    I wish the vehicle mode looked nicer from the side and bottom, at the high pricetag I think I'll have to pass unless I see it on a great sale/clearance price. This looks like it will satisfy Skyfire fans, but for me, I'm a little more Jetfire-oriented, and luckily I have that last release to keep me happy.

    It's stated that he's 11 inches, but he looks closer to 12 inches to me. I think he's gonna too big for a lot of people. But the plus side is you'll have a sizable jet (compared to the cars).

    Agreed, he looks to be twice the size of Siege Starscream. Great for me, since I didn't want to pay over $200 for Fanstoys Phoenix and think he's too big for my MP collection anyway. In the comics, Prime came up to his chest (about 75% Jetfire's height) so this works great for my purposes.

    Springer looks great. I think he's different enough from Thrilling 30 Springer to justify having them both.

    The rest of them I'm not too interested in. Jetfire looks cool, but he's way too big and expensive for me.

    That's how I feel. I get that some G1 episodes show him as being super tall but I don't want a Jetfire that's almost par with all my CW Combiners. Leader class height is good enough.

    Now if they make a quality Thunderwing out of the same mold, then I'm all for it. T30's version will still remain my Jetfire and all the other Wave 3 Dlx's and Voyagers are buy on sight's

    But Fruiticus is a package deal. you don't just get one awful toy, you get five of them! technically 6 if you count the combined mode as its own figure!
    its a steal really.

    Skyfire is definitely a must buy for me. My only nitpicky with him is the stupid light pipe/dead eye looks when not enough light enter his head. If this was any other character beside G1 Skyfire/UM, this would've been easily pass just for having dead eyes or light pipe feature.

    No.... I give him more respect than Chromia. I just wouldn't buy 3 of'em for $60. In fact I'm purposefully waiting till it pops up at Target so I can use a $5 off coupon on it since I only paid $10 for Chromia and less a few other DLX Siege figures that were better courtesy of Pulse.

    Overall he's a 6.5/10. Which is higher than I give that PotP Grimlock, Starscream or Rodimus Prime.

    I'm definitely picking up Springer and Jetfire. They both look great.

    I remember that being revealed in an issue of Game Informer back in the day. There was so much hype, but the figures just didn't do well.

    Prime Airachnid was another stinker. Peaugh even got all Thew on it.

    That's fair...I like the battle damage myself...but I'll concede that's not a terrible idea.

    Mine was to have parts that come off to reveal injuries.

    I agree. Leave Fruiticus alone. He was trying. Although, I got pissed at him too and upgraded him myself. Got rid of deluxe Onslaught and introduced the lonely Universe Ultra Class version of him. 20150927_085907.jpg

    And it has landing gear :D  Ok bad joke. But seriously, this Jetfire and Springer...man, they look real good. Springer looks practically like he came out of the G1 cartoon (with some differences), and Jetfire looks real good, what with that chest emblem you can just swivel around to change :D  Sooo tempted even though I don't really collect the Siege line.
