    I'm now inspired to do more minibot heads, after my other project has been going so well:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/415391-classics-legends-goldbug.html

    Now I am working on fitting a G1 Cliffjumper head onto the Classics Red Bumblebee from the Henkei C-18 three pack. I may consider doing a small repro-run of this head if there is demand (like I am doing on my Goldbug head). I'm not sure how many of you actually have the Henkei Cliffjumper minibot, so if you want this head just PM me so I can get an idea of whether or not a small run is warranted.

    Anyway, onto the show! I have half of it done, with the base of a Legends Bumblebee head cut off and glued to the back of a G1 Cliffjumper head. Next, I will be getting another Cliffjumper head and putting it on the back half to complete the helmet (filling in the face parts with green stuff). I really have never liked the idea of Cliffjumper as a straight repaint of Bumblebee. He needs his own noggin! Also, I like my minibots to be mini! So these little guys are the definitive Classics versions for me.

    I have a law about any Bee and Jumper in my collection sharing a body, do I can't, but this looks VERY cool!

    I it weren't for the above mentioned law, and my CJ-as-Porche fetish, I'd be thinking about getting one for my I-Gear red-bee.

    THAT might be a use a lot of less-picky folks might go in for though...

    They will be $12 each. Goldbug is being cast now, Cliffjumper will be done later. My best estimate is that Goldbug will be ready in a month, with the Cliffjumper release one month later.

    Will there be an instructional thread as to how to remove the original head?

    This looks soooo good! Now I want a Henkei CJ.
    Maybe I'll get an extra RTS Goldbug and repaint him.
    Have you cast the head yet, btw?

    My best guess is two more weeks. I am doing 10 units of this head.

    That head looks great. That would work for and action master G1 CJ I'm working on.
