    I've been trying to figure out the best option for a Classics Cliffjumper and decided to ask what you guys think of my present options:

    1) Just leave CJ the way he is, fresh out of the box?
    2) Swap his head with Gen. CJ (which I have)
    3) Spend the $30 for the Beelzeboss upgrade kit.

    What do you guys think? I'm not sure what to do with him... Oh, and do the colors for #2 match right? Pros and Cons of each? Any and all feedback highly appreciated =]

    Option 3. Or option 4 -waiting like a year for Venksta's Cliffjumper head. I don't mind leaving him as is either.

    The Generations WFC Cliffjumper head looks like shit. I don't get why people like it. It looks ugly on its own with its tiny eyes/long skinny nose/weird cheek bones, and when you put it on Classics Cliffjumper the color doesn't even match. /minirant

    The color on the head of WFC Cliffjumper is darker, but it's good enough for me. I also take off his spoiler and slide it onto his roof/chest in robot mode.

    Crappy cell phone pic ahoy:

    I hope Takara comes out with him in a G1 accurate color scheme. The guy hasn't seen a Japanese release yet, and I much prefer an entirely red car body as opposed to the one we got from Hasbro with the weird grey flame effect.

    I've been wondering about this, myself. I'm still hoping there's an outside chance that Takara will release their own Classics Cliffjumper with remolded parts like with Dirge and Thrust. Maybe...

    I know the original molds were destroyed or something, but I really wish FansProject would reissue their Cliffjumper kit. I liked the look of it not just for the head, but the weapons and extra parts to further differentiate Cliffjumper from Bumblebee. Oh well.

    In the meantime, I've debated pulling the trigger on the Beezleboss upgrade (the head's not perfect but is alright, I just with they'd painted the damn guns) but I'll probably end up waiting on Venksta since I love his stuff.

    Me, I just passed on Classics CJ altogether, I didn't like his deco. I just got a RTS Bee and a WFC Cliff for cheap and painted them both. It was one of my first custom projects and it was quite simple, knocked it out in an afternoon. The mold comes apart quite easily, nothing tricky. You don't need to bother punching pins at all. I think it came out pretty well all things considered... although I see right now in the picture where he could use a little touching up.

    Anyway, since that wasn't an option, I just voted for WFC Cliff headswap.

    the only thing stopping me from going with the upgrade kit really is this picture:

    Simply because it shows the VAST difference between the heads, makes me hesitate...

    I'm satisfied with Beelzeboss Devil Horns Head.
