    TF: Prime Cliffjumper blasters
    Version 2.0
    Update June 18, 2012


    [​IMG]

    This is a pair of blasters for TF: Prime RID Cliffjumper! I know everybody is sore that the stock figure
    does not come with his distinctive, awesome looking tri-barrelled blasters.
    This is something to help ease the pain!

    Edit: I would be remiss if I did not mention knyghtmare2021 of TFW2005.com helped me test out
    the first set of blasters and provided invaluable feedback. Thanks man!

    These blasters were made public a few weeks ago, but it is only now I managed to snap a few pictures of them.
    (Also, because I didn't have an RID Cliff to pose them with until I found one on discount. Whoopie!)

    [​IMG]

    Your mileage may vary with the handle tightness. The blasters were loose
    on the right hand of my figure, but were fine on the left, so I suspect
    the problem is with the figure itself. Line the loose fist with super glue; it helps tighten the grip.

    Comparison shot.

    RID Cliff's arms are really too long for a blaster design like this, but it looks pretty good
    once you get used to it. And yes, FE Cliffjumper can also use these blasters
    (and he looks awesome with them) but why would you do that? :lol

    Alt mode.

    Sigh...you know what? I would rather have Hasbro give Cliff a second peg hole
    on the left side of his figure than on his roof. Or maybe have all three in.
    At least you can mount the blasters on both sides and have them symmetrical.
    Well, you work with what you have, I guess.

    Comments, critique much appreciated!! Hope you guys like the pretty pictures!

    That's a great design, and works well with the figure. I'm glad you made it long enough to peg into the alt mode as well.

    They have white, black, red, and purple in the "WSF" type plastic. Black and White in the "Detail" plastic, and for any of the high detail plastics you have to settle for clear or frosted. To change the color/detail/and plastic type click on the drop down box just above the "add to cart" button.

    Its alright though, shapeways plastic is extremely easy to dye using ordinary clothing dye "RIT Dye". I believe there is some tutorials on how to do it on here. :D
