Default Show us your Ride!

You've shown us Yourselfes, and we've seen Your Pets now's the time to show us your ride!

I'll get it in gear so to speak, with Cliffjumper, my brand new 2012 Scion iQ

For those of you not addicted to G1 Transformers, Cliffjumper was based on a super-deformed shrunk down Porche. He had a big attitude and big guns, and managed to cling onto life in later incarnations by being passable as a red repaint of Bumblebee ;-)



Cliffjumper was also a hardcore badass in the comics, and in the latest series Transformers Prime) was a bright red Charger with chrome bull horns and was voiced by The Rock. Anyway, suffice to say he;s one of my favorite autobots. So, when I found myself shopping for a tiny car, I decided it MUST become Cliffjumper.

Here's what I started with...


Here's what I have now...


If you can't read it, the plate frame reads "G1 FOREVER" on top and "MICHAEL BAY CAN SUCK IT" on bottom.

Front and rear autobot badges are illuminated. Rear lights up red around the edge and is tied to brakes/tail lights, the front one glows white around the edges and is tied into the headlights.

The inspiration...

Yes, that's a limited edition Diamond Select mini-bust of Cliffjumper affixed to the dash like a cybertronian Jesus.

Can yours do an arrival from cybertron and pull a huge gun from out of nowhere as well?

Can't do pics of my actual, but it's factory standard so this'll do.

This is what I ride... As I make my living taking care of dogs it's perfect for me, converted the entire back seat section into a large trunk for all the dogs to be in. Tough car and very reliable though a bit too thirsty...

Ahh Cliff jumper, one of the great moments in the transformers Prime series was where Starscream ripped out his spark, decepticons FTW!

I admire your dedication to your favourite character, even if you picked the wrong side of the conflict

I drive a red chevy

Autobots. Always. The win button that is the dinobots can never be stopped.

I've got a couple gun related mods in already (A shift knob modeled after a revolver cylinder, and a bullet shaped antenna) with plans for others (gun barrel exhaust)

Plus he can sniff out a traitor like nobody's business.

If it works for you that's all that matters.

That's just begging to be sigged completely out of context

Hey, it's not our fault the Rock was too expensive to keep for more than five minutes of screen time. Truth be told though, most of my favorite characters were decepticons, but I can't drive pistols jet planes or micro-cassette recorders.

You can't argue with a giant rampaging space dinosaur...I mean, literally they cannot be reasoned with.

Sadly, neither here nor there though.

Way to set the bar Gal.....

This is a very cool car though, you've done cliffjumper proud. No longer shall he toil in the shadow of bumblebee's recolours.

I have a proper old man car (I actually bought it from my grandparents):



Not quite as exciting, but it would make an extremely covert Decepticon. No one would suspect a Rover....


This is my other ride:
