We have begun collecting your personal thank-yous to Jeff Trojan at Playmates. It is time to let him know we appreciate the answers, insight, and information he has given us as well as his work on the Simpsons line. We also plan to customize a unique "Jeff Trojan" figure for him.

We recently found a Bumblebee Man miscarded on an Otto cardback at Toys "R" Us in Covina, California and a Bumblebee Man on a Moe card at WalMart in Salem, Oregon. Although these kinds of errors are often reported, the strange thing about one like this is that since there is no UPC on Series 3 cardbacks and no UPC on Series 5 inserts, the cashiers cannot scan this figure at the register as they normally would.

If you're still in need of any Series 5 figures, has them all for sale individually for a good price, $5.99 each.
