    Hi all,
    Here is a straight repaint of RTS Bumble Bee to look like (G1 style) Cliffjumper but I guess it is classics looking with out the silver all over it. I painted it with Tamiya paints and brushed it on. The weapon is a G1 gun I had I used for the pictures. I can now fill in the hole in my classics shelf were he will be standing.
    Thanks for looking and CC is always welcome.

    02/13/12, I picked up a second WFC cliffjumper so I can use the head f or a swap out. Will paint it up and update pictures when done.
    Thanks all.

    UPDATE: 02/18/12
    Swapped out the head and painted it. I uploaded new pictures,
    Thanks all, CC are all ways welcome. :)

    It looks great to me other than since it's solid red and still the BB head it just looks like a red bumblebee to me. Sure that's what Cliffjumper is but oh well. He looks great. If you could get the custom head set that's out there (devil horns i think it's called) he would look perfect

    C16 that wasn't necessary, I would recomend using the WFC cliffjumper head but the green lights and the red work really well, I like the gun you used by the way, but if you want to give him a chrome look for his mags and gun I recomend using citidel paints as they have some good chrome paints.

    Oh no. Hurt jordy's feelings. Should I even ask if it's Classics style or G1 style? Since the title and post say different things.

    It looks good though, nice and simple. A black trim for the car mode would look good. I added one to mine.

    Nice, paintwork, I would just either track down a wfc Cliffy & take his noggin or get the beezlebus devil horns kit. The kit costs a little more, but it comes with a couple weapons as well. I think the new head would really top this one off...sorry, couldn't resist.

    All,
    Thanks for the input and kind words. I do have a WFC Cliffjumper that I may use for a bash down the road and then I may consider a head swap.

    The WFC head works tons better than the Devil Horns. I didn't like how that head looked. Too generic for my taste, it seemed to lack the personality that CJ exudes. The WFC head, to me, has the aggressive look to it. It just has to be painted to match. I do like how the red you used 'pops' out that vibrant color CJ is known for.
