Fans Want It FWI-3 ROTF Leader Optimus Prime Jet(fire)pack

A poster at has revealed the next accessory set from third party group Fans Want It. We have hardly any details at this point, but the silhouette suggests a fairly massive backpack for Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime, resembling the wings and thrusters formed from movie Jetfire.

Interesting. I have yet to get these guys' stuff but if it looks as anywhere near as good as the Starscream and Ironhide set, it might be worth checking out.

It's about time's taking me forever (laziness) to customize my own.

Ohhh, this could be cool. I hope they go all out on this: New weapons, 'boots', chest piece...Maybe slightly bigger turbines too. Would be expensive, but also a must for a lot of people, I'd reckon. Don't let us down FNW!

Interesting, but what is this supposed to accomplish that combining with ROTF leader Jetfire doesn't do?

Interesting but odd choice. What does this do that combining with Leader Jetfire doesn't already accomplish.

I'd rather they gave us a full-size trailer to go with the Leader Prime mold, complete with ringed arsenal array when you open it up to store all his gear (battle blades, shield, axe, buster cannon, mechtech guns, etc.). But that's probably a really tall (and expensive) order.

Still, I may pick this up depending on how it turns out. I bought their first two sets for Starscream and Ironhide and those are fantastic.

Nice... At least we can now have a posable version... The ROTF link-up version limits the leg movement. I do hope the come up with the lower limb attachments as well.

Interested in this for sure!

Was impressed by their Ironhide cannons, have the Starscream set on the way, and will probably get this one too. I had also gotten a whole extra Leader Prime just to install the poseable hands and reprolabels to, so now he'll get a jetpack too!

An admirable effort, but unless the upgrade is bigger than the figure itself it's not gonna be accurate or visually appeaing, and that picture tells me it won't. But still, at least somebody's trying something new.
