    Are there any other repaints that could be done? I think its super cool that we got these. They both look good. I wish eHobby stuff was still being made. They had some cool color schemes and designs.

    For the huffer mold? There's people who'd probably want versions of huffer and pipes with the toy-accurate heads, but those porbably won't be coming for a while now. Not much else

    IIRC Huffer has three or four South American variants that could be made.

    Road Ranger looks devilish with the black, orange and magenta colors! He looks like a BADASS! He is probably a no good brawler with a sociopathic streak that is an ill fit for the Autobots like Slag or Blades!
    Yes, I'm ignoring his GoBots heritage. Yes, I'm foaming at the mouth.

    Pretty happy about the mix and matched parts and coloration. It's a nice change of pace from the infinite army of Datsun, Lambo, Tetrajet and Fighter Jet straight repaints.

    Looking at them all, I'm wondering if I could cobble together one last "repaint" - an updated Wide Load.

    I still won\'t  watch  Chefatron  Or prime vs prime cause of stolen toys.   I think they are trying to milk the huffer mold  now  see what they can get out of it. We need a gears  for sure. I think they  can get a  Swerve  for  sure. &  a  selects smallfoot. Which I bet would have a new head.

    Not gonna lie, the first time I glanced at a picture of Road Ranger I wondered why Hasbro was doing a Capitan Huffy toy…

    The six pack from Ehobby that contains Road Ranger also has Bug Bite, so he is already counted for as a selects exclusive.

    -Bad Boy, a pearlwhite-darkblue redeco of Powerglide (decepticon)
    -Path Finder a Blue-Yellow redeco of Cosmos
    -Small Foot a yellow-red redeco of Swerve.
    -Treds a green Warpath. (decepticon)

    Road Ranger yes, the Puffer figure, I dunno. That is just some random "we got this color plastic leftover, well just toss it in the mold" vibe. From the 80s, when they just didn't give a F about whatever went into the packaging as long as parents bought it for their kids. It has an official transformers logo slapped on it!.

    It's not the 80s anymore and I think they still have the same mentality. As long as it sells. It's a business

    Having all three Ultra Class Powerglides, the Hasbro Universe White Deco (renamed Hothouse), the Takara Red Deco, as well as the 2009 Walmart red deco, as well as Combiner Wars Powerglide, I’m ok with him having a break.

    I’m definitely with you on Gears though.
