    Did anyone see this auction for a Classics Cliffjumper Upgrade Kit?

    I did ask the seller if it came with the packaging, comic and what number it was. The seller responded with:

    Hi,
    this is a limited reissue. The comic is not a standard part of the
    package as per description. The original piece was priced at close to
    180USD, this reissue is for those who cannot afford the vintage piece, and
    is assured for quality. ​


    Has anyone heard if TFC actually made a reissue?

    I believe TFC said the mold had degraded, and that they weren't producing any more. This appears to be a knockoff of the set.

    Though, I dunno.... can an unofficial repro of an unofficial product really be considered a knockoff? :p 

    Gotta admit, at that price it is tempting.... but still very steep. And besides, you saw it first. :) 

    EDIT: beaten to it! And regarding quality, I think Razerwire is correct... it definitely looks like a degradation from the original. The gun looks mushy and misshapen, and you can see varied thicknesses and pooled, oversprayed plastic bits around the edges of the other pieces.

    Just found this thread after making a post in the Toy forum. This is definitely a knock off. The real Cliffjumper kits are also numbered individually out of 300, to proof their limited run. These bootlegs are not by FansProject, or endorsed by them. Please be aware, there is still a demand for the Cliffjumper kits, but supporting bootlegs like this, for items made by fans, just hurt our chances to get even more new creative items like this and City Commander.
