Cliffjumper - Generation 1 - Figure

Back in the days before mini cons, Micromasters and Spychangers (yes kiddies, before you were born), there were mini bots called Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Brawn, Pipes, Huffer, Sea Spray, Powerglide, Gears and I've forgotten the rest of them. These were the first tiny Transformers basically and they were cute and basic, and a lot of fun to play with. I've finally managed to find one of the G1 keyrings, basically just a reissue of one of the tiny mini bots and I managed to find Cliffjumper, would have loved to get Cliffjumper and Bumblebee, but only Cliffjumper was available in the shop, so here's my review of the fun wee toy-

Car mode: So cute! It's red, pure red, with a sliver tab at the back, rubber wheels, black windshield, and black underneath. He's a kind of sports car, a squashed one, and he looks so cute you would be afraid of playing with him in case he falls apart, just be gentle. He rolls easily and it hard to resist playing with, great mode this.

Robot mode: Easy transformation and you get a cute robot. Red, black legs, sliver and red head, black arms. Not a lot of detail, but that is actually a plus point, you'll be having too much fun to care about detail and his lack of posing. Only his arms move for posing, you might, if you're careful and gentle, make his legs into a pose, but it's not much. His head doesn't turn either...yes he's so much fun! Delightful toy, a wonderful reminder of the days before Beast Wars and Armada turned Transformers into a joke.

To remove the keyring, just undo the clasp and slide it out, that easy. He's better as the toy he should be than a keyring anyway. I hope I find the rest of these, love them, here's hoping for Bumblebee someday. Excellent, a true Transformer from the days when Transformers were fun and truly Transformers.
