Transformers: Studio Series Deluxe Class Cliffjumper

Cliffjumper

Previous Mold Use: Studio Series Deluxe Class Offroad Bumblebee

Vehicle Mode: In vehicle mode, Cliffjumper lacks any resemblance to Offroad Bumblebee from who he is remolded. Cliffjumper looks okay in vehicle mode. I’m really not crazy about the looks of it, but it’s not bad. It would have been nice if he had a few more paint apps.

Robot Mode: In robot mode you can see the common parts with Offroad Bumblebee. Cliffjumper looks fine, but seems to have a design flaw.

The outsides of his legs don’t peg in properly. It seems to be because his wheels don’t fold up as far as they should inside his legs. There are two slots on the plate the wheels are attached too. When it folds over, it looks like there are two flat pegs that mirror them, but they are too big to fit. If they did fit, even just a little bit, I think it would fold his wheels over far enough for the sides of his legs to peg in correctly. Either that or they just did a piss poor job designing him, which knowing Hasbro is just as likely.

Overall: Cliffjumper is nothing special, but not bad. I can’t think of him as an essential buy since he had a bit part in an okay movie. For completists only.

Thanks for reading!
