    No double swords though? Lame.

    Sure, but one would think this sort of stuff would be packed in two (and cheaper than buy them individually).

    Looks Awesome!!!

    ...... Anyone willing to make some black gun/antenna for him too?
    ...maybe some reeeeally big red boosters, while we're at it?
    That's my wish list, anyway.

    Not too many upgrade sets out there for Jetfire. Someone in the customs section was working on some of the stuff you're asking about.

    The best I've seen prior to this listing is the Matrix Workshop ears (the rare MW kit that actually fits and works out of the box without mods). Actually looks pretty good and that big connecting bar really does 'disappear' when applied thanks to the backpack. Someone even figured out how to store in alt mode.
    Matrix Workshop M17 M-17 Antennas for Siege Jetfire Upgrade Kit

    The prior SL kit for Jetfire, is, um, uh...
    Shockwave Lab SL-56 SL56 Combine Kits for WFC Siege Jetfire and Optimus Prime Upgrade Kit.

    For SL kits in general:
    Shockwave Lab

    GX Studio

    Ignore the ZXB listing, which is not the same quality (although the 2nd best I've seen so far, just a step below GX).

    That’s pretty cool!

    I don’t have this guy, but I WILL now be hoping that someone makes a similar accessory for Iron Factory’s Cygnus...

    I'll get mine hopefully in a few days as it just cleared customs. Ordered 2 for dual wielding. Although there was no way for SL to tell before the series came out that his sword is actually purple in the show, maybe they'll be good guy blue in the next series. SL based the kit off the poster / promo art.

    It's purple? Always looked blue on my TV. What scene does it look purple in?

    Um, all of them. The blade itself is a bluish purple. Different than the promo art. His thrusters are reddish purple like the other Decepticon jets.

    Some screenshots as well as comparison shot of a truer blue in the same scene.

    Weird. That's not at all what I saw on my TV set. Wonder if it's going bad on me?

    May need to calibrate TV then. Default settings tend to be way off and people's homes are not showrooms for various TV models.

    Those are direct screen captures from Netflix in web browser with no color editing. Computer monitors, although still needing calibration, tend to be more accurate than TVs.

    I change my tv color settings for just about anything I watch so maybe it just looked better to me that way and the blue sword was a coincidence:lol
