    Hey guys,

    I've got some exciting news for those of you who are interested in the South American Minibot variants and history, specifically regarding Peruvian minibots.

    I have very recently received scans of Peruvian techspecs from cardbacks and a good deal more information that may well help resolve the whole Lynsa vs HUDE/BASA debate as to who distributed these.

    Pictures have been added, dedicated researchers and contributors credited, here's the updated article:

    All the best

    Good grief... every time I think I know every flipping thing there is to know about TF toys, one of Maz' articles comes along and puts me squarely in my place.

    A great read - thank you!

    Eh, it's cool fellas, as the bump was on topic :) 

    I'm glad it was bumped, because I missed out on this the first time out, and I've scanned Maz's site over pretty well through the years :)

    Hah wow, look what got dragged up from the depths :lol 

    At least I did actually manage to add to this section of my site this year with the Peruvian Huffer article, I still have a stack of orange/yellow Peruvian Gears pictures from almost 2 years ago that I need to make into an article.

    All the best

    Yeah. I couldn't help but revive this one. All you see is recent toys and I found out about these because of Maz's articles anyway. It is extremely interesting. To think that someone actually picked these color choices lol

    MAZ, you have unearthed some long-forgotten memories. I had a peach Bumblebee as a kid. I always thought Ramjet had beeny first TF, but I was wrong. I don't know where it ended up. Makes me wish I'd taken better care of it.
