    Overall, cool little guy. The face could be a bit better, but when you have him in hand, he's neat. Paint apps are awesome and he has decent articulation. The soles of his feet are on ball joints so they pose really well. Knees could be a bit better in range of motion, but he's an old man, so it's forgivable. More pics tonight.

    Also, notice the Autobot logo on his left shoulder.

    I like him, and might buy him because the leader version doesn't really interest me.

    Cool. Though that shade of blue and his back make me think of Mr. Sinister from the X-Men, haha.

    @ Sentinal Pax:

    Looks more like Commander Cobra to me. [!] TF and GI Joe crossover!

    Anyways, Looks cool, but I'll probably pass.

    wow, what a crappy sculpt, he looks fat and stubby, not spindly like weve seen in the trailers etc. Alot of missed detail...

    Looks pretty cool, the new robot replicas are really better than the TF1 versions.

    Only downside IMO is the lack of interchangeable arms.

    I agree. Also, just a few more monoshaft joints would have greatly improved this guy. I may mod him to use some revoltech joints.

    Looks good. I'll buy it if I see it. Though I wonder why he has that much blue.

    Not sure. Hasbro seems obsessed with replacing grays and silvers with blue lately.

    Another strange thing I have noticed is he has no thumb on his right hand.

    Why is it that two out of the three leader class figures have superior smaller versions floating around? Isn't the whole point of paying the extra to get a nicer, more detailed toy?!

    In fairness we've only seen two images of leader jetfire so far- but neither looked very promising.

    I doubt if I'll buy any Jetfire toy- which is a shame because the one in the trailer is fantastic- possibly the best new bot of the movie???

    Looks good. Though I still think the only RR I'm likely to get is The Fallen.

    Ha! I noticed another thing. If you look at this pic, you can see what appear to be his eyes, and the what is painted red are actually his eye brows. This may differ on the final version (if there is a final version, that is). I should be able to correct it on this one.

    I like the blue, but overall I'm uninterested in the Robot Replicas.

    He's Jetfire. He doesn't NEED a thumb on his right hand. Because he's that badass.
