Bumper (aka Bumblejumper)

After posting Bumblebee and Cliffjumper yesterday, I got thinking about the "secret" third little car brother.
In Japan, these three toys shipped in three different colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue.
Bumblebee was a Volkswagon, Cliffjumper a Porsche, and the third a Mazda Familia.

Here in the states, you could occasionally find a red Bumblebee, a yellow Cliffjumper, and really rarely a yellow "Bumblejumper" Mazda snuck in...

I've honored the third color option of blue, which was also how he appeared in the MicroChange toy pamphlets!
