War for Cybertron Siege Commander-class Jetfire has arrived and there is really only one word that describes this figure: WOW!
The box is, unsurprisingly, huge with a tease of the upcoming Titan-class Omega Supreme.
Robot mode has quite a presence in hand and not just due to the size. This is unquestionably “Skyfire” from the G1 cartoon.
There are so many little details with no splotchy “weathering” to get in the way.
They even included a TOE* swapable faction symbol to recreate his brief time with the Decepticons.
The 5mm port in the hand is very clever, it moves out of the way when the hand is open and back again when it is closed.
The battle mask stores in a dedicated chamber within the extra chest armor.
Here he is with all of his armor attached.
An now with effects!
My only complaint is that there’s no ankle tilt which can limit poseability.
The Space Jet
Jet mode is, once again, almost straight from the cartoon with lots of little details.
It even has retracting landing gear:
It comes packaged with a plug in the cockpit covered with tech details, if you remove this you can place a Titan Master there instead.
Instead of the splotches found on many Siege releases, the weathering on Jetfire is limited to much more subtle grey paint applications on the jet nose and robot legs.
The armor and weapons can be assembled into a jet sled.
A truly great figure that fully justifies the new size class. Here he is with Siege Optimus Prime to give you a better sense of scale.
* “That One Episode” – the obligatory accessory that the character used once in the cartoon.
