    Got my Huff today from TFS Express. Very happy with quality, pose-ability and transformation. Plus he fits well with other MP.

    He needs a chest insignia and maybe a few stickers like hip flap stickers to cover the screw holes, I'm sure ToyHax will make those.

    The gap in the shins bugs me a bit. I wonder if someone can do a tutorial showing how to open up the halves, sand, glue, clamp etc (might do it myself if time)

    Nevertheless, recommended purchase.

    Normally, I would be happy to send it over for free, just asking for postage, but the PO mangled my Huff box.

    Whoa, that's a banged up box. Was it shipped from overseas?

    Received my BC Huff from netclow this weekend. Had a minor heart attack seeing that tracking had shown the box was put into the mail locker but no key was left for me. Thought perhaps the mailman put the key in someone else's mail slot. I taped a short letter to the lockers hoping they'd know what happened to the package - lo and behold, my key was in my mailbox after returning from our movie on Saturday. Yays.

    Anyways; yeah, this is a pretty sweet piece. I never expected to be happy to own a Huffer MP. Here's to hoping Toyhax is going to produce a sticker sheet because he desperately needs one.

    I just won't have time to print and sell this so.....MERRY XMAS! If you want the .stl file send me a PM with your email address.

    I printed mine on an Ultimaker 2+ 4mm nozzle at .06mm layer height, PLA. Also prints well at .1mm and takes around 10hrs. I've been using regular paperclips for pins so the holes are 1mm. Depending on your printer you may need to pre-hole the holes before putting the pins in. The screw on the back I used one of the screws leftover from the ShadowFisher Hip kits. I Gundam Marker the windows blue and it doesn't look bad. Just remember to sand down the windows or the pillars before painting so the paint doesn't seep.

    I have both. Their alt modes are kind "meh" IMO. I hope another 3P takes a shot releasing these two. After taking 2 years to release these after they were initially announced, I was expecting a bit more.

    Just got both of these guys the other day, and I really like both.

    I'm a bit torn between Huff figures, as I really like both a lot. They're very different figures, which is something I remember I wasn't expecting when we initially got news of the release of an updated version. Both do and are very different than each other while both being very much "Huffer."

    Piper is the Pipes I've wanted for some time. I'm quite the fan of XTB Staxx, but this figure is the one that matches the "cartoon" thrust of my Masterpiece collection.

    These are also the first figures from BadCube that I actually think are FUN to transform, too.

    About the gap in the shins, what glue is suitable that will bond without making a mess e.g. superglue can 'cloud' the surrouding plastic.

    How about Tamiya cement #87003?

    Anyone know BC contact to get some after care customer support? I bought Piper and he's missing his face with the blue eyes out of the box. I've tried to reach them on FB but no response.

    But I wouldn't get your hopes. The chances of them responding to end customers are next to 0. They refuse to do so. You will have to go through your retailer or source the parts elsewhere. They have 0 after sales support. @Devastator21 can vouch for this also.

    I don't like that, I've had some minor issues with FansToys twice and they have been brilliant.

    That's one of the reasons my MP Trailbreaker and Hoist are XTB and not BC.
