    So here be my Classics Huffer head!
    May not be the final result but so many of you guys voted, I just had to get something up.
    I purposely made the head a little smaller to add some serious bulk to him, plus the inside of his "hood" area will be beefed up with some styrene to fill in all the empty space.
    This little big guy is turning out SO much more intricate than intended (specifically the inner workings of the cab/chest cavity) but I'm having a ton of fun doing it!
    Off I go, back to work!
    Oh, and no. You will NOT see those hinges when it's completed :)

    Looks good. But would it be better to fill in the empty spaces under the hood?

    The head is mostly styrene but I had a BigLots knockoff set of small scale Cybertron Starscreams and Vector Primes (2ea) that combined! Friggin wierd! So the head came off a vector and sculpted the face using green stuff.

    Just gonna fill in along the seems to give it more stability in the structure. Plus if you look at Dreamwave Huffer, his hood is pretty solid. So it's more for function and less for aesthetic.

    Looking real good, esp. the "hood" behind his head. Can't wait to see the completed one!

    *Rubs eyes* I appologize, but I for some reason I just can't tell how he Transforms. In the third picture, are we looking back through the front windshield of the semi? -Or does he use a more 'traditional' Huffer Transformation and we're looking UP through bottom of the cab?

    Sorry, I don't know why I can't tell...
    Love the character, love the figure, love your custom!

    Aha! My engineering skills are genius! Well, maybe average-You are looking through the windshield behind his head. He wears the front of the cab as a backpack, just as it would look if he were a truck. Glad you guys like, Thanks!
