    Nice additions bny888. I like the metallic colors of the G2 figures.

    Love some of those variants Maz. The blue & white Huffer and green & purple Gears are my favorites. The Joustra packaged figures are awesome needless to say.

    Oh Maz, you've given me more to search for, or cry about since they are so rare and/or expensive, and most of those are what I don't have, argggh, hehe.

    I have several pre-rub Windchargers, so I'll try to see if I have one with the upside down front grille, I do hope I have it, otherwise, argggh! :) 

    I think I'll just take your advice and focus on the Hasbro releases, less headaches for me. If I do that, I only have to look for Bumblejumper and the '85 yellow and red Cliffjumpers (I destroyed my red one when I tried to align the rubsign, what was I thinking? Hehe) and I can consider my Mini-bot collection complete.

    Thanks! Still looking for a minty decent priced Bumblejumper hehe. :)

    Got these over the weekend:

    G1 pre-rub/1984 red Bumblebee with Cliffjumper head:
    [​IMG]

    Looks like a factory error since the sticker at the back of the head is Bumblebee's, and I can detect no tampering, side view:

    Back view:

    Mint/unplayed with G1 1985 red Bumblebee w/ Minispy and full cardback:
    [​IMG]

    Mint/unplayed with G1 1985 yellow Bumblebee w/ full cardback:
    [​IMG]

    G1 Wheelie still sealed in the bubble, but the card was cut around it:
    [​IMG]

    I happen to have a cardback which came with a loose mint Wheelie I got before, so I taped it on it, voila!, MOSC Wheellie, hehe, then put it inside a Star Case Original:

    Mint/unplayed with G1 Outback w/ full cardback:

    Good heavens that is bloody fantastic!!!! I'd never seen that toy actually carded, I had only seen the Malignus Brawn/Jipe carded.

    All the best

    Thanks! :) 

    Amazing, I think that's the first MOSC Estrela Cliffjumper I've ever seen.

    Speaking of MOSC Estrela Mini-bots, here are some strange repacked ones, but they are in alt mode:

    Just got this guy in the mail, Dairycon 2005 exclusive "Crackup". Took a pic with a standard red Bumblebee to show off the color they used better.

    Yeah, I remember hearing of it, but long forgot until this one popped up on ebay. I probably paid too much, but as rare as it is, I had to jump on it. Supposedly only around 60 were made.

    I viewed the ended listings on Ebay and there are other Dairycon Mini-bots like Plot Hole and Barn, are there more?

    A few, there is also Nachos-bel-Grande another Brawn mold, and a couple Huffer molds one named "Heffer", and a Windcharger. The Dairycon is a pretty small convention, so none are very common.
