    With the floods of KO's we're getting these days, why hasn't one of these bootleggers figured out how to make a decent Bumblejumper/Bumper yet? It seems as though it would be relatively simple to do (they're already doing Wheeljacks, Mirages and dinobots without the original molds). Also, given what the original still sells for, it seems like there is a lot of money to be made for whoever figures it out first. Just thinking out loud.....

    If i had to guess he isn't as well known save to hard core G1 collectors and there the KO makers maybe totally unaware of him or decide there isn't enough profit in it.

    Because they need to do Dinocassettes first.

    My thoughts exactly. A couple of days ago I went through a couple of scenarios in my mind in which I would choose a KO in front of an original G1. The ones I could come up with included stuff like the Dinocassettes, Black Tracks etc. But also Bumper. And yeah, I would buy a KO of him in the 30 bucks range. They should also offer him in various colors, like the brazilian ones; white, green, blue and stuff like that.

    Maybe there are KOs, but nobody has found out? Just hazarding a guess here

    There would have been discussion as the products popped up on eBay or wherever. A glut of new MOSC vintage-looking product makes a splash in the community every time it's happened.

    Cause there isn't much of a demand for these figures. Rare does not equal popular and a great seller.

    I woulnt mind some different colored Bumblejumpers, set up next to my yellow one. I think they would look pretty cool.
