    You know, that cool old guy from ROTF, Jetfire [known of his epic quote "That's how I brought pain in my day!"]

    What do you guys think of him? would you want him to return in Dark of the Moon?

    Opinions here.

    I doubt he could return, he ripped put his spark and his body got completely rearranged and transformed upob combining with Prime. Though as little chance there might be of him returning, I'd love to have him back. Cool character, had so much potential :(

    Spark was ripped out but..............the spark chamber was intact. So in theory such an intact spark could be installed in a spark-less body and Jetfire of some sort would carry on?
    It is interesting about that shorty twin engine ship that appears around Prime and Sam/Carly. Could be Jetfire components?

    I would like comics or a novel tackling his disgust at the Fallen and defection from the Decepticons. By Wheelie's calling him Chairman of the board it seems he was the leader of the Seekers.

    The IDW origin story of him does not gel well with ROTF, defecting right off the bat. Add a bit of Thundercraker doubt to the cause.

    Perhaps as a former opponent of that Prime and his Autobots on the Ark. Making him rethink about the Decepticon cause.

    Really didn't care too much about the character either way. A few things I kind of liked about him but also some things I didn't like.

    Highly unlikely that he would be back since robot time is going to be limited by the budget so I expect them to use that time for all the new robots.

    I thought he was a highlight of ROTF. Don't really see him coming back, though I'd welcome it - logic means nothing in Bayverse.

    I just watched TF2 again and still can't stand the Scottish accent and the fact he was depicted as old. Awesome alt mode but the character wasn't to my liking. I'm fine with him not being in TF3. We will have silverbolt hopefully. I'm saying he's the space shuttle

    I loved the character.

    He being the old awesome dude was epic, I really missed that kind of character in TF.

    Shame that he died, he could be brought back somehow [Optimus Prime and Megatron both died and returned], but I doubt [although it's widely admitted that he was the Ensemble Darkhorse of the second movie].

    Still, he could appear in Transformers Prime with a similar appearance and personality [as in war for cybertron he had the same "whatahell"-accent that he has in ROTF], so we still have a chance of seeing good and OLD Jetfire again.

    He was the only character in the film I found to be rather endearing. But the space bridge thing was beyond ridiculous.
