That is at least 1,000x better than Xt's effort. Good stuff.
Bravo sir, bravo. It's perfect and looks amazing next to Huff!
Well to be fair, this would never have existed without Stax. I think theirs also suffered from having to be a remold of Krank. Throwing any considerations to Huffer out the window is what allowed me to be so accurate to G1 Pipes.
Cheers matey! Sizewise the oversized KO cab turned out pretty good. I'm glad because although I could have used a Cubex cab for this project, I really didn't want Huffer and Pipes to look like identical vehicles
Pipes turned out wonderfully! Amazing build and fantastic paintwork! Great job!
This is amazing. Epic slow clap for OptimusTimelord!
Pipes was/is my favorite G1 Minibot by far. Your work is just... just... oh, man. I want one! Looking at it brings tears of joy to my eyes.
amazing work bro
Cheers! I wondered if it was worth bothering to strip the chrome just to repaint it shiny silver, but had to do something to match the new exhaust cannons - really happy with the arms now and glad I did it.
Ha ha, glad to be of service Can't honestly say I would have tackled a Pipes custom if it weren't for Stax. And doing the research for this I was surprised how little Pipes was used during the G1 toon and comic era, even the toy was sort of a throwaway re-use of Huffer, but I've come to appreciate him a lot more than I used to
Oh, forgot to mention:
Work in progress thread here.
This came out great, very impressed! The paint work is really top-notch.
I really like this. Hard work pays off. Excellent job!
fantastic Rich! Just got a chance to see all the pics on a real screen and not my phone. Pipes looks great! the circle is complete.
edit: I keep going back to look at it. effing great!
Just saw this. I thought I loved Stax as he was, but this takes him to a whole new level. Amazing work as always!
Ha ha, cheers Ninos. That means a lot The circle is complete indeed
Thanks bud. I realise there will probably be lots of people who prefer Stax as he comes, but for me it's been fun to really amp up his G1 levels!
VERY nice...gorgeous blue on there too
Just bought the KO to do the same thing. Great work man!!!
You should be proud of yourself! Pipes looks fantastic!
If you made five of these amazing pieces of plastic, I would buy all five. Looks so good! Pipes has been needing some love!
Thanks, yeah it came out well. There's a metallic fleck in it
Five?! A Pipes army...
not even HasTak could have done better that is perfect
this is the pipes x transbots should have made! awesome custom want one
Ha ha cheers bud!
It's definitely how I wish they'd made it!! Then again, I wouldn't have had the fun of doing this project if they had
