    I am keeping my jetfire due to the SR-71 being my favorite jet ever.

    That being said I Was bummed when my Jetfire only had LED's in half his body working.. I should take him apart and see if I can fix it.

    He's not that impressive. The jet mode is huge and awesome, but the bot mode is horribly hindered by the huge battery box.

    I was actually thinking of picking up DotM leader 'bee because the box is separate, but I'm still kinda "eh" about the toy. Maybe at the right price...

    Jetfire is a classic case of a Hasbro jet design, where it looks like a robot strapped under a jet. Looks great from the top, though.

    Leader BB has a "no-neck" look, like he took too many steroids.

    Yeah, which is why I'm not crazy about him. I actually saw about 20 of him at Walmart in fair oaks last night, on clearance for $30. If they drop him to $15 (as is usually the case with WM clearances) I'll grab one. But he's not worth anything more than clearance price to me.

    If they'd only made his head bigger, he would have been much better. The head is the same size as the HA BB.

    A month or two ago the Ross in Manassas got what must have been a whole case of him, they had like 8 or 9 on the pegs. I'm pretty sure they're gone now, but I'd say its worth checking Ross/TJX/Marshalls for him (or other HA basics)

    Also, it looks like the Target clearances prices are getting good. I picked up an extra Kup today for $6.48 at the one in Chantilly, they had one left. I've also seen the ark, HA basics, and some of the little kid friendly TFs from DotM (NOT rescue bots) in their clearance aisles.

    Leader Bumblebee would have been better if he was, say... Leader DotM Megatron instead. Or even, say, Leader Ratchet. Or lets go for the longshot- Leader Bonecrusher. All these "ultimate" BBs across the movie lines have been such a collossal waste of plastic that could have been used for characters who deserved better figures... Or in some cases, even a figure at all

    I had a friend give me a leader BB and it's crap, I would rather have jetfire..I've seen him and I like him a lot better than bumble bee esp in jet mode which is just fuckin awesome.. but he's the only main character from the movies I'm missing.

    I just picked up HA Leadfoot from target for $15 it was the last one and the last wreaker from the movie I needed..

    If anyone sees PRID Ratchet or Arcee please post that shit... I haven't seen them anywhere..

    THIS. I thought Ultimate BB was a pretty definitive version and was pretty confused when they decided to do a Leader BB. For two movies they go out of their way to make Leader Megatrons that are weird and cybertronian, and the first chance we get to have a Megatron that turns into a real vehicle, they decide to make a BB instead. Baffling. As for Ratchet, I would have been happy if they'd bothered making a more elegant Voyager mold for him instead of repainting the same damned mold over and over.

    Ka-Ching! This late after your post I didn't think we had a chance but when I saw this I yelled to Backscatter to get dressed and we went over there. We not only found the Arcee & Soundwave but a Rachet as well!

    Thanks so much for the heads-up! :bowdown: :bay

    This again. Whole reason i said even a Leader Ratchet though is because with the release of Leader Ironhide we're only missing one of the first 5 from 2007 to complete a good robot mode in-scale display (along w rotf leader prime, ha jazz and ha bb)
