    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post it, but figured this might be something people in the toy discussion would be interested in.

    So, FOC is slowly approaching, and with Wave 1 and Bruticus entering people's collections, I wanted to add another character to the mix.

    With all of the Cliffjumper toys we've been getting, the FE, the PRID, and the soon coming Generations deluxe, a retool of the FE mold, and not to mention the old WFC toy, I had very high doubts that we'd never see a true FOC Cliffjumper toy.

    So, I fiddled around with my existing cliffjumpers, and to my surprise, the FE head can fit rather nicely onto the WFC Cliffjumper's body, making a pretty good FOC Cliffjumper if you ask me.

    It's easy to do, and has a nice result, as well as having a pretty decent range of motion, you just need the WFC Cliffjumper and any version of the FE head. (PRID CJ won't work sadly)

    Sorry for digging up an old topic, but why won't PRID CJ's head work? I was planning to do just that. I have a generations Cliff on the way.

    I believe it's because the FOC Cliff has the ball in the chest, whereas the PRID version has the ball in the neck

    Hey, new to the forum. I realize this is an old thread but I'm interested in doing this head swap. Is this swap as easy as unscrewing the two heads and putting the first editions head on the wfc body or was there more mods required?

    Thanks.

    The bump at least pertains to the topic at hand. So to answer your question, it doesn't require modding. Just swap heads and you're done. Alternatively, you can get a slightly more accurate FOC CJ head from Fakebusker's store here Rock Shooter head by fakebusker83 on Shapeways

    Thats F'n hilarious. I bought an FE Cliff last year just for this purpose, and thought that the heads wouldn't swap once I had them both in hand. I just put FE Cliffs head on FOC Cliff in less than two minutes, drunk off my ass on at least 10 shots of Crown Royal and Captain Morgan(Reverend Horton Heat played Dickens Pub tonight :rock ). It's that easy. That'll teach me to be all defeatist for nothing. Muchos Gracias!!!

    Now the FE Cliff mold, was it the same as the GDO Cliff mold? And can that head be swapped out as well?

    I'm guessing it has the same neck, but the GDO mold has a different headsculpt to be more G1.

    I know it did, that's why I was asking if the GDO mold is the same as the FE PRIME Cliff mold. I basically want to do a headswap and I'm either going to have to get a couple WFC Cliffjumpers, or a couple GDO Cliffjumpers.
