Spychanger variants have nothing on the Minibots really, do they?

Has there ever been a Bumblebee in purple, foreign production or custom?

Mexican Sears apparently.

Ras found that out but he'll include that info in his own article when he does it.

Brilliant- Looking through the site Maz has a enviable ability to take what should be a very dull and dry subject and actually make it interesting, mainly as his own enthusiasm shines through.

A beautiful assessment of the seekers. VeryÖ..meticulous. Love that it also fills in a lot of the blanks about the Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet molds. It easily rivals Fredís Complete Variants painstaking reviews of the seekers - as seen here: http://www.geocities.com/futuristgroup/vjet.html

Iím really loving this.

Thanks for the awesome feedback guys, but there's more...

Added the following scans to the article...





To find out what this is all about, just scroll back to Part 2 of the article where all is revealed

All the best

Ramjet and Thrust came off quite well in those earlier colours and would probably have done alright -- Dirge... well, they really weren't trying too hard to get him picked up by retailers...

And maybe that's why he was never mass-released in stores in Japan

All the best
Maz...only available in Japan via mailaway in a US box until the reissue

Are there any clues as to where the new designs came from? The original toy(s) were F15s... were the Coneys based on experimental aircraft, or the whim of the toy designers?

I would assume (without any facts to back it up) that it was a desperate atempt to make it look less like six of the Decepticons were the same toy.

Couldnt agree more something that should rate on the interest scale somewhere between watching paint dry and observing the grass growing was actually a great article and a highly informative read on one of my favourite types of TFs.
Im loving your work Maz your devotion to the subject is to be applauded.

I swear, one of these days Maz is going to show up with the original prototype for Diaclone Battle Convoy or something.

Is this hypothesis based on inside information, by any chance?

£4.95 on that Ratchet. Argh.
