    Has anyone used the "Beelzeboss Devil Horn Custom Kit" to mod their classics Cliffjumper?

    Looking into that, but did know if it was worthwhile...

    Thoughts?

    I got it. It's ok, could be better. For $30, the guns should at least have some painted details. I mostly got it because it's my only option for a G1 cliffjumper head; the FP one is too expensive and the WFC one looks ugly as shit.

    If you've ever look closely at the face sculpt on the FP version, it's not really all that great either. It was in their early days so that may be why. With what's out there right now the Devil Horn version is really not that bad for it's price. I was hoping that Venksta did his but after the Devil Horn version was announced I think he scrapped the idea or put it on the back burner.

    I bought it and I think it's awesome.

    Great for a G1 CJ head.

    The light piping is very poor on the head. You pretty much need a direct source of light shining directly down to get anything through the eyes and even then the head is usually already awash in light to a point that it doesn't seem as interesting as light piping should be. See my third pic for an example. The head is nice though. Very different than the Bumblebee head yet still fitting the figure very well. I think it could have had sharper features but that is minor. The guns are nicely sculpted but going with cartoon accuracy leaves a little to be desired. I wish the details popped more with some coloring. I am considering doing some silver marker. The gun in his right hand is the BFG from the kit. The left hand gun I think is from City Commander. I have the small pistol on the G3 roller.

    The guns look good in black. Might buy the yellow version for the guns. Anyone want to buy the head off me? I think the head is hideous.

    My Devil Horns kit is great - one of my favorite 3rd party purchases.

    The set is decent enough, and cheap compared to the alternatives. I ended up lucky and traded mine for the FP one though

    See? Those guns are cool. I want them. But I would really like that FP bazooka.

    Any chance someone could take a pic of the FP project head? I'd love to check that out for comparison!
