    I thought some of you might be intersted in this as I remember there was some mini's collectors up in here plus I got a couple questions, in the auction it says they were store exclusive toys does anyone know if this is true? I remember for years the only Blue BB to ever surface that was not Microman was the one on Toyarchive.com but no real info was provided, Does anyone know any info on why these were released in these colors? As Wincharger and Brawn,Huffer I figure IGA was being cheap and just used the same molds to create Tailgate and Outback,Pipes but a White or blue BB just makes no sense? The same goes for the Blue Cliffjumper and Yellow Wincharger released by IGA.

    These links have info on them:

    Incidentally, I recognise the pic in the auction, I saw on Ebay in the last 18 months or so, can't remember if it's the same Seller though. They didn't sell when I watching them, so it might be the same guy.

    Only ones I've got are the Antex green Cliffjumper, and yellow Windcharger. They were MOSC, but as ever I opened them. Quality isn't up to HasTak standards, Cliffy's a bit loose, and both have flimsy plastic, but they display well.
