    I know....I know. It's been done before. But this is my take on CLiffjumper from a RTS Bumblebee.

    I did some of my own detailing as I don't like just copying the classics cliffy paint. I hope you guys like it.

    I used Glossy banner red krylon. Apple barrel black acrylic, Testors glossy black enamel, and testors metallic silver enamel.

    Thank you, it's my third custom ever, and my 2nd full re-paint ever. I will probably get a different head for him, so he just doesn't look like a painted bee, but I refuse to pay 30 bucks for the devil horns one.

    Nice... full repaints are a big job!

    Maybe you already know this, but I just wanted to point out that the backpack unit on both figures hasn't been transformed all the way. :)

    Really? Which part? I had no idea actually
    (nevermind, I figured it out. I moved the trailer hitch down, and moved down the head and chest. Thanks :)  )

    :thumb  No prob. A lot of people miss that step, and it makes the figure soooo much more solid when you lock down the backpack.

    You could do what a lot of others have done and just take a head from WFC Cliffjumper. Apparently the ball-joint is the right size, so you don't even have to modify anything.

    The Devil horns custom kit is getting cheap now. I picked up the Bumblebee version and just painted it red. Works well :thumbs2:

    I see a giant happy face on his chest...the 2 eyes, the nose, and the giant open mouth smile. :D 

    Aside from that, I like it.

    This, plus the legs looks way too busy with detail. I can appreciate the effort it takes to do a full repaint, though. Be proud of your cliffy!

    Damn, too much details in the legs? I thought it looked cool :( 

    would it be better of i painted over the grey on the inner leg and chest?

    Tell you what, paint Bumblebee's iner legs to match and it'll look completely right. As for the chest, put an autobot logo where the rub symbol used to be and no one will ever see a big face. ^_^

    I guess I over did it with the inner wiring grey detailing in the legs
