    Many on this board have jumped at the first red and white bot shown in robot mode and have claimed it to be Jetfire, I just want to make a clear case for a second look.
    note: the bot shown in the first pic, is more likely to be the smaller red and white jet while anyone who knows g1 knows the bigger white jet is more likely to be Jetfire's jet mode and does not match up with the pic of this red and white bot.

    Keep in mind how the wings of this bot bends at the tips, it should be clear the one called Jetfire in the vids by the dev does not match with this bot.

    don't get tripped up by the ds screen shot, I'm just using it to show this jet matches the same jet in the next gen shot.

    Still pointless. The DS and the console version have different development teams. Trust me, the robot in the first pic is the console version of Jetfire.

    There's only one DS shot there.

    The 4th picture in your line up is the official-unofficial Jetfire. During the interview, Jetfire's name was dropped as that footage was shown, so it's only natural for the views to assume that he is Jetfire. However, this jet also appeared in other trailers along side the Aerialbots, which leads me to believe that #4 isn't Jetfire at all. Number one, not only has Jetfire's colors, but even looks pretty similar to classic Jetfire's mold save for a few changes and wing placement.

    Ok, i found this, haven't seen it elsewhere .... although i'm kind of useless at all this uploading vids and pics stuff so bare with me .... (Hope this works!)
    Here is (Well should be) Jetfire from either the PS3/360/PC version, not sure which but here he is where you get a better view.

    ^ :eek:  Where did you find this? I don't think it's been seen before. That's definitely Jetfire. Nice to finally see face.

    EDIT: His face seems...slightly off. I don't know what it is.

    Errr .... i think it was on Ausgamer or something, they did a preview write up i just read this morning, it didn't mention one thing to my memory that we haven't already heard about a dozen times already and i was going to post about it but got side tracked and thought i would see it else where on here. This isn't the full pic, i cropped it slightly just to show Jetfire, the full picture is Jetfire shooting at what looks like the larger drone from the other screens.

    That's cool. He has the chest of G1 Jetfire (toy version), with the red V shape pointing down to the cockpit (even has the shoulder tabs)... but the head of G1 cartoon Skyfire, with the human face, blue eyes and helmet stripe.

    Since i made this thread i will admit to being wrong but it was due to the game dev. saying this is jetfire and then they show who we now know to be silverbolt in the game video.

    Is this the big flying platform used to transport troops and prisoners?

    Well, that's certainly Jetfire. Unfortunately he looks horrible.

    Lulz at the huge Decepticon drone. I find it amusing for some reason.

    And while we're at it, who's the little red guy shooting at him? I'm assuming he's a playable character yet I don't think he's any of the main character molds we've seen. Maybe a multiplayer palatte swap of Jazz?

    EDIT: Just rewatched the multiplayer trailer and that's not a Jazz mold.

    See the treds? I think it's Warpath. He has been confirmed.

    You're right!!! I wasn't thinking of those as treds. There's another pic of him next to Ironhide on the Ausgamer site and I was also thinking that he'd be a little larger than he is.

    You can see the same "mold" from the front in the multiplayer trailer where there's the Ultra Magnus colored Prime. @ 0:57/58 there's a light grey/silver guy around white Prime that has the same three-toe feet as that red guy, but he's got a large triangle shaped suspiciously cannon looking thingy sticking out of his chest. :thumb

    I too was thinking who this guy might be and to the fact that those arent wheels but i dunno? The picture that one site referred to as Zeta Prime looked a lot more like Warpath to me than this guy, but then again, this guy is on the small side, just like Warpath is (Even though he's a tank) ..... We need an official roster already! lol
    And whats with all the red characters ... even the gamespot demo, most if not all the drones in there were red ...
