    Picked up the Stunticons-esque PCC set on super clearance cause I needed the connectors, but figured since it was just a repaint of huffer, I should make a Pipes with it. I didn't have another tiny little head, so this one will have to do, though I know it doesn't look particularly like Pipes. He couldn't stand at all with the PCC connectors cut off his heels, so I added some heels for him. This is actually a really cool little figure, I'm always impressed when I like scout class figures. Anyways, enjoy!

    Works quite well for an update on the G1 bot. If anything I'd say this toy makes a far better CHUG update than it does for Huffer.

    One thing I noticed though...

    If you look at the G1 art, his smokestacks were attached to the arms, and served as his weapons. There any chance you can make the smoke stacks such that they can be equipped onto his arms? It would complete that look really well.

    Again, good stuff man.

    That actually works way better than I would have thought.

    Nice color choices and a solid paint job will do that. Nice.

    Heck, even if they were partially cut on one side to fit over the small ones in alt mode it'd be cool.
