JETFIRE was once famous across the face of CYBERTRON. As a great scientist and explorer, he was the first to journey to the black depths of deep space, and the only one to ever face and defeat the star pirates of the Blot Nebula. It was because of his status as a hero that his sudden disappearance was greeted with worldwide dismay. He was discovered millions of years later, frozen deep within the Arctic glacier on Earth, and rose immediately to the challenge presented by the DECEPTICONS. He is among the mightiest and bravest of the AUTOBOTS, diving into battle without a moments hesitation, the stuttering roar of his particle beam repeaters drowning out all other sounds.Robot-to-vehicle figure has arm blasters that fire two projectiles, a removable helmet, rotating laser cannons and a booster unit that becomes a backpack in robot mode! WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Arch-rival to Decepticon warrior Starscream, Jetfire has a long, complicated history in the ongoing clash between Autobots and Decepticons. For untold millennia, he was frozen in a block of arctic ice, the result of an avalanche that buried him while on a scientific mission to earth. Later, confused by his close friendship with Starscream, he dabbled in the Decepticon cause, until he discovered the full treachery and malevolence of his former friend and his cohorts. Now Jetfire misses no opportunity to battle Starscream in the sky. His speed, courage, and ability to transform himself from robot to jet makes this fighter a considerable match for his enemy. The Titanium series die-cast metal Jetfire, in red, gray, and black, stands six inches tall on his display platform. Collectors won’t want to be without this key figure in the epic power struggle between the Transformer Universe’s Decepticons and Autobots. --Emilie Coulter
