I am tempted by the Toynami Masterpiece Veritech Volume 1 VF-1J Rick Hunter - $55

Would you be able to hold on to it until the Parra Fair? I 'll pay upon pickup.

A picture tells the story:



The first valkyrie is a Yamato Version 1 VF-1S (no strike armour attached), the second is the Bandai VF-1S (same mold as G1 Jetfire), the third is the Masterpiece VF-1S from Toynami, followed at the end by Henkei Convoy.

Well ofcourse, the original Jetfire is the coolest Transformer in the history of ever, right?

yup, i know dirge loves G1 Jetfire to death.

I'm happy as long as Jetfire and Skyfire remain distinct.

Just like RIRFIB/RIBFIR I see the Jetfire/Skyfire debate as pointless. It's very clear who Jetfire and Skyfire are within context of the medium discussed.

Just as I call Rumble 'the blue guy' when I am directly referring to the cartoon, I refer to the name Skyfire when I am referring to the cartoon character.

If I am discussing the comics or toys - I refer to the character's name as Jetfire just as Rumble is the red guy as far as the toys and comics go.

That's how the characters were officially named in those respective mediums.

Of course an individual fan has every right to call the character whatever he/she likes but that is just personal preference.

When it comes to Jetfire and Skyfire being distinct, of course they are - One is the character in the cartoon and the other is the character in the comics/toys.

Any interest in a Bandai VF-1A Hikaru 1/55 (based on G1 Jetfire mold with different head)? Or a Yamato Version 1 VF-1A Hikaru 1/60? Thinking of getting rid of these 2.
