    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?

    I think Hubcap also has a slightly different front end. It doesn't have that Y-shaped indentation on the hood like Cliffjumper has.

    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.
