than here.

    This guy has some really nice skills in duplicating the Dreamwave's Don designs. and it's fully transformable.

    ...and, for kicks?

    WOAH thanks !! that will defenitly help allot !

    as for a production run i hope it will be possible... it all depends on the size of the thing and how well it can be molded... take magnus for example... just in molds alone i have more then 1000.00 invested just for that ! so the bigger it is the more complicated it becomes...

    i wish i could cut down on prices but i rarely can because of the mold/cast/paint/labor hours that is involved... that,s why i now offer an unpainted version so the cost usually comes down a for magnus and omega supreme it goes down 150.00 so this is what i do to help a little bit...

    again i really thank you for the images they are kickass !!

    do you know who made them ? i,d like to thank him (always give credit where credit is due)
