Taken from Takara's Microchange Micro Robot range. The vehicle modes were 'super-deformed'. One figure from the Micro Robot range, modelled on a Mazda Familiar 1500XG, was packaged on some Cliffjumper cards, but was not named as a Transformer. The character has since become part of the Transformers universe, being used as the character Bumper in Dreamwave's Generation 1 comic series. Red versions of Bumblebee and yellow versions of Cliffjumper (not to be confused with the 1986 Minibot Hubcap) also appeared.

Two Autobot figures from TF:TM. Rodimus Prime had a deliberately vague tech spec to avoid blowing the end of the film; Wreck-Gar appeared in the movie as a Junkion, but was marketed as an Autobot in the toyline.

|Reflector||Grey/black/blue SLR camera||Three robot modules - Spyglass, Viewfinder and Spectro - combine to form the camera.|
