    The Rock Shooter head
    Version 1.0
    Update April 2, 2012

    You know, sometimes things don't work out smoothly on the business side and you have a figure that doesn't match
    what the media portrays. It's not the first time, and it sure won't be the last. However, thank technology that we can
    easily do replacements!

    This Rock Shooter head is meant to replace the one of deluxe Generations Cliffjumper. It's meant to be as accurate as
    possible to the game version, which was originally obviously inspired by the Cliffjumper appearance in Transformers
    Prime. In fact, it is THE MOST electrifyingly accurate head in the history of bot-kind!

    [​IMG]

    Comparison with FE Cliffjumper. Personally, I really like the cool attitude of the new head. He looks like he can do a
    Rock Bottom on the buncha Decepticons. I know. I know. I should have painted it to get the full effect...

    Alt mode. It fits.

    Rock Shooter Head on Shapeways

    In response to a special request, I'll be putting up this model in 2 separate entries as well,
    so that you can get them in different materials (WSF face, FUD eyes, for instance).
    Part A
    Part B


    Assembly Instructions

    [​IMG]

    Very simple. The head comes in 2 pieces; a headpiece and a light pipe piece. After doing all your sanding, painting and
    what not, insert the lightpipe at the back and plug the whole head onto Cliffjumper's neck balljoint. The light pipe has a
    peg to ensure that it will be held in place. No adhesives or screws needed.


    Conclusion

    You know what? This is what I think a good Shapeways add-on should be. Small, but reliable and effective pieces when
    added to figures makes them look much much better. This was just a idea I got one day and I rolled with it, and I'm
    loving the result. Now I'm just waiting for *some of you guys* to paint that up and make FOC Cliffjumper a reality.
    Make it happen!

    Oooh I really like this. Quick question, is it compatible with FE Cliffjumper, its superior to that head, and if I every manage to get my hands on a FE Jumper, I'd like to give him a head the peoples champion could be proud of.

    Oh no...they are not compatible as the neck balljoints are different diameters...I'm also not sure if the FE transformation will work with the new head; never did test it.

    Hey Ariel!
    Your designs are great. They fit. They look fine.

    Which application do you use to create them?

    Nice work. Although I don't like the WFC CJ mold, your head is beautiful. Hope to see more of these from you.

    It's in Frosted Ultra Detail. It's the only material I know so far that can capture all the detail shown here. Hope this helps!

    Hi Ariel, I was wondering if it would be possible to make this head fit a FE Cliffjumper toy and look even more like the TFP head. My son just got the FE zombie Cliffjumper and would like to make it look like a clean Cliffjumper...

    Hmm...it's a curious request. I basically read it as you need a stock FE Cliffjumper head, basically?
