    I have the MadMan Beast Wars DvDs with commentary on most of the episodes. I heard them talking about how expensive it is to create a character for CGI in relation to Inferno's "death" at the end of season 2 of Beast Wars, but they decided to just keep him on because it would save money. Now I realize that this is almost 15 years later, but could it be possible that they are planning on keeping CliffJumper, because it would be pointless to spend money on a design, only to have him killed five minutes later. Well anyway, I think they may just find a way to revive him later in the series. What do you think?

    On another note. I looked around the internet for this series is continuation and couldn't find any news articles. So I guess my question is, how do so many people on this website know that this series will continue with 26 episodes, if that information has not been released yet?

    99% No. As for cost of modeling to kill a character so fast see Transmutate.

    The character was only even used to let the rock guest star perform it. It was just a niche for the pilot >.>

    Really think he would come back to do it ? Would be dumb to give him a new voice too

    Would it even really be possible for him to be alive in his state last we saw him?

    I'm thinking even if he COULD have miraculously survived everything that happened, I don't think it would be in any kind of state we'd want to see him in. o_O

    98% of me thinks probably not. The other 2%... not so sure.

    Cliff's dead at present, but I cannot rule out the possibility that he may be resurrected somewhere down the road (read: when the Rock consents to doing another guest appearance).

    They could see them some how rebuilding him from his spark or something.
    It could also be used to explain why his voice would be different if they couldn't get the Rock back.

    He's passed on! This Autobot is no more! He has ceased to be! He's expired and gone to meet the Well of All Sparks! He is a late Transformer! He's a stiff! Bereft of spark, he rests in peace! If Megatron hadn't filled him with dark energon he would be pushing up the daisies! His mechanical processes are of interest only to historians! He's hopped the twig! He's shuffled off this mortal coil! He's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This.... is an EX-CLIFFJUMPER!

    hopefully he'll return, arcee and bee are cr*p characters and the autobots need a bad*ss like cliffjumper, I think the rock would come back to voice him regularly, there's stars in other shows voicing characters so why not the rock, he has kids so I think he'll be back, the problem isn't the va, if they had problems due to price i'm sure someone else would've been cast, there's something shadey bout killing someone so quick and if dark energon has negative effects,maybe normal energon has positive ones.

    There are three years worth of Earth events we haven't seen. No need to resurrect him when you can easily have him return in a flashback.

    Stabbed in the chest, resurrected as a zombie, sliced in half, dropped 200 meters and then blown up with half a mountain? Yeah maybe.

    Seriously though, if they bring him back, it'll mean that ANYONE can be brought back if they die, which would lessen the impact of any future deaths. Just watch Heroes and you'll see what i mean.

    However, I'm sure there will be flashback episodes that feature cliff.

    Cliffjumper has as much a chance of coming back as Tarantulas does getting a cameo in either Prime or TF3.

    Seeing as there is no actual cure for Dark Energon, there's only three ways I can see him returning to the series:
    1) Flashbacks, 2) Arcee has haluccinations(sp?) about seeing him (this is a long shot) and 3) ZOMBIE!!!
