Alas, not to be, I suppose due to legal reasons he was removed (I suppose after season 1). A great character who brought an interesting perspective.
Legal reasons? Care to elaborate?

The Jetfire toy was not based on a mold owned/created by Takara. For that reason, his name was changed into "Skyfire" for the cartoon, and his show model severely changed from the toy design.

Additionally, the show bible asked not to use the character unless necessary for that very reason.
 

Looking for a complete Energon Sky Shadow (from Superion Maximus).
Offering: Binaltech Hound, Swindle, Ravage (Corvette), Skids.
Can buy in stores: Robot Heroes Tigatron/Inferno, Ricochet/Predaking.
