    What would you change on the legends jetfire to make it look like you would want it and to make it look like the best legends figure ever.

    First of all I would put some arm articulation on it and make the arms thicker as well as the legs.

    Second I would make the neck of the blackbird more shorter to make it more accurate and also so it won't look strange on the robot mode.

    Third I would put the legs closer together.

    dude, it's legends/ they're meant to be small and kinda crappy
    it's what convinces people to buy the bigger more expensive ones

    PaulPrime's done some awesome stuff to the LOC line, so they're not all crap...

    I dig'em, 'cause they're cheap fodder to practice on & they're pocket-size.
    Personally, I'm just trying to add a hinge to the BB's nose, so it'll fold up when in bot mode.

    Absolutely! Paul Prime does some great Legends modding! There is a lot of hidden potential in the Legends figures, and at that price point I guess some sacrifices must be made. If you want a tricked out, articulated Legends, PM Me and I'll git-r-done!

    Here is some references for you to see the potential in the Legends guys! These are all my work.

    ....and for those do it yourselfers out there

    I disagree, they are meant to be small, not crappy. I think there is a lot of detail to be found in Legends myself!


    As for Legends Jetfire, I would add arm articulation, make the nose cone collapse and fan out more to look like his "cape" in the movie, and probably add ball joints to his ankles to help with better poseablity.:thumbs2:

    I quite thought that legends Jetfire is a budget-conscious collectors best bet at getting the character. Maybe its me, but I think he beats most of the legends figures, except a few like Prime and the Fallen.

    I'd try and make him at least as impressive as Snoop from the GoBots. I can't help but feel the technology should be there.

    If I was fixing legends jetfire, i'd be compelled to do prime at the same time for the combined mode. Possibly even changing the way they combine

    Being able to flip jetfire's engines over, and fold away the nose would be a good start...

    It's a standard GoBot, so about three inches, I think. Probably about the size of G1 Powerglide. Anywho, Snoop is the reason I don't think much of ROTF Jetfire.
