    Another one looking great. Kingdom going out with a bang! Definitely looks better than Huffer. Although I always prefered Pipes colors over Huffer anyway.

    I can’t really remember the character from the cartoon, but he looks good. I’m usually reluctant to get two of the same mold (not that I haven’t) but he certainly isn’t just a recolouring of Huffer. Plenty of different sculpted detail in robot mode, and I like the little blue truck. And good of them giving him a different style gun to Huffer, although I don’t think they’d have got away with the Huffer blaster with a guy called Pipes. (I might not remember the character but I’ve seen online pictures of him aside from this toy.)

    Not just that, but revenue. For every click, every stream of the YouTube reviews... It's money. It's advertiser-friendly, there's no reason for it to be blocked, banned, or demonetized... Pure, clean, free money.

    What Chefatron will make back in clicks/views will offset the cost he paid (extra) to obtain these and then some. Same with PvP. It's not just about clout and having them first, it's about the revenue. You can make some big money on YouTube if you do it right. And you don't even have to be one of the big names to make money on there.

    Between this and Patreon-type stuff, some of these YouTubers are rolling in dough. (Not all, of course.)

    PIPES WILL HAVE 2 GUNS. THIS IS AN UNBOXED FIGURE OBTAINED BY MEANS OTHER THAN "PURCHASED COMPLETE OFF THE SHELF OR FROM A REPUTABLE E-TAILER".

    In other words, the durp who stole it from the factory only stuffed 1 gun into his shorts when he was busy smuggling it out.

    I was under the impression that there was going to be another Kingdom wave after this one.

    I would think it does since the promo art for him shows two. Most likely the worker who snuck this from the factory only managed to grab one quickly.

    There's still a "Puffer" coming according to rumors, right? Or is this what that was supposed to be?

    Looks promising, but will have to wait for better shots (especially transformation wise, as it seems it isn\'t fully done). The paint needs some work - seems like far too much white on his sides right now.

    It all comes down to how this compares to Toy Robots MFT-06, which I consider the best Pipes so far (not perfect, but best balance between show & g1 toy style simplicity - also it has a place to store is arm gun pipes while in vehicle mode)

    I hope it only has one gun, so I can pretend he uses his missing weapon as an icebreaker/conversation starter as part of some James Bond level seduction tactic.

    "Why are you called "Pipes" when you only have one pipe?"

    "Funny you should ask that..."

    Smash cut to Pipes and unknown character smoking in bed.
