    It's time for another look at the Generations Asia Exclusive / China Import Deluxe assortment, and getting the TFW gallery treatment today is Cliffjumper! Cliffjumper here is one of two figures within the Generations Asia Exclusive assortment whose toys were taken from the Transformers Prime first edition series and given new, Generation 1 styled heads (the other is Brawn, from Bulkhead). It's a crazy idea given how distinctive the Transformers Prime designs are, but sometimes, crazy works, and in this case, it most certainly does. This new Generations Cliffjumper boasts a fantastic sheen on his red plastic, a nice, deep and shiny shade, and the new head manages to fit in with the Transformers Prime body design while still being distinctively Generation 1. My only criticism is he really needs a handgun to further set himself apart from the Prime version of the character.

    All things considered, he is probably the least exciting of the four in the assortment, but he does not deserve to be overlooked by any means - especially if you have not been lucky enough to pick up a version of this particular toy before now.

    Open the link below and check out the gallery:

    I also find that this version of Cliffjumper fits rather nicely with the Alternity Cliffjumper - almost like this could be the Cliffjumper who eventually goes on to join the Protectors in Alternity?

    Why are these listed as ("Asia Exclusive) when Hasbro said we ARE getting them? The ("Asia Exclusive") would be the Chinese packaging that we saw pics of, would it not?

    I really can't see that head on that body, it feels so awkward. Like someone hiding their head in their shirt.

    Gaaaaaaaaaaah, I'm so on the fence with this one.

    Because even Hasbro listed them as Asian exclusives at SDCC, IIRC.

    I like it and ordered it. Interesting take on CJ.

    Gotta love this mold as I now own 5 different versions of it now.

    Don't like the head/body combo, looks too out of proportion.

    Hasbro was calling them "China Import", but for the sake of keeping them easy to identify (namely to avoid confusion with the other Generations Swerve) I figured stick with what the fandom's been calling them the whole time since they were revealed.

    I'm not entirely sure how well I like the Classics-styled head on this body, but since I absolutely hate the normal Prime Cliffjumper head (I still haven't gotten over the lack of noses on Prime TFs), since this will be the easiest way to get a normal FE Cliffjumper, and since I'd put it with my Classics anyway because I'm not collecting many Prime figures, I'll probably get it. I do like the rest of the mold.

    Nice shots, Sol! I agree that he would really benefit from a gun of some sort. I gave him DotM Bumblebee's cannon, and it works pretty well for me.

    Example from Cliff's feedback thread:

    He was my least anticipated figure from the four, but after having him in hand, he's easily my favorite.

    Wow, I'm not super crazy about the head sculpt, but it works quite a bit better than i thought, he doesn't look totally out of place with BB...

    Sorry, but Prime and Movie toys with G1 heads don't come anywhere close to working whatsoever.

    Cliff jumper works better than Megatron, Springer and Brawn though.

    I can't wait to get this guy! His headsculpt is still a bit funky though.

    Too bad the Asia exclusives are TRU exclusives. The closest near me is 25 minutes away and poorly stocked.

    1) FE CJ
    2) AM Terrorcon CJ
    3) SDCC Rust in Peace CJ
    4) GDO (this one)
    5) ....???

    What's the fifth use of this mold. Not calling you out, I just can't think of it and now it's bugging me.

    As for the figure itself... I am patiently waiting for RK to get in the Rage if Herc set in so my order with the case of GDOs gets sent. I admit it's imperfect to use a G1 head on this mold, but those pics make it look a lot better than I had anticipated.

    Maybe counting both Takara and Hasbro FEs?
