    Well this project took way too long to complete. Started thinking about this in May 2008. sheeesh! Anyway, Huffer consists of a 1/32 scale Mercedes COE which I cast in resin to make it lighter on his back. The head is mostly scracthbuilt and alternator sunstreaker's face from the cheeks down. The chest is actually the aerodynamic roof that was originally on the truck, modified to look like huffer's chest with some added panel lines. Arms are courtesy of movie voyager ironhide, 1/72 warthog engines and alternator hands. His abs are also from movie ironhide parts. The Legs were donated by walscream which I had painted into thundercracker a few years back. Since I picked up the takara version, this fella was put on the chopping block. The shins are off a 1/24 pt cruiser underside. Feet are slightly modified bionicles'. Truck parts were commandeered off of other toy truck parts I had laying around. Paints are Modelmaster enamel and acrylics, Tamiya paints, duplicolor automotive paints and Krylon sprays.
    Thanks for checkin' him out guys.

    Ack! Huffer coolness overload!
    He's so huge!!!!

    Not to mention a pretty sweet update to G1 Huffer!
    My only critique? I'm not a fan of his feet, as they're more of a 'rounded' element than the rest of the figure, which is a bit more 'blocky'... (I hope that made sense!) Besides that though, I *love* this guy...

    Although, that all might have to do with my love for the character /toy in the first place... :)
