    So I grabbed a PRID Cliffjumper solely to turn into Tailgate. In the show Tailgate was a reskin of Cliffjumper so I thought this was a great idea. I have FE Cliff to be Cliff and can have PRID Cliff be Tailgate so they have a similar but different body.

    Anywho, I grabbed a pic of Tailgate every time he was shown in Predatory and could use some help planning out how to paint PRID Cliff. Seriously, I would really like some help planning this out.

    For instance, Tailgates head seems to be mostly black with red on the top. What do you guys think? How should I paint the toy?

    It almost looks like Tailgate has Megatron's head... or at least helmet.

    Huh, you're right. His head is different from Cliffjumpers. I had thought it was just his without the horns.. Not sure what to do for the custom now. I think I can still make it work. I hope.

    Also I just realized I misspelled Cliff's name in the thread title. That's kinda funny.

    Funny, Tailgates head in the screen caps looks a lot like the head for the planned remold of Ratchet that's been floating around today.

    Based on the distribution of the red and white on his body, it looks like he'd be Anime Bluestreak in color distribution. As in, all white car with the hood and roof being red. Maybe a red pinstripe down the side of the car.
