New images of TF:A Jetfire and Jetstorm!

Posted by:

Big Bad Toy Store has brand new images of the two figure from the Jetfire & Jetstorm Entertainment Pack (the same type of set as the Optimus Prime vs. Megatron - The Battle Begins set was).

The two are both Deluxe class sized figures, but will be sold at the same price as Voyagers. There is also a bit of info included with them:

* Twin Transformers for twice the fun!
* Figures can combine and transform individually!
* Includes a DVD!

They're brothers in arms! The Autobot forces have never been stronger, and now that Jetfire and Jetstorm are on the team, they can do no wrong! This thrilling set of twin jets features two awesome figures with their own personalities that can, for the big fight, combine and fight! Megatron and his Decepticon army don't stand a chance when Optimus sends these two out on the battlefield.

Check all this out here.

THAT'S Jetfire and Jetstorm?! They look great! And both are Autobots and their combination is a little quirky!

mmm...Jetstorm does have a little BM jetstorm feel specially the helmet.and a set of wings for each one would improve their look

I agree with jumpercliff, their combination is a little odd and is a good change of one robot being legs and waist and the other being arms and torso, their combination reminds me of energon omega supreme

I really like this. I can't wait for it to hit a toy store near me.

Are you guys INSANE!!!!!!! These things are HORRABLE.I was hopeing for the combanition to be something cool,like Devasastor(G1),Its just a half Jeyfire,half Jetstorm body.Nothing special.The jet combination is REALLY stupid.A jet on top of a Jet.Again,nothing special.They make The Elite Guard look stupid.I hope they dont appear on the show.

Not bad, just odd.

Wierd combined modes, especially colors. Shame how neither mode has hands. I do, however, like the altmodes.

And yes, I noticed that these things are to Seibertron as Mystic Gohan is to Vegeta (SSJGozar joke. Youtube him.)

I don't know if I'm nissing something, but what is their combined name? Stormjet?
Knightwing said,  - 2008-10-02 05:09:47
I haven't seen a combined name for them yet, but I'd bet Jetfire + Jetstorm = Firestorm.

And ilovetransformers, yes it is a long way from perfect. But, it's a new and intersting twist on a very old concept (combination). Add to that the (not nearly as obvious) reference to the G1 clones, and these two very quickly become a must have for me.

Color me meh...

For a character that is in the top 5 for transformers popularity it feels like they dropped the ball here on Jetfire.

I'll probably pick it up, but the two "jets" don't wow me and the robot modes are mediorce also.

I wish they had decided to do them as Voyagers in a Leader package and give us a little more wow.

I've gotta say that I'm not a fan of these. I had high hopes for them, but these two suffer from a serious lack of specialization. The Vehicle modes look more like F-Zero racers than anything, making them F1 racers might have panned out better.

The combined form would look way better if there was a way to beef up the legs or make the arms look special. hands aren't crucial, but give him something besides robot boots. I like the concept, but the execution is quite lacking.

I think as individuals they look the best, but they are clearly the same mold in different colors, with the heads and clear plastic bits differentiating them. I think it didn't quite work out as hoped, but to be fair, engineering combiners is considerably more expensive than a single figure of the same size.

well they are twins and well when i say twins that means they look alike and the package did say they are brothers that are in the elite gaurd. wait they have there combined forms name on just click on the news and they will have an article about them . in that article there will be pictures

if u think of it it's got that digimon kind of thing going on ]=\ (not in a bad way)
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-10-02 19:33:33
For some reason I can't edit this news update, so I'll just say that the combined form of these two is called "Safeguard".

"if u think of it it's got that digimon kind of thing going on ]=\ (not in a bad way)"

Are you referring to a DNA Digivolution/Jogress Shinka?

??? "The things comin' out these pods just keep getting weirda' and weirda' " -Rattrap.

For some reason I imagined more of a Starscream & BB combo from BWII.

But in all seriousness, they look like prototypes for a Battlestar Galactica crossover. Nosecone is perfect for a Colonial Viper. THAT combiner I'd like to see, "VipeRaider." For now, I'll save my energon goodies for Wave4 Cheetor.

Odd combined name. Not sure what it means.

Also, it's confirmed that the robot modes are mistransformed, and the real figures will have hands. Whew, close call.
Blackout23 said,  - 2008-10-03 18:57:45
So they were mistransformed huh?,Whew,i thought they were gonna have shoes for hands!
Bellprime said,  - 2008-10-05 17:22:57
Very strange!
