Official images of Leader class Jetfire takeoff online

After first being leaked back in February on eBay and then officially debuting at Toy Fair 2014, we’re now getting our first official images from Hasbro of Transformers Generations Leader class Jetfire. The Autobot scientist has long been a fan favorite, but this particular figure has gotten a mixed reaction from many fans. This is caused by Hasbro’s decision to model the figure on the original Jetfire figure as well as his cartoon counterpart, Skyfire. Problem is neither version of the character look remotely alike and have different appeal. 

Fans really want a dedicated remake of the original Jetfire figure (a slightly modified Macross Valkyrie) using modern technology in the same way they did their new versions of Whirl and Roadbuster, figures originally repurposed from old Japanese Dorvack figures. Hasbro gave us this with the jet mode, but not with the bot mode, though he does have a mask he can wear that’s a little more original toy-like. On the flip side, we’ve never gotten a proper Skyfire figure that looked like the cartoon design. We did get something close in Transformers Classics Jetfire, but in reality that figure was based 100% on his appearance in the Transformers: Stormbringer comic series (the Japanese version was in cartoon colors and named Skyfire, though). The new figure has a bot mode similar to the cartoon version, but has that pesky G1 toy jet mode rather than his iconic squared off cybertronian jet mode. 

It’s still very much a figure worth owning even if it does suffer from an identity crisis. With his construction he could easily be remolded later to be more accurate in either direction. And let’s face it, we don’t get a lot of big Transformers jets like this, I think the last non-Masterpiece was Leader movie Starscream from 2010. He’s definitely on my buy list for when he’s released later this later.
