    ...for $45. Did I get him for a fair price, or have I been price-pwn3d?

    EDIT: Goddammit. I lied. It's actually the yellow cliffjumper. I thought he was bumblejumper.

    EDIT 2: For clarification, I got one of these: URL from TFU.info, so be nice and copy to new browser to see

    Still, good price or bad?

    your link isnt working for some reason, and i couldnt copy it into another window either....but this should work. Cliffjumper

    and yeah, you may have overpaid slightly, but not by much. i think we had a yellow cliffjumper in our store last month, but we didnt pay much for it, so we only sold it for 25....but still, if you like it, then its worth it....

    EDIT: apparently directly linking to the picture wont work....here's a link to the tfu.info site for anyone else though...

    I'd say that's too high for a yellow Cliffy. What does Bumblejumper run these days anyway?

    i believe the latest lee's guide puts BJ at about 100...and yellow CJ is about 45 in there as well....and theres only one on ebay right now, sealed, in the UK...for 100...so loose is usually around half of carded, so thats still not a bad price....

    I actually got bumblejumper last year to complete my g1 minibots (yellow cj and red bb not included) I kept my eye on ebay for quite a while, and ended up getting him for around $70 shipped, just to give you guys an idea. having him in dreamwave's books did a lot to bump up my desire for him, so I finally bit the bullet. haven't been able to open the package yet, as it's 1200 miles away, but I will in a month from now. hooray!

    you wanna hear a funny BJ story?

    a few years back, my best friend was so excited to show me and another TF geek his vintage bumblebee, and when we saw it...we both had this odd look on our faces...looked it up in the guide book i had, and sure enough, it was BJ....my friend was so sad, cuz we thought it was kinda funny, but now the value has seemed to jump alot. i may have to let him know, though he'll probably keep it. he's got a few vintage TF's around his place...

    Got my yellow CJ at the thrift store for 35 cents in a bag of hotwheels. I didn't have BB or CJ yet so I said why not it will make a good placeholder untill I get the duo. Glad I did.

    The yellow cliffjumpers and red bumblebees are fairly common on ebay.

    Bumblejumper on the other hand goes for at least $55 loose. MOSC forget it the last one on ebay went for over $1300 dollars!

    I got my Bumblejumper for around $40, which is exactly what I expected to pay. Yellow Cliffy OTOH shouldn't cost more than the other minis, $5-10. I sold one a while back for like $6. So yeah, if you got a yellow CJ... you got hosed. :(

    I actually made the same stupid mistake. I first bought a yellow cliffjumper thinking it was Bumblejumper. Paid $15,- for it. Then last year I finally got a nice Bumblejumper of ebay.nl for aroun €50 I think. A little more than I had hoped for but reasonable.

    I'm still looking to exchange my yellow cliffjumper for a mint red one if anyone's really interested.

    Wouldn't yellow Cliffjumper basically be Hubcap? Or is it a different car or robot face?
