Hi. I posted this on TFW but I was recommended to post it here too so here I am!
This is my first post like this so I hope you like it.
I am from the UK which is where this was brought from.
I've taken lots of pictures of Transformers Prime RID Cliffjumper
for your viewing.
The first bunch shows him next to the First Edition
version so you can see how they compare. The second set I will post will show his scale next to some other bots. I'll try and leave appropriate observations too
No matter which
Cliffjumper you get you will enjoy it!
They are both really nice figures. Neither are perfect. Hopefully there will be another that combines them into an ultimate version.
IMG #1. He is considerably shorter than the FE version, but that one has large shoulders. I would say the RID version comes up to about the middle of the FE versions face.
The RID is only red and silver/gray now. No black for the body except the fake windscreen.
IMG #2. The back kibble hangs lower on him, if I did it right. You can raise it up a little if you ignore where it locks in. They do both have fake red wheels on the legs. The RID version though is more noticeable.
Also the back of his legs is hollow. Unlike the FE one which is covered by flaps.
IMG #3. I would say the kibble hangs out a bit farther on the RID one. But it fits with the overall style so doesn't detract.
The sides of his arms also have a big gap on it where the wheel arch is. The windows fold down slightly over his arms but really should go down further.
The doors clip together in a U style clip which is ok but can slip a little. The front grill folds down above his elbows.
IMG #4-5. The car mode is only slightly shorter, same width but not as high.
So when next to Bumblebee it looks like a whole different scale. Somewhere between Deluxe and Scout. Not that all scales match in a line.
It transforms much simpler than the First Edition and clips together much tighter with less obvious lines. There is no gap between the hood and the windshield now also. I didn't do a good job of transforming the FE and forgot to flip some windows up.
The windows are now very clear and there are no breaks in the side windows like the FE. What annoys me is behind the windshield. There is all these connector pieces I can't see much of a purpose for except to hold it on?
IMG #6. You can see the fake chest and the head below.
IMG #7. The fronts are very similar but the RID lights and horn are different colours.
IMG #8. Same with the back but no exhaust pipes. Plus added black.
IMG #9-10. There are holes on the top and sides for the weapon. Shame they couldn't have used the trick that DOTM Roadbuster does. Also there is no Autobot symbol anywhere on him.
For some reason I didn't take a pic of his robot mode with the weapon but there are a few of those around.
I hope this review helps people in decided which they prefer or looking forward to it.
Enjoy the images as I've edited them to try and be as clear as possible.
