    '"Respect My Gangsta!"

    When Wyvern posted his WFC Cliffjumper head swap for Classics Cliffjumper I jumped for joy! Finally, I could have a Cliffjumper that doesn't look like a sunburned Bumblebee.

    I also added hands with articulated trigger and grouped forefingers, a custom sculpted front bumper and a nice weapon selection. The B.F.G. was made from parts from my scrap parts bin (There's a WFC Megatron barrel in there), the handgun from Gundam 00 Dynames and the rifle from that same Gundam series 1/144 Gundam Arios (from a custom Starscream by Shinobitron). I modeled his decals after one of the Red Bull rally cars and recreated the decals. He also has a nice Illionois personalized plate (something tells me CJ would be comfortable on the South Side of Chicago).

    "Traitor!"

    The trailer has been.....modded. :lol  Have a look in a few days to see how he carries all those weapons around. More pics HERE. Thanks for looking

    Got plans for a WFC version of CJ? You know why I ask. ;) 

    I got to say I love the decals. Wile I don't personally care for Red Bull or Citroen, they just work on this mold. I can't wait to see the trailer, he needs a way to store those BFG's. :) 

    I'm slightly disappointed by the lack of detail on the weapons, though. They just seem black. I would've expected CJ to be worn and torn, battle scarred and the like... :(

    The license plate is the best part. Well done.

    Great! And I really like the license plate and the Red Bull sponsor. I assume that nod to Cliffjumper's color and helmet were intentional? :)

    Wow. I'm usually not a fan of CJ, but this is fantastic!
    Those guns are imposing, yet not too OTT.
    My only complaint is that some of the stickers look like stickers, in that the red doesn't match up and the borders stick out a bit. I'd have thought either stripes or fades would be better suiting, but that's just personal preference.

    I love that license plate design! The stickers you chose are all very eye-catching too. Very good custom work here!

    I agree with Yaujta's comments about some of the stickers. I'd also like to see some of the red panel lining carried over to the BFG (WFC-sytle) or maybe an aluminum or steel color used at points to break up the blanket of black a bit. This custom is top notch, regardless. In my opinion, Cliffjumper never looked better. :)

    The guns are awesome and CJ as a whole looks amazing, but... he's a Peugeot. ;)

    Fantastic work - I love the Red Bull idea, and he pulls it off well.

    I recognise some Zabre bits on that BFG! :D

    That is kickass, especially the Citroen rally decals. Im not the biggest fan of decals but these work great. I love the modified fromt bumper and sideskirts but you should have continued the lines by adding a skirt around the rear bumper too. That would have flowed alot nicer and not break up the lines around the seals as much. STill great though.

    Really? I wanted to keep it kinda simple for the classics, ya know. There is a bit of highlights on the weapons, but that's it. Thanks, man!

    Bingo!

    Thanks, Yaujta. I thought of just giving him simple racing stripes, but I wanted to push it. My color match for the decals was a shade off, but it's HARD to match them up color wise. And the yelow and white would not have shown up on well on Clear decals.

    :lol  DUDE!! LMAO

    Something else I thought about, then I said "Nah, your doing to much!:, and decided to go with a simpler palette. I debated having Boggs6ft7 print my decals, but I think I used up all his printer ink with that Sunstorm! :lol 

    I LOVE Peugeots!

    Damn good eye, man.

    The rear bumper idea I thought of...but that would break up what I wanted to do for the trailer. :thumb 
    Thanks everyone for all your comments.
