    Admit it, we are all here to see pictures. So without going into alot of words, here goes.

    Nice car. Some American muscle car.
    Obligatory 3/4 angle shots.

    Good? Ok, here is the transformation.

    Split the sides ala ROTF Barricade.
    [​IMG]

    Fold all the way down.
    [​IMG]

    Flip up the feet.
    [​IMG]

    Flip down the blue piece that is part of the window
    [​IMG]

    Fold up the lower halves, and before you do that straighten the knees.
    [​IMG]

    See that crotchpiece? Good, flip it up
    [​IMG]

    Twist the upper half 180 degrees
    [​IMG]

    Should look like this
    [​IMG]

    Split the back part of the car
    [​IMG]

    Flip up the back of the car - Repeat on the other side
    [​IMG]

    Pull out the arms - do it for both sides
    [​IMG]

    Press the centerpiece on to the hood so it split further, but it always closes back
    [​IMG]

    Fold up the other part of the car to form the arms
    [​IMG]

    Lift up the head
    [​IMG]

    See the 2 pieces there? Fold it down
    [​IMG]

    Take the horn on the hood and fold it up
    [​IMG]

    Push down the headlights to the front to complete the bulk of the front
    [​IMG]

    Push down the red tab at the back to complete the transformation
    [​IMG]

    Verdict?
    Very well thought out transformation and I am glad that this is a Cliffjumper that is not a repaint from Bumblebee.
    The paint and plastic gels together and there are no bleeding and the colors are consistent.

    [​IMG]

    He is quote poseable and fun to fiddle with.
    [​IMG]

    Both his hands can flip out his blasters
    [​IMG]

    The headsculpt is awesome and very faithful to the CGI/Animation
    [​IMG]

    I like him and he oozes charm and character. Conclusion? Get him. :D 

    Mods, if there is already another pictorial review, please merge.

    Here are some random pics
    "I am no repaint this time, Bumbles..."
    [​IMG]

    Action shot.

    i watched the video review from not long ago and it didnt impress me as much as this did, he looks like a great figure

    and to my knowledge this is one of the only times cliffjumper has got his own mold and was not just a repaint of bumblebee

    he looks great as do a lot of the toys from this line so far (i enjoy the complex transformations like we saw from the ROTF line and that seembed to be lacking from the DOTM line)

    Okay, yeah, that looks awesome. That's two non-Cyberverse Prime toys on the list for me.

    Man, Cliff, the Bulkster, Arcee and the Eradicon look like the winners of the preview line. I'm gonna have to ask for these guys (and girl) for Christmas, and maybe see about Voyager Optimus, Deluxe Bumblebee and Starscream.

    The Diamond Select bust, too, if you want to get technical.

    That transformation is simpler than I expected, but very clever.

    That's pretty dang impressive, pity the head is so doofy. :( 

    I haven't heard, how do the Prime deluxes scale, are they more "normal" or are they smaller ala the DOTM Deluxes.

    awesome, looks good, but since they're doing 2 Cliffjumper molds, I may wait and get the 2nd version of CJ, and buy the Terrorcon version of this mold...
