    Yeah. This guy looks amazing. I don't get why there is animosity towards non-transforming figures. They allow for the accuracy of a CG model to be displayed in real plastic and diecast and there is room for both in the market. This one is an easy buy for me.

    The leg compromise is not an issue for me at all and the helmet inaccuracy is something I can learn to deal with... Now if only someone will do a decent, MPM sized, transformable version of this guy, (as the SS version and the upscaled KO version were somewhat lacking for me), that would be greatly appreciated!!

    I did a net search and not entirely sure if the info is accurate, but if Jetfire from the film is based on the SR 71, perhaps this is why Threezero went back and redid the design? This iteration would be more accurate if his alt mode was an SR 71. The more domed forehead from the film doesn't seem to fit.

    This thing is spectacular. If I wasn't all in on Flame Toys, I'd definitely consider this

    Sooooooo...... Who hopes that ThreeZero gives us an alternate more accurate head piece to swap out? The promotional images do say, Still in development, final product may vary.

    It won't be the first time that ThreeZero improves something before they release it.

    I'm wondering if they will make Optimus DOTM DLX, it's my favourite design so far. (Those ABS... mmm....). :lol 

    I'm starting to think if I have to sell BA Prime...

    Guys, if you just stop replying to him maybe he'll finally go away. I'm trying really hard to ignore him but this pointless discussion is polluting the thread more than it should. He clearly doesn't get the point so just report/ignore him and move on.

    I really hope that's the case because it looks like they ought to improve a bit more than just Jetfire's cap after all:

    Comparison between the Prime1 statue (which, as we know, is basically a perfect physical copy of the CGI model) and the Threezero figure.

    It's actually makes it even more impressive that it's only those 3 minor things wrong on Threezero's combined mode. Prime 1 is just printing a statue with the movie's 3D file. Kind of crazy that Threezero's Jetfire Prime mode is two fully articulated figures combined. None of those things circled in the photo bother me in the combine form to be honest. They're really minor things.

    I'm more disappointed that Jetfire has such a bad looking thigh piece and that his head piece doesn't come with an accurate one. I think I'm only gonna pick up Jetfire if I plan on solely using him in Jetfire Prime mode. That thigh piece sticking out in his robot mode is pretty bad.

    I agree with everything you said and honestly I was surprised as well to see those were the only inaccuracies on the combined figure but the less realistic part of me was hoping at least one of the figures would be completely spot-on considering the compromises made to the other 2, you know. Like I said, in terms of engineering that went into making this thing possible, Threezero deserves all the credit they can get. It's truly impressive indeed.

    Oh man, now we can't say we. We aren't the collectors. We're separate individuals, not a forum of collectors... I'm out of this crap, fellas. :lol 

    This dude changes all the arguments at their own likes, it's funny. He thinks that everyone is "attacking" him by his opinion. He's totally wrong.

    Conspiranoia.

    As much I\'d love to have this guy, I\'ll stick with my SS-figure because I want to keep my legs and my kidneys.
