    Quick question. I personally don't care if his hands are blue or grey, but is that metallic blue on his hands? I thought it was regular blue but it looks really good.

    Cliffjumper just needs a nice Autobot logo on his bot chest and he will be nice on my shelf.

    Cliffjumper's always had complications when it comes to his Autobot sigil. In car mode it's on the left side of his engine hood, while in bot mode it's on his chest which would be the roof of his car mode. Bumblebee's got the same problem. Odd they'd make the Earthrise figure in such a way that it's just plain not visible while he's in robot mode.

    He's barely larger than a legends, but I guess they could slapped one on the shoulder.

    Yeah, but that's end up leaving his chest feeling empty.

    I'm a bit torn between painting his shoulders or leaving them as is, because I like the G1-ish deco but I also like the pattern the red shoulders offer. Either way I'll probably add an Autobot Sigil to his roof/chest anyway.

    I was thinking of Robo Wheels, but I'm not surprised there's been similar concepts.

    I think my only real complaint about CJ is that he can't properly hold the bazooka two-handed.
    Otherwise, he looks pretty darn awesome.

    Reminds me of Generations Trailcutter / hoist and Titans Brawn/Outback. It would bother me more if I wasn't so pleased to have a decent looking Cliffjumper.

    Just a thought, what if the partsforming back piece is removable so it can be easily retooled for an eventual Hubcap repaint.
    Aside from the head, only Hubcap's rear of the car was different from Cliffjumper's.

    I think they left it off because it would be upside down in one mode or the other because of how his roof rotates.

    And for whatever reason, they seem not to do foot placements anymore.

    Why does Cliffjumper look better than masterpiece 2.0 bumblebee?
