    I've only seen him once back in Nov of 09

    I really desire this guy, so should i get him for $59.95 on Amazon?

    edit: Thank you everyone for the advise! Finally got ROTF Jetfire from a fellow TFW user for $30. Nearly got it for $60 O:

    He's not worth $60 in my opinion.

    He can't stand up on his own well. His transformation is clunky. His combination with prime isn't much more than bulky kibble (and takes away from the near perfect prime figure)...
    I could go on and on.

    I'd say he is worth $30 or less if you can get him for that.

    Not worth it, he's just annoying to put it mildly. He's one of the ROTF toys that never should've seen the light of day in my opinion.

    He's alright. If you can get him for cheap, by all means.

    There's some better fan modes on the Prime combination instead of using the official one.

    Mine was like this:

    Agreed. Get him for the combo with Prime. Plus, personally I think that he is just fine as a stand alone figure, both in his bot mode and his alt mode. Neither is fantastic, but he is still a fun figure.

    I wouldn't pay $60 for him however. He is probably one that you can keep an eye out for a good deal on eBay or you may even be able to find him in stores. I saw one at a local Walmart just before this last Christmas.

    RW, did you do any mods to get Prime's legs like that?

    I wouldn't spend $60 on it. While the vehicle mode looks good and is very large and impressive, the robot mode sucks and the combination with Prime is absolutely worthless. Not worth even standard retail price, let alone $60.

    He's not worth 60 bucks. If you can find one for cheap (check out the Junkion Exchange here!), I'd suggest him. I have him in alt mode hanging on my wall showing that badass plane mode (with undercarriage hidden against the wall).

    HOnestly i still see him at retail at a few stores so do not pay 60 for him. If you have prime he is worth retail but not 60.

    Love Jetfire, the alt mode is MASSIVE and the bot mode is unique. And the fact that he combines with Prime is just another plus. No problem paying full retail for him.

    Nope. No mods whatsoever. Just straight up different transformation.

    I agree with most of the posters here. It's a cool figure but not worth $60. The regular Leader price point is pushing it. If you can get one for like $35 or so I'd say go for it.

    Thanks for the advise. I have an offer for $40 from someone here, but i never bought anything here on TFW. I'm use to Ebay and Amazon. So how does this work? I give them my email and?

    I felt he was a major pain in the ass to transform. With that having been said, I'm an SR71 nut, so I had to have him, just for the alt mode. Luckily i paid next to nothing for him.

    Ebay:
    i only paid $25 shipped for mine from a guy on this forum actually... so for that price i felt it was worth it. i wouldnt have bought it new, or pay close to $60 for it now.

    as far as buying from members on the forum... see if they have a feedback thread with buying/selling.. and then usually you guys work out a payment and most people use Paypal to make payments, but thats all up to you and the person you are buying the figure from

    I to been wanting the ROTF Jetfire, but I agree with most here about the $60 is not worth it.

    Remember the ROTF Devastator where it was priced for $100 at retail stores? I bought one from some guy for $60.

    Ebay:
    i got him and he was transformed the day i got him to alt and that's been the extent of my playtime with the figure.
    he displays much better as the jet or as the combo; the robot mode is rather weak. If ya can get one cheap, grab it.
