    I couldn't have an Animated Bumblebee without a Cliffjumper! So I thought I'd show you guys what the result is. I gave him a regular car alt-mode. I wanted it to be different than Bumblebee's.

    - Repainted everything
    - Re-sculpted the head
    - Removed the siren
    - Fixed his stingers

    I also included a screen cap from the cartoon for comparison.

    Thanks for looking and comments are welcomed! :D

    Top notch man, top notch. I do have a nit-pick though. hehehe the screencap shows the head goes outward, then tapers back in, and yours doesn't do that. While, this isn't my actual nitpick, its leads-in to it: The dark paint ap on the new molding makes it look like BB until you look harder and realize there's black stuff on the sides, as the red line is identical. If the head had the same taper of the screen-cap, I don't think that would be the case, as it isn't in the screen-cap itself.

    That looks awesome. I hope when hasbro does this as a repaint they make his head close to what you've done. The cartoon version had a way bigger chin, which I don't like. Maybe to set him apart more from ol BB paint all the black grey instead

    Either way it's super clean nice work! Good job

    Thanks guys for all the nice and constructive comments!

    About the head, I totally know what you mean. However, the head was finished long before that episode [showing cliffjumper] aired. When I saw it in the ep, I too noticed the head was different with the giant chin and everything. The way I was looking at it though, is that is was only the drawing that was exaggerated. I imagined if Hasbro ever released a 'jumper fig, he wouldn't possibly have a head shaped like it was [in the cartoon]. So I went with what I had already sculpted and didn't modify it. I like the sculpt I did, but you're absolutely right in the fact that it's not like what was shown. Oh well. Maybe Hasbro *will* do a head that resembles the one in the show. I'd rather have something different than a red bumblebee head or different from what I did. We'll have to wait and see. Cause you know he's coming :D
