    I don’t understand why people dislike the fake car parts given that the characters on the show were so asymmetrical from one mode to the next anyway.

    Just looking at the photos of each mode next to each other, you see that the robot chest is just a torso colored like a car roof. And if show accuracy isn’t the priority, then FansToys probably isn’t the best route to go.

    At long last. Cliff looks like his toon self and is finally his own man. :cool: 

    They also seem to have captured the face, which has eluded each and every attempt to this point, tbh.

    Some Chinese websites had them up since 2019, but beyond that, not what I saw.

    So excited! I don't think any other 3p nailed him yet. Leave it to FT. Can't wait!

    Looks awesome in both modes. But gawd, how many days apart do I need to be glued to my computer to pre order all the FT figures?

    Great bot mode, terrible looking alt mode. Should have stuck to the more realistic vehicle. Certainly not a figure worth waisting hours or even weeks of my life to try and get a preorder.

    Tried to get the Autobot symbol on there but it was a real journey that seemed to never get anywhere.

    I like the figure a lot (both modes) but you bring up a good point. Has FT gone two different ways with their minbots so far? Does their Cliffhanger fit in with Brawn and Beachcomber in car mode? I don't think there is a perfect mode that can appease all fans for Cliffjumper.

    The only thing that irks me is that I still use v1 Mp Bumblebee, so these two will look odd together. Oh well!

    Yes! This would be superb, wish I could like it more than once.

    There are 3 perfectly appropriate alternatives to this, or do you have to buy Fanstoys even if it doesn't suit you?
