Please tell me why RID got a new mold of Cliffjumper. I don't get it.
RID gets new molds of everything.
There was supposed to be a much bigger gap between FE and RID.
Because the fandom was getting ready to drop the name Hasblow. They wanted to prove that they truely deserved that nickname.
wow that RID CJ is bad, while the chest does look a tad better, the FE is still miles above.
The RID has some major gorilla arms and big hands.
This x 100
Eh. I dunno. I kinda like both.
I was going to get some prime figures, but after seeing this.... nope. Don't even know if I want wheeljack as that was one of the top ones I wanted from them. Dang it....
The more I look at it, the more I think I'll be okay with it in lieu of the FE version.
So let me get this straight... seeing a comparrison of a toy makes you not want to buy a totally different one?
That's like not buying a Honda because you think Ford trucks are ugly.
They actually wanted to see if the fandom was dumb enough to actually use that nickname.
They were proven right.
At first, I liked the RID version a lot better, since it has a better-looking chest, but everything else about it looks so horrible. Next to the FE version, it almost looks like a Happy Meal toy. I also prefer the real roof chest on the FE one to the fake roof chest on the RID one, and I really like the guns on the FE one. I sure hope I'm able to get an FE one, since otherwise, I'm not getting a Prime Cliffjumper at all.
RID Cliffjumper isn't the worst thing ever, but he looks pretty bad when you stand him next to FE Cliffjumper.
Its too bad I wasn't able to find the First Edition one cuz that looks like crap
I like the RID Cliffjumper, but NOT AS CLIFF. I'm definitely going to fiddle with the head and repaint him into Trailbreaker, since he uses the same model as Cliff (we never see his head). It'll let them be similar enough to work while still being different.
Plus, that way I've got continuity when I get zombie Cliff, which is based off the FE mold.
the legs on the RID is more sexy though, my FE cliff's legs are wobbly
It's still a friggen nightmare.
Why did they decide to change the mold? They were just fine.
Dear lord, I hope they keep bulkhead the same for RID....
You mean you want to repaint him into Tailgate, right?
Because someone at Hasbro thought it would be funny to tease you with a nice looking figure only to have you face the disappointment of the bad looking one is the only Hasbro is going to sell you.
Its a different line. Bulkhead WILL get a new mold.
I like the new Prime Cliffjumper more than the first. The only problem I have is how the detail came out, but that seems to be a line wide thing.
