    So, I found the Off-road Bumblebee for relatively cheap while out shopping. I love the figure, but if it’s not a Beetle or a Camero, I just don’t see it as a Bee. But who would be well known for going off-road?

    Cliffjumper.

    I know we’re getting a Cybertron mode one soon, and he’s “canonically” a red Camero in the Bayverse, but I feel like he would be a great jeep.

    Unfortunately, he was almost impossible to paint at times, thanks to the new “no screw” format for Transformers. I still did my best, and I like it a lot.

    Here he is alongside Whirl and Nightbeat. And, of course, meeting his G1 counterpart.

    It looks great. You could always use it as Volks, the other red Bumblebee.

    I could totally see Movie CJ as a Jeep if he went to Earth. You gonna do a headswap if you get the Cybertronian one?

    I’d been considering it! At the very least, if I could ever get the head off the old WfC CJ, that could also work.

    I just realized something. Cliffjumper is abbreviated “CJ” and so is the jeep alt mode. Willys CJ-3A aka “Jeep CJ”. So now CJ is a CJ!

    Target has some paint pens that seem to be an in-house thing, called Home Made Modern. They work pretty well, but some paint colors work better than others.

    They’re also fairly cheap, and most of the paints work well. I used them all on this Universe Springer into Galvatron, and it worked well.

    You've convinced me that this mold works better as Cliffjumper. Nice work on this one.

    Very cool! I'd go as far as to say the red works better for the mold than the yellow
