Two different power up suits/armor for optimus?

Is Optimus's trailer just a cover up for the jetfire suit parts?

  1. No! Just look at the ultimate optimus prime toy!

    So i have read through quite a few threads on how people think the trailers just a cover up for jetfire parts, but i think their are two different suits, first the jetfire looking one that was in the teaser, and second the trailer, which according to the toy is way different then the jetfire looking one we saw in the trailer. what do you guys think?

    I think that prime flys up to the ark to grab some armor.

    i think optimus would respect jetfire's corpse and not use it until it rust's away on his body

    Jetfire died to give them to OP so they could beat an unstoppable enemy. I doubt Jetfire would mind him using them again. I mean, they're OP's now to use to his advantage whenever he wants to.

    To hell with what Fartfire would think. ;)

    Where/when was it announced that Optimus Prime would be re-using Jetfire parts?

    Speculative for now. But OP couldn't fly until Jetfire gave him the ability in ROTF. I could be wrong but for now, that's my assumption until the story or more evidence comes out to dispute it.

    I think its just a upgrade for prime. I don't think he's using jetfire's parts. Its probably more of a, "hey flying was pretty effective, lets make something so I can fly on my own" kinda thing. I think jetfire is dead and gone.

    From the trailer I personally think that Prime will have two seperate power suits. The first being the omega armor (the trailer) and the second being the new jetpack shown in the trailer. The jet pack from the trailer looks to be an entirely new design, so I don't think Jetfire's parts will be a part of DotM.

    Possible, and if that's the case, that's fine.

    However, Jetfire was "dead and gone" before OP flew off using his jet parts in ROTF final fight. And it's not like OP needed Jetfire alive to power his jet parts.

    So, why couldn't he keep using his parts in DOTM?


    Again, another possibility. I just figured since OP got the gift of flight in ROTF that this would be his means of flight in DOTM. I haven't studied these frame-by-frame to claim myself an expert on any of this.

    I'm game for any possibility. :cool:

    He's not using Jetfires parts. I looked at the trailer twice and the screen caps. They show different looking engines, which Jetfires were big and the ones in the trailer were smaller.

    Didn't he have it when they were filming at NASA too?

    I wonder if he gets it in DC because I also remember them filming there and Prime was just the cab.

    Nothing to do with Jetfire, I think.

    The Jetpack and weapons are just that, tools.
    But the big powermaster mode with his trailer will really be something.

    yep.

    running fan theory/rumor is once they get to the Washington, DC part(mostly confirmed with photos/vid of them filming scenes of Prime without & with his trailer) is when he officially gets the trailer & then has it from that point on in the film.

    Maybe it is JetFire's. "Recycle, it's good for Cybertron."

    Didn't all the parts fall off OP after the final batte? He was standing on the ship with Sam without them. I very much doubt he would reuse the parts again, much more likely that they come from the trailer especially going by the Ultimate toy. Even the parts in the trailer looked different to Jetfires parts to me.

    And again, within seconds of landing the Jetpack parts are discarded. This is nothing to him. Just a means to get about. Like strapping on a parachute or something.
    He isnt huge and menacing like he was as JetPrime, it's just Prime with a rocket pack and a couple of weapon upgrades on his arms.

    The engines and wings are all wrong too. I think the Jetfire parts theory has very little going for it.
    This, I would guess, is perhaps another tool created by Einsteinjack or maybe some hardware from the Ark.

    To reiterate what others have said, the jetpack that Prime wears in the trailer IS NOT Jetfire, the engines are different, the wings are different and there are certain parts that have the flame details that match his vehicle mode.

    Now where these parts come from, I have no clue, because I don't think they are his trailer, not enough mass there for it to be his trailer.

    I KNOW THAT THEY ARENT JETFIRE PARTS!!!!!!!!! sorry about that haha, thats why i said the "JETFIRE LOOKING ONES" not jetfire parts, the engines in the trailer looked way more high tech but i agree its sorta just like a quick parachute type thing.
