    I'm definitely one of them. Cliffjumper was a great buy.

    Wait! We can still state our hyperbolic opinions as fact?

    In that case, I have to say that if you can’t play the fiddle like Charlie Daniels, you suck suck suuuuck.

    .... To be fair, you don't actually have to remove it for transformation if you're ok with him holding it XD
    But if you don't like the toy that's fine. More for us that want him!!

    I've completely forgotten.

    RotF Hubcap... fun figure. It’s almost a semi-modern Laserrod.

    Holy crap, I was right then. :lol 

    I pulled him out of storage the other day, but couldn't remember if that was his name or not, so thanks for that!

    As what I've said in the past, I'm against this figure's partsforming (still am), but after having this figure for about 3 weeks, I quite enjoy it (except for the partsforming).
    [​IMG]
    I have my figure underslung the gun as well as shorten it (Personally, the gun looks too long with the second barrel attached). Initially, I was going to say I hate how all of the red except the head and arms was paint, until I accidentally discovered that it was red paint over red plastic (except the chest and shoulders), which led to me wondering what was the point of that.

    Been trying so hard to guess why the roof connects to a part of the gun that he ended up like that

    Whoa! Cannonface mode is quite a thing. That reminds me of ROTF Lockdown.

    “Lockjumper mode.” “Cliffdown?”

    Got this guy on a whim yesterday on amazon and he was delivered today. What a fun and cute figure! Definitely pushing what's worth $20, but as a figure I'm pretty pleased with him right out of the box. I am NOT happy about the partsforming backpack but I haven't transformed him yet so for now I am happy.

    I’ll bash you with my stick!

    All I can really say is there has to have been some reason that they chose to make the back hood come off like that, because judging by the engineering on the rest of the figure, it should have been possible. Maybe it would have been too cumbersome or exceed some sort of parts count? I don't know. There are elements present on the figure that make it seem like it COULD have, but somewhere someone in a directorial position said "...why don't we make this come off instead of all these complicated doohickeys".

    Definitely not ideal, but at least we still have a pretty badass Cliffjumper. My only complaint is that he didn't come with something else, like an effects part just for him or something.

    First thing I thought of:
    [​IMG]

    There's a 3P piece that can be used to stop the parts forming. It is one piece, replacing another single piece, so it doesn't effect the cost. I am going to give the designers credit and assume they could figure it out, too. So I'm left with three reasons why they may not have opted to do so:
    1) The piece may be too small/fragile to pass toys safety tests.
    2) The hood interferes with the relatively smooth transformation in an unfun way.
    3) They would lose the ability to make the hood a shield (or, if kept as a shield, there's really no reason to keep it attached it in the first place aside from finicky fans).

    Have a link to that piece? I’d be very interested.

    Never mind. Found it. Hats off to those guys that came up with it

    In case anyone was wondering, alt mode balances really well on a cat’s head.

    Using Bumblebee's battle car mode on Cliffjumper.

    I knew you could plug in the back panel section of the pew pew into the rear windshield but didn't know that was meant for alt mode.

    This requires the arms to be folded up to work in alt mode. Do NOT try to force the arms into this position if already in alt mode. Otherwise, you will scuff paint off the shoulders. You have to partially undo the transformation to rearrange the arms.

    Anyone have advice on how to loosen the black peg inside cliffy’s hatch back piece?

    I’ve come to believe that peg is my main issue with the figure. Trying to swivel that peg out has literally broken off pieces of my finger nail. It is just too tight if I don’t have a prying tool to move it.
