Awesome japanese franchise that much of America has never heard of! Twinbee (blue ship) and his companions Winbee (pink ship) and Gwinbee (green ship) are so FRIGGIN' CUTE! XD And Winbee's pilot "Pastel" and Gwinbee's pilot "Mint" are also very kawaii. You could probably tell which pilot is which in the picture. Anyway, basically, right now, anything Twinbee is the [bubble lead] for me. And I love Twinbee's voice!!!! Even though I can't understand ANYTHING that comes out of his mouth. America's first introduction to Twinbee was in 1987 when the second Twinbee game was released in North America under the name "Stinger", and the second (and most recent) exposure to North America the series has gotten was where the game was included on the Konami Arcade Classics Collection for the Nintendo DS, where it was called Rainbow Bell (I don't know why they just couldn't call it Twinbee). Anyway, these are the Twinbee games I currently own!:

Twinbee (Famicom)
Stinger (NES)
Twinbee 3 (Famicom)
Twinbee Da!! (Game Boy)
Detana!! Twinbee (PC Engine)
Pop'n Twinbee (Super Famicom)
Twinbee Rainbow Bell Adventure (Super Famicom)
Twinbee Taisen Puzzle Dama (PlayStation One)
Twinbee Deluxe Pack (Sega Saturn)
Mini Famicom No. 19 - Twinbee (Game Boy Advance)
Twinbee Portable (PSP)

if you see Twinbee Portable for PSP anywhere on ebay, I highly recommend it! Plus you don't need to buy any extra crap to play it, because the PSP isn't region protected. :D

A Twinbee anime OVA called "Twinbee Paradise" was also made, and the theme song to it kicks so much ass. I'm surprised there was never any Twinbee toyline (Or at least none I know of!)
