French/Belgium/Dutch based on the language. MB sold TF's in later years with a French and Dutch language bio card in France, The Netherlands (Dutch) and Belgium (Dutch and French); earlier techspec cards had only the function and slogan in four languages.
But I can't remember G1 Bumblebee being sold with such techspec card. Mine just had the four language card.
Considering the text of his bio (referencing him having a lot of experience and having overcome his small size and limited strength and now being one of the top spies of the Autobots) suggest a late release. A post Throttlebot release and thus post Pretender release.
IGA but released in Europe?
Loooks bright enough to be IGA yellow, but the tech fooled me. What's the other weird copyright on the bumblebee from?
Yeah, Made in Macau like Gold Bug. So I guess not IGA. Really confusing, hehe.
hehe yes IGA Bumblebee from the Netherlands, I also thought at first glance this was a normal BB but then realised the sticker and bright yellow could mean it was a variant. I think the seller didn't realize what they had, tech spec from action master BB and no mention of IGA in the title for the item.
Regarding the second image of the copyright for that BB.
We can eliminate that rubsign bumblebee in the second picture as being a Chinese reissue, still I can only come up with it being a Hasbro Europe Bumblebee, I never seen the copyright stamping for that....
edit: Im really starting to think this is for the iron patch BB or second wave BB with iron patch promotion.
Sorry for the image quality, my digicam's charger was acting up, so I had to use my mobile's camera:
So I received this "Bumblebeejumper" (as I call him) in a lot of minibots that I purchased. Upon initial inspection I thought that is was just a bumblebee body that someone put a bumblejumper head on. HOWEVER upon closer inspection, the Bumblejumper head has a Bumblebee sticker on the back of it (instead of the Cliffjumper sticker that Bumblejumpers normally have). Has anyone seen this before, or does it look like I stumbled on a possible factory error (that's what I think it is)? It does have a Takara stamp on the bottom of the foot, but no Autobot sticker on the chest (or signs a sticker was ever there). When I asked the original owner about it, he said that it was his from when he was a kid, and that he never took his transformers apart. All of the minibots in this lot were in FANTASTIC shape too. So what do you guys think? Honestly, I am thinking that a Bumblejumper head got mixed in the Bumblebee assembly line….
^I do have a red pre-rub Bumblebee with a Cliffjumper head, it's a factory error.
Swooped this up!
Bee is off to AFA, hope it pulls an 85 so I can scratch one off the list!
1984 Hasbro G1 Transformers Autobot Bumblebee Mint on Tech Specs Blister Card | eBay
It's always fun to look back on older collection photos to see progress in larger increments.
3 years apart.
I thought this thread was dead so havent being checking up on it.
Turboedguy that is a 'supercharged' collection you got there !
Got these lovely Dutch B.O.T.S from a local collector, makes me want to track down the other Chinese KO Brawn and Cliffjumper. Also got a reissue of the Choro-Q vintage pre-Microchange Cliffjumper
Got my first combiner wars toys, love the artwork for these two toys, I want to know who was involved in the creation of the artwork. Simply Beautiful!
Also used G1 Powerglide in the CW card, looks awesome imo
Great stuff guys, great images
All the best
Crappy cell phone pic of my bumblejumpers.
some nice items that are not sealed on card
Hasbro Europe minibots during the Milton Bradley merger, the previous owner when he was a kid used white out on the techspec and then stuck a computer print out over it. More whiteout and another Italian translation across the tech spec as well ><! Wish he didn't do this because these are freakin hard to come across.
Awesome stuff guys! I really like those KO keychains!
So... I finally got my Dairycon Windbreaker today. Im so used to them issuing repaints of existing G1 figures and Keychain minis, I expected them to do the same with this guy. Nope. its a repaint of the oversized KO Tailgate. Kinda disappointed, I wanted it to fit with the normal sized minibots, but oh well, Still a cool looking figure.
^ Ah that blows I thought it was G1 sized also.
