    I know a couple of people looking for that Cliffjumper so they will be pleased to hear he's hitting US shelves now. :) 

    That what I was wondering about but there is what appears to be a Target exclusive TR Soundwave or Cassette pack box at the bottom.

    Out of interest, was there any character art on the side of the packaging? Just curious as to whether it's Cliffjumper from the movie or just a red Bumblebee render.

    Wow that's really lame (though not unexpected).
    After killing him before he had a chance to do anything
    they had to disrespect him again by not even giving him his own character art.

    Hasbro's character arts have been finalized way before the movie CGI is. Even Bumblebee looks off in Hasbro's art.

    They couldn’t bother to give Cliffjumper a different head sculpt? That’s disappointing.

    ...nothing wrong with a red bumblebee, as long as they don't try to pass him off as cliffjumper... =\

    I'd get the outrage if this was a Studio Series figure, and if, y'know, he actually had a significant role in the movie. But you guys are really going to get upset over a single figure for a minor character in a line for little kids not having unique tooling? Come on.

    Yeah yeah.. It's a kids line, not SS etc.. But still LAZY. That's not Cliffjumper.. That's just Bumblebee in red.

    Cliffjumper looked nothing like that in the film.

    Has there even been a Legion size repaint that's been given a new head or anything? The only times I can recall anything being more than a straight redeco are guys given new hands to hold weapons (ie. GDO Hoist, DOTM Barricade, etc.).

    Nope, I can’t think of any at the moment in regards to Cliffjumper. I only said it was disappointing because it would have been nice if the toy did get a new head. I wasn’t very surprised that Cliffjumper didn’t get a new head since Hasbro doesn’t usually do it if it’s legend size. Would have been nice if Hasbro gave Cliffjumper a new head. Preferably similar to his head in the Bumblebee film. Even though it was doubtful Hasbro would do it.
