    I think its a great figure. my opinion might be alittle biased beause i only paid $35 bucks for the thing!:)  (half off sale at freddy's)
    but if i paid full-price i would think it would be a smal dissappointment because i wouldve spent so much. at least I wouldnt have paid $99 bucks for a brick like devastator....

    I like him, but would wait for a price drop. He's definitely not worth full price.

    Its an Ok figure. In regular robot mode his forearms don't bother me as much as the fact that he can't hold his arm straight while holding a gun. To me, he would be more fun if the trailer was like the Voyager MechTech trailer, capable of holding other figures and extra guns.

    I agree. He's a decent figure but not at about 60 bucks worth.

    I got one for my Stepson for Christmas so I've had a chance to mess around with it.

    He's not bad, but the supermode is really a giant brick. The Optimus figure is weak at best, odd proportions, skinny legs & the Cab mode has wrong proportions too & the trailer is too wide compared to the cab.

    think I'm going to hold out til they hit tjmax/marshalls/ross @ $30-40 prices. that seems fair to me and about what I'm willing to spend on it.

    Well this. The review thread in the feedback section would be the best place to go but my thoughts on it.

    Got it for 65. The vehicle mode looks awesome with the traile. Prime with out the armor is not perfect but pretty good. The super mode is a complete brick but i think it looks awesome and the huge wing span is cool. I think its a fun toy to get but not everyone is gonna like it.

    that's two different price scales. But yeah, i'd definitely pick jetwing over ultimate. although i got my ultimate for $50 before i realized how much of a brick he was in robot ultimate form. got myself a nightwatch jetwing and am saving up for a jetpower & striker prime.

    I really like him. I was surprised how much I liked him. If you get him on the cheap he's even better. He's got some cool features.

    I'd buy it on deep clearance, like $20 or less. Other than that I avoid it.
