    Cliffjumper made a central appearance in Out Of The Past, in which he demonstrated himself to be a pretty damn likeable character. Though it's been a season and a half since Cliffjumper's death, has this recent elaboration on his character affected you at all? In what way?

    No. He seemed like a fine character, but I still prefer that he's dead

    I am, actually. I wish they would not have killed him off. His death affects me more than Breakdown's

    I'm not sad but I did come to like his character. I'm quite proud they did an episode like this. Sure it's mainly a flashback but we get to see more of Cliff's personality and best of all, Shockwave. It would've been awesome if the Rock voiced Cliff, though, but I think the new VA did a good job.

    I was glad they decided to give us this 'extended' flashback of CJ..he would have been an awesome character to keep around..a lively one too..but the decision to have him offline has been made...and not likely to change now. No CJ in present time. Oh well...now we get to look forward to the new Autobot.

    I think it was done well, all we know of CJ's personality is that 4 minutes he was on screen prior to this (and, whether or not you consider FoC Cliffjumper as the same CJ).

    It was good to see some more characterization of him, makes you appreciate the character more, and we may well see another flashback or two like this to help make his death a wee bit more significant.

    Hard to care about someone who was barely alive in half a episode.

    Nope, as it appears he'll be the only core Autobot in the series to be killed. So while the character is better then Optimus, it needed to be done.

    Funny thing is that as soon as Cliff showed up on the screen, my 4 year old son said "Cliffjumper? But he's dead! How can he be not dead?" :lol

    Yeah I'm sad, Cliff's only time at the beginning of the show was really cool all the way to the end. Seeing this episode show off more of his personality made me wish he was still alive, TFP needed him.
