    He doesn't look too bad here. Still going the FT route though.

    That looks surprisingly good. I say surprisingly because I thought the feet would look awful like the do on Bumblebee yet somehow on Cliff they actually look don't look as bad. I'll possibly snag him. Hopefully he comes with some nice weaponry.

    Dude! Me too. CJ was my first Transformer. All I had was three bucks. We’ve come a long way.

    I'd buy it if they sold their Masterpiece line at a loss, but they won't so...

    Such is the way on here...

    Case in point.

    [​IMG]

    Welcome to the big leagues, kid. We have different preferences than yours and you don't like it. That's completely fine. That doesn't mean you can be a dick about it.

    [​IMG]

    Well everything's cleaning up more here so i'm not weeping. Haven't shed a tear to Bee either.

    Agreed. This is what I kinda latched onto as of late. Especially cause the turn of the 80s just also happened to be the time when the 924 was out for a couple years, but then was coming the 944 in '82, same year Micro Change was coming out, to which I believe the 944 could have influenced original production since i'd imagine it had to have been revealed at some auto show in '80 or '81 prior to it's production and release.

    Either way Cliff is looking fantastic and we have Porsche to thank for it in many a way, hahahaha.

    Or that the Cliffjumper we see here isn't completely Choro-Q but the cartoon with a nod here and there to the original MicroChange.

    Headsculpt is great, much like everything else. No oofs in sight.

    100% agree. Absolutely never expected him to be before any of the reveals we've gotten so far. And IIRC Takara dies down during the beginning of the new fiscal year, so any chance he would've had to slimly squeeze in alongside Crosscut and Nightbird are moot. Definitely coming after Shouki, personally expecting between Q3 2022 and Q1 2024. Though thanks to this recent review dump, i'm expecting the earlier than the later.

    The copium is strong with this one...

    35th's over with. Don't keep your hopes so high up. Sovereign is old news, Abaddon is oddly proportioned. The wait will be worth it.

    Probably not. Moreso a nod to the Choro-Q toy.

    [​IMG]

    Yeah I wish it was but it certainly won't. I fully expect somewhere in between $120-130 ($120 being Bee's original price), depending on the accessories since Cliff will certainly have his own fair share of unique ones. Unfortunately the days of a cheap MP seem to be behind us.

    Car God back at it again.

    Even if you were, this would still be top-tier of frontpager post quality. This is what people should be like. So thank you regardless.

    At least in this case it makes more sense than what could have been otherwise.

    As a refresher if you are not aware... the altmode is obviously based on the cartoon, which itself was based off the MicroChange toy, which itself was based on the ChoroQ toys, which were chibified penny racers from the beginning.

    Also... Pissdumper? Not trying to say anything, i'm just legit at a loss.

    I’ve been screaming for Masterpiece Galvatron LONG before that, since at least MP-25. We’re WAY PAST overdue for him, instead getting worthless one-shot Autobots & unnecessary repaints

    So far, I think Takara did a better job here with Cliffjumper than they did on MP-45 Bumblebee. Love the different tones of grey with the red.

    Hahaha, holy shit! That's so good! I needed that. Almost as bad as I need an official MP Jazz.

    Hahahaha, glad to have provided a hearty laugh!

    This was probably my most intense GIF yet. I wish I went back and got a finished timeline shot, but this was it in progress. Mostly masking shots to have Jazz's head obscured behind arms and shit, the rest were his heads animated frame by frame.

    It was a hellish workload, but it seems the payoff was well worth it.

    This is actually a really amazing reengineering of Bee IMHO. I particularly love the arms being tucked fully under the roof now and the new back transformation. Speaking of which, gotta love that moment when someone is "reviewing" a non-final product without instructions or packaging and critiquing their backpack only to then go, "Ohhh!" out loud when they realize they simply had the back mistransformed. :lol
