This article is about the evil Malignus. For the (presumably) heroic Eletrix, see Jipe (Eletrix).

Jipe is a Malignus from the Generation One continuity family.


Jipe (pronounced "hee-pay") is a member of the evil Malignus, who is opposed by the heroic Optimus robots. One incarnation of him also hangs out in Axiom Nexus as a member of the Malignus Revolutionary Army.

"Gonna bust you up, fascist! The Malignus Revolutionary Army takes no assassin prisoner!"
―Jipe earns his Che Guevara t-shirt while threatening Jackpot, "Gone Too Far"

Note: The toys from the Brazilian sub-series commonly referred to as "Optimus vs. Malignus" do not have bios, but share the same names and molds as previous (factionless) Brazilian releases that used the same bios as their Hasbro counterparts, only in Portugese. As such, it's possible that Jipe is basically "evil Brawn". This also raises the possibility that the "good/evil" designations are retroactive for the Brazilian toys....


Fun Publications Timelines

Jipe was one of the Malignus Revolutionaries that chased down Jackpot and Hubcap after the assassination of Gutcruncher. Jipe's misguided quest for vengeance led to a number of humiliating setbacks, including being kicked in the face and having a car thrown at him by Jackpot. Gone Too Far


Generation One

  • Jipe (Mini Vehicle, 1985)
A redeco of the Mini Vehicle Brawn, Jipe transforms into a (somewhat altered) Toyota Land Cruiser. He was released only in Brazil by Estrela, and was available in two different color schemes: blue with light gray robot parts, and black with purple robot parts. He also has a new "Malignus" faction sigil decal in robot mode.
All of the "Optimus/Malignus" Mini Vehicle releases are considered fairly rare, and go for a fairly high price on the secondary market, particularly the secondary color schemes; in this instance, the black/purple Jipe goes for more than the blue/gray.
This mold was also retooled to make Outback.
