    Hey everyone! I wasn't able to spend a lot of time on this guy, as inspiration struck (and I got over my bout of procrastination) a few days before this year's Dairycon! I actually finished him up the night before we left for the show, so he's still a little rough. -But I love him just the way he is!

    I decided to take one of Dairycon's much-loved characters and create a "Nemesis" version of him. The original Heffer is made from a G1 Huffer figure, so I took a Pipes figure and and reversed Heffer's paint scheme... OK, so I swapped the black and white spots on him (not to mention having to get a little creative regarding Huffer & Pipes "reversed" transformation)...

    As on display at the Dairycon Art Contest:

    Unfortunately I didn't place this year, but the Staffers at Dairycon sure loved him!

    Compared to the original Pipes (well, an Encore reissue that is):

    Thanks guys!

    Even though it didn't win the art contest, I was thrilled when people said they liked him, and when I received praise about him from the Staffers at the after-Dairycon dinner!

    I'm wondering if I might see a similar paintjob done 'officially' at Dairycon, what with the reveal of a few new Dairycon names revealed in the latest Dairycon fanfic, "CosMoo" and "Stears"... Both characters w/ cow-punned names, just like the original Heffer!
