    I have to admit I love the Huffer mold. I will definitely be getting Pipes, but I\'m not sure about these two as a 2-pack is usually expensive in my country.

    If Road Ranger was available by himself I may have brought him. That color scheme does look cool to me.

    Puffer on the other hand is an easy pass. Now I do like obscure characters and color schemes from the 1980s returning, but the original Puffer is way down on the list of obscure references I would have liked to have seen done. Even for the Huffer repaints, the red/yellow Huffer would have been preferable. Maybe its because Pipes already fulfils the blue repaint in vehicle mode that I'm not feeling anything towards Puffer.

    Oops, sorry. Don’t mind me, then. *goes back to staring at pictures of Road Ranger and TFCV Snarl*

    Puffer will be renamed Armorhide in my collection and will live on a shelf near Cybertron Prime...

    I too would like Puffer to officially be called Armorhide as the G1 version of the Cybertron character. Puffer still sounds like a fan-name to me.

    [​IMG]

    "A soldier to the core, Armorhide is frustrated by mission that don't go perfectly. He often finds himself aggrivated during the search for the Planet Key on Earth. Still, he finds a kind of joy in the frequent battles with the Decepticon forces that seem to block him and the other Autobots at every turn. Tough, dedicated and fearless, Armorhide neither asks or gives any mercy in the ongoing battle with the evil Decepticons."

    Supposedly so. We have no official confirmation yet though.

    Armorhide is a brilliant new name for Puffer!

    Consider that idea stolen. :lol

    I love this. I want all the versions of the mold, but didn't want them all sitting together. This is perfect

    Is it just me, or do these photos seem... weird? Like, they look kinda warped and photoshopped. Like, don't get me wrong, I know they're real, but I just wanna know what's up

    Yeah, we don't talk about that here. I'm not even allowed to say we don't talk about that here, we just don't talk about it.

    They look great and all, but prices are getting to the point where I don't have nearly the urge to pick up every random repaint of these molds.

    Not to take this thread too off topic, but if you were ever curious, it sounds like your friend had Super-Gobot Staks !
