[glow=blue,2,000]Ummmm, I don't know. There was Blaster. Ultra Magnus and Skylynx who are taller then Prime when it comes to Toys. UM and SL are taller then Prime. Then there's The Gesaults, Omega and thats it. Who are you thinking of?[/glow]
wha? Sky and Jet were the same dudes? how does that work? And does someone wanna explain how Skyfire survived being buried by ice the the episode where he made his first appearance, I missed the ep where he came back ya see
Simple... they just dug him up again or something.
Err.. right to try and explain the JetFire/Skyfire thing...
ok for Jetfire (who came first) they wanted a futuristic jet.. so they used a Macross Valkery. But due to licencing issues. Which are more strickt in the west they couldn't use JetFire in the cartoon as they'd probubly have to pay a ton of royaltys as they dont realy own the mold.
So they Created Skyfire... who IS jetfire basicly.. just looks different and has a slightly changed name. Also in the comics Jetfire is still named Jetfire but looks like Skyfire.
There was never a Skyfire toy.... although I beleave there was a custom maid one in very limited numbers at a TF convention.
This is also why Jetfire will most likely never be reissued as he is a Bandi mold
I think Skyfire's wicked, he can totally kick ass. Although I don't understand why they used Jetfire in Armada if they could of just used Skyfire who's obviously going to be more popular, better known and therefore in theory should generate more toy sales.
lol no its his aperance that they dont have the licance for.. the name Skyfire was only used in the cartoon for the first season or whatever where as In the comic he was called Jetfire but had Skyfires look.
So they have the name Jetfire.. and the look of Skyfire... but they cant release the original mold of Jetfire and like said they have probubly lost the licance to the name Skyfire.. Like the did with Jazz and Hotrod. Hence Hotrod being called Rodimus Major.. or Hot Rodimus now.. and Jazz is cleverly called Autobot Jazz but everyone just dropps the autobot bit
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
