    which is better for a huffer?

    PCC huffer i already own and comes with caliburst which is also g1 ...ish

    but then Armorhide looks pretty cool too ... (cant find the actual huffer ...)

    so which would better rep huffer on shelf?

    That Botcon exclusive Huffer is my favorite one. Her looks more G1 accurate than the PCC one.

    Too bad the Botcon Huffer is probably rare and expensive. My PCC Huffer doesn't fit that well on my Classics shelf. I find he sticks out too much somehow, I can't really put my finger on it.

    I really hope they release more scout/deluxe minibots in the next classics line. RTS Windcharger is awesome and it would be great if they could do more scouts like him and Frumble.

    I don't even accept most legends as a part of the main line classics anymore because they're just too damn small and out of place. Only ones I don't mind being that small is Wheelie and PE sized cassette bots.

    that huffer is great, except it is way too small, if it was like a scout yet, but he is legend size to my knowledge

    Unfortunately he is Legends. I like you feel the same dissapointment. If these guys where scouts I would buy them all. But, because they are Legends I will skip them all.

    It is a shame too cuz they are very nice looking.

    I love the botcon huffer. That mold is just fantastic for being such a small figure.

    Im in the same boat. Legends just dont belong on my shelves. Nothing against them, but that's just not what Im collecting.

    PCC Huffer isn't bad. He's actually quite nice with a little DIY work. I'd say Botcon 2007 or a custom repaint of Cybertron Armorhide works better, though.

    iGear's is probably the best at achieving the original look, but it's too small. I prefer my minibots to be more in the scout size, or larger. It has nothing to do with proper scale for me. I'm just not big on legends figures in general (unless they're target or headmasters).

    I use the Botcon version, but I've also got the Igear one on pre-order. I'm ok with having some Legends on the shelf so that aspect doesn't bother me.

    well i did look for the botcon 1 and no one was selling and yeah will likely be expensive, and that orange earth planet key makes it more enticing. but it seems armorhide might be way to go.

    hmm i suspose i could get it, and have the sector 7 1 as actual armorhide. his has a rare key too...

    but okay thanks i will get an armorhide then!

    Aww, I like PCC Huffer, all I did to him was paint his combiner pegs silver. He's not amazing, but he looks good with the other minibots. I guess I'm pretty liberal with who I include, though, especially when it comes to minibots- I like ROTF Beachcomber and HFTD Firetrap (as Brawn) too.
