    I would go nuts if they unveil Cliffjumper and Jazz. Cliffjumper does make sense if you consider the timing between a lot of similar molds which were fairly released close together such as Grapple/Inferno and Ironhide/Ratchet among others. But like you- I could see it. Maybe a resin version of MP Jazz to go along with Cliffjumper?

    I think that the vans will eventually be + versions or V2's with the things that you are talking about being cleaned up. But I think it will be awhile before we get that due to the fact that they were fairly recent compared to Starscream, Sideswipe, and Soundwave among others who need an update far more.

    Not doubting, but does anyone believe the Cliffjumper rumor? I ask because it's still Porsche.

    Someone just confirmed that those other 3 figures on the list are true. So we may get a MP49 Cliffjumper.

    He only confirmed the other 3 figures. MP49 is still yet to be determined. But if those are true, then...

    TCracker mentioned last year that his contacts from Chinese Factory had some info on MP Cliffjumper. No other mention of Cliffjumper by TCracker or any other insider/source. I think its about time they did another minibot. Still hoping for that Brawn TB77 mentioned.

    We chatted often off site. CJ and Jazz were both completely designed, and Porsche was already on board. Jazz was designed back when Smokescreen came out, but they kept pushing it back for reveal until they saw the line was changing. Then they scrapped that Jazz all together. Now we will get a new Jazz :)  But CJ should be shown this weekend hopefully.

    So I've been thinking about Cliffjumper. What are the chances that his crazy custom spoiler will be interchangeable with a stock spoiler without partsforming, just like Sunstreaker's massive engine intakes? I'll bet Porsche is being just like Lamborghini with the "We'll agree to license this if it can be displayed exactly like the real car."

    We need to be prepared for ~¥15000 price tag on this guy.

    Forget that. Just reveal both Cliff and Jazz and be over with the whole Porsche problem.

    Is that possible, he would scale with Bee who's about the size of 44's jetpack, don't think it's really enough room to do a Sunstreaker, unless he keeps the roof as his chest. Which I doubt as he Bee and Windcharger were the smaller minis, they would want to keep that proportional look for those 3.

    I don't see an MP CJ being much more than MP45 Bee, 80 to 90 USD on AJ.

    Now an MP Jazz, I can see HIM being somewhere between 110 and 125 USD on AJ.

    Porsche seemed fine with the big chunky spoilers on these ChoroQ cars by Takara-Tomy…

    … solely based on that, MP Cliffjumper will probably have his custom spoiler without an alternate. Though, I suppose it’s possible they could go with a swappable one.

    I don't need cars to be officially licensed or to have a realistic alt-mode. Yes, the line could become even more diversified but we even have a superdeformed bee and that was not thinkable till today so for me it is better to have a non licensed porsche-lookalike Jazz or Cliff than not having them at all.

    A swappable front/chest for ironhide and ratchet plus versions would be a great idea! No more beer belly for them! also they could make the samourai side skirts detachable

    Ah cool. (I always forget those things are things.) I was trying to help them get a Hubcap out of the same mold, but if the wacky spoiler is copacetic with Porsche and with Hubcap being a non-show character, maybe they won't go that far.

    Don't you tease me.

    Cliffjumper with Bee v2's stature and articulation...... Dayum.

    Edit - if it is shown this weekend I bet Bee v2 sales spike. Could be a canny move on behalf of Takara delaying him.

    What I would want (and what they won't do, since it's not cartoon accurate) is an integrated sled. It's the only thing they could do that would make a redo worthwhile. Maybe years and years from now. They do seem to be committed to getting cartoon-accurate and toy-accurate versions of the characters out of the same mold.

    This thread would explode with delight if MP Cliffjumper and Jazz come to fruition. The 3P CJ offerings are OK, at best, and while there is a good 3P Jazz, it could be better.

    I'd sell my Grand Max and a few MP extras, just to finance 3 MP Jazz and 2 MP CJs if they were announced back to back.

    Agreed. It's kind of weird that FansToys hadn't taken a crack at these two. I wonder if they speculated that they would eventually be made officially, too. :)
