    Acutally I bought jetfire about a week ago... the jet mode is really really cool. Like my old 1/72 model..so I am thinking maybe buy another one later for displaying in jet mode. this one, I guess it will attach to prime for a while.. lol

    For the leaders I plan on buying 2, One to keep coupled with Prime and one to keep in robot mode as he has always been my favorite transformer since I was 10.

    That's what I want to know. I will have to see it in person, but it doesn't do too much for me combined. Probably a good thing, since then I would probably have to buy two of each figure.

    I'm sorry, while the Prime figure looks great (the one thing keeping me from buying him is the fact Hasbro still refuses to give him his movie face, sans faceplate/battlemask), I can't get behind this. And it's not just because I don't care for this new Jetfire's look at all, it's that this is suppose to be the grand feature? Prime's an understandably fair purchase for a Leader pricetag, Jetfire if you're into him, but that feature right there? Lame. Just sad. That's hardly a Leader Class combined feature worth the approximate $90 pricetage in full.

    Ergo, pass.

    I really like the copper touch ups you did on some of the gears and the legs.

    I think it looks nice. I wasn't really expecting too much out of the whole combining thing, so I'm happy with it. Thanks for the pics!

    Woof, that's gonna be one big bot when combined.

    Still, the combined mode isn't the reason to get him. Optimus Prime I got because he's Optimus Prime, and he is the BEST toy rendition of Movie Optimus Prime we've ever gotten (Those of you still clinging to the Voyager toy as the best rendition... yes it's a good toy... but it's NOT the most accurate, it wears the alt mode as a BACKPACK. Let it go...)

    And Jetfire? The SR-71 is probably my favorite plane of ALL TIME. Flies faster and higher than anything short of a rocket ship, and it's painted black. And now we get an SR-71 transformer, with an apparently lovingly detailed alt mode?

    YES PLEASE!

    The combined mode? We'll see when I've got it in hand.

    Pictures of the back of the combined mode and the underside of the SR71 would be nice. If it's another case of Silverbolt-syndrome, then it's a pass for me.

    Combined- Another example of electronics getting in the way. The large speaker/battery pack behind the legs is awkward, which is probably some of the reason it isn't articulated in combined mode. That's sad, really. The Prime figure is one of the best Primes ever, but this takes away from it when it should do the total opposite.
    Personally, I just don't like it. It's an unnecessary gimmick that couldn't be done 'properly' unless there were more true scale between the figures.
