i saw the 2nd teaser and noticed that when Scorponok rolls out to attack....he is actually attacking Jetfire who standing holding a crane....a crane?!?:wtf....i mean yes hes an experienced fighter but making him an old fart would be so dumb....i was hoping a little younger Jetfire (40 yrs.) would have been perfect so as to when he backstabs the Cons it would have been nice to see him Starscream take the fight to the next level....but i guess its not gonna happen and we'll see just an ordinary run of the mill fight:( now that he appears to be 80 yrs or something i dont think he'll be so strong....any thoughts on this

remember, this could be fake...it could be different....

so ur previous theory may be correct, but Michael designed the trailer to make us think different stuff...

just throwing that out there...

It is said that his enemies would go blind from over-exposure to pure awesomeness!


I'm not a big fat panda. I'm *the* big fat panda.



The Sword of Heroes! Said to be so sharp you can get cut just by looking at - Ow!



The Furious Five! You look a lot bigger than your action figures! Except you, Mantis. You're about the same.

Don't see any problems with him being old. Just makes him look wiser.
As long as his not both old and stupid.

It wouldn't make sense for him to be "Bumblebee" age or anything.

He has to be of equal or greater age than Prime.

Yes, totally agree.
To give his character some weight, he must be an experienced soldier.

That's what I was thinking :lol.

anyways, it's not his old fart cane. It's his pimp stick/cane. HE'S A PIMP! His name is Pimp Master J :lol.

lol, yes you did...only it looks like that pimp cane but it has an "8 ball" handle:D

I agree with Littleman when the cane is not there because Jetfire is disabled.

Maybe the cane is just for show, or maybe it has a dual purpose. We have all heard of those canes where you take off the head and pull a sword out. Maybe Jetfires cane does the same sort of thing. Maybe it transforms into a super sword that can cut through anything or matbe it is a deadly laser that can hit enemies from hundreds of miles away. That would be so cool.:D

wasn't there something going around that jetfire became crippled? Whatever he was leaning on he was probably using to lean on. :p

No prob. But I just had to throw that in there. Couldn't resist. :lol

It wouldn't make sense for Jetfire to need a cane because of being old. If that were the case the Fallen would need one. Since he is the oldest of them all. So Jetfire must have some injury or ailment.

I get the feeling age is not of concern to Transformers in general, since they have been around for thousands of years... Most likely he'll just be the kind of guy who acts all decrepit then kicks all ass with his pimp stick.

Say goodbye to Scorp!

Jetfire as an old guy doesn't really make sense to me. Maybe it's a bot that he's keeping secret from us.

Don't say that. I don't want them to kill off Scorps. To many D-cons have died.

I know, and I agree... But somehow I get the feeling our beloved scorpion friend has bitten off a little more than he can chew (or stab, shot, explode, burn, maim etc) in Jetfire.

However, we may see the old fella go down, before Optimus shows up and helps him out.

My First post. haha.

Its not a crane. It's one of his landing gear. :p

And i'm sure whether he has a support stick or "crane" cuz the landing gear is too short.
