    Man, I'm definitely getting that Jetfire. One of the few figures I'm so absolutely sure about. Can't wait for the AE pre-oders to open and then to sadly wait for months until I get it.


    I see your point, but I don't entirely agree. It's definitely true that a CHUG collector would indeed, as you say, not get Fans Toys Phoenix, because that's MP. But so was Kronos. A 3rd party CHUG Jetfire would be X2 Skycrusher.

    However, the proper size for a Chug Jetfire compared to the (smaller) Siege leaders like Ultra Magnus, would be somewhere around the size of the previous leader Jetfire. Siege Jetfire is way too big for a CHUG scale collection.

    I think, and I know I'm not alone in this, that this Siege Jetfire is like CW/UW Devastor before, a figure that's sort of meant as an MP. Not a true one (slightly too small and not accurate enough), but along the lines of Hasbro/TT saying: look, we are never going to release a MP Skyfire (too big, too expensive and not important enough), so we're releasing a CHUG version that's big enough to fit with MP's. (We even know Hasui used design ideas he had for a proposed MP Devastator to make UW Devastator.)

    And in that scenario, a comparison to FT Phoenix is imo justified.

    You saying something is wrong with jetfire but refusing to say in literally every thread on the subject what is basically the same as you starting something.

    While I agree that siege jetfire is a bit too big, the old leader was too small, even in siege scale. X2toys skycrusher is actually more appropriately sized and he was about more than a head taller than the old leader. Optimus should come up to just above his waist

    Looks like SIEGE Jetfire has a spring loaded trap door beneath the red booster......maybe that's where the deluxes store in jet mode and can drop down from.

    Do you have those TR figures? Look at the ramp connections on each, TR is 2 to 2, Omega is 1 to 2, they dont line up, an adapter would be easy enough to make but stock from what is seen, that 1 ramp isnt compatible with TR

    I looked closer, there's another hinge horizontally and part of the wing(white piece) folds 180 for robot mode. It'll be cool if that piece can act as a wing flap in jet mode.

    well they actually don't seem to be used for much of anything in robot mode, so yeah, looks like they added wing flaps.... [​IMG]

    I might have bit on that jetfire for $40 to $50, but $80 makes this an easy pass

    to me the little ramps basically look like an after thought. outside of being wrapped around the upper thighs. i dont see anything else they could do.

    For those that bitched about jetfire being labeled a Decepticon jet in the article (iron Magnus among them I think), wonder fest reveals that the unarmored jetfire likely has a faction swap gimmick since this image shows him with a con logo

    Looks like the back of the Skyfire headsculpt is the Jetfire headsculpt.

    You can see Skyfires Crest in the back of the Jetfire head. & vice versa. The Jetfire head is a wider crest strait across the entire top backside. You can also see the sides of the helmet where it bows out near Skyfires lower chin on the side view of the Jetfire head.

    Speculation but I doht think its a actual helmet this time.

    tbh that picture makes me look at Starscream so much more, that robot mode superb. And I think they will look good together. I'm not so interested in seeing Jetfire with OP. Seeing him with Starscream to me is more interesting, as they are old friends from Cybertron.

    They flip around to make the wings thinner in robot mode (you can see they sit closer to the red line in robot mode) but I reckon they can be used as flaps in vehicle mode.
