Well worth it. You're doing the lord's work.
It\'s time for another Dinobot.....SNARL!!!!
Cool, but does this one have a splitting-in-two feature? Asking for a friend
I'm not that much of a fan of the Penny Racer alt mode but ey, we already have X-Transbots Toro as a more realistic take on him, so as far as diversifying the market for MP Cliffjumpers goes, this does feel like the best design choice they could have picked. Looks pretty cool overall!
I actually prefer Toro, because I want a realistic Porche. I can't tell what that squished thing is, even if the cartoon looked like that. MP45 is OK with me, however, since you can tell what he's supposed to be, and in my opinion, the old Beetles were ugly. I think the chibi one kinda looks like this:
Yeah, I'm on the fence no longer. I can honestly live with the feet being imperfect. They're not as intrusive as Bees and don't change the fact the face sculpt is better than any 3P effort to date. Overall, this is by far the most a CJ sculpt has resembled his anime look .... well, ever.
P.S: Fixed it @darkeros, lol.
How can they get the facesculpt for Cliff so dead on and yet continously throw out terrible 'Bee faces? I'm not in for this anyway as I though 'Bee was utter garbage and resold him, but it's frustrating that Takara is so hit and miss on the basics. Were that face on a different design, I'd be in.
That’s fine for you. I’m only interested in CJ as a red Penny Racer shape.
Wow, this looks so much better than bee.
CJ got me like Rick James
i never realized how much i hate looking at other peoples hands
*cracks knuckles* ahem *inhales*
if they're trying to go for cartoon accuracy, they failed MISERABLY. while yes, the sculpting may be correct, but the proportions are WAY off, as the torso and legs are too elongated, arms are too stubby, and the head barely resembles the sunbow animation model.
I'm using these two images as a frame of reference, but these two images show what cliffjumper is supposed to look like overall.
when comparing it to the masterpiece version, the only thing that's accurate is the lower legs, as the thighs are way too thin, the waist is sitting way too low, but the shoulders I'm kind of okay with, as they slightly improve the proportions. the face is an egregious error, as it loses the charm that cliffjumper had in the show, and makes him look like a different character and the horns are in the wrong place and are in the wrong size.
Someone woke up this morning and chose violence against a toy.
That being said, he looks pretty good compared to those “images”
Dont know what youre looking at but...ok smh.
I couldn't agree more with you, it looks flat out hideous. The arms are way too stubby, the legs are too elongated and flare out too much at the bottom and they eyes.....what's up with the 'Donna Mills' eye shadow. MEH! Just when you thought TT had gotten their groove back with the fantastic MP-52 mold and then they release a dud, like this, wow, it's actually incredible. Every time I see this mold and I see all the so far glowing reception, I'm baffled, I mean people actually want a repaint of this
...with a different colour scheme and new face sculpt????
First and foremost...
A genuine word of advice to you and everyone else who is gonna link images from Wikia/Fandom (God knows why because we have a dedicated independent Transformers Wiki that anything on Wikia cannot hold a candle to in the slightest).
If you are going to link Wikia/Fandom images, do both yourself and everyone else a favor and remove the last section of the URL. The images do not open correctly when you post the full link.
I did such above, and I highly suggest you follow suit for everyone else's sake.
Aside from that. Beyond laughable. Cliffjumper is dead-on to the point where I couldn't even dare to comprehend where in the hell this argument even came from.
I mean what can I say? Cliffjumper's a Masterpiece!
Stay in your lane, Siege Crosshairs.
I have to thank you for this lovely screen grab of Cliffjumper. It looks so damn awesome, I’m making it my background/wallpaper. …umm, I forgot what your original point was?
the fanstoys version looks to be more cartoon accurate, with better proportions and sculpting in general. the only thing REALLY holding this figure back is the face, as it's kinda lacking in accuracy when compared to the rest of the figure
the X transbots version is pretty accurate, as is for most of X transbots figures, but it has quite a backpack and the alt mode is realistic, rather than the squishmobile that he was in the cartoon
the ocular max hellion has the one of the best face sculpts out of all of them, but the proportions in the torso are very odd to say the least
honestly, I wish fanstoys would use a similar head sculpt to ocular max, then it would be the most cartoon accurate cliffjumper ever.
