    I actually saw thin on Seibertron, but I thought it was newsworthy

    Could there be a possible repaint into Cliffjumper?

    That definitely is Cliffy's head. The possibility for Cliffjumper has always been there. A Few have already spotted, someone who looks like CJ in some of the concept art by High Moon.

    That wouldn't surprise me. What does though, is the fact none of the other WfC figures are easily repaintable, well unless we get a crappy white Magnus, or a Soundblaster repaint. Hence I thought Starscream might be a better choice since there's two easy repaints that feature in-game characters.


    I'm all for the Cliffjumper love though!

    I wonder if he'll be a simple recolor or if he'll have some stylistic changes. I hope he's got a bit more than a different color going on. Heck, even Iron Hide and Ratchet show some differences, especially in their backs, despite being the same model.

    What's up with all Hasbro line-art leaks lately? First Lockdown to Axer and now this....

    Cool, but not all that surprising. Nice to see he has a new head (something the Classics CJ could have used). Would be cool if they had a third repaint, along with a third headsculpt, in the works for later on in the line (Wasp anybody?).

    Should be interesting to see what the other inevitable WfC repaints are, and whether or not Hasbro has new head sculpts lined up for them too.

    I'm not familiar with that leak, but I do remember some speculation about Axer being a Lockdown repaint.

    Good to see Cliffjumper may getting a new head sculpt if he's made. Still strange that this was found in the instructions.

    Glad he'll be getting his own head sculpt. I figured that there'd be a Cliffjumper, but the fact that he isn't in the "main" game (PS3/X360) cast some doubt on it.

    Then again, has there ever been a Bee without a Cliffjumper repaint? :lol 

    Protip: I realize most of the Movie Bee molds haven't gotten a CJ repaint.

    Maybe this CJ head can be popped off and used on Classics CJ's body.

    assuming its the same size and such

    Heh, that's just what I was thinking. The WFC Bumblebee head is so similar to the Classics Bumblebee head, that putting a new head on that body, interchangeability almost seems a given...

    Hmm, well, anyone who is reading this thread now who was lucky enough to score BB on TRU.com this week(and has Classics BB)could try and do a head swap, seeing as IF there is a WFC Cliff repaint, the ball and socket would be the same. Anyone?...

    Dear Hasbro: New head on the CJ repaint or no sale.

    Would you prefer Eeeevil Prime...? sorry i mean Nemesis Prime.

    Is this a leak? The toy is available for sale in some spots.

    Ooh, good thought. I'll totally shell out an extra $12 for a second Gen Cliffy if that's the case.

    EDIT: The answer is YES, it (the 'Bee head, at least) fits very well. The up/down movement is nearly non-existent due to the different placement of the socket, but it works.

    My camera battery is, of course, dead right now, but take my word for it.

    That's interesting (first time I've heard about that). Definitely supports the idea that Axor is a repaint of him. If I can't find Lockdown, I'll definitely get Axor. Also, it's nice to see Hasbro using some more alternate heads for some of their repaints.
