    If we got Thundercracker and Skywarp first, no one would buy Acid Storm. Now they are hoping to force us to buy Acid Storm in the hopes of Thundercracker and Skywarp getting a release. That is why I'm not going to buy Acid Storm.

    I have always been fond of Acid Storm. I think he and Sunstorm look awesome displayed together as the counterpart to the other (storm/sun, takara/hasbro, yellow/green....ok maybe not so much that last one). I still want a Legends Thundercracker and Skywarp like pretty much everyone else, but I'll also get that Acid Storm as well.

    I heard on a podcast that someone managed to somehow get a picture of Jetfire next to RotF Leader Prime. Can anyone direct me to that picture?

    Both Roadbuster and Sky-byte are hands down mine.

    Just something I like to point out in regards to Jetfire's "fake" canopy in jet mode. It seems Hasbro wasn't to off the mark with it in regards to real jets.

    I'm not bothered by Jetfire's "fake" canopy too much. I just wish they'd gone all the way toward giving us a show-accurate "Skyfire" in both modes. I don't really care about the old-style Jetfire jet mode. We've never gotten a Skyfire-style jet, and when we get such a nice homage here in robot mode... they only go half-way? That's just weird.

    I've seen this sentiment several times, and I suppose I can understand it for huge fans of the show character, but do you remember how ugly, boxlike and ungainly the Skyfire jet mode was? Compared to the sleek, deadly and faster than hell looking Jetfire toy jet it was just a cargo transport.

    Frankly, they did it right with this one. Can't wait to see Megatron.

    Quite bluntly, no. That's not how I remember Skyfire at all. I thought, and still think, it was an extremely cool form.

    You're welcome to your opinion about what makes a better jet, but to insist that I should remember the other form as "ugly" et al... no, you're just wrong. I have my own memories and opinion about all that, and that's not the way to convince me I'm wrong.

    That's an extremely defensive response for a harmless comment.

    I enjoy both alt modes for Jetfire and Skyfire. It is a tough choice, as the Skyfire alt mode which struck me as some strange double decker jet-shuttle research vessel has never been done in toy form before. However the Jetfire VF-1S mode is very iconic and a great looking figure.

    One thing that made me curious is that the top deck of Skyfire looks as if it could separate and act as a science drone of some sort. Since the super booster/cannon backpack separates I sort of envisioned Skyfire at some point swapping between the more military grade backpack and the more research grade backpack. While not perfect, a third party add on that clips on the same way as the toy backpack might be an interesting compromise.

    Sorry, but does anyone know when approximately Windblade is coming out?

    I am so excited about this one, want to repaint one of them into a Dino scheme, and I think she looks perfect for this (will keep one with standard colors too, maybe just add some detailing). Looking forward to the other fembots too from Hasbro, hope they make it out in 2014 and not get delayed because of the movie.

    originally sometime this month, but I'm betting April online and May in brick and mortar with the movie figures.

    I prefer it this way myself, Though I can see why some prefer the toy go full cartoon. Cartoon Jetfire looks too much like a flying packing box fort for my taste.
