    Reminds me of the disappointment when MegaSteel made Blaster and got the colours wrong.

    Heads are tricky... Takara usually gets it right.

    Going to give this figure a chance. I want to test Godbomber's Titan Master on him and hope either Renderform or Dr. Wu or anyone else fixes him in the future.

    I would love a Jetfire that is taller than MP10 but smaller than Phoenix (who is just too damn big for my tastes).

    I will wait until some reviewers have this guy in hand before I commit. BTW, I really hate headmaster/ targetmasters of older characters. Hopefully, the headmastrer gimmick can be swapped out with a permanent head (one that doesn't look so silly as the one in the pics).

    I'm just wondering how long it'll take before someone replaces that bulky helmet with T30 Jetfire's head :ev:

    So much good but that head ruins everything. I hoped they would have listened to early prototype feedback but they obviously didn't.

    Help us Renderform your our only hope.

    Venksta if you commit to wanted to make a head for this guy I would seriously buy it and send you my figure if you didn't want to buy one for test fitting etc.

    Fucing diecast on top of the head. But it is a lot cheaper than Phoenix. I'll wait for reviews.

    Not too crazy about that face or the Popeye forearms. The rest is okay, though. Not sure I'd spring for this version unless it was an out-of-this-world deal.

    Apparently the eyes light up when you insert the headmaster? That's interesting I guess. I wonder how that could affect someone makinng a replacement (better) face.

    Is the face finalized? Because the pics make it look like it has a blank slate.

    - Articulation looks good
    - Sculpt style is meh-decent-ish to me
    - Jetmode is yuck! With those arms just hanging out there at the sides of the fuselage

    Compared to FT Phoenix, this is a disappointment. Sure the robot mode has articulation and the paint job looks OK. But the jet mode does not do Jetfire/Skyfire any justice. It lacks the clean lines and overall look of Phoenix. I also agree with the previous post on how the jet mode looks like a BSG Colonial Viper.
