Been working on a 1/24 scale movie-fied G1 Bumblebee and Cliffjumper for some time now. Finally got Cliffjumper finished. Basically a hybrid of the movie look and CJ's G1 robot and alt modes. Used a 1/24 1978 Porsche 924 Turbo model kit as well as a Bionicle skeleton and bits from Gundam kits, sheet styrene, miliput, and etched brass.
The head was a real challenge and a lot of fun. Used everything but the kitchen sink on it, I think. Modified Lego, Gundam parts, a piece from a mini Y-wing from an old Star Wars Hoth model kit, the rear view mirrors from the Porsche model, etched brass aircraft detailing bits, as well as parts made using styrene and some milliput sculpted parts.
This non-transforming maquette stands at just over 7.25 inches, making him about 14.5 feet tall in the real world. At least 19 points of articulation. Painted with Tamiya Flat Black and Italian Red and detailed with acrylic and enamel paints. The red car parts were finished with future floor polish. The Autobot decal is from reprolabels.
My goal was to keep the basic shape of the G1 toy. I also wanted to keep him as short as possible. Like the short tough guy, fitting his character. Kinda stocky, like the movie Twins (yuck) were.
Had a lot of fun working on this one. Thanks for taking a look!
