    Does 'new head' mean the one photographed is just a placeholder? A Cliffjumper to Bumblebee repaint would be unprecedented, no?

    -edit-

    Looks like a yes to the prior.

    Now we can all make our very own yellow Cliffjumper. He needs a name... I always called the red Bumblebee "Ladybug", but this one? Hmmm...

    So Classics BB's head was so good that being on CJ was not good enough. 3rd party groups see this and make a new CJ head to better suit the Clasics CJ look. (AKA a head that doesn't look like BB's)

    That there would be the math of this situation with the problem and the solution, nothing left to answer. So how is it that they are making a CJ head in yellow to fit on BB, replacing an awesome head with a yellow meh CJ head?

    Sometimes, stupid is just stupid.

    I think it's just a ploy to get you to buy better colored weapons for Cliffjumper. Henki Bumblebee would make a better yellow Cliffjumper IMHO. Still, this item is a pass for me.

    That's my primary interest in this set. I can do without the heads, but the guns look nice. This is how they should've looked the first time.

    the dark grey guns are the only thing that's attractive. So basically if they sold light grey guns + bee head no one will want it.

    Yeah, a Goldbug head would have been worth it. United Bumblebee ought to have been Goldbug :(

    they were lazy, period. its a direct repaint that doesn't even make sense. Bee doesn't have that kinda armament or head. Neither does goldbug, so where is their justification?

    It's just a yellow CJ head. Maybe it's supposed to be the "Listen N' Fun" version that came with the cassette tape?

    Aren't the releases of Bumblebee different shades of yellow? I know the RTS one is. Are they going to offer different sets?

    I'll get the set just for the guns. BB's head can stay like it is.

    There was a yellow Cliffjumper released in 1984. I suppose this is some kind of homage to that.

    You guys are right. But if you are honest, Thundershot and Canonball, you will also admit that you may give the group more credit than they deserve ;) 

    I mean, yeah, we are trying to rationalize why they put out such a head, but I think we can all agree its a bit "lazy". They could have redesigned the head even a tad.
