    What are your top 10 Jetformers that have the less kibble in jet form and are more jet-accurate (even as a fictional ship)?

    Here's mine:

    1. Gen. Scourge
    2. Cyb. Powerglide
    3. RotF Mindwipe
    4. Rotf Breakaway
    5. Rotf Divebomb
    6. HftD Terradive
    7. Uni. Powerglide
    8. G1 SkyLinx (top)
    9. Cyb. Skywarp
    10. G2 cyberjets

    Agree/disagree?

    I have a feeling that Prime Starscream should be here.

    Don't have a top ten, but BM Jetstorm, especially the deluxe did a GREAT job, and of course the original Jetfire bot deserve a mention.

    Once you go black...


    I'd also give RTS Cyclonus & Generations Thrust some honourable mentions, but I can imagine there being a lot of different favorites for people.

    Leader Starscream has quite a bit under kibble (Excellent figure though). I nominate Rotf Skystalker and Stratosphere.

    Another vote for G1 Jetfire (don't have a top 10).

    While I really, really love Terradive, in my opinion his legs aren't exactly hidden in altmode. He's still easily one of the top jetformers however.

    No top jetformer list is complete without Classics Voyager Jetfire. HFTD Leader Starscream is on my list as well. Also, ROTF Divebomb technically isn't a jet.

    Arranged roughly by release:
    G1 Starscream: Picked up the Encore and I just like it because of nostalgia (friend had one, I always wanted one)
    G2 Hooligan: I like the deco and the swing-wing altmode is fun. Damn posable too.
    Machine Wars Megaplex: Good deco, fun mold, I love his gun.
    Cybertron Legends Starscream (Specifically Sunstorm): Really awesome mold, with a lot of detail and keeps a shocking number of features from the Voyager mold.
    Classics Jetfire: Fun gimmicks with the armor, and I like the jet mode.
    Masterpiece Starscream: No explanation necessary.
    RtS Lugnut: LOVE the alt-mode and the deco, full of gimmicks, and posable. Just FUN.
    RotF Ransack: Mostly for the fun alt-mode. Not a jet, but then again neither is Sky-Lynx so... yeah.
    Generations Thundercracker: I love the shade of blue, and the Classics seeker mold is very solid
    DotM Thundercracker: A lovely shade of blue, awesome weapons, and great articulation. Starscream's color scheme is too dull, but TC's is perfect for the mold.
    DotM Hatchet: Love the quadruped robot mode, with a great deco and lots of little features that make it feel like they were going above and beyond (drone guns were already cool, but combining? And the extra pegs in his hands for guns was entirely unnecessary, but opens up some fun possibilities).

    I think DotM Space Case would be on the list, if I actually believed he existed.

    Keep in mind, this is just the ones I like the most, and not an objective measure (my inclusion of G1 Starscream should make that obvious enough)



    Dishonorable mentions (AKA my most hated Jetformers):
    Cybertron Soundwave: The robot mode is a mess, with massive back kibble, cartoonish fists, and just terrible, terrible legs.
    Movie Dreadwind/Overcast/Fearswoop: Ugh. I was angry that THIS was the figure to be a Hooligan homage. The jet mode is beautiful. Which makes the robot mode even more disappointing. The grossly oversized forearms, lack of hands, tiny legs with odd articulation... I don't care for the lenshead but it's sadly one of the best features of the figure.
    Universe Powerglide: I hate his proportions and his alt-mode is really messy.
    RotF Breakaway/Thrust: Mediocre articulation and a cool jet mode, but an ugly, kibble-laden robot mode

    Big fan of Generations Thundercracker myself.

    As for Space Case, I found one on the weekend that I'm willing to sell/trade.
