    That ain't a bug, I'll for sure tell you that
    Looks more like a VW Passat.

    "Bug"? Bumper is a Mazda 323 (aka Mazda Familia 1500XG).

    I was under the impression that Bumblejumper was a term for either yellow Cliffjumper or red Bumblebee, but apparently that's incorrect, and the car in the OP is also not a porsche.

    I always thought "Bumblejumper" was the term for those miscoloured BB/CJ releases too. "Bumper" was a minibot design that was unreleased in North America, right?

    I suppose TFwiki would sort this out for me.... :redface2: 

    I like stumbling across authentic G1 cars in real life. Diaclone Bluestreak used to park a block away from me. The first time I saw it, it was like looking at a giant toy.

    Not that giant though... the Fairlady Z is a tiny car.

    I actually know what sort of car it is guys, it's a first generation Mitsubishi Chariot/Spacewagon. It just looks too much like Bumblejumper/Bumper from behind to me.

    Nevermore is right, the toy is based on the Mazda Familia 1500XG.

    The pink spots by the rear lights scream "Scorch" to me.
