    So, first off, lemmie say it's good to be back. Havent been able to post or work on anything for a while. Lots of cool stuff going on here, guys! Great work as usual.
    My take on Classics Huffer.
    I wanted his truck mode to be in scale with Prime and bot mode to fit in with the smaller guys so I'm psyched I got that to happen.
    The cab is from Inferno with some heavy modding and 2 pack Primes arms. It all fits SO snugly inside when in alt mode, I love it!
    The chest and lower legs come from TRU Mudflap and the upper legs are from a classics Prowl.
    I had to widen the rear wheel posts to allow both Infernos tires.
    Drilled a hole inside the right leg so the peg on the opposite one would lock the legs together in truck mode.
    Still got alot of work to do, like filling in the back, top and sides of the cab, and and adding feet to him for more articulation and of course sculpt the head. All in all Im pretty happy with how its going.
    Lemmie know what you guys think!

    hey man, these parts flow together amazingly well, great job coming up with this! I think I'd go for an updated "classicsy" cartoon accurate head.

    COOL.

    He's gonna need some big ol' feet to keep stable, though. I'd suggest, since the feet are the rear of the truck, having them serve as the truck mode's rear fenders/mudflaps. 18-wheelers often have those big elaborate chromed rear bumpers, one of those splitting down the middle would make entirely serviceable feet.

    man i love all the frankenstein projects that are cumming out. they all look so original. this project is looking great and how you managed a voyager sized alt mode with a tiny deluxe bot mode is a great accomplishment. i think a g1 toon head is best but you could make both which would be pretty cool. I realy like the use of inferno in this bash, I had ideas using the cab too for either motormaster or hyperdrive. can't wait yo see this done.

    At first I was like...oh great, another Armorhide...but NO!!!!

    Way to bash a mold, this looks great!!! The moding to both the mold and trandformation is very clean. My only question is, will the hooded area remain clear, or will you paint the windows to opaque them?

    Great job all around.
