    Is the plate behind their heads smaller, or is their face sculpt a little bigger?

    Megatron or Jazz, that would be something where I'd buy another of these articulated bricks :D  But Bee and CJ... easy pass.

    Do they have die-cast? I wonder if they'll roll like the originals?

    So they both come with rubsigns as standard, the Autobot logos we see are stickers above them? Or else the rubsigns are somewhere else. Also, Bumblebee comes with that rectangular Microchange sticker (@ambitron will be thrilled!). Both the small pistols can store in their car modes.

    It's $34 CAD but there will most likely be a 20% or more pre-order discount as usual so it will be less than that.

    I'm guessing yes, to allow the turning heads.

    Lost dreams are linked across time!
    A virtual reprint version of the "Missing Link" series that may have existed in that era. Cliff, who has a hot-blooded personality, appears in the fourth installment.
    What if the first-generation Cliff was a fully poseable model?It has been commercialized with a completely new design while retaining the original size, texture, and nostalgia!

    The ideal Cliff toy has been released, while following the original Cliff toy in terms of size, deformation pattern, and basic structure using some die-cast alloys, while updating the joint movement for posing and the gimmicks depicted in the anime.
    Even the compact box-shaped packaging and Styrofoam tray pay homage to the era, and even more than the reprint version, it brings back the excitement of opening a Transformers product in the 1980s.
    Like Bumble, Cliff belongs to the small Transformers "Minibot Army" and has shown impressive success through numerous episodes.
    Although the product has almost the same transformation system as Bumble, approximately 80% of the main body is specially designed to reproduce the detailed differences from Bumble.
    Each joint, which had limited posing in products at the time, has been changed to movable, allowing you to pose freely.
    A newly modeled photon rifle with plating specifications is included as a reproduction from the anime scene.
    In car mode, it can be stored inside.
    Also included is a new model of the plated bazooka used in the first episode of the first anime when they launched a surprise attack on the Decepticon army that was building their base.
    The familiar "secret emblem" is also attached to the robot body, and when you warm it with your finger, the army mark will appear.
    A foil sticker with the Cybertron mark is included that the user can attach as desired.
    A joint hole for a stand (sold separately) can be added to the back of the cliff to display it in action poses.
    The package illustration is a new one inspired by the time, and a collection card featuring the same illustration is also included.
    (Total height in robot mode: 76mm)

    [Set contents] Cliff body (1), photon rifle (1), bazooka (1), collection card (1), sticker (1), instruction manual (1),

    Plate is a little smaller and the heads/faces seem to protrude just a little further out. Compare the neck area for the toy Bumblebee and ML Bumblebee.
