    I finally decided to get Legends Optimus and I figured I might as well get Jetfire so they can combine. Well when I opened Jetfire, I couldn't figure out how to combine them. I looked around online and all the Jetfires have a little peg on it that lets it plug into Optimus (which is what I thought) but where it should be on mine, there is a hole instead. I went back to the store and noticed that others didn't have the peg either! I found one that did thankfully, but I was wondering if others have had this problem. It could just be the store because this is the same place I bought a Universe Hot Shot with an unpainted face.

    What should look like this...

    At least you can combine Jetfire with Jetfire now.

    looks like it just quality control/paint misshap. also a store has no control over the quality or appearance of a toy, unless it is a exclusive. all stores get their stock of toys from the same place, hasbro. when you collect your going to get a bad one now and again.

    Well that store is retarded (they still have movie 1 toys that they refuse to clearance). And I actually tried combining them...looks kind of dirty though.

    Yo dawg. I heard you like Jetfire, so I put a Jetfire on your Jetfire so you can die while you die.

    I just bought the "War For The Skys" pack at kmart and the jetfire included in it is one of the ones missing the peg :( .

    Which is bad for me because the whole reason I bought the pack was to combine it with my legends prime and now I cant, so I am now super sad panda. Because I have no idea why hasbro would make a mold that has a hole instead of the peg. *sighs* I guess I gotta start hunting for him again in my local stores, even though I haven't seen a legends jetfire yet.

    I would just exchange the set, but there is nothing really wrong with it other than jetfire, plus there is no guarantee the one I exchange it for will have the correct one in it. From what you said, its quite possible all of my stores shipments is the one with the "defective" mold. Plus, since this is a exclusive pack its quite possible the majority of the sets are of the defective mold.

    So I suppose I will just pretend this one is jetstorm and when I get a actual legends jetfire then I will have them combine to form the animated style alt form :(

    Legends Jetfire is majorly warming shelves in my neck of the woods, along with Springer.

    i bought mine heavily reduced in a supermarket a month or two ago, so you shouldn't have to hunt for long...

    maybe its because of wave 5's prime redeco? It's supposed to look more screen accurate color-wise when combined with jetfire... so maybe this makes them combine a little more secure or something with a similar change done to the prime mold? *shrugs*

    I think it may just be a production error, Jetfire (2009) - Autobot - www.tfu.info

    Because my Kmart jetfire does NOT have the grey peg, and instead there is a socket there where the grey peg would be inserted. So its quite possible that the peg is so small that some of them get left out by accident.
