    This. I actually really like Jetfire's design, and I think it translated well to the toy. Sure, he's a shellformer, but it would've been nigh impossible for him to not have been. The SR-71 is extremely thin.

    That...doesn't look so good. Hopefully the combine mode is better

    Never liked this mold since I first saw the box back waaaaay back. If there is a voyager, then maybe, but only if the color is fixed. Do not want blue grey.

    As for Screamer, I was hoping the Leader would be Blackout :( . This Screamer better be DAMN GOOD to of taken away from the most badass TF I've seen in action :inquisiti

    I don't know why they have both Leader class Optimus AND Leader class Jetfire yet they STILL wont combine them.

    Do they even know they can combine?

    Leader Starscream? Fingers crossed for accuracy and articulation... just this once..

    I'm with the people who want their Leader Blackout tho. That needs to happen.

    leader blackout would have been better than starscream.....cause with leader starscream, skywarp and thundercracker will no longer be in the same proportion to him......

    I'm hoping that when I bag him and pose him correctly he'll look good. Man, these prices are kiling me; I don't really want to spend like £5 extra for a figure with the same quality stuff. Also, what does "this" mean, I read it alot.

    I like the design of the character, but the figure does him absolutely no justice.
    It just looks bad.

    The possibility of a leader Starscream has me stoked! The new voyager looks great, so I cant wait to see what they do with a leader class. I need photos so I can decide between the two!

    Starscream looks ugly, and so does Megatron. This actually looks decent.

    Don't like leader Jetfire at all. I keep hoping new pictures will do him more justice but he's just not doing it for me.

    I'm stoked about leader Starscream, though! I think they can do a just as awesome job with him as with leader Prime..heck, even the voyager one got very close in alt mode, and robot mode was very decent as well. This should be great!

    The more pics I see of this Leader Jetfire, the worse it gets...

    He's really engineered as a block former with jet parts as backpack. Yet again, Leader class = Loser class. :thumbdown

    I'm still amazed that some people consider it "good". I mean, well. That's an awful figure, both alt and bot modes are crappy as hell...

    That's supposed to be a leader class and most deluxe figures look better.

    Like Darkwind, and Silverbolt? Yeah, those are pretty awful figures. They need to make the figures more like the deluxe Starscream mold, or even the Masterpiece. It actually looks like a robot, and jet then a robot with a jet on the back.

    He looks awesome in both modes if you consider that he had to suffer due to combining, having electronics and being ONE OF THE MOST THIN JETS IN HISTORY.

    Plus you didn't EVEN SEE he posed yet, so far all we have are pics of him terribly distorted inside a box with his panels all over the place.

    His bot mode uses very little of his Jet parts.

    This is one toy I can see them redoing if survives to part 3.
