Cliffjumper - War For Cybertron - Figure

War For Cybertron Cliffjumper

War For Cybertron has been perhaps the best thing to ever hit a game console in Transformers history. To have a figure line accompany it that was executed just as well is almost unheard of. Unfortunately for the fans, the figure line was limited to four figures... well, five now. It has been seen fit to finish the WFC line with a repaint of Bumblebee called, naturally, Cliffjumper.


Even before the war, Cliffjumper was constantly spoiling for a fight. The Decepticons just gave him an excuse. He's been bending fenders and smashing heads for years now, and the fun never stops. Despite his short temper, he gets along well with the other Autobots, who appreciate his eagerness to take the first shot in every battle.


Robot Mode

The first thing you'll notice in robot mode is the head sculpt. It is the only retooling of this figure, but then again how much retooling do you need? The red paintjob is spot on to Cliffjumper, as is the head. Though it may look like it, there is no light piping for the eyes.

The same weapons options apply for Cliffjumper. You can either deploy his arm-mounted blades or stick with the trusty hand pistol. This could be one of the smartest repaints of the year.


Knees: Pin hinge, 90 degree bend. Pinned above hinge for unlimited lower leg rotation
Hips: Ball joint with pin hinge below hip, 120 degree bend and 90 degree spread. Pinned below hip for unlimited leg rotation
Waist:Unlimited rotation
Shoulders:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 75 degree spread. Pinned below shoulder for unlimited arm rotation
Elbows:Double pin hinge, 180 degree bend
Hands:Pinned for unlimited rotation
Head:Ball joint, unlimited rotation. Pinned for 90 degree bend

Same stellar posing ability that Bumblebee had. Just be careful of the feet, which like to pop off their ball joints.

Robot Mode Specs

Supplied accessories:(1) hand pistol


Identical to WFC Bumblebee

Alt Mode

Interesting how, even though the vehicle mode is the same, the description isn't. Instead of a courier, Cliffjumper is listed as a racer. The only real change is in the paint apps. All the lines and accents match up, only the color is different. That, and the headlights are now translucent yellow.

Sadly, this closes out the short lived Generations lineup. There were so many more possibilities, especially with the War For Cybertron line. Why they weren't explored will be anyone's guess, but at least we got the core figures represented.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 4.5in/114.3mm
Scale Ratio:N/A
Wheels: 4, rotating.
Detailed cockpit:N/A


Robot Mode: All the benefits of the previous character, plus a new head.
Alt Mode:No changes in alt mode either, which is a good thing.
Overall:WFC goes out with a bang, which is the same way it came in.

So glad they finally made his head right. It would be great if they re-released classics cliffjumper with this head. I hope this is not the end for War for Cybertron figures. I would like to see Ironhide/Ratchet and the jets at least.

Obviously, the color is different, but yes, it can be used on Classics Cliffjumper. I just placed the head on there. The ball joint from Classics Cliffjumper is just tad larger than the socket on WFC Cliffjumper. The fit is a little tight, I think loosening the screw on the back of the head would... read more

I think WFC Cliffjumper has the best shade of red that Hasbro has ever used on a Transformer. I doubt that Tomy will do anything better for their Transformers United Cliffjumper.

I like this figure better than the Bumblebee one. I like this headsculpt alot. Very nice figure. The one I got is actually better quality IMHO than the BB as far as the Legs are not so loose and nothing seems to pop off even when I'm not pushing very hard . Still can't ever get all the seem... read more

I can now report that WFC Cliffjumper's head fits just fine on Classics CJ, and apart from the red being noticably darker than shade on the body, it looks very good. I may try to repaint the head to better match the figure, unless WFC CJ proves to be so rare I can't find a second one. I... read more

The original CJ was a unique mold, a Porsche, although it shared the same transformation scheme as the VW mold. That's why we'd kinda like to see Cliff as his own figure yet again. Their personalities are vastly different, yet we're always expected to accept the same character design to... read more

Sorry, but that's how it's been for the entire 26 years of Transformers: G1, Universe, Movie 1, WFC, though I think TFP Might change all that.
