    Can someone tell me the difference between these 2? I noticed the canopies are a bit different. One doesnt have a rub sign. Is one a pre-rub version or something? Any help would be great.

    The only difference I see is that the right one has no leg stickers :redface2:

    yea, true :)  The grey part on the canopy is a lil different. where one doesnt cover up the little circular thing, and the other covers up half of it.

    I can see the difference... Does one have Macross symbols on it anywhere?

    Could the canopy thing just be that one was put together wrong or something? Seems like a weird variant if it is one

    Um... Um... Isn't there a page with a list of variants somwhere?

    I'd imagine an ebay search for "transformers jetfire" with a little digging for images can come up with something...

    Yea, I'll dig up some stuff and see what I can find. It probably isn't anything major, I'm just curious to see what the deal is. I appreciate it.

    Barely noticeable, but interesting. Sadly, the thing that stuck out most from your first photo is that you have a filthy habit (tobacco). Yuck. (I know, I know, preachy preachy.)

    Fine looking Jetfires, though.
