    This is a pretty cool figure! I wasn't sure if I wanted it but seeing it in store with Wheeljack and I just had to have him. First thing first...this guy is small! In all modes. Small but lots of personality. The weapon is pretty awesome. Like having more bazooka style weapons. I can't wait for something like Bumblebee at this size.

    Transformation is pretty awesome. Definitely needs to be experienced. Jet ski mode is pretty nice! I love little homages to G1 episodes like this.

    A pretty nice figure, though small. I don't have any issues with small figures, but if you do then this might be a bit off putting. The deluxe sized box dwarfs this guy.

    Probably best Cliffjumper by far.

    That size is putting me off quite a bit. Especially with what a deluxe tends to cost in Australia

    Would you happen to have MP-21 Bumblebee to compare? I feel like that's the closest Bumblebee that this Cliffjumper would resemble.

    I’m choosing to think of this as *not* a partsformer, but rather ‘weapon’ storage.
    But that size doesn’t help either.
    Still need a decent Cliffs so I’m sure I’ll get one... eventually.

    Could you post some comparisons with Prime Wars legends figures, please?

    Nice pics! Am I right in thinking that he has ‘side to side’ ankle movement, but not ‘back to front’? And if you get a chance to line him and chase up in robot mode I’d be interested to see the size compression, as I seem to remember rumours of cj getting a throttlebot repaint down the line.

    Are all of the car body panels covered in paint? It sure looks like it from the pics.

    I don't really care how small he is. I think big things that come in small packages are good

    I’ve never cared for the fact that the Minibots are so disproportionally small in alt mode compared to the other Bots. They feel like proto-Micromasters. I always wished they could just be upscaled a bit to fit in better with the rest.

    That said this guy looks beautiful in both modes. Just really striking. The partsforming is always gonna bother me though and be the one nagging thing that keeps this from a 10.

    This guy does look fantastic and I’ll be getting him at some point.

    I guess my only gripe is after a series where we got a LOT of high quality minibots in the same scale, we are again redoing their scale.

    I cant wait to work through CJs transformation for myself, he just looks like an overall fun figure. Could we possibly see him with some of the other minibots? My impression is he's bigger than them, but not by much.

    Yeah the size will get me... if I already thought Brunt was way too dinky and Cliffjumper is that much smaller than I couldn’t do it. Plus season 1 yadda yadda yadda.

    Yup on ankles. Pic coming up since someone else asked too.

    They certainly feel that way. This figure has a hell of a lot of paint it seems like.

    Is this fine?

    Eeeyup. The waist articulation is necessary for transformation too.

    I was going to get this guy, but yikes, is he tiny. That plus the cost of Deluxes and partsforming (sorry, can't see it as "weapon storage." Maybe if it was a more convincing weapon/shield I could give it a pass), I really can't see myself picking this guy up.
