    Folks:

    I've read one or several words online urging a Huffer redeco
    of Cybertron Armorhide. The trouble is, he doesn't look like
    the G1 toy, nor does he resemble the G1 cartoon model.
    However, if you take a look at page 2 of the old
    'Decepticon Patrol' coloring book (available at your nearest
    Steve-O Stonebraker Transformers book site) you will
    discover a completely different and completely ridiculous
    Huffer model, which I have used to make this little study
    here:

    (colored in to stretch mileage from this silly joke)

    Why, it's an _obvious_ homage! See how they interpreted
    the little square recesses and windshield halves on his
    legs? See how they 'squashed' his gun (a la G1 Hound's
    model) and confused the perspective on his shoulder
    wheels? They even left the wheels off his forearms and
    gave him robo-underwear like most of the 1984 Dery
    models! Yup. And if you still believe me I have a bridge
    to sell you, really cheap.

    Actually, what makes me think of Armorhide as a Huffer tribute is more in his build than anything else. He's the tough little guy Autobot, the head has a distinct Huffer look to it. Though, all things considered, I like him more as an individual.

    they should paint Armorhide up in G1 Ultra Magnus' colors... then maybe he'll stop whining and learn to deal with this now...

    I love it when people see homages where there really isnt any. I've had Armorhide for a long time, I still don't see any ressemblance with Huffer. Not a single thing. Nothin'.

    That said, that piece of "art" (it hurts me to call it that) is pretty funny. And by "funny" I mean "stupid and ugly".

    Alt mode is a bit of a Pipes homage, in that it's a blue COE. The bot mode makes me think of Ironhide. The head looks a lot like Ironhide's cartoon model, and the general barrel chested, stocky build reminds me vaguely of Ironhide.

    That said, painted black he'd make a good Motormaster, to antagonize my RM Prime.

    The head is a LITTLE huffer-ish, but overall not much of an homage.

    I think of Cybertron Armorhide as G1 Huffer just because I never had a Huffer.

    Huffer would never carry a gizillion missiles in his chest.

    I call mine Pipes, just cause I rename most of mine after G1 characters.
