    So I used my birthday money and got both figures. LOVE the Alternity line. Like a lot of people, I didn't think I would get these based on the pictures. But as many reviewers said, they look better in person AND THEY DO :) 

    Anyway, still not liking the legs, I found a way to bulk up the legs by slightly mistransforming them. You can see the difference. I think I will keep Cliffjumper in the correct taller transformation and Bumblebee smaller.

    I also keep Bumblebee's weapons store to fatten up the legs.

    wider stance = shorter figure.

    Did you read his post? He purposefully made Bumblebee shorter.

    hey - i'm not being funny about it, it's a wonderful fanmode and better than the official one in every way. i'm just saying that it didn't make much difference to his height, opposed to spreading his legs a little did.

    apparently not, i got the impression this was the "Cliffjumper taller than Bumblebee" thread where the OP detailed his alternate leg transformation that made bumblebee shorter.

    Sorry that the thread title was confusing. I should have worded it, "I got both Alternity Cliffjumper and Alternity Bumblebee but didn't like the skinny legs so I found a way to fatten them up but am going to post comparison pictures of Alternity Cliffjumper in the correct transformation and Alternity Bumblebee in an alternative shorter but fatter legs transformation."

    It was not my intent to give people the wrong impression.

    oi, sarky :D 

    and i should have thought more mindful of you and roanstalker's feelings before posting what could be construed as a comment hilighting a perceived disparacy between the thread's title and it's contents. man, you transformers fans are so aggressive! lets hug.

    Huh. Looks like you have the front fender upsidedown and the heels are out. Is Cliffjumper's engine attached to the crotch? The hood looks lower.
