Linky,

I like and I'm glad they went to the effort to make the head molds different and not go the lazy repaint route :APPLAUSE:

Looks like those pics from a few weeks ago were mis-transformed. They look more slimmed down now.

Still not a fan of the shoulders but I suspect they'll grow on me.

Thanks P. Skywarp!

These look better but still not too sure about them and how they'd fit into my collection. If I get one, it would definitely be CJ.

Hmmm, I have not picked up any alternators (except the two in my collection..) and I have not been really interested in these types of figures..

I am diligently trying to capture most of the Classics I can, and then move on to the ROTF Movie line..

so what sucks is that between the masterpieces they release, the Alternity figures they release, the classics/Universe, ROTF, Reissues, and 3RD Party stuff... it's amazing anyone can even keep up!! sheesh!!

these guys may be about as close to a Masterpiece of Both cliffjumper and Bumblebee that we'll ever see.. so I'm hard pressed to want to pick them up.. but I know if I do, one of my other collections will suffer.. and I'm just not clear I want to go down that road..

FINALLY! Cliffjumper finally gets some love. Some real love. Not just a Bumblebee repaint. :)

Man, they couldn't even get Cliffjumper right in G2. "Cliffjumper" was just a red Hubcap mold in G2.

Kudos to Takara Tomy for finally giving us a new Cliffjumper worthy of the name after 25 years.

Looking good, yes, very good! Thanks for bringing these pictures to our attention, Pretender Skywarp!

Now that we have photos showing less proportion problems, I have no issues at all with Alternity BB/CJ. The fact that two head sculpts were made and they don't seem to have a plate on the back of the head has sold me for sure!

I don't mind the shoulder/wheel wells. Also, if there's room for adjustment, maybe they could be angled back to reduce the appearance of the broadness of the shoulders.

Honestly, I love the choice for the alt mode because I prefer BB's as a compact car. It's about time we get a proper Cliffjumper that isn't simply a repaint of BB. The last Cliffjumper I bought was the TFA Activators CJ, which is cool, but I was hoping for a Deluxe class version. Respect the chin!

Yeah, I think that the Alternity BB/CJ will be the most "Masterpiece" version of the characters we'll see for some time. But...if I'm wrong, I'm happy to be wrong!

Since these are in scale with Alternity Convoy and Megatron, I think it may fit in with my Leader class Optimus Prime from RotF. I hope so because I can display them like in this picture by EJ Su:

Alternity BB has a good mix of classic G1 design and the more mechanical live action movie design to not look too out of place with RotF Leader OP.

Pass... Really don't like the chest/midsection. Looks like an apple with arms, legs, and a head.

So far, I've been able to pass over the entire Alternity line with wanton disregard and no regrets. More for everyone else, I suppose.

Cliffjumper is becoming more and more tempting. I wanted a decent one for my Classics collection (not a repainted Bumblebee). My only hangup is the price tag of Alternitys. $50 is just too high!

It is a wonder indeed... I've been lucky enough to have been at it long enough that I now have all the Classics/Henkei figures (the ones I want, which is by no means the complete line), all but 1 of the Alternators (same deal), all of the Animated figures released thus far (only the ones I want, see the pattern? :mrgreen:), and I'm mostly caught up with the Movie/ROTF lines. And I have City Commander, but I haven't jumped on the boat for non-fansproject items, aside from the Starscream Coronation set.

Sadly the Masterpieces have had to suffer as I still have yet to pick up the other two seekers or Grimlock. I just can't justify spending $120+ on one TF, usually. Lucky for me, my girlfriend wants to buy Grimlock for my birthday.

Whew. Which brings us to Alternity. I originally wasn't going to start collecting these, as Convoy & Megatron aren't exactly what I feel they should be (trukk not sports kar..?), but as per my plan I collect Black Convoys which share molds of Primes I don't want. So that was a one-off purchase I was only slightly hesitant to make.

But Bumblebee. This looks 100% better than the prototype pics. I don't know if the prototype was mis-transformed, or if it's the addition of color that makes all the difference, but I like it. So my preorder can stay. It is cool to see Cliffjumper getting a proper remold, and he actually looks better than Bumblebee. Love the red + gunmetal combo. However, I don't collect Cliffjumpers so I'll stick to BB. He'll look alright as and Alt BB stand-in, perhaps. Maybe I can find a cheaper preorder though...
