    The tenth release in Takara's Encore series gives some of the Autobot's more minor characters a second chance to shine- with exciting new paint applications too! Four of these five Minibots were originally released in 1986 (Pipes, Tailgate, Outback and Swerve) and came from the pocket money end of the toyline. Aside from Bumblebee (also included in the set), the four were extensive retools of the Minibots Brawn, Huffer, Gears and Windcharger. This largely involved the addition of new faces to the moulds, although Pipes represents the most extensive difference to his mould-mate Huffer. As a selcetion of Minibots had been re-released a few years previously, Takara opted for giving the Encore line something new for those collectors who'd previously forked out for the earlier set, throwing in Bumblebee to no doubt enhance the profile of the set (although it is a shame Hubcap - from the same assortment as the others - lost out).

    The Minibots themselves are a series of 'Super Deformed' figures based on real vehicles. They originate from Takara's Micro Change line (a Japanese off-shoot of G.I. Joe known in the US as Micronauts) and were supposed to represent toy vehicles in a series of 1:1 scaled figures that also included r
    robots that turned into locks, binoculars, microscopes, dictation equipment and firearms. This lead to a bit of fudging for the Transformers fiction for which they were licensed, with the vehicle forms being the same size as the likes of Prowl and Sideswipe, with the robot forms being smaller than the larger figures.

    The set itself is one of the cheaper and more readily available offerings from the Encore range, mainly due to the less recognisable nature of the characters.

    I bought this item as a collector and the only thing that I was disappointed about was that apart from the pack containing the original Bumble Bee, the rest appear to be 2nd generation clones, which makes it a bit pointless really. If would have been so much more desirable if the whole pack contained first generation only.

    Review: Transformers Encore Minibot Set with Bumblebee 8 Jun. 2010

    They are the same great toys the original where back in the '80s, I'm sure there are slight differences from the originals (due to new safety laws and similar reaons), but after so many years I can't really tell.
    They are great toys for those who loved them back in the '80s, for those who became fans after that and love the originals, and it's also a great gift for a kid today, so they can get into the Transformers universe.

    This a great buy, I put it on my collection. It's great to have an 84 version of bumblebee and mini bots just the way they were in 1984

    This is an awesome toy to have for the collector. Only bad thing is that it is not in English.
