    If this is posted somewhere else, please merge it.

    So getting into the HasbroToyShop at SDCC line was very difficult tonight. The line closed literally 5 minutes after the floor show opened! It was pandemonium and absolute bedlam. :bay 

    I got me this guy and a Bruticus. What awesome exclusives they have this year!

    Here is the outer box shots front and back. It's bigger than I thought it would be.

    The zombie head inside is pretty big. Really neat paint apps on it and cool translucent purple throughout.

    Turn it around and poor Cliff seen better days! The purpleness of the plastic really plays tricks with the camera, he is a darker shade of red than the PRID Cliff.

    These are the two accessories. They are made of clear purple rubber and they pick up dust to no end.

    Same mold as FE Cliff that I never saw in the states. I think it's an awesome mold with lots of cool tricks for transforming. I mistransformed him into alt mode but after I played around with him it really grew on me.

    The red paint is laid THICK over the purple translucent parts, you can tell that this figure will chip with time as the paint is on several tabbed pieces. I'm not sure if this was an issue with FE Cliff but let it be known.

    Size comparisons.

    He is slightly larger than PRID Cliff in both alt and robot mode.

    The broken dark energon parts and the broken windshield really look nice up close. No need for reprolabels or Dr. Wu here.

    Overall this is a great figure and must have for any TF : Prime completists. I think these were limit 3 at SDCC but I'm sure he'll probably be the easier exclusive to get due to his price point and numbers.

    I'll be at the con all week so follow me on twitter @hiway7

    Wow, that does look pretty cool!

    BTW, on Bruticus: Do you know if Onslaught's gun can tab onto his back when combined, to cover up that gap of his?

    I second on Bruticus.

    As for Cliff, that paint issue makes it a big pass for me.

    Eurgh. It looks awful. Rubber and the worst energon 'glow' marks I've ever seen. I'll stick with the Takara version.

    Thanks for the pics! Glad I got someone to mule one and a brut for me. I am a huge fan of this mold and don't have any issues buying it for the 4th time.

    He looks kind of nice. Maybe I'll try and hunt him down on the 'Bay at some point.

    Many thanks for the abundance of pictures!

    One note; yours is mistransformed in robot mode. The black knees on his do straighten out and sit flush with the red thigh and red part beneath the knee.

    Looks like he made it that way in the packaging and maybe the left it out on the instructions?

    Oh snap. I feel partially bad for people who got this Cliffjumper for the price, as Hasbro announced that they "WILL" be releasing the FE stuff this Fall in the US. Which INCLUDES "Terrorcon Cliffjumper". Now, two things must be considered: 1) Will this even happen? We know "announcements of plans" and "actually events" are two different things, and B) Will it be this Red Cliff? or the TakTom translucent purple?

    EDIT: While pics of the Red Terrorcon Cliff were shown, plans have been known to change.

    I think the retail will have a slightly different deco but won't come with the energon pieces. /guessing

    The SDCC has more paint apps, Dark Energon effects, and a fancy box. The retail version is basically just dumbed down.
