    Hey everyone,
    Here's my post for my battle damaged cliffjumper prime figure that i just finished.

    I actually haven't bought any transformers in years, not since I was a kid. But lately i've gotten back into it and damn it's still just as fun?! The little pull back in was caused by seeing the cool little articulated cliffjumper prime cyberverse figure, i'm a sucker for the old muscle cars and his vehicle mode was great. I did some battle damage painting on the little fella and that got me all back 'into it'.

    I then saw that there was a larger cliff figure, I had no idea who cliffjumper was, or even the Prime TV series, I just thought the figure was cool. I now know there's a first edition, but for some reason I prefer the legs and shoulders on this one.

    So I eventually caught up to what all of you probably know, the single episode he's in in the Prime series, and adjusted the model's colours to match the show as much as I could (Like changing the red parts on his shoulder chunks) I melted some parts with a candle heated craft blade, added some bullets holes, and did alot of paint chip effects (which is actually just painting silver details OVER the red base, a trick I saw on another modders figurine, I still can't believe that this works so well?!). If you've seen the episode, the poor guy loses his horn so I lopped that off too.

    Holy crap this was fun to do, which of course you all know. It took WAY too long because I primed, and sanded, dismantled and focussed on each piece individually, (I wanted to do it right), but wah it's fun!

    Hit me back with any feedback!

    Ah just the one on his hood. I was tossing around the idea of putting one on his chest, but haven't done that yet.

    If you could put another one on him, where would you put it?

    Wow, that looks wonderful! The RID mould looks great when painted properly.

    And it never bothered me that Hasbro didn't leave one horn off the Terrorcon Cliff's vehicle mode until now. It would have added a lot to the already useless alt mode. (only useless for Terrorcon, though it looks really cook with the purple windshields and battle marks, the horn would have looked really cool.)

    The battle damage looks very well done. If you hadn't said it was painted on, I'd swear it looks like the red is chipped away.
