    Using a Universe Inferno, and both head and Helmet from Treadbolt I ,made another Minibot gone Mega.

    Huffer isn't a wuss in my collection. His toon head can get a more toy-esque helmet, preventing the shrapnel from the 'cons he's pummelling from hitting his face.

    His arms were from the Cybertron Jetfire, modified to be telescopic arms and Exhaust pipes. There isn't any partsforming (aside from helmet) the chest is sheet styrene attached to the backplate of Inferno. I decided to paint the windows black to differentiate him from the upcoming Grapple release.

    Wow, that was a Uni. Inferno? Awesome work! The head choice works great for him. I love the arms. Reminds me of Big-O's arms. Overall, excellent custom. :thumb

    ever see G1 Huffer?

    his arms are awkward.


    Big O was one of my favorite anime. I have to admit the look probably stemmed from that.

    That's great! I LOVE the arms, they're Huffer's quirky arms absolutely personified!

    Thanks everyone, I also wanted to mention that I loved Blacklion29's use of the Jetfire head in his Sector70 minibot contest entry as Huffer. That's why I chose to use it here.

    The wheels are cyb Landmine's, and there is a Pipes in the works as well.

    I LOVE THOSE ARMS they scream Huffer! With the cab over his head, this is instant Huffer, beautiful work AM. I do wonder about his size, how big is he?

    I really like in alt mode, the headlights and back of the cab (the bottom of his feet) has those black "brushes", really stands out from the orange. This is so awesome.

    7" tall i think. it's the universe Inferno mold if you have one. I have 3 projects for the toy. Huffer here is one of 5 of the mold I'll own. :) 

    thanks for noticing the paint , I was testing out some ideas I had, so he'd mainain the G1 coloration while giving him some depth.

    Thanks! I know you said Inferno, but I was still trying to do some guesswork while looking at his other parts! Keep up the good stuff buddy!

    That's pretty cool, getting me pumped to do a Huffer myself.

    toby this awesome
    love the build , u man cease to amaze me with your skills
    i guess that those are the wheels (cyb landmine ) that i sent back in the days ?
    ( i have more if u need)

    my only critic will b the paint , the front grill seems to washed imo
    but the orange is spot on !!!
    and i would like to see a smoother putty work ( ok ok so not only )

    i'de love to paint one of your projects !

    This is just short of awesome.


    ...and the reason i say "just short" is because the paint needs work.

    Otherwise, it looks fantastic.
