Jetfire

112 Have it 24 Want it
Curator's Notes:

Jetfire's mold was taken from the Macross/Robotech VF-1S Super Valkrie Fighter design, but to many Transformers fans he will always be their favourite toy of 1985. With 3 transformation modes and a fantastic suit of armour plating, Jetfire was a die-cast marvel. Very tough to find in perfect condition or MISB.

Jetfire was used as a transformer but was under license from the Macross toyline. Jetfire is simply an amazing figure, and even holds up for the most part when compared to modern offerings. Jetfire has many easily broken and or lost parts, and it took me quite a bit of time to put mine together from many different sources.

The best of the G1 toys, if you ask me, but I'm biased because I absolutely love the Valkyrie. Amazing alt mode and a solid bot mode... you couldn't ask for much better in 1985.

Jetfire is one of the all time great Transformers, despite boasting an earlier incarnation as the Macross 1/55 Valkyrie in Japan. With 3 excellent transformations, die cast parts and a large form factor Jetfire is a must have for most Transformer collectors.

Jetfire is one of the taller transformers toy. Based off of the Robotech Macross toys. Lots of accessories that make him look even cooler.

G1 Transformers are the ones that started it all. Beginning in 1984 and going through 1990. Many of us enjoy these over others.

Yellowed. loose arm. want a new one

The best G1 figure in my opinion. Awesome on all points. I would say he could fit into the masterpiece category. Ok, sorry maybe I went too far. Or maybe Has/Tak should make a masterpiece of Jetfire. Hmmmm.

I actually owned this guy a couple of years ago, but I wasn't pleased with the condition he was in so I had to let him go. I vowed I would own him again someday, but he has to be in way better conditon, the only thing I don't like about this figure is the white parts are so bad to yellow.

While not show-accurate in the slightest, Jetfire's toy carries on that scientist feel quite a good bit.

Jetfire was one of those "perfect" figures. Large, die cast, stood higher than 99% of the figures on the market. This (along with Omega Supreme, Metroplex, etc.) is one of the cornerstones for any serious Transformers collector.
