    Can\'t wait to see how he looks with Titans Return Apeface for his head.

    There is a photo floating around on the boards of him with the Siege, TR and Legends headmasters being showcased

    To all the haters - I have absolutely no problem with this color of off-white. I laugh at your insane hatred that prevents you from buying this figure (I have seen multiple people say this) just because of a color. Ridiculous. :D 
    I do dislike though how the shield is painted a different color of red than the wings. Why could it not have been molded from the same piece as those?
    Love all modes. Hurray for ball jointed gorilla head! And super long arms. I love how the gorilla teeth kinda work as WWII \"teeth paint\" style on the plane\'s nosecone.

    The headmaster having the face on the legs is so odd to me. At least when the faces were backpacks they were upside-down.

    I think I'll pass on this figure, the aesthetic doesn't feel coherent, partly from the milky white plastic, partly from the sculpting, but a lot from the design. For example, the vehicle mode seems like just a brick with junk added on, a total afterthought. The ape mode seems like a lot of compromises as well. For me, it's a no, but I hope the folks that get it enjoy it.

    I'll be buying it, but it doesn't change the fact that this is a horrible color. If only we had the TT superior paint option... fuck brand unification.

    The kibble seems okay in gorilla mode.
    But lord... That weathering.
    I wish he had been released in Earthrise.

    Exactly my thoughts. Maybe it really will look alright in person, I hope so at least.

    WOW!
    What a difference some proper lighting and decent posing makes.
    Totally changed my mind on this figure!
    Thanks for posting.

    Technically he is an Earthrise figure, as Wave 5 is just tacked onto Siege to keep it going into next year without a break.

    I'm not sure what a Takara version would've done differently. This is quite faithful to the G1 color palette.

    I’d have been fine with a gunmetal grey instead of the milky colour they went with, but then again even a solid white like Jetfire would be fine.

    I also like the teeth under the nosecone, it works really well. Actually for what it is I like the entire jet, it may be the weakest mode of the three but it still turned out well.

    Why gunmetal?

    The original toy was an off white/cream color.

    It appears the neck joint is fixed or securely in place than what I've seen in some reviews and I wish the neck piece was in purple, not the off-white cream color.

    I’m aware, I’ve seen one in person lol but it just looks strange to the point I feel like they could have picked any alternative and it would have been a lot more appealing

    Heard.

    I do agree; of all the shades of white, that off color is a very soft and shapeless color. For me however, I'm a purist, and I don't want my source material f'ed with. lol
    With that said, I'm cool with the off white.
