    I know there are a couple options per character, but what is the one that made the grade for your "MP" collection? Pics with your guys on display with others are appreciated.

    I have no specifically MP collection, as I mix figures to try to keep the alt mode scale making more sense.

    Here are my 1986 Mini-Bots:

    Bumblebee is the Hasbro Generations Legends.
    Brawn is iGear Hench, because he's about Deluxe size.
    Bumper is the Impossible Toys Bump.
    Cliffjumper is Hasbro Generations Legends.
    Gears is iGear Cogz.
    Huffer is X-Transbots Krank, because he's about Voyager size.

    Cubex / Badcube Huffer & Brawny, easily. Both nail it, though Huffer's paint issues are legendary.

    I've got Brawny and am hopefully that Badcube will re-release Huff.

    Currently its Huff and Brawny. Id like a redone Huff as the design is near perfect, but Im very hopeful Takara does Brawn eventually. Brawny is good, but his small face and slanted eyes suck. (I really hope that doesnt make me a racist!) The lower legs could be better and I hate how the backpack just hangs there without securing. Brawny is good, but definitely not perfect.

    Is this a trick question or something? Badcubes offerings have it sewn up

    I don't own any yet. Huffer and Brawn are not characters that are high on my priority list, but when I do get to it I will probably go with the Badcube ones.

    Slanted eyes and Small Face? Sorry just don't see it.

    Brawny is one of the absolute Faves of my entire collection.

    I don't have an MP Brawn yet. The Badcube version doesn't make the grade aesthetically in my opinion. Doesn't look like a bad figure, just doesn't capture "Brawn" to me. I have Hench, but he's not MP-quality... I use him with Classics.

    For Huffer, I DO think Badcube/Cubex nailed it with Huff. He's who I have there currently. I got lucky with mine, and was able to slap a clear coat on his painted parts before any flaking occurred. His hips are still loosely-goosey, though. If Badcube does get around to revisiting Huff and beefing up the quality, I'll happily replace the one I have.

    I'm tempted by Brawny, but I'm not about to buy that 2 pack. I like Badcubes stufff, but I'm also not sure I'm feeling the vehicle alt mode they gave Brawny, and his legs seem a little weird to me ... So I'm hesitant, maybe a better one can be done?

    I think X-transbots might do Brawn eventually, but it most likely will be more of the same where you have to buy Outback at the same time. No thanks!

    Had the first Hench and sold it. Rockin Brawny now. Had the iGear Huff, sold it. Had the XT Krank, sold it. Waiting on a new Huffer for my MPs. For Pipes I stuck with the XT Version. Superior to the Krank and an awesome Pipes.

    Outback needs some love. His BadCube design is excellent, though the poor color choice on the iGear Outback was disappointing.

    Why are we even discussing it?

    Huff and Brawny are definitive. :locked2:
