    I do hope that when the idea comes along, when they have to combined that they inst a 15 minutes discussion about it with the auto bots like "through the powers of the old blah blah, we must combined and be rid with this evil" i hope its just like 2 example there both charging towards devastator either alt mode or robot mode or however and they both just transform straight away if you get me?

    what are your thoughts?

    I always liked the Jet/convoy(sounds cooler than Jet/Optimus)combos

    they did it in armada and Cybertron why not in the movie.

    It sounds alright, if it's to give the Autobots more of a chance to take down the Cons, then it sounds alright. I think it most likely will be used to take down Devy. If anyone saw the keyring of OptiFire(Optimus & Jetfire), they had wings, maybe those same wings can be used to get where the humans might not be able to, i.e., getting right up close and personal to Devy and to take him down.

    My thoughts? I think that you need to learn to grammar. I didn't understand a single thing you said.

    Ehh, I'm just alittle worried. Especially on how they..explain it.

    I dont know, with all the explosions and shaky cam I have a feeling a lot of non-hard-core TF fan movie goers are going to be sitting in the theater staring and asking "Optimus can fly now? what happened?"

    Well, story goes that Jetfire pretty much serves as a jetpack more than as a pair of pants (a la Armada). This way seems a lot less cheesy.

    It is cheesy. Optimus Prime ought to be able to give as good as he gets...on his own.

    Agreed. I think it's a pretty weak idea, and I cringe at the very thought of this unholy union.

    It would only be cheesy they combined with a siezure enducing background, take 15 minutes, say retarded diologue during the combination, and then at the end, after combined...

    I've invisioned it that when optimus is down, jetfire approaches his dying body and offers his own body so prime can live on and become stronger, and it's just jetfire transforming into some weird armor that combines with prime, and jetfire dies.

    I dislike the idea of 2 random transformers being able to combine whenever they want to. It brings up a plot hole, where every autobot and decepticon on screen should just combine into one big one and have it out power rangers style, every time they fight.

    Combining should be saved for transformers who were designed to combine like the gestalts.

    If however, they manage to give a reasonable justification to why Prime and Jetfire can combine, and not make it an innate ability of all cybertronians, I might warm to the idea. I have to see how it plays out onscreen

    I dislike the idea. For the first movie it was like "Oh it order for it to be believable we really need to cut down on the gimmicks", then all of the sudden everyone and their mums are combining.

    I'll have to see it on film to give a final judgement. But right now the idea brings back horrible memories of the Unicron Trilogy.

    As long as the sequence isn't Armada style, I'm fine.

    Calling all the hits Naruto-style is the next move.

    A-men to that! Only gesalts need to combine. So far, we have the twins (possibly), Prime/Jetfire, Arcee-bots and Devastator.
    Maybe Sam and Mikaela can combine...

    If they wanted an homage from that series, why not a character rather than an over-used gimmick.
    Random combining sold toys in A/E/C. It's inclusion in the movie-verse isn't needed.

    I still think Jetfire dies after the combination. It'd make sense, in a way.
