    Will do, it never bothered me before, but for some reason I just feel the need to better differentiate krank from stax, and I now feel my skill level is appropriate to attempt this kind of build since completion of my Voyager classics/foc/idw Scorponok

    Any idea where to get the oversize Pipes KO for cheap in 2017? Or where to look as I'm not even sure who makes it or what the name of it is.

    Anyone else find it ironic that the KO has Overlord written on it considering that's who killed Pipes in MTMTE?

    Great custom. Always loved Pipes. My brother got him when we were kids and he mysteriously disappeared within a week.
    Back in 99 I picked one up very cheaply when I saw it in a collector's shop. I wasn't even collecting at the time.

    Forget Code of the Hero, Pipes' death was far more moving and he died a hero.

    Once again, great custom.

    So the oversize is around $100 now, don't wanna spend that! I've been out of the TF loop for a while... anything similar, for around say $20?

    I can't really say without looking, I'm out of the ko loop myself after I stopped kitbashing.

    One thing I've seriously thought about is using a Cubex Huff cab to replace the terrible design of the upcoming Badcube Pipes cab, but that will depend how compatible they are in size/shape (or if any other company comes along with a better MP Pipes).

    BTW thanks for all the comments on my custom folks, it was nice to be reminded of this project :thumb

    OK, so what's up with these guys? Anyone order from tf-toy.com?

    G1 Minibots Oversized Pipes |G1_Minibots_Oversized_Pipes| :
    G1 Minibots Oversized Set of 2 Convoy (Clear) - Transformers Beast Wars (Japan) [sirtoy677] :
    G1 Minibots Oversized Set of 4 Autobot Ratchet - Transformers Robot Heroes [sirtoy343] :

    All I want is Pipes. What's up with this crazy pricing. $79.00 for just him. 89.00 for him with 1 friend, $89.00 for him with 3 friends. Obviously, the set of 4 would be the best deal. I guess I can re sell the other three...

    Well, if I order the set of 4, does anyone want oversize Brawn, Windcharger, or Gears for 20 bucks a piece?
