    While I love Jetfire's new design, that Toy leaves a lot to be desired.

    I honestly hope that Jetfire gets a Voyager class toy, or we get some good pictures of this mold posed properly. Lying down on cardboard or in a box, in an odd position doesn't really do the toy justice, imo. Not really news either, imo, as neither one of the pictures really shows us anything new, but I'll leave it up to the mods to decide if it's news worthy or not. The more I look at Leader Jetfire, the more I think he could have been a much better figure if he didn't combine with Prime. Though the electronics don't help either. A "Premium" repaint could help to a certain degree. As-is he has too much of the gray-ish-blue colored plastic.

    I'd love to get a transforming toy of Jetfire, as he is my favorite of the new Autobot designs. It's just kinda sad that, so far, the best looking transforming toy of him is the Legends class figure. Though out of all the toys the RR looks the best, though it doesn't transform, and will be needing some black paint to fix it. Here's hoping he somehow survives this movie, and somehow gets an improved Leader class toy in the third movie's toy line. Kinda like Prime's new Leader class figure compared to the one made for the first movie's toy line.

    As a huge fan of movie-verse, that's pretty awful looking. The black head and thick legs look terrible.

    The movie design is impressive but the toy looks very disappointing.

    Aside from the head, that looks almost nothing like the CGI model.
    Hopefully a Voyager Jetfire will do the character justice.
    At least the alt. mode is excellent for this one.

    Oh right, I forgot we still hadn't seen much of this toy. Nice, solid back. Digging the Skunkworks logo. Also,

    There certainly is that.

    Interesting. That definitely nips that in the bud (yizhi is in the know about this stuff). I may wait and see how Leader Starscream looks before getting the Voyager.

    It's nice to see what Jetfire's cane isn't permanently attached to one of his arms. The shot of his back just makes his backpack look even bigger. Though it does show the molded in detail for jet-mode, and the nicely scarred Decepticon logos.

    I like the alt mode, bot mode is too weird.

    I love Jetfire's design...but this toy is not pulling it off. I'm hoping that the compromises made for Jetfire's toy at least lend themselves to a badass combination with Prime.

    Appreciated on the pics available..
    It looks slightly complicate than the Universe Silverbolt. I really don't want to get it just because it gets a combined mode with Prime.

    well, I had skipped energon wingsaber and cybertron wingsaber, I don't see a problem to pass this.

    seriously, I thought more of the movie-verse design than something like this. We've seen deluxe sized aircraft with better transformations.
