    I dunno… the Microchange car on which Cliffjumper was based was supposedly a deformed 924 Turbo. That Porsche model debuted in 1978. I always thought Cliff looked more like a 944, which didn’t come out until 1982. I think Tomica’s first Porsche die cast car was released in 1979.

    None of those years provide anniversaries of any significance except for the 944.

    Your prediction got me wondering; what’s next in line to be released in early 2022 for MPs? My brain is drawing a blank, other than Crosscut.

    Nightbird-Feb
    Crosscut-March
    Shouki- June
    If it's anything like 2019 we should get a release every month after Shouki.
    Off months so far: Jan,April, and May

    Thanks Jack, don’t know how I forgot about Nightbird and Shouki. Feb is too long to wait for Toyfair reveals, has Takara ever done a New Year reveal ? I don’t have the mental bandwidth to keep track of these things.

    Skids was announced New Years.Once you allow for the 6-7 month window something is most likely coming pretty soon and at Wonderfest.

    Waaaait a second. Review before announcement?? o_O 

    This has officially entered Twilight Zone territory. :confused: 

    But that said, he looks GREAT and backs of feet don't bother me half as much as Bee's. Maybe yellow makes them more conspicuous. :D

    Except the 924 Carrera GTR (and GT, GTS) lack Cliffjumper’s signature NACA duct, a feature of the 924 Turbo that was removed in favor of a hood scoop for the intercooler. But the front apron, flared fenders, and rear spoiler on CJ’s alt mode are more suggestive of the 924 Carrera GTx models. It’s a bit of a mix, but then, the original toy’s distorted proportions left a lot to the imagination anyway.

    Weird doesn't even begin to accurately describe this. One of those test copies I could see but this is something else when they're at different stages of " doneness".

    That said he looks great.

    Interesting, it looks like maybe he got this as a factory reject due to one of the side mirrors have broken off. Looks REALLY damn good. The “B4” on the leg tells me it’s still a prototype or very early production sample.

    Either a procured early model, or some random CJ being passed off as the MP that hasn't even been announced yet. Either way, I call b.s.

    Kind of funny if they would have been less faithful on his altmode, Bee may have had waist swivel and crunch.
