    This is such a cute little figure I couldn't keep walking past it.

    I thought I could get past the partsforming, but really it's just a poor effort. There's no real attempt to make the back part of the car resemble anything other than the back part of a car. You can pretend it's a shield (which just looks like the rear part of a car pegged onto an arm), or you can kludge together a sort of mega gun mode by just clipping the rest of the accessories CJ comes with to it.

    It's not great. It should have been worked into the arm transformation.

    Which is a shame because the figure is otherwise fun, and the robot mode is gorgeous and characterful.

    Unfortunately the fourth deluxe Classics/Gen Cliffjumper released is the weakeast, nothwithstanding that it's the first to use an original mold. GDO CJ> Classics CJ> Generations WFC CJ>Generations ER CJ

    The robot mode looks great but from the side, his feet remind me of Mafia concrete shoes! (See Hasbro, if you kept him stunted he'd be perfect!)

    I don't have this one yet but probably will some day. His transformation looks like a simplified MP21 (apart from the "shield" part). The feet and arms/side-torso look remarkably familiar.

    Is that accurate, or are they quite different?

    I got to mess with it today. The feet are similar, in that the wheels fold away and the doors wrap around the back, but otherwise it's a very different transformation to MP-21. The overall aesthetic is similar though, scale aside.

    I decided to do a comparison of ER Cliffjumper with various legends and deluxe figures I had from recent years. Cliffjumper is definitely more on par with a deluxe than a legends based on his parts count and transformation steps.

    Hehe. This doesn't make Wreck-Gar look good...


    Looking For:


    - Unite Warriors Glaze (Blades)
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat


    All can be loose or packaged, I don't mind.

    CW Wreck-Gar is just a redeco of that little Legends Class CW Groove toy (becomes the chest-plate for the gestalt robot)

    Oh my bad. I was thinking it was the Deluxe Groove repaint.

    Yeah, you're right. I got it yesterday. The feet wrap around, the arms swing up, but the rest is different. The way the legs swing above the head is interesting. It does look painful though. Like so many Transformers, my back hurts just thinking about the bends they have to do to convert.

    Cool figure. It feels like the money saved from the materials/size went into the details and finish. I love the MP10-esque matt red plastic.

    ERCJ having more parts than any of those other Deluxes is pretty interesting. I guess he packs a lot into that diminutive size.
