    Ugh. Sorry but customizing the Transformers Prime RID figures are like polishing a turd. I don't see myself doing much more of these. They feel so cheap I feel like I'm going to break them in the middle of painting them.

    I filled in the horrible mech tech holes with putty then gave the figure a full repaint. I thought it would make it look better. It does look nicer but I still cannot stand the arms and the gears behind the head. I like the car mode and how the chest and legs look but arms just ruin it. And with that, here is Cliffjumper. YAY!

    I like how you covered the peg hole on the alt mode.

    It would be nice if they didn't do that at all.

    I was a bit ambiguous about thes prime figures but the few I have gotten (wheeljack, cliffjumper, Optimus) are pretty cool. Megatron and Bumblebee went imediately into my scraps box!! Have to say though, this Cliffy looks fantastic!!!

    totally agree with u man. FE CJ is much better, still, u make the RID CJ much much better than himself.

    luv the car mode. holes make it sick XP~

    Honestly, I think this custom looks way better than the FE figure, so...


    I'd say the turd myth is busted :)

    Hopefully, they will make a 3rd mold that uses the legs like this with the arms of the FE

    Looks better than the stock but as you say, the arms really do ruin the figure, maybe if repainted as a figure that used parts like that it wouldn't feel so bad, For example with a little resculpting of the head and chest I could see a pretty good Prime Nightbeat coming out of this guy.

    This looks sweet!

    I like Cliff's figure. I was running from toy store to toy store to find him. It's not the figure itself that turned me off buying him, it's that he's so darn small (especially given that he's suppossed to be a Challenger or Grand Torino or something similar...those cars are big).

    Hell I think I may be the only person who prefers the PRID CJ compared to the FE CJ I like the over all look with the PRID and I don't care that he cheats the chest the only thing Id have to say that I don't like with the mild is the battle cry face. You really brought out the awesomeness in this mold I'll have to paint mine when I get around to buying one waiting for a sale lol.

    Other than the smaller size, what kills this figure are the arms and mech tech holes. Don't really care for the fake chest but it does look nicer than the FE. The back kibble looks nicer on this one too. No horns on the ass. I like the car mode of the FE and the arms. I really do hope Hasbro can make a better version that takes the best of both versions.
