    Combining? He's just gonna be prime's new back kibble yeah. I don't think we'll agree about what a combiner is.

    I will never call awesome a badly painted bot that has a plane stuck on his back and barely any transformation.

    As much as I appreciate the hard work put into creating this toy, and the obvious sacrifices they had to make to have him have electronics and combine, that doesn't magically make him awesome. If future pictures (or seeing him in real life) do him more justice then I'll stop doubting right away, but so far this toy has done nothing for me but look disappointing.

    You goddamn know I want him to be awesome! :(

    Wow, so much hate for this toy. Nobody wants this? At all?

    Fine by me. Just makes hunting for him easier. :D

    You know TF fans are the most pessimistic people out there. Chance is 90% of people bitching now will end up buying him in the end. :lol  So far he doesn't live up to my expectations, though.

    It doesn't make him awesome, but it makes him pretty good in my eyes.

    It's not like he's like Leader Megatron or Ultimate Bumblebee or Supreme TFA OPtimus who ended up being lackluster due to bad work, Jetfire does alot more than other toys in the past even with all the things going against him.

    Not so sure. For the same price you have leader prime, and there's absolutely no competition between the two. Prime is pure awesomeness, jetfire pure nothing.

    I can't see myself spending 40 bucks in a poorly engineered bot. Not in 2009.

    Personally I think I'll wait until I actually see some decent pictures of him in both modes before I make a decision. A radical decision, I know, but there you go.

    For what its worth I want him. But odds are that the day after I buy him they'll announce a premium edition repaint of him that more or less fixes my problems with his color scheme. And then I'll have 2.

    Which is why we REALLY need to press Hasbro to know if they'll release premium toys at Botcon or SDCC.

    The more I look at the figure, the more I think he could vastly benefit from a Premium paint job. Which is why I'm going to wait for the inevitable Premium repaint. Just did a quick digibash of what I think his color scheme should look like, imo. Makes the mold look much better, and it helps his body and backpack blend with each other a lot better, imo. Part of me feels a little bad hoping for a Premium repaint, but at the same time I think it's inevitable. They have confirmed that they're going to do some Premium versions. Jetfire here needs it badly. I just hope Hasbro agrees and chooses Jetfire to Premium-ize.

    That picture pretty much proves he'd look a LOT better with a more cohesive paintjob.

    Very excited about the news of a Leader Class Starscream; made my day in fact! Hopefully we'll get an official confirmation from Hasbro soon!

    He really doesn't look to bad once he's standing up. Pretty decent actually IMO.

    HELL TO THE YES, LEADER STARSCREAM!!!!!

    I have wanted this more than any other TF movie bot, and I never thought that it would actually come.

    Now all I need is a Leader Blackout and Leader (or at least Voyager) Bonecrusher

    well, the Combination is quite nice, but the Alt-Mode is quite lame, reminds me of Movie1-Starscream, and the Legend-Class if this Figure, having most Robot-Parts under the Alt-Modes Main-Body.

    Seriously, that's quite a down, compared how sweet Prime's Modes works, even in the Movie1-Leader-Class-Version.
