    IMG_9774.JPG IMG_9775.JPG IMG_9776.JPG IMG_9777.JPG IMG_9778.JPG I removed tampo but it was sssuper scary to do. WARNING for those who don't know the bonnet is clear plastic painted red then tampo'd. The trick is to fold paper towel into a small point lightly touch the tip to %99 alcohol which I had in the cap then lightly rub a small area of the tampo until it is erased then back off fold another piece of paper towel and go at another section. I think it important to keep starting fresh and work in tiny sections. Afterward the areas cleaned were a little shiny so I very carefully sanded the bonnet with a soft automotive 3000 grit pad to dull the paint again. I gave him a small faction from Toyhax on the front drivers side and on his roof. Better matches cartoon. Cool with faction on his toe in bot mode.

    That was my backup. The surface is smooth enough. Matte vinyl maybe.

    Is anyone’s backpack super loose? It falls right off his back if I turn him on his side and shake him even just a little?

    Mine is snug, is the 5mm port on the back of your copy cracked?

    No, not cracked... not a big deal, I guess just needs some floor polish

    Mine was loose but I thickened 5mm peg slightest bit with CA glue. Had to tighten ab crunch as well. Used thinnest bit of CA glue on end of straight pin into the groove. Worked the joint so it would not glue together permanently. Pinned figures are going to be difficult to tighten up loose joints in thd future I suspect.

    With Impossible Toys Hilljumper, which is what I was using as Cliffjumper until Hasbro finally decided gave us an actual CJ. Whie the proportions on CJ are better, I still like how true to the original HJ is. I just wish his head were 3D.

    He may be tiny, but he's definitely got the complexity of a larger toy. There's quite a bit of flipping and rotating in the transformation process I wasn't prepared for. The removable trunk is... a unique choice, but he's already an odd pile of bits swinging past each other, so I'm not sure how feasible anything else might be.

    Either way, I like him.

    Has anyone got any tips for getting the black connector from his backpack out without using a spudger? I bite my nails alas so it’s kind of my fault but even when I use my pen knife it’s bloody tricky. Tried putting shock oil in the joint but didn’t help.

    That always bugs me when figures have this issue.

    So I just got mine via Amazon. Wow, he’s a small bugger, eh?

    I like him but getting that pack off in alt mode is a little tough.

    What a wonderfull figure. I hope enough people are able to appreciate the engineering and materials of this little dude. Don't listen to the cheapskates (video reviewers included) complaining about the price, or the size; this is an outstanding release, well worth the deluxe price point. I hope to see more minibots of this calibre.

    Agreed, the quality definitely matches the price. I got mine on Saturday and haven’t stopped fiddling with it. Perfect size, fun transformation. Can’t wait for the inevitable Hubcap.

    What a great little figure! Ironically the only car mode in scale with ER Optimus Prime’s truck mode.

    This figure is great.
    It took me awhile before I was able to transform it without killing my fingers and struggling to separate parts because of the paint making everything hold together way too tightly at first.

    a few transformations later and he’s perfect
