    the humanoid face looks off, especially since the body is hunched.

    I think the head looks kind of odd as well. It doesn't look bad, though. The paint app's look pretty nice! Any alt mode pics?

    I think he's look better with a more "movie style" head, but anything is better than having a camera for a head like he did before.

    Outstanding paint job by the way..

    Right now the face stands out a bit too much. But I wonder how it would look painted the same gray as the body.

    Because of the weird proportions on this figure, it's tricky making a more humanoid face work. I think the idea is good, but he does seem a bit hunched.

    I am really impressed with the head itself. I never would have thought to attach a humanoid face directly to the camera head, but it's a pretty interesting design. I like the way the swept-back fins on the Swindle head are emphasized; it really evokes a sense of "speed".... which suits Cliffjumper.

    As a recommendation, maybe the head could be mounted on an extending neck joint, so that after transforming, his head could raise a bit and look around more. It would help it seem less recessed in the shoulders.

    It's not the custom head that I have a problem with on this figure, it's the feet. I'm just not a fan of the feet on this mold. That has less to say about Spencer's work here though. I'm in the minority here of actually liking the head he's made :)

    The face on the long head makes it look like Swindle ripped off CJ's face and is wearing it as a mask.

    ... kinda awesome, in a creepy sort of way.
