    They're really cutting back on paint apps these days, huh. And I never liked that cheap grey plastic Hasbro use.

    The back view looks pretty bad compared to on that robot replicas version. But the front looks alright to me. It's far from screen accurate, but I can live with it.

    I probably won't buy this unless a premium version is sold. I want him because he combines with Prime, but the face looks nothing like his CG model. It looks almost completely unpainted too. Plus he looks like Supershellformer.

    Sad...because Prime is at the top of my want list along with the newly confirmed Leader SS, and the HA line. I dunno, there is a lot of figures from this line that I am completely in love with, and then some I look at and say....WTF?? I thought the last movie was bad, but now we're getting a voyager figure that can barely stand itself up, and three deluxes that (so far as we know) can't stand without in robot mode without a stand.
    I really hope the Arcee 'bots combine, and have a Bi-ped combined form, because that will be awesome. I've grown to like the designs, but I just can't get over my figures not being able to stand without something holding them up.

    Anyways, I'm gonna end my rant now, sorry to get kind of off-topic. These pictures of Jetfire just got me to thinking about the line as a whole. lol.

    Jetfire is iffy, but I'm really glad to here about the Leader SS. I guess I won't be picking up the Voyager on the 30th though, although I still think it looks awesome...so maybe...

    Ugh.....that thing is not Jetfire. I hate to see his good name besmirched like that.

    I'll buy him just to have a combined form of Prime and Jetfire.

    I love this Jetfire and would have him right now if it weren't for Hasbro and their damn
    release date,GET WITH THE PROGRAM HASBLO. But as for the news that Screamer is the
    4th Leader I say eh!,they could've given that spot for Blackout,and judging by actual size
    of the movie characters Blackout is way bigger than Starscream is,so they choose to make
    them the complete opposite,not to mention Jetfire and him.Come on Hasbro!!!.Later all.

    Sounds more like rumour than confirmation on the leader Starscream front.

    That being said, I hope it's true because I'm not digging this Leader Jetfire AT ALL.

    i like this figure ill buy him not alot of detail as shown in the film but i like this figure would be pure if they added tehh sound file wrechead my arse with the figure insteaed transforming sound effects instead i be buying alot of battiers just to hear the toy say that.

    leader starscream sound kinda like a rumor but i would like to see pictures of the figure first before the voyager version hits store shelves to see which one looks better but i find it hard to belive leader starscream

    :(  I was hoping it was Blackout. I think I'll be good w/the Voyager Starscream unless the leader is really amazing.

    looks pretty cool I'll be picking him up though it does look like Jetfire suffered .because the toy needs to combine with prime, though I am very interested in leader starscream, being he's one of my favorites from the movieverse

    Converts from shell-former to shelf warmer and back? @[email protected] In an asst with Megs, Prime and Starscream, I have a feeling Jetfire will be the easy one to find.

    Wouldn't the leader class figure be Soundwave? After all, all we have so far is the preview figure.

    Leaving him as deluxe makes no sense. PLus Prime got a preview figure and a leader figure last time.
