We reported yesterday a sighting of these figure over in the Philippines, but Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 was able to get hold of a couple of them earlier across to the US - and has provided us with a second review, this time featuring Generations Legends Cliffjumper and Suppressor!

Sometimes the repaint of a mold can end up being a little better than the original, such is the case with Cliffjumper. Cliffjumper is a straight repaint of the wave 1 Generations Legends Bumblebee mold but I noticed an easier time pegging the arms in for car mode, I freely admit though that the hips felt just a touch looser. Partnered with Suppressor a repaint of Targetmaster Roller Cliffjumper ends up with some serious firepower, unfortunately much like with Optimus Prime, the combined gun ends up being a bit to heavy to properly wield. All in all this is a fantastic set.

Found Generations Legends Cliffjumper :BOT: and Nemesis Prime :CON: at retail the other day. This was at a Target here in Kentucky.

Not a complaint but concerning CJ. My fave character............always relegated to a BB repaint. Swerve got his 15 minutes of fame in IDW, good. The result, we also get a retool of him into Gears. Face sculpt and all. Would it have cost Tomy/Hasbro more to have CJ's head be retooled with a more Samurai helmet get up like Gears got a distinct face differing from Swerve? It's CJ for Primus' sake....not some background character.....CJ!

I'd be happy for an accurate car mode

I saw em both at a Target. After seeing the gallery of Sky-Byte though with the comparison to the original RID toy, I think I'd rather just have the Takara Gel Shark toy from that line. This is too... symmetrical. I don't like it. Roadbuster is amazing though. I hope they make redecos and remolds out of the mold because I think it's genius. They could totally milk it like the Springer mold.

Seibertron.com member Breakdown318 stopped by to let us know of a current ongoing auction held by the now famous ebay seller lena81822. Today we get some in-hand images of Protectobot 3 pack streetwise. Streetwise is the new repaint of Beast Hunters Prowl andwas first reported here. Check out the images we've mirrored below.

Streetsmart looks... pretty plain-looking.

Ha! Want to know the funniest thing? I am a big fan of the scalper-killing Lena seller and I actually saw this transformer being sold but thought it was simply Prowl and thought nothing of it :lol:

I hear what you're saying. It is pretty plain.

In robot mode I agree. On the flipside that makes him perfect for aspiring customizers who want to do detailing. Shame mine will remain the Netherlands whereas I'm leaving it.

Yeah, it is kinda plain. Not that Streetwise was ever particularly interesting-looking, but it is a little dull. Doesn't help that the original mold was white too.

For a moment I was wondering "Why is Prime Prowl suddenly news-worthy again?"

Pretty pretty sweet, there...I've just been using BH Prowl himself as a G2-style Streetwise, Galaxy Force Police Gasket as Groove, and GPO Hot Spot as, well, Hot Spot. Kinda wish they'd do a new head sculpt for Ratchet-into-First-Aid, but these are cost-effective repaints, so whatever.

EDIT: And, for the record, "Streetsmart" is a WAY better avoid-the-copyright alternative to "Streetwise" than "Streetstar." Sorry, FunPub and Takara.

Well, G1 Streetstar was originally some other dude than Streetwise.

Even that's debatable as Guard City, of which he is a part, was never shown separated.

And it's trademark :HEADHURTS:

I agree with Sabrblade. This toy is dull and plain. I really hope that someone in the Transtopia section would get this guy and redo this toy entirely. Change the faction or make a new plastic head sculpt for the figure. Give him more paint aps. Make the vehicle mode have the same markings of your local police department. Just so many things that you can do to a blank toy.

While I call it "plain", I wouldn't call it "dull". I do think it looks ordinary and not-special, but not bad or overbearingly boring. He just looks like a Cybertron John Doe or Average Joe, rather than a special person. But not in awful way. Just... a deco of neutral indifference.
