    I get what you mean, i'm personally fine with the penny racer Porsche as it works right alongside MP-45 for me, that is until we get a new Bee that doesn't end up with crushed feet and a gigantic backpack, haha.

    I'm definitely going in on this right on PO, aside from Perceptor, Cliff has been my most wanted FT figure for a good while since we saw the initial silhouettes once Seaspray 2.0 was initially shown off.

    No proper POs domestically yet but if you shop with Baba, he's posted preliminary deposits, though i'm not certain on whether or not they're in stock or sold out.

    Why don't the people asking if it's available or sold out yet go check out the sites that sell them? Never understand why they ask and then wait for responses. Just go check!

    Do you hate everything? I literally don't think I've seen a positive post from you.

    It’s always a choice between ‘fake parts’ and ‘terrible looking in at least one mode’ and fake parts is always the right answer!

    This looks perfect as a toon aesthetic Cliffjumper. Holy cow.

    So preorders for this may be going up soon... did they even put up Trailbreaker preorders yet at Western retailers? Still kinda iffy on him, but Fanstoys has been outputting a LOT of new images recently and I definitely need to get in on this guy.

    Pre-orders for XTB Toro and MMC Hellion. Both of which are available for pre-order right now.

    Yes, I hate everything.

    I literally commented on how the bot mode looks great, just that the car isn’t good and I’d rather not spend time PO’ing it. I love how when I comment positive things everyone is asleep or ignores the posts, but as soon as I say something negative there’s a sudden uproar and everyone starts whining about my posts.

    Because it's a massive cheat.

    Also in my case I like GoBots and they were always more honest. I would not want a Leader-1 with a fake cockpit either.

    Was more making a general comment. Many say it seriously.

    I'm not a fan of the face car top/chest but if it looks good in both modes I guess it is a justifiable compromise. It is better looking than the pot belly of the takara version 1 bumblebee.

    I just hope the US retailers send out a tweet this time, unlike Acoustic Wave, giving us a chance to pre-order him.

    I think we're a ways off of US preorders. Usually we don't see those until we get promo shots of the finished bot.

    I prefer CJ to have rubber tires. XTB should take note.

    Glad I held off on both Toro and Hellion and got my PO with baba last year. Now just need to wait for this guy to show up. Not perfect, but better than the others out there right now and a bit better than MP-45 in my opinion. I love the look of MP-45 front-on, but he gets pretty ugly for my taste from the sides and back. This Cliffjumper isn't perfect, but the best shot I've seen so far.

    Arguably the most impossible alt mode to re-create. Still think it looks rad. Fingers crossed his popularity won't increase the price
