First Time I ever saw Ultra Magnus was the movie. To this day I've never seen a G1 toy in person, it wasn't until 2005 that I learned he was the same basic body as Optimus. I always had the misconception he was a totally different figure.

I at first thought that G1 Cliffjumper was a red repaint of Bumblebee, going off of the toys available when I became a fan back i Cliff or '07. Classics Cliff was red 'Bee, Movie Cliff was red 'Bee, every Cliff of that era was red 'Bee
Check me out on YouTube! I'm primarily a toy reviewer, but don't be surprised when a movie review or any other random video crops up.

Doesn't help that both he and Bee were released in red and yelllow variants, confusing the matter further. ;)

If he became a fan during Classics/Movie 1, he wouldn't remember Energon Cliffjumper since he wasn't a fan then.

And Animated Cliffjumper was too a red Bumblebee toy. While he did have a new head, the mold itself was still Bee's mold.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

No he's not. He's a measly Activator, same mold as Bumblebee minus the new head.

A new head doesn't change how big a mold is since the head is just one aspect of the mold.

A remold is still the same mold. One that now just has something special about it. :smile:
