    Cliffjumper looks like a lot of fun. I love his big bazooka and sassy look.

    probably because the desired minibots scale is now outside the price cost/range of existing classes...

    I'd be perfectly fine with new Minibots that aren't Legends size...

    That being said, I need to track down a Generations Warpath at some point.

    The entire hood/front end is one solid piece. You can see that he has clear headlights in that one solid piece, with no separation lines to indicate they are separate pieces stuck into the bumper. So, the hood has to be painted.

    it would be a hoot if the inevitable Bumblebee ends up being a yellow version of this Cliffjumper...they probably won't be doing a VW as there aren't licensed vehicles in this line, so maybe (probably) they swap the head and call it a day?

    At first I thought the same thing but after a closer look I don't know about that.

    If you look at Ironhide's chest/torso in that picture with CJ it's not transformed right. It's supposed to be lifted up and at an angle. I would've shown my Ironhide but it has 3P leg extenders. But looking at Ratchet's torso you should be able to see the difference in transformation.

    Sure CJ is still a little taller than TR Bee but not by much.

    Yup. It has been said since ER was revealed that Cliffjumper has MP Bumblebee 1.0's engineering. At $20 retail, it's a steal IMHO.

    The "scale" of the line is a unified 1/35 robot mode scale. And since the Legends price point is taken up by Micromasters and cassette bots, the Minibots get thrown in at Deluxe.

    But as stated, CJ has MP-level engineering, sooo... :<

    Your Transformers are not more important than my Transformers.

    I mean in all fairness, Cliffjumper's pretty tiny, the large weapon helps justify his price a bit at least.

    Does anyone else notice the mismatched colors on the Hoist renders?

    I'm totally fine with a new minibots not using minibot scale as long as they cover the missing minibots and the ones that were Ill fitting repiants.

    Pipes, Warpath, Huffer, Glyph

    Still want BB

    Maybe we can get Cosmos again?

    The only renders are those on the back of the boxes. The rest of the images are photos of the actual toy.
    And unless a figure is entirely painted, paint and plastic are never going to match in color.

    Oh man, if we get an official fat Cosmos, especially with WFC gimmickry, I'll be in heaven. 5mm ports on the bottom to mount weapons, and 3mm blast posts on the top to mount phaser fire. All he'd need is a tractor beam effects parts attachment to abduct people.

    Oh yes.

    Oh. Welp, I had a feeling a crappy weapon mode would be included. It's not the end of the world. They do look pretty underwhelming though, not gonna lie.

    I'm still getting them though.

    Hoist has always been a medic, I like how the TFwiki puts it: "If Ratchet is the Autobots' chief surgeon, then Hoist is their family doctor. Everyone reports to Hoist for routine check-ups and maintenance, no exceptions! A jovial, friendly robot, the up-beat Hoist enjoys his job and it shows."

    Also I think everyone is freaking out about Cliffjumper's size. He's probably going to be about the size of the 2006 classics Bumblebee/Cliffjumper mold. Only instead of that jetski/jetpack thing, he's going to come with a huge cannon. This is the best picture I could find as a size comparison, but ER Cliffjumper is going to be larger than a legends class figure.

    Instead of being oversized as you suggest, he's actually the perfect Minibot height. He comes up to about mid-chest on Wheeljack.
