    Dare I say the Jetfire Leader looks even worse than the 2009 version in terms of undercarriage. I still don't get why they didn't just leave out the combination feature, especially when the designers admitted it was a mistake on the previous figure.

    Why can't we get pictures of Jetfire's back or undercarriage?

    Finally, a Jetfire video review. The undercarriage and back are not that bad at all. They do a pretty good job of hiding the faux cockpit, but the fact that there's still one bothers me to no end...

    either the person did not realy transform it that well,or the jet mode is very hard to peg together around the engines.

    note that the engine parts keeps getting knocked loose.

    hope it's not like blackout where the altmode is a nightmare to peg in.

    Kevin Liu has a non-English review of SS Jetfire:



    Apparently Jetfire comes with an abdomen piece for SS-32 Optimus for the combination.

    (Speaking of which, is it me or are YouTubers actively ignoring the combination? Or did they have to sign a NDA saying they CAN'T show the combination? It's kinda getting annoying that no one's doing the combination yet...)

    It probably depends on whether the reviewers got the figures through honorable means. I highly doubt many have actual instruction sheets to go by.

    Well, Kevin Liu had instruction sheets. Heck, one side had instructions for the combination and everything.

    I assume they’re saving it for a separate video to milk views lol

    At least these guys aren’t like the ones in the past with shitty cameras who take 40 minutes to transform a figure

    I have to say I'm impressed and for someone who never bought the original figure this actually looks good I'm sold.

    I can overlook the a lot of the small things I notuced,

    Yes, but I wonder if you can use Jetfire's cane and add to his existing gun for some extra bulk.

    The combination looks decent enough, but the original one was more solid, so that's what I'm sticking with.
    Not that I ever combined them more than once since I loathe the idea of Optimus wearing a corpse.
