    Uh, yeah. I'm not sure that's how the combined Jetfire is supposed to look. The dude couldn't even get Jetfire's robot mode right.

    I've tried a few different combinations with my Prime and Jetfire, and nothing really looks like anything.
    My brother did have an intersting idea, though: maybe Jetfire merely "latches on" to Prime's back while in jet mode, giving Optimus some flight capabilities. Maybe there is no super-complex combination at all.

    Jetfire's "robot" mode in that image is his combining position, look carefully :)

    If he can't even take the time to transform Jetfire into robot mode, then I can't take him on his word *crosses arms, wishing this forum had the Something Awful Colbert crossing arms smilie*

    I was looking at Jetfire with his funny legs and long arms and I wondered if Optimus sits in his embrace like he's sitting in a NASA eva pack.

    holding Jetfire's spindly arms as control points and perhaps resting his legs on Jetfire legs like Jetfire is a flying exo-skeleton for Optimus.

    Rather than Jetfire just slapping on his back.

    Hopefully Prime will look better in person, because in all the photos I've seen thus far his proportions are simply goofy.

    they should just call jetfire jetpack cause that's what he'll be when they "combine". it's just gonna be a stupid gimmick that i'm sure bay and co. thought of at the last minute.

    Nice try.

    If "bay & co." thought of it at the "last minute", we wouldn't be seeing completed toys with the combination 6 months before the movie is released.

    Late-stage changes by the movie production team would include things like OP's sword from the first movie, which the Hasbro team didn't see until about March of 2007, and didn't reach toy form until about a year later. (And then only in the form of a Robot Hero and a remold, neither of which take as long as engineering a whole new toy.)

    So Cybertron Wing Saber was a last minute decision too?

    Surely there is someway the combining could have been done better? Jetpacktimus Prime just doesn't seem to work that well. EVEN for a legends class figure. Fortunately, the two molds individually seem to be good enough to warrant purchases :)

    What is "better" to you? Energon-style combining?

    okay then maybe they planned this for a while now and had months and months to develop something and in the end they thought that sticking a plane on primes back would be some sort of visionary idea and justified it by saying it's "combining".that's even more pathetic imo.

    First, all we've seen are attempts by a few folks to combine the Legends versions of the characters without the instructions. There's really not much basis there for knowing what the combo will look like in the movie, or with the larger toys.

    Second, you can hardly lay the blame on "bay and co." for a combined mode that does little more than stick a plane on Optimus Prime:
