    So I had to make a Huffer to go with my other Minibot Brawn. I used the 2 Pack Prime for Huffers base and made some modifications. First thing I did was pop off his head and give it to my own Cybertron mode Prime (now he has interchangable heads :)  ) I used the remainder of Lockdowns head for the face and added a mought and used Lockdowns mouth as Huffers chin. I resculpted the back of his head and gave him a neck. Sincce huffer had a single window I removed the center section of Primes chest then refilled with sculpt to make a single window. After all the sculpt and piece adding was finished I sprayed him with a base of Orange Krylon then did everything else in Citadel acyrlics. I tried multiple time to create a hood for Huffer but came up with no success they either didn't look right in one mode or the other. Chiptimus Prime actuall seen my WIP photos on Photobucket and suggested I just raise the roof vein and set it flat against his head thus creating a silouette.

    It's nice too see another minibot getting some love! Huffer's got to be my favorite lil' guy... Although I'm not a big fan of the single-paned window, it's accurate to the original figure (who also had a single-paned front windshield). -Just a personal preference, taking NOTHING away from your job here... Love how you used Prime's lightbar to bring in Huffer's 'cab covering head thingie'...

    I'd love to see what he'd look like using the Cybertronian-mode Prime figure... And again, that Brawn kicks all sorts of ass too!

    That looks fantastic. I love the face. People are doing some really clever things with Lockdown's head/face. Alt-mode looks nice too and that shade of orange is great. Nice job all around. Ditto for Brawn.

    Impressive, my only gripe is (as with the Kup repaint we saw) Lockdown's chin. It just look so huge off Lockdown.
    Everything else is great & spot on, but I wonder if there is a way to make LD's chin smaller without losing the over all look.

    I like how the vehicle mode is almost all orange but the blue shows up quite a bit in bot mode. The single window is sweet too. The isn't really doing it for me though. All in all a darn good job on this one man

    Wow, looks great. I wasn't that happy with my animated Huffer's head, now I'm really unhappy with it. Your work is always top notch. Can't wait to see what you roll out next.
