    I think Jetfire is absurdly generic in all his G1-inspired incarnations [which includes WFC-Jetfire]: He is, a normal guy, no defining traits at all, just a random scientist who happens to be an atheist [which doesn't even make sense considering the ridiculous amount of magic stuff they meet once every week]

    He is pretty much an atheist G1-Ratchet, he's generic, unremarkable, and uninteresting.

    I'm with Overlord on this one. I found G1 Jetfire dull. I remember his toy advertised before his debut on the cartoon. He looked great.
    I suppose because he sold well, they didn't need any depth to his character.

    Whilst I found ROTF badly put together. There were still some enjoyable scenes. Jetfire was one of them.

    Well, I just don't want him to be a grumpy old bot like on ROTF, that's all. And I respect your opinions.

    I like Jetfire in ROTF, but I would've liked him a lot more if he wasn't an old man. I would have liked him if he was younger and not blathering like a delusional crank half the time. But I did like the fact he turned into a SR-71 Blackbird! Fuck yeah, favorite plane! :rock

    No more then three Constructicons. Also they'll make Wheeljack like the Tigatron of TF Prime.

    I think him being COMPLETELY INSANE was part of his charm in ROTF, he was a proud, loud, over dramatic old man who was a tad bit crazy, it was just fascinating to watch how he would switch from being completely normal [explaining about the Primes] to suddenly raving like a lunatic ["DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF HOW IT IS TO SLOWLY FALL APART AN DIIIEEEE?"], plus Mark Ryan was absolutely brillant.

    Again, I hope that they don't use anyone they don't need to but I think it would be cool to see Shockwave, Tarantulas and Elita One (no connection to OP).

    sence takara has skywarp listed for their figure line i'd vote him plus now that starscreams on his own he might restart the energon seekers against megatron or something like that, as for the other decepticons i wanna see gestalts like bruticus and devastator not just one member on his own *cough*breakdown*cough*

    although i really want thundercracker back in the transformers cartoon scene he hasn't been in a TF show since cybertron/galaxy force, which is rather sad

    I see the following as inevitable based on the aforementioned connection between the FOC and Prime continuities: At least 3 of the Dinobots, similar to how TFA trimmed their ranks for inclusion in that show.

    I see this one as inevitable based on the aforementioned Cyberverse toy already at least in the grey proto stage: Ironhide

    I hope to see: Jazz, Prowl, Barricade, and at least one of the conehead jets.

    I wouldn't count Takara making a black repaint of a figure as anything that indicates a new character unfortunately.
