    I hope this is the right place for this thread, if not I apologize.

    A few fellow board members and myself were able to score the much coveted Cliffjumper conversion kit for a mere fraction of the going Ebay rate which is in the $150-$300+ range.

    In fact, we all paid a mere $60 shipped to the U.S. per kit. :cool: 

    Here are some preliminary pics, I will be updating the pics as I get the kit assembled:

    For a huge Cliffjumper fan like myself, this is all kinds of awesome!!

    That's tremendously impressive.

    It really captures the essence of Cliffjumper's character.

    Yes, the gun stand flips down in the front so Cliffjumper can get Megatron dead-center in his view-finder:

    yea... and still miss? :lol 

    the set looks nice, but i would want to get it for just the guns...

    but if i was going to do that, i think i would be better off just buying g1 guns... any would work fine lol.

    Mr Maniac, how do you attach the head? Don't you have to use some type of glue?

    Maybe the seller would consider lowering the price on a group buy
