    Again. these are people posting online on a discussion board. At worst they are using harsh language to express an opinion about a toy. And frankly they probably forgot they posted immediately after as most people don't think of discussion boards as something of huge consequence.

    I really am sorry that you guys are so upset that people have expressed their opinions, i sincerely hope things improve for you in the future

    looks good, little dissapointing that some of it has to be removed to transform, feel that should affect the price and shouldn\'t be deluxe price point

    No self-respecting reviewer shows people the size comparisons they actually want to see.

    In early release photos the pegs on the underside of the car boot (behind his head in bot mode) really bothered me. Now comprehension has dawned as to what they are truly for... Holding kibble in alt mode! Lots of valid opinions on eather side of the divide on this figure

    I'm personally not canceling my pre-order for CJ yet but definitely not as stoked as I was when he was announced.

    If he's disappointing in hand then any subsequent uses of the mould will be a no-go for me.

    ANYWAY... I'm going back to the Siege appreciation thread where it's safe.

    To everyone bitching about the size, keep in mind that the plastic/paint budget is shared across the wave of deluxes. CJ is short, which probably means that Wheeljack, Ironworks, or Hoist are gonna be huuuuuge. (I hope it's Ironworks)

    As for the partsforming.....I don't care for it much either.

    HasTak has their reasons for doing what they do. I’ll wait till I have him in hand before I make final judgements. I was looking at my old Generations Wheeljack, and his vehicle back/backpack hinge thing, and it made me wonder why Hasbro didn’t downscale that, so maybe they tried and it was just too fragile? Who knows...

    Weapons do count to material usage, so don\'t expect something became big just because cliffjumper is small

    Wow, they actually incorporated MP-45 engineering by the looks of it. Just as a figure, this looks amazing and I love how much clearly went into it. As a representation of Cliffjumper though, for me personally, it just doesn't feel as much like the G1 cartoon version of him as the other Earthrise characters have thus far. (Other than the headsculpt and accessories which are awesome imo.)

    Again though this is in no way to bash the figure, he looks amazing. I love it when Generations borrows MP engineering and/or vice-a-versa. (Whether intentionally or just coincidentally. It's definitely possible for two design teams to come up with the same solution to a challenge independently, it happens all the time.)

    Are there any pics of Cliffjumper and the previous Siege figures in vehicle mode?

    I'm fine with him smaller in robot mode, but I hope he scales fine with the others in vehicle mode at least
