Topless Robot has gotten their hands on the toy for Autobot Jetfire from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and the big giant robot appears to be rocking a walking cane. Yes, you read that correctly. A big robot with a walking cane. Has Michael Bay lost his mind? More, possibly spoilery, details after the jump.
Michael Bay told French magazine Premier Cine Live that the film features “an old Transformer, who loses screws and bolts at every move” and is voiced by John Turturro. In the film, Agent Simmons (also played by Turturro) users some kind of radiation tracker to locate Jetfire, who has since retired and is in the form of an SR-71 Blackbird. Jetfire’s bio reads:
Jetfire grew tired or war a long time ago. The reckless ambition of the Decepticons and the senseless violence of their war sickened him, and so he left Cybertron to go into hiding. The form he eventually chose on Earth seemed appropriate for one who wished to remain unseen. He slumbered in peace for years. Now, awakened by the arrival of the war on Earth, he decides once again to enter the fight – this time on the side of the Autobots, and this time to end it for good, whatever the cost.
And now the toy version of the Autobot shows a robot with an older looking face and a walking cane. Okay, now for a bit of cool news. Be warned, this is probably a mega spoiler: The action figures for Jetfire and Optimus Prime combine to form a bigger more giant robot to take on the Decepticons.
