    I (try) only to collect classics figs or those movieverse figs that fit into my classics collection (Lockdown, Whirl, Lugnut, etc.)

    Anyway, I am traveling this week and decided to pick up the RTS G2 Optimus Prime (I know, I was bored). I seriously had no intentions of picking him up, but for $6.99, I decided to pull the trigger. While he is definitely NOT an Optimus as I would consider (I don't do G2), the fig is not totally bad, and the alt mode truck reminded me of Huffer or perhaps Pipes. Am I the only one that thinks this would work, or as I stated, am I just bored and needed something to transform while on the road?

    You're not driving the vehicle in which you are travelling, right?
    Just so we're clear that you're not playing with toys while behind the wheell...

    I think he goes better as Scourge. Booyah.

    As for those two, I dont think he goes well as them in either mode from the differences.

    I am driving the vehicle, however I waited until the hotel to bust him open... Didn't want to get in an accident and have the reason filed: Playing with his toy, was distracted, ran off the road...

    OK, I didn't realize what this sounded like when I was typing the first time...

    Bottom line, would G2 Prime work as Huffer, or Pipes? Anyone else?

    And no, I was not transforming ANYTHING while I was driving... :)

    Well the mold is way too small to make an impressive Black Convoy homage, it would be better as Huffer.

    Other than being a matching color and a truck no.

    Power Core Combiner Huffer makes a better Huffer. That is essentially Classics Huffer. RTS Deluxe Optimus Prime is a double homage to both G2 Laser and Movie. I would like to see a RID Scourge remain myself...

    "Bug robot"? but your sig is...

    I do agree that the figure isn't all that hot though. But a RiD Scourge/Black Convoy redeco is more than a given.

    I always like the Cyb. Armorhide mold myself. Can't afford the BotCon redeco, so I've got a repaint set for the Movie1 redeco, and Cyb. Armorhide set for Pipes. Little bit of paint, little bit of modding, and hopefully I can get it somewhere abouts here.

    I know customizing isn't for everyone though.

    How refreshingly polite. I agree, and as previously mentioned,PCC Huffer is a perfect Huffer.

    Huffer? Pipes? No way. Maybe if you squint and tilt your head to the left ever so slightly..

    The Botcon Huffer is still the best option out there... its just a bit pricey.

    That's REAL funny coming from someone with this in their sig... :lol

    oh and the fact that G2 Prime's head looks like, well Prime and not a bug

    Anywho, to the OP... No, RTS Prime wouldn't make a good Huffer or Pipes IMHO. I mean the ONLY thing RTS Prime has in common with either of them is the fact that he's a truck (not even a "cab-over" like Huffer and Pipes) that turns into a robot (one that looks NOTHING like Huffer or Pipes).
