Legends Jetfire - Movie - Figure


Legends Class Jetfire

The Legend class once again offerings to the TF Universe. It didn't seem like the Legends were terribly popular for the 2007 movie, but part of that might have been because of a perceived apathetic attempt to recreate the characters. Hasbro, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to give Legends another go, starting with Jetfire

Robot Mode

Unfortunately, I do not have a Leader class figure to compare the Legend to, nor have I seen the actually movie depiction in great enough length to compare this figure to. From a Legends standpoint, the figure looks pretty decent. He is mostly black with gray limbs and some red accents. .

Details are also better than average for a Legend. He has fists, and in his left fist is his landing gear, which looks to double as his cane. The arms do come off as looking spindly, though. Without having the Leader figure to compare it to, I'd say it's not a bad job.

Articulation

Feet:Stationary (Technical)
Knees:Pin hinge, 150 degree bend
Hips: Ball joint, 90 degree bend and unlimited leg rotation
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Ball joint, 90 degree spread, 180 degree horizontal rotation and unlimited vertical rotation
Elbows:Stationary
Head:Stationary

The legs are pretty articulate, but the rest of his isn't. Shoulders do have better than average articulation

Robot Mode Specs

Height:3.12in/79.3mm(4in/101.6mm including canopy)
Width:1.75in/44.5mm
Depth:1.38in/35.1mm

Transformation

Lift up the nose of the plane, which is on his back. Spread out the arms, then fold them back and connect them under the nose. Pull the legs apart and fold them outward. Tuck the lower legs in. Rotate the legs so the wings are in the correct positions.

Alt Mode

The resulting SR71 Blackbird portrayal isn't as bad as initial photos might have suggested. The legs do clutter up the look, but otherwise it's not bad considering the class rating.

You do have to deal with the head sculpt sticking out on the backside, but it's integrated enough so it's not an eyesore. There is no landing gear. The gear attached to his left hand is stationary and is tucked away in alt mode.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 3.25in/82.6mm
Wingspan:3.38in/85.6mm
Height:0.75in/19.1mm
Scale Ratio:397.1(est)
Wheels: None
Detailed cockpit:None

Verdict

Robot Mode: For a legend figure, pretty decent. No elbow and poor leg articulation
Alt Mode:Wing design is cluttered up a bit, no landing gear
Overall:Being that it's a legend, this is a decent score. Anymore than $5, though, and it's best left on the peg.

Scout:Legend
