Activator Cliffjumper Transformers Animated Toy

I know there are a sizable Bumblebee Fans, but are they any Cliffjumper fans? I like Cliffjumper during Generation one period. Back then, Bumblebee and CliffJumper looked different from each other. However the toy maker just do a lazy job by repainting Bumblebee and named it as Cliffjumper.


CliffJumper had yet to appear in the animated Series or the movie. The transformation is just the same as Bumblebee by pressing the siren on the hood.


Thankfully some justice was done to CliffJumper in animated series toy. They design a unique head for him.


That made the robot mode look so different.


Maybe CliffJumper would like to introduce himself.








As sad as I want to admit, CliffJumper in animated series only came out in Activator mode. That was one reason I bought him. To me, Bumblebee and CliffJumper are inseparable in my childhood memory. Buddy buddy?



So are you a CliffJumper fan too?

Nice review, I actually like the new head sculpt on the Cliffjumper more than the BB one.

What is the relationship between Cliffjumper and Bumblebee?

LEon said...

Jcee you mean the relationship of Bumblebee and Cliffjumper in Gen 1 time or the animation. If it is the latest animated series, CliffJumper did not appear at all.

Ha! Ha! They are almost the same since G1! Nice pics. Your postings are always creative and entertaining.

I will certainly pick it up when I see it LEon - I think you probably get a lot of toys showing up in your stores much sooner than I do, so I may not see it for a couple months.

If I can't find one at all I will let you know - us toy collectors need to stick together! Also, if there's ever anything you need that you think I would have an easy time finding let me know and we can help each other out. :)

Aha..this type of toys I like..

LEon said...

@ Kris and Nadia
Yes sometime it funny in term of scaling and you wonder what Hasbro the toy maker and designer were thinking.

@ cosmicbaby
Exactly...they do that all the time in the movie and animation. G1 was not like that in respect to the vehicle mode.

@Dennis aka Katsuden
Thanks for your compilment. That how I play with my toys now, thru blogging. Hehehe

@Bubbashelby
Only some cases we manage to get some stock faster. Different country have different liking of collectors. You are right, we should help each other out as much as we can. :)

@C.Alv.B
If you want, I can keep a look out for you. :)

I've always enjoyed your toyfics, love the way you take your toy photos and give them cute dialogues. I could feel that your toys are alive, great work! :D

Btw, where did you photograph these 2 toys? I like the overall photo effect :)

LEon said...

Thank for your compliment and encouragement Juliana. :)

I took these photograph at my room. Using white paper as background with my room light on and window widely open most of the time on weekend morning/afternoon. Most of the time I increase the amplitude of the lens.

With some basic composure of the figure in mind, I will take some shots. After all that, just do some digital touch up and add some wording with the composure to make sense out of it. Not very pro tho. :P

Leon - Taking pictures, you are much more better than me..I don't even have a photoshop software..Haha!!

LEon said...

Thanks desmond for your compliment. Your photographs on your blog are good too...especially your cute nephew. :D

Jaded Lee said...

Sadly, CliffJumper did not left an impression on me as compared to BumbleBee...

LEon said...

Jaded, I guess I remember more as I played with both toys before (which belongs to my childhood friend). He also have a mini auto red spy plane...forgotten the name...

Juliana said...

LEon said...
