    TfWiki only shows 3 toys for him, excluding Robot Replicas. So by my count, that's 4. The only one I think is any cool is the Legends toy. Does anybody know if we'll get him in 5th form?

    And no, the Leader toy is an aberration.

    Proportions are wrong, and he's just a backpackformer.

    there is a legends, a fab, a replica, and a leader.
    thats plenty.
    it would be a waste to give him a deluxe or a voyager spot.

    A voyager to combine w/ voyager Prime would be nice, but seeing as they used movie 1 Prime for the voyager that'd be impossible anyway

    I don't see how that would be impossible. They'd just have to engineer Jetfire around combining with that Prime.

    Wouldn't be different from how FansProject engineered the Commander armor around combining with Classics Prime.

    It wouldn't be impossible if they designed the voyager Jetfire around the Prime.

    ...I'd still pass it up. I'm amped about the Leader classes...

    Leader Superior...Everything else Inferior. His alt mode may have be a robot on the bottom of a SR71, but it is still huge!

    I wasn't all that impressed with the leader Jetfire either, untill I saw some picks of it recently on HLJ: RA-13 Jet Fire

    Apparently these guys are the only ones who know how to pose this figure in robot mode.
    I think I just may be getting him after all...Not from HLJ though, that'd be silly.

    Leader Jetfire is not an aberration. He is a great figure.

    I don't always agree with Mechs, but this is true. Jetfire will appeal to all. He may be like Silverbolt, but Jet carries it out godly. Don't forget about the combination, Jetfire is the epitome of Jet formers. Until Starscream at least.

    The SR-71 is my favorite jet of all time, and that alone will sell me on the leader class. My Go-Bot Snoop has been waiting 20 years for a big bro.

    I just hope the final toy preserves the matte finish.

    I'm sure we'll see a robot heroes version of him, but somehow I don't think that's the answer you want.
