    I'm thinking about buying RID Cliffjumper. Should I cave, or should I wait for the inevitable repaint?

    EDIT: I'm already buying the AE Generations Cliffjumper and the SDCC Cliffjumper (if he's a good price), so I'll have the FE mold twice over.

    I just want to know if RID Cliffjumper is worth buying.

    Buy. He's fun, and I wouldn't call a redeco a sure thing. Though I hope we get a Tailgate outta him.

    He's a good fig. I'd buy him, though waiting for a mark down might not be a bad idea. He, Bee, and Jack will all eventually get marked down.

    Buy him now. His transformation outpaces the First Edition's at some point and he's very show-accurate.

    Repaint for what? Just get him as is. Or the First Edition if you find one cheap.

    i would wait for 4 solid reasons

    1. re will probly get repacked into another wave
    2. he is a wave 1 figure and stores over stock wave 1 like ******s
    3. there is the invatable repaint of him as tailgate
    4. waiting for a cheaper price you can do that with all wave 1 figures i would'nt recommend it with wave 3 figures though

    I'm interested to see how this goes- I've skipped him over a lot, but I like him.

    I've not pulled the trigger on him yet either even though I like him as a character. I may go with a FE as well.

    I own both, and would strongly recommend getting the FE version. It incorporates a much cleaner transformation, doesn't use false details to sub for the car mode parts in bot mode, and has the integrated arm cannons rather than an engine block... club... thing.

    RiD Cliff isn't a "bad" toy if you have no other options, but I think the FE is a much better alternative.

    Buy the Legion.

    It is worth your time. The question is, are you worth its time?

    I'm just going by Hasbro's 'weel, we tryz 2 gt dem FE figs in teh stats lololololol!!1!' 'promise'

    Highly unlikely, so just buy the crappier RiD one, OP.

    Better yet, but Cyberverse CJ. That's far better.
