    Great, now TakaraTomy can justify releasing a special white repaint of Bumble too.

    So since the white bug was originally a Go-Bot (Tonka, not Hasbro). Does that mean Herbie is a Go-Bot?!?! It all makes sense now.

    Yeah - I remember Penny Racers as well. I probably even have one floating around somewhere. I also seem to remember them coming back for a while in the '90s too.

    Hmmmm...... I wonder how hard it would be to mod some of the Pennyracers using an old Bumblebee, or Clifjumper for robot parts.......

    So does Nevermore have NO life or does he just NEVER sleep? He's like TFW2005's Commander Data...
