Title says it all
Does Bumblebee have a spoiler?
Looks like Hubcap or Yellow Cliffjumper.
Can't see the pic. If it has a spoiler, then it's a yellow Cliffjumper.
Yeah, has a spoiler. For the longest time I thought it was bumblebee. Looks like I need to get him now. What is the difference between the yellow cliffjumper and hubcap?
The spoiler and different head mold, I believe.
I think Hubcap also has a slightly different front end. It doesn't have that Y-shaped indentation on the hood like Cliffjumper has.
Hubcap does keep the hood indent.

The head sculpts are similar but not the same. Hubcap has an orange face and Cliffjumper has a silver one.
Here's a pic of Hubcap with the other yellow Mini-bots at the back, Bumblejumper, TF Collection Bumblebee, and Cliffjumper:

That's a yellow Cliffjumper. Hubcap's spoiler is flat.

off-topic, but you guys realize "Bumblejumper" was canonized as "Bumper" 8 years ago right? Even got an Animated counterpart with that name.
Reminds me that I still need to find a Bumper / Bumblejumper one of these days. Though perhaps not for the frankly terrifying cost they go for on the open market right now.
Same. I saw one that was either missing an arm or it was chewed up for $80 at BotCon in Orlando. That's the closest I've gotten. I passed but went back towards the end...someone picked him up.
While he is Yellow Cliffjumper, I like to call him Shattered Glass Tap-Out! The red Bumblebee is Shattered Glass Glyph.
I need a Bumper/Bumblejumper too. It's the only pre-rub Mini-bot I don't have.
Ain't no "Shattered Glass" stuff in my G1 collection!
