    Jetfire is a bot of science, literally. Not only is his mind dedicated towards scientific pursuits, but his body is a testament to the technology he studies so intensely. (Some would say "religiously," but not in his presence.) Every inch of his chassis is cutting-edge and kept up-to-date. However, he does not have the trust of his teammates; it was not so long ago that he was a Decepticon. Jetfire is compassionate, so some Autobots feel that he could be soft on their enemies or, even worse, he may turn on them after realizing his "cold calculations" swing the other way.

    Jetfire would find their misconceptions about science appalling. After all, is not science just the pursuit of truth? And truth, he maintains, walks hand-in-hand with liberty.

    Sunstreaker knows to the core of his spark that he is better than any other Autobot, and he makes sure everyone else knows it, too. His sociopathic tendencies, combined with his incredible vanity and arrogance, usually result in tension between himself and the other Autobots. He is generally unwilling to help those who are having trouble keeping up, and is quite audible when it comes to complaining about the shortcomings of everyone else. The only Autobot he truly gets along with is his twin brother, Sideswipe, and even that can seem strained at times.
    The main reason Optimus Prime keeps him around is most likely Sunstreaker's effectiveness in the battlefield. Ruthless and skilled in all forms of combat, there is not much Sunstreaker cannot handle. As a front-line warrior, Sunstreaker is a great asset for the Autobot army. If a rather scary one.

    Things to note:

    Jetfire - Prone to mechanical malfunctions, not a lot of endurance, very fast and intelligent seems like a lot to handle for most bots

    Sunstreaker - land to air missile could help in this battle, just a straight warrior, and more endurance. One of the best autobot fighters but lacks in size and sheer power compared to his competitor...

    I love Sunstreaker, but does he have a chance against Jetfire??

    Someone please sell me both ways!!

    Sunstreaker....

    Jetfire would get stuck in Gundam mode and be arrested for copyright infringment and Sunstreaker would claim the cheap win....come on he's not above doing that!

    Jetfire seemed to be able to match up to megatron and shockwave at time, aside from the odd being taken out by a random seeker shot he's seems pretty up there. Sunstreaker kicks ass and takes name but as long as jetfire doesn't brake down i think he could take him.

    I'm voting Sunstreaker, if only for my hatred for Macross :p 
    I also think Streaker has the potential to turn this battle in his favour.

    Based on my esteem for the character of Jetfire as a leader-class heavy, I'm going to give it to him. Cartoon Skyfire on the other hand, despite his moment of glory handling Megatron like a misbehaving child, was pretty much a big goof.

    Though it would be an interesting fight... Sunstreaker is a straight up warrior. He's outclassed, but I'd still give him a small chance.

    True, that artwork looks better than Jetfire's. I had to think twice on this one, but Jetfire gets my vote.

    Actually, with his indestructible torso armour, wouldn't Sunstreaker be the "Iron Man" of Transformers? :) 

    I'd forgotten about Sunstreaker's mad armour advantage... though I still lean towards Jetfire.
