    Classics/Universe Huffer wip(UPDATE)

    A lot has been happening and I haven't had the chance to work on a lot.So I decided that for the new year I would try to finish up on some projects that I've started and just never got around to finishing.

    This is the first.Classics/Universe Huffer!!!!
    I started this back in the summer with the help of my good buddy Spoonman.I actually saw one that he was working on and started one of my own.I got stuck on how I wanted to do his legs and just lost interest in the project over time.But a couple of weeks ago I was messing around with him and everything just seemed to start clicking for me so I decided to finish him up.

    He's made from Universe Inferno,Universe Prowl and Movie Mudflap.The head is based on the Dreamwave version and was made by Spoonman.Once again I didn't want an exact g1 version.I'm going for a more updated look for him and also trying to beef up the little guy but still have a g1 feel.

    So that's it until I get him finished up.Still a lot of work left but just wanted to share the little guy with all of you.Hope you like what you see so far.



    UPDATE: 01/27/10

    With the weather sucking out here right now I haven't been able to paint any commission projects so I've been able to work a little more on this guy.Still a lot to go but I'm liking the progress so far.

    It's creative, but something about the legs bother me. Its like he doesn't have feet, but still thats all I see, but this does look promising. So keep us updated.

    Not bad, Rafe! Could be better of course! Would love to see his weird smokestack arms instead. And I agree with Ezilla82, something about not having feet is just off. BUT, I really like spoonman's sculpted head and the use of Inferno. What a great idea! You can do it man, finish this baby up!!!...

    Thanks you guys for all the comments. Now let me explain about the feet.Because Huffer is such a downer,the other Autobots don't really want him in the field.So while he was being reformatted,Ratchet "accidently" forgot them.Just kidding.I am working on them right now. I think I'm going to go with a style like the RID build team figure that everyone uses for Hook for Devastator(I can't think of his name right now).I think that would be the best way right now.Just remember that this is a wip and not the final figure.I just wanted to share what I have so far.
    I actually thought about doing them.they may still happen.Right now I'm just tryin to figure out the legs first because that's the hardest part for me right now.I guess we will see.

    Talk about an upgrade...Huffer has grown in size!!!

    Looks great...I wonder what this would look like using the undersized KO that is out there?
