    Glad I got Hubcap. Really liking his colors, and I'm glad they bothered to give him a different headsculpt than Cliffjumper.

    I can't help but thinking how odd it is that they did such a good job with the yellow on a GS figure of a lesser known character while Sunstreaker, who is a better known and a mainline figure, got the treatment he did.

    Yeah, I must admit I felt a bit old too when I was doing that one. :D

    CJ mold in general is slathered with paint, so Hubcap is going to look more uniform compared to Sunstreaker. I've seen both Hubcap and Sunstreaker in person at local stores, and yeah, Hubcap definitely does pull off the yellow much better.

    Edit:
    Continuation of Ion Blasters comparison:

    The SL pegs and ports do actually work, unlike MW. However, still replaced the white 3d printed peg with a black resin peg. Also did some light sanding work and repainted with matte black lacquer spray.

    Has anyone bought the Nonnef upgrade parts for ER Trailbreaker? I've yet to buy "filler parts" for any of my figures; but I am considering it for TB.

    Wanted to know how they are first.

    Got Bug Bite in and here are photos of him and his ancestors. They're all just a little different in their shades of white and it is amusing that none of them have the same chest art.

    For reference, left to right: Mexican G1 White Bumblebee, Ehobby Bug Bite, Earthrise Bug Bite and Antex Argentina White Cliffjumper.

    I updated my post to list what they are. Should have done that originally. Thanks for asking.

    I had a budget choice of Hunt down bumblebee or pickup a second bluestreak.

    I went with bluestreak

    Color wise they're great, and shape and fit are also good. Same as his Hoist set from last year.

    @Tibra17 is my hero for helping me pick up a Bumblebee in a different part of the area.

    I love this guy! Unlike my Cliffjumper he tabs together solidly and he's not loose or floppy at all!
