    Homage to a minibot, but no, not a minibot.

    Those are really nice pics brr-icy. And for those who question the quality difference between the reissue keychain bots, and originals, your pics of Cliffjumper and Hubcap really show that difference off. Especially with the molding of the feet and legs.

    Haven't posted here for quite some time now. Just admiring the wonderful pics you guys have been posting. :) 

    Anyway, I recently got these three pre-rubs, yellow Cliffjumper, Bumblejumper, and red Bumblebee. I'm so happy to get these because the Bumblejumper completes my pre-rub Mini-bot collection, and the other two are Microchange molds (round Takara stamps a the bottom). :)

    Excellent! I'm glad that you finally found the right Bumblejumper for your collection. He looks minty fresh.

    I like the G2 minibots. I wish they made more than just the four of them.

    Awwwww heeeeell yeeeeaaaaahhh!!!!

    Incredible display, Justin. You've done that character great justice, and the Lynsa just tops that collection off beautifully.

    We need to find you a carded Puffer.

    All the best
