    I got mine from TFSafari, a Chinese outfit. I don't think that we are allowed to post links to sales sites, but you can Google TFSafari. They still have the antennas for Jetfire in stock.

    Well thanks bro for getting back to me on this. I might give them a try down the road cause i really want a few things they have for figures i have.





    Another member DID post a link and i have this company saved and am looking at them right now. They really have some great add-ons i think i want to buy. I really like thd Nightbird add- on's and the ironhide,Jazz.

    Does anyone have tips on disassembling the face? The earpiece where the screw is hiding behind has almost no ledges to grab onto and pull it out with.

    It just pops out. I think only one person here said their copy was glued. It's like a small disc.

    I've seen the pictures from the how-to guide, so I know what it looks like. But the tutorial doesn't have that needed in-between step on tips on how to wedge that piece out. I've tried using a small screwdriver, a thumb tack, etc. It's in there tight. It might even be glued in there. Could I use a blow dryer to heat the glue maybe?

    For me, it just popped out with my fingernail. If it's truly glued in there, then you'll need to force it out. You have to be careful with heat as you could potentially warp the helmet. Too many horror stories with hair driers ruining plastic (not to mention getting hair and whatever human debris is in the hair dryer all over your figures).

    Ignore the custom LED switch I installed in the lightpiping window. The left "ear" is molded detail and part of the helmet. The right "ear" is a cover. If you look carefully, they're not exactly symmetric. The right ear has a larger gap. That's where you would put your fingernail in and pull the piece out. If it's being really stubborn (possibly from glue or maybe the tab is just tight), try a tool that won't mar the plastic, like an orange LEGO separator.

    I like the figure as is. I gave away the armor that came with mine to someone on here.
