    I was wondering if anyone else thought that maybe when Jetfire combines with Prime, it might be in some way a kind of permanent change to Prime?

    Maybe since Jetfire might be so old, he sort of sacrifices himself to add to Prime and then Prime permanently becomes some flying jet-truck (much cooler looking than it sounds, of course). Maybe the Matrix helps combine the two. It would be a huge upgrade, as he would be one character and the only flying Autobot in the series thus far.

    It just seems like a major crutch if Prime always has to have Jetfire around to become Super-Prime.

    I don't know, wierd random thought. If this has been brought up before, I'm sorry - I'm an unoriginal bastard.

    rumours floating about are Prime's merge with Jetfire gives him problems reverting to his old self (one big one is one of the bots shoots Prime in the back killing Jetfire too) highly doubtful IMO. I'm sure this isn't permanent and is strictly needed for the TF2 story line. I hope this isn't permanent, Prime is Prime he doesn't need a permanent combined mode.

    This was confirmed to be false. Some guy just made it up to be a dick.

    Not if the guesses/assumptions concerning Springer are right.

    I dunno, I see them combining and then separating only to have Jetfire sacrificing himself in some way to take down Devastator. Makes sense to me.

    I doubt very much it would be permanent.
    Jetfire will probably end up dying one way or another though.

    More than likely, he is old though and I don't suppose they have robot retirement homes. :)

    What if the toy is just the combiner and in the film Jetfire just gives Optimus a lift? Like how in the Narnia series the griffins hold the children, dwarves, rocks etc.

    I think the combination will be the last act of Jetfire. The combination sacrifices Jetfire's life and after the fight is over, the extra armor will be removed from Prime and Jetfire is no more

    I think this is right too. However, I also think that Jetfire will combine in efforts to revitalize an injured Optimus. Nothing is confirmed though so we shall see.

    What if Jetfire fuses with Prime after The Fallen/Megs/Devastator beats the crap out of him, like what's supposedly happening with Megatron

    When Jetfire and Optimus combine...

    Will Optimus have to use the cane?

    Good God this is going to suck.

    We've seen an outline of the movie model, they are fully combined as one, large robot.

    So, you are saying the combined mode is going to suck because Optimus will use the cane, which you don't even know is fact?

    My brain hurts.
