    yesterday i was in a local town and went to the flea market there as there is a stall that always has some transformers, while there i saw this MOSC white cliffjumper. Does anyone know anything about this release?

    i'm just curious about this as it is the first time i have seen one of these

    It's the Mexican (am I wrong?) version of Cliffjumper I think. Different countries got different colours (green, white, blue etc). I believe it's pretty rare. I know someone bought a lot of Mexican minibots, and said they were a grail of some sorts.

    No it is not Estrela. It says Antex right on the package which means it is from Argentina, and no they are not rare. In fact back in the late 90's they found a wharehouse full of these things, and they are everywhere. I remember one dealer literally had thousands of them at the FX show in Orlando back in 1998 or 1999.

    i just don't feel like blowing that much money at once on a figure that i'd take out the package anyway

    QFT.

    There is a BIG difference between the Argentina minibots and the Brazilian ones. This one shouldn't go for more than a few bucks, unfortunately.

    NOT RARE. I hope you didn't pay more than a few bucks for it.
