I call him Skyfire...

I have been saying for a while now that anyone not getting in on the "classics" line is missing out on one of the best toy lines ever. Jetfire is a prime example of just how great this line is.
Hasbro has finally righted a wrong from 22 years ago. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would get a close to G-1 anime accurate "Skyfire".
My friends and I always wondered why the cartoon Skyfire differed so much from the toy Jetfire back in 1985. We of course didn't know at the time about the legal issues between Hasbro and the Macross Valkyrie and vice versa. lol

I can't begin to tell you how awesome this toy is. I loved Skyfire as a child and owned the Jetfire toy as a child but it just wasn't the same, he didn't look anything like the cartoon. All that has changed now, I can't help but call him Skyfire.
Very poseable and articulated, G-1 homage, WEAPONS, WEAPONS and more WEAPONS! Skyfire is the bomb! If you haven't bought him already BUY HIM NOW before he is gone forever!! You won't be disappointed.

I am a HUGE fan of the

I am a HUGE fan of the Classics toy line and I was a bit skeptical of Jetfire at first. However, I came across one a few months ago and snagged it just for the heck of it. Boy, I'm glad I did because it is, in my opinion, the BEST figure in the Classics lineup and one of the best Transformer toys released in a long time. It's a great homage to both the original toy AND the animated character, which is pretty cool considering that their designs were fairly different.

The ONLY complaint I have is that the screw holding the left arm in at the shoulder broke, the head of the screw was completely sheared off when I noticed it. I was heartbroken because I hadn't seen any in stores for weeks. Thankfully I came across another one and was able to purchase this one and return the defective one in its place. (I tried the usual Hasbro replacement route, but Hasbro no longer had any Jetfires in stock.) I guess the moral of the story is, get a screwdriver and loosen up the shoulder screws in case yours breaks.
