    Howdy!

    Here is the pictorial review for ROTF FAB Jetfire!

    THOUGHTS:
    Why my shoulders hurt?

    I do not know if he combines with FAB Optimus. There are maybe one or two spots that may suggest so, but I dont own OPS so no idea!!!

    This new FAB is so so to me. It does give us a little more insight to maybe the structure of the leader class figure, but there are some not so great things about this one.

    Jet mode is nice and sleek, but does have some kibble underneath, but hey its a FAB.

    Bot mode is extremely limited in movement. Head can move up and down, arms can only move up and down, left and right. Legs can move all around and the lower legs can move in and out of the top back leg for height. Feet only move up and down for transformation into alt. mode.

    Arms and or legs how ever you look at it are non proportionate from each other, big time.

    The left arm missile flips down to reveal his "cane".

    Right arm fires missile and has a switch like peg you can move so the turret fires and spins after fired. You have to move it back and forth.

    Face and chest have some nice details making him almost knight like, but the lack of movement and possibility on him take aware from his playability, but overall an ok representation, hes just kind of odd.

    Enjoy!

    He looks like a real sturdy toy for such sleek alt mode.

    Awesome for kids, but I'll take the Leader!

    Thanx for the pic review ! I wish this one would get a Voyager release instead of FAB/Leader class because I really like his design and I prefer buying Deluxe/Voyager class.

    His stance kind of reminds me of this: [​IMG]

    I'm a big fan of personal logos / the faction symbol being altered to fit the style of the vehicle, so I love the symbol on the tain section. It's really cool.

    Not a bad looking robot either, though I'd like to see the mainline version, since the Fast Action Battlers tend to lean toward that chunkier style.

    This actually makes me feel that there is a lot of promise for the Leader Class version. I am pretty impressed with the overall look of it.

    Im also hoping for a G1 colored repaint of the leader version as I have a feeling that it will look better combined with Prime. Although having not seen anything outside of the Legends versions, I don't have much to base that on.

    Better than FAB Starscream, that's for sure. Thanks for the review!

    His head looks like The Maxx. All he needs is little Izz following him around.

    Really digging where that robot mode is going, and can't wait to see the more "accurate" leader and movie designs.

    None of them noticed that Jetfire was ther in the trailer. In the second trailer you can see Scorponok jumping over Jetfire at1:33 . Only his right hand and right leg are visible. And you can also see the Jet engine in the right leg as seen in the toy line.
