One of the more famous oddball Transformer figures in history is Bumblejumper. The name Bumblejumper was a fan based name given to the Takara Microman transfromable that was placed by accident in Transformers packaging. "Bumble" being taken from Bumblebee and "jumper" taken from Cliffjumper. The toy itself as you can see if completely different than Bumblebee, Cliffjumper & Hubcap. The figure never was meant to be produced as a Transformer, and does not have its own Transformer packaging. Bumblejumpers have been found carded on Cliffjumper cards as well as Bumblebee cards. But personaly, I have never seen or heard of a Bumblejumper on a Bumblebee card, so I think that is a false assumption made by earlier cataloggers.
    The toy is beleived to be released only in the early shipments of Transformers Mini-Bots. No Bumblejumpers on later series cards have been found. Being as tough to locate a Bumblejumper, a MOC one is much tougher.
