Nice pic Turbo. I love those IGA minis. I'm partial to Puffer but they're all cool.

Brav-O, Sir!

Here are a couple of side by side pics of the EHobby Roadranger with the iGear black Rager.

Congrats! If I got those white and blue AFAed Bees from the same seller, I might not have had the courage to open them, hehe.

Ugh, I still keep kicking myself for not jumping on those lots of deadstock IGAs that flooded eBay some 10 years ago. White Bee, Blue Bee, White Windy, White/blue Puffer and Maroon Gears (Swerve) were available for some $200 total... and now I find myself spending that for each! And in worse condition, too! Lol!

You aren't kidding Fighbird. I thought I was crazy for spending over $100 for a US Bumblejumper. The prices for the Mexican / South American minibots blow that out of the water. I'm glad that I limited myself to collecting Huffer. I couldn't afford to collect all the minis. Well I could but it would mean not having a G1 collection and my G1 collection isn't going anywhere.

Great pics brr-icy. I like those G2 metallics. I wish that Huffer would have gotten some G2 treatment.

As I already posted in the Huffer variation thread, today was a great day for my Huffer collection thanks to a fellow forum member. I added the new with the old and took some pics.


1st release + 2nd release Micro Change.

G1 prerub, Mexican blue/white, European blue/white, Greek dark orange.

Greek dark orange + eHobby Roadranger

Original + reissue Takara


Also, here is a pic of my G1 minibots.

Was checking out the aforementioned Huffer blog, enjoyed my time there, Mr. 2punish.


My Huffer - proud papa since 198x.
