    would you be interested to see a Masterpiece Jetfire based on the toon?

    yes or no...if yer on the fence, then tough luck, no choice for you...

    he's one of my fave TF designs, and i'd LOVE to see Has/Tak bring him to life....

    If they make it look exactly like the toon, sure. I'm picky that way.

    Jetfire, Soundwave, Shockwave, and Galvatron would all translate well in this line.

    Was watching the movie last night and I gotta say I was amazed, AMAZED, at how well MP Roddy came out. Yeah, he's a nightmare QC wise, but aesthetically the designer worked a freaking miracle IMHO.

    As for Jetfire, I love him but his design isn't terribly "transformers" IMHO. But I'd still rplly love him anyway, lol.

    If it's cartoon accurate, not toy accurate, I'll be all over it. To be honest, I'd buy it anyways.

    THis. Also don't over complicate it just the sake of it being a masterpiece figure.

    I'd be 100% in if it was 'toon accurate. Have always wanted a toon accurate Skyfire/Jetfire.

    Definitely! Wouldn't he be Masterpiece Skyfire though? ;-) Actually Classics Jetfire was pretty good, I'd even settle for an oversized version of that figure.

    One other thing - Make him a decent size. MP-01 or bigger. None of this new-wave MP's that all stand equal height nonsense!

    You couldn't be more correct, sometimes simplicity is genius in it's own right, take a look at MP Grimlock! Addressing the question, HELL YEAH, if it's 100% G1 toon accurate, of course! Although, I'm wishing we get Galvatron since we haven't had a toy that has done his G1 animated counterpart any real justice, IMO!

    Hell yes.

    The only problem is the whole Macross/Bandai copyright infringment crap.

    ^ Not really I guess, since the cartoon model looks quite different from the VF's imo.

    However, I think there's a problem inherent to the cartoon model...because I don't think it went into exact detail about its transformation and exact design specs ( exact shape proportions, how parts fold in etc. )

    Personally, I find the Universe mold waaaay too stubby for his character and there are a whole lot of other things about it, which don't do cartoon Jetfire justice.

    Even many Radicon customs have a hard time getting it 'right'. Especially, Jetfire's spherical shoulders might be a problem - although recent FP's Thundershred's shoulders are very reminiscent of cartoon Jetfire's shoulders imo.

    The jetmode is of course, a purely fantasy jet.. but I think a Masterpiece version would have to be executed in such a way that it evokes realism.

    So, yeah..I'd say yes... but it would be quite an engineering & design challenge.
