    A while back, thielmj asked for volunteers to make customs for a charity auction he was putting together in honor of the family members he lost in a tragic accident. I was more than willing to help out. He had asked for a Shattered Glass theme and, since I had never seen a Shattered Glass Cliffjumper, that was my choice. Dude, I hope you like it, and I hop it help bring in the bidders,

    Reading up on the character, I found it funny that in both the Prime and Shattered Glass story lines, Cliffjumper ends up a zombie! Well, this version has been spared that fate.

    I base coated him in flat black, then added layers of HOK Bright Blue, followed by HOK Transparent Oriental Blue, and finally, a clear gloss coat. Hi details are done in Testors Model Masters Enamels. Since the SG Cliffjumper was a sniper, this guy needed a rifle. The sniper rifle was made from TF Prime RiD Arcee's blaster with a custom barrel added. The figure had a few "Mech-Tech" ports on him that needed some work. The one in the roof was filled in but, the one on the fender I left alone. Instead, I inserted a flat pin in it to simulate the fuel door. I had a lot of fun with this character and hope to work on him again.

    Again, thielmj, I hope you like him.

    Thanks, guys. However, it's not purple. He's a very deep midnight blue.

    Another fantastic repaint for PRiD CJ. Gotta admit, that mold looks better each time I see these sorts of repaints.

    Thanks, guys! As much fun as this character is, I'm surprised he's not done more often.
