Transformers Prime Japan Arms Micron Terrorcon Cliffjumper Images

The Robochris Rakutan store has updated with some new images of Transformers Prime Japan Arms Micron Terrorcon Cliffjumper. The new images show that Terrorcon Cliffjumper has gone for a completely purple "Dark Energon" deco, rather than the red deco with purple Dark Energon "burn" deco. There's also some images of his Arms Micron partner, a Revenge of the Fallen Ravage style animal partner that turns into a chainsaw.

There are also some images on the page for Voyager Class Starscream's Arms Micron partner - a spy plane that looks like it turns into some kind of double pronged blade.

I..wha? Why did they make him completely blue?
seekerblackout
Wha? Is this what, even don't I...
Cheem The Rup
Zombie version (from the very first episode) perhaps ?
Stepper
Yah,after he was being injected of the Unicron blood
Peaugh
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Also, looks like the AM Voyager Starscream gets a Soundwave minicon.
miscreant
Blue = no sale.
Ellamin
Neat, I like the blue AM FE cliffy mold.
hardreturn
Huh
xion14
I got a good laugh seeing this. Fueling the flames.
Feralstorm
Cliffy of the Dead falls into "I'm not sure what they're thinking" territory.

But hey, Voyager Starscream gets his very own Silverhawks bird weapon!

Whilst it's not particularly accurate (at all), I actually quite like the finished result...
Oracle_Aesir
I shall call him...Freeway!

Ditto.

Takara's bizarre treatment of Prime continues...
GrimlockAutobot
Really Takara?

Really?

REALLY!!??

Blue? What the fuck were you thinking?? I can hear the preorders cancelling now.

So much for Takara having "Oh EMMM GEEE THE BEST decos EVARZ". They REALLY REALLY dropped the ball on the TF Prime line.
mrgalvaprime
I.......like it
xanthax
This was my last takara prime toy I had on preorder. I am totally not feeling that blue. Not sure if I'll keep it now.
Oracle_Aesir
Of course..now if I get this guy I'll be forced to call him Freeway or something, meaning I'd have to find the FE version of Zombie Cliff so I can have the zombie I've wanted for like a year now

FE Terrorcon (Zombie) Cliffjumper will not be coming out at all....it has been completely cancelled.

So it's Takara Terrorcon Smurfjumper or nothing now....which REALLY sucks.
GrimlockAutobot
Smurfjumper?

Cliffjumper Smurf?

Papa Smurfjumper?

Zombie Smurf?

Terrorcon Smurf?

I thought it was already out in Canada or something?

Oh well if it isn't then I'll just get Zombie Freeway Cliff instead
Transformed
Wow, blue was...unexpected. Not horrible, but I was expected the one that was shown earlier. I guess Hasbro's version will be the cartoon accurate one, huh?
Gilgamesh
I wonder if they'll bastardize the animated series too like with Beast Wars.

Nope. We didn't see any Hasbro test shots either.

..........Yeah...sure it will....

Seems more like purple to me, Dark Energon infused deco. Looks okay to me - I think the purple / blue looks very nice, especially if the finished version looks so shiny (it probably won't though)
Shatterpoint
Dammit Takara.

*cancels pre-order*
process
Methinks Takara did it to distance it from the regular deco/mold. My impression is that Takara doesn't do repaints per se, unless it's character-specific like Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen.
Deceptigtar
well this sucks.
Gaokaiser
Wow,wow...really "zombie" colour!!

I buy him as SG Cliffjumper!
Insane Galvatron
Maybe they got confused and thought "terrorcon" meant "vehicon" and painted him accordingly? I think he'll look good in the middle of a vehicon army.
WhiteMocha
I dunno, screen-accuracy aside, this actually makes me more interested in it. I hadn't really planned to get one before, but giving it a completely new color scheme makes it more tempting.

The little faux-Ravage is a selling point as well. Takara really went pleasantly bonkers with these minicons. I'm not sure what their mission statement was for the line, but it is producing some interesting results.

On the plus-side for those disappointed at not getting a screen-accurate Zombiejumper, it would probably be a pretty easy custom to make oneself. Just take one of the pre-existing red Cliffjumpers, clip off a horn, add some burns and damage, and there you have it.

Actually, given that SG Cliffjumper is both dark blue AND a slavering zombie, that makes perfect sense. Makes me almost wonder if it was deliberate.
DPrime
Oh, for f's sake.

WTF, Takara? You show us one deco, we preorder, then do a complete 360 like this?

I - JUST - preordered this, because unlike some of the other AM series figures (Arcee, Breakdown, Knockout, etc.) we had actually seen decent pics of this. And now they do this.

People have no problem buying non-show/accurate half-clear/clear/black/whatever version of any toy yet they freak out about a blue Cliffy?

The FE line was cancelled in the USA...there won't be a USA edition of Terrorcon Cliffjumper....that we know of.
ArceeMe
Do you guys not understand why they made him that color? According to the world of toys, bluish(on the verge of going into purple) is considered "zombie-like" also been had injecting dark energon into him helped with the color scheme. I don't get why everyone has an issue with this?! XD Sure its not a RED Cliffjumper with a "zombie face" and some battle damage to go along side of it, but its STILL a guy to add to your collection of Prime toys correct? I personally feel the color scheme will perfectly go along side my other Prime series on my shelf showing that he IS an "unded figure" I guess I just don't see the need for yet another cliffjumper that's RED sitting next to my cliffjumper thats already red. Diversity? anyone? ^.^
zannus
Maybe it's cause I just woke up, but the added minicon ports on the back kinda made me think of the back of the delorean (those black exhaust ports) from Back to the Future. The added ports on this come off better integrated, especially the one on the hood, making me think its a scoop rather then a block stuck onto it.
My urge to order this has risen.

You do realize that you said the words "blue" and "cliffjumper" together right?

I think we're so pissed because the FE version was cancelled and this was our only way to get a screen accurate version of Zombie Cliffjumper.

When original pics came out he was red. Fans preordered and then Takara threw us a curveball. Combine that with the fact that Takara is uncharacteristically screwing up the decos on these figures (generally they have better paint schemes than Hasbro) and people are a little shocked and frustrated.

The toyline for one of the best TF shows in recent history is getting shafted by both Hasbro and Takara.

Apparently he's going to be purple and not blue. I understand why they did this. He would be too close to the deco of the regular-release Cliffjumper. Either way, it sucks!!

I was gonna use this guy over my FE and RID Cliffjumpers as my display piece. It obviously isn't going to workout that way. While it is disappointing, I do enjoy the blue deco. I wish we could have both.

This.

Just looks nice.

And the extra AM ports actually look pretty okay. The one on the hood looks like an engine block, and the ones in the rear look like spoiler mounts.

I think for this will almost be like a transtector... for mini-Ravage. He controls the deactivated body. And I like that the zombie comes with a double chainsaw.
deathonacracker
i canceled my FE cliff for this one because i already had the RID version and still wanted the FE mold.... had i known they were going to change his color i would have just stuck with the original....


now i have to decide if im going to keep this one or cancel for Takara Ratchet....

How can you assume these are the same people?

I'm sure some people will have no problem buying this, but some of us preordered one thing, and now it looks like we'll be getting something completely different. Nothing wrong with getting a little upset at that sort of thing. We're basically talking about false advertising here, through no fault of the online dealers of course.

I had mine preordered with Robotkingdom - not sure what their cancellation policy/process is like. Guess I'll find out.

Heehee...

The CIB/CIR/CIP debate starts now!!!
(blue, red, purple....or whatever order you want it to be)

I guess I should bought a couple more regular red Cliffy to make my own "Zombie Cliffjumper".
:s

Blue Cliffjumper is cool if you were expecting a shattered glass figure and not a show accurate rendition of Zombie Ciffjumper.

(I.E. it's the exact opposite of what we thought we were getting.)

Well, in my case, they GAIN a pre-order. Love the blue/purple color.
