    So I picked up Jetfire this morning, and he's massive!!

    It took me quite a while to get him into jet mode, but wow, is he ever big. a LOT of kibble in robot mode though :(  kinda sucks, but you can tuck most of it away behind his back.

    He is quite impressive, I don't mind the kibble that much. Took me a while longer the first time transforming him because pieces kept falling off. You should get Prime also, if you haven't done so, they look nice paired together.

    I may end up getting one, but the kibble is a real turn-off for me. Also, the only good pictures of it in alt mode are from above. From the side, not so good.

    the kibble isn't horrible though, if you really want, you can take a screw driver and just remove those parts :p

    ok, why does everyone keep going on about the paint app on this first edition, in those pics its looks just like a late style SR71, with decepticon logos...or are they talking about botmode?

    After looking at his bot mode in person at the store.... I'm not too impressed personally. Seems too blocky. His whole torso seems like a big squarish block, and the kibble in jet form does kinda bother me a bit. Especially haveing the engines hanging off underneath. I don't see why they couldn't have found a way to have them store inside the engine housings themselves. The size of his jet mode is definitely impressive and DOES look really nice from the top, but I dunno.... I'm still VERY much on the fence for this guy.

    i disagree with ya on that.
    In Peaugh's pictorial review thread in the Feedback forum, there's a table-level profile picture that doesn't look so Kibble-ly. it in fact sealed the deal on me getting him.

    Not so thrilled by bot mode, but love this figure anyway.
    Scratched up Decepticon Faction symbols, the Skunk Works logo....nice paint app on mine.

    Jetfire is fail, his bot mode is terrible and his jet mode only looks good from the top angles. He's a leader class, he should be near perfect like optimus is. It's not really transforming when the bot hangs on to the bottom of the plane.

    This is really a disappointing figure for me personally. The robot mode is very awkward and irritating with the back kibble. The Jet mode is only fine from the top, and looks like a hot mess from the bottom.

    I would have preferred that the figure was a parts-former for the super-mode if that was the only way to get him closer to his CG counterpart. And that in itself would've actually been movie accurate too.

    Could someone please post the measurements from nose tip to tail tip, and wingspan. I am thinking of using him for something else and want to know what scale he roughly is.
