    I might have to break down and get myself a Jetfire. I’m just having a hard time with the thought of dropping $50 on him.

    What???
    Oh man. I’d be totally out at $80. That’s just crazy.

    The hype is real, he's worth it.

    Found him at the Monona walmart. Shocked to see him there.

    So is he like Masterpiece quality? He better be to justify that $80 price tag. I just assumed he was a Leader Class figure.

    Some would say yes. Personally, I feel he isn't, but that's not points against him. The many features he has, happy little extras, and sheer size (combiner size) makes the price tag worth it. Also, if want to see all this, check out the review from emgo. He's my personal favorite reviewer.

    He really is
    I just got him a couple days ago and he really is amazing, he looks big and doesn't feel hollow either. His interactivity with titan masters and other siege figs riding his jet mode is really cool to see in person aswell!

    More on par with old school Leaders. Maybe a little bigger than ROTF and Animated Leaders. His legs still Combiner-Wars open, but he does look really nice.

    2 jet fire at Madison east Walmart. I really want him but $80 for a retail figure is just too much.

    Greetings Wisconsin peoples! I'm traveling for business this week and am in Green Bay until Friday.
    Anywhere close by worth checking out? I was thinking of looking at the huge mall that's about 30-minutes or so away.

    (Incidentally, this Hagemeister restaurant is pretty sweet)

    If you mean the Fox River Mall, don't bother. Aside from the Target, there's nothing of note there. There is a Walmart "across the street". You might want to check out Replay Toys on Wisconsin Avenue in Appleton.

    I think power house comics, or is it powers comics in green bay? I forget which has which between them and Appleton. But the one in green bay is great, for some random bots or general geekiness. Also, tell me about this Replay Toys please.

    Masterpieces that are as big as this Jetfire cost 3-4x as much as he does.

    I was there Saturday. The Walmart had Jetfire and the isle set up for Shockwave and the rest of the refresh. I didn't see much else TF. They had all the new Marvel 2packs.

    Thanks. I had no idea a store like that was in Appleton. Far as I know, nothing like that here in the Wausau area.
