    Huff has hands that open and close. He also comes with a big rifle, and I think he has extra faces. But ten bucks more? Depends on how much you like the hands, faces, and rifles?

    They might have been near bankruptcy due to their concept line not doing well, releasing a series of figures that had stiff competition (Trailbreaker & Hoist), and the whole pandemic thing messing with things. Besides, to be honest, it wouldn’t surprise me if Magic Square had a significant connection to Badcube. A lot of their designs have the same feel to them.

    I do think it's funny that Swerve is £37, Grump £50 and Huff £55. Retailers are definitely pricing to sell/profit.

    Whilst I would have preferred a round £50 for Huff, or at least not to get smacked with shipping on top, it'll do.

    I hope this move brings them back on track. It would be sad to see BC go. All of the rereleases are good figures. Maybe they should think about doing the same with Steamroll. - Hopefully they'll surprise us in 2022 by being the first company to release ... Runamuck and Runabout. I'd place my preorder and pay upfront without hesitation!

    Man I didn't notice Pipes got put up. Awesome. Now I really hope they reissue Outback next, he's literally the only minibot I'll still need once I have all my current pre-orders.

    (Then I can start yearning for the throttlebots to get MPs)

    Despite IDW Pipes being my Pipes, I got myself a PO for this as well. Looks great, and it was something i've been hunting for a good while, haha.

    I too would kill for Outback to be reissued, with Brawn of course following. Same with Warpath as well.

    Does anyone have a Piper in hand that they would sell?

    Think it should be BadCube. There is a difference of 30 yuan (US$4.70) between Grump and Huff on TaoBao.

    He's somewhat hard to come by on the used market, but this PO might interest you:

    Hi, to anyone that has either Huffer or Pipes (or both): How big are they in vehicle mode? Like, height, lenght and width of the truck mode.

    Looks like Huffer and Pipes are incoming at showz. Countdown has started for both, just barely getting in before FT I guess.

    ShowZ why are you releasing every bot i'm on the fence about!? This was supposed to come out in June '22 last I knew. :confused: 

    Oh well, I'll still probably buy him since he's relatively cheap and an overall good figure but i'm still not 100% happy with how they have the cab hang off his back.

    As an MP Huffer, Huff is worth it. If you need Pipes, well, here you go.

    FT Rig might have nicer lines, but it'll cost you, and the complexity is what you're paying for. With Huff, I really don't notice the cab backpack once I had him posed with the rest of the G1 crew.
