Just keep in mind that you're really buying it for the art alone.

The scripting is absolutely TERRIBLE, and horribly, horribly outdated. It makes the visuals and the dialogue seem at odds with each other.

All IMO of course, but yeah, even IDW's admitted this was a mistake.

Jetfire's a great figure, one that I think often gets overlooked.

It was also an utter bitch to find when it first came out, then a few years later Myer suddenly had HEAPS of them for some odd reason.

Well Griffin once said we are the dumping ground for the unwanted...maybe this is one of those rare lucky times when the unwanted turns out to be a hidden gem.

We are indeed a dumping ground, and I know many people scored well, who'd missed out on him first time around.

We're a dumping ground that often gets dumped with gold.

Nah, it's not - Tech Specs rankings have always been all over the place. In 1985, Jetfire was Rank 10 as well. In the first year of G2, Rapido and Grimlock (both Rank 10) outranked Optimus Prime (9). In the animated universe, the rank of Magnus is higher than Prime.

Yeah thats the only fear. I don't wanna buy a 3rd party product that they are going to release in the future. But you never know.

if so and cash is tight perhaps then choose the insecticons. though there is nothing to say that HasTak won't be releasing a set of insecticons in the coming years as a part of the Classics/universe etc line.

Cheers for the tip Cat, it is indeed a good thing that I'm a sucker for Transformers/Robotic Artwork!

Totally understand that . Out of all my TF's this one seems to evoke the G1 goodness with a bit more flexability.

Never had a original Jetfore/Skyfire but he just feels "right" to me.
