G1 Transformer Huffer (mini figure scale / transformable)
I have finally finished the colour scheme of my G1 mini-bot Transformer - Huffer. It is at minifig scale and fully transformable.
About this creation


Huffer - the first little truck I have built with Lego under mini-bot series. I do not know too much about its background, you can vist the following link if you are interested to know more about it. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Huffer_(G1)

This time I have tried to limit its size as smaller as possible under vehicle and robot mode. The original design is just simply a plain truck without the towing unit. However, I included it just wanted to bring more functionality on it.

The details of the vehicle include a pair of rear mirror and fuel tank on the sides, front ventilation for the radiator, a pair of head light and flog light installed at the front bumper, as well as the horns and the emergency signal lights on the roof.



I used 2 different type of mudguard to create different shape, aims to produce a look not like the traditional lego truck, but a real truck model. There is a couple of exhaust pipe in the middle of the truck. A pair of break lights at the back.



The control unit lever is located in the middle to manipulate the crank. The crane can lift up and down and turn around.



It fits 1 minifigure only. I could make it to fit 2 if I made the ceiling higher, however I do not want to make the vehicle any higher.











It works functionally the same as a wheel lift tow truck in reality. It uses a metal arm that slides around two wheels of the vehicle. Then activate a lift system that lifts the arms off the ground after secured the front wheels.



The wheel lock position.



The uninstall towing unit version of huffer.



Get ready to transform!



First of all, to extend the legs of the robot.



Then turns out the exhaust pipe. They would became the robot's arms



Lift up the vehicle cab. See another extend system from using Bar and Clip.



The transformation process is basically quite similar to the original toy.



Stood up position. I use a minifigure helmet for the robot's head. As a minibot, I think this way is still suibable.



Finally, to push the vehicle cab unit back into the robot's body a bit closer.



Transformation completed!





Robot mode with crane and towing unit installed.





See the scale of the Huffer in compare with Sideswipe.



Thank you for watching!

He was one of my favorites as a kid growing up. Nicely done, especially using the helmet as his head, that gives it that little thing it needed to believe it is Huffer.

This is a beautiful little tow truck, wonderfully crafted with great playability and functions. The fact that it transforms is an amazing bonus. There are some nice details, such as the way you've made the wing mirrors and the fold-down thing for towing cars.

Quoting Henchmen4Hire ! Hey Alex, thought you would like to know that I used your winch and wheel-lift design on my 6x6 Wrecker. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/358249 It's also a big orange truck haha
Haha. That's great.

Quoting Legoformer Guy First off, i really like the truck mode. It matches huffer very much, and the functionality you added is just exquisite. But i don't think the robot mode is exactly his best mode. The torso seems a little bit too narrow for my taste. Not that I'm saying it's bad, it's a great legoformer, and it's way above my stuff. But considering what your other legoformers are like...
Thanks you for your comment. The robot mode is not so much look close to the original design may be. The original arms are more like in cylinder shape and the body is more like chunky and robust. But I change the robot shape a bit because of the technical litation that I built it with Lego. I could not exactly imitate the original look but retain the size and articulation in a good way. Therefore, I always need to find the way to build that balance the articulation ability, the shape, the transformation and meanwhile to maintain the original taste. I also agreed with you that the torso is too narrow.

I think it's great that various people are bringing the Mini Autobots to life here. Huffer is great and I enjoyed his pessimistic outlook in the original series. The build in truck and robot mode are great! The added features give it more character. While the tow lift is an amazing tweak I'm sort of iffy on it since he originally wasn't a tow truck but, simply a truck cab who pulled Prime's trailer in one episode. Overall though, to quote Kup from the movie, "You've done an amazing job lad".

Okay, I am so far I now leave a comment. What an amazing build is this, the styling of the rig is also cool if it wasn't transformable. But it is! I like your mini Transformers so much, only for the truck mode I will like it. And then it transforms... Splendid!

To go along from the other comment about copyrights, LEGO is making a Cuusoo a product from Back to the Future. So it is possible :D I'd vote for it!

That clip and stick extending method to lift the cab and extend the legs is pure genius. I've been trying to come up with a similar concept for some time so that I could mimic some of the smaller G1 transformers transformations much more closely. The minifig helmet is also a clever addition, it gives it a little more character.

Quoting John Fink Phenomenal! The addition of the towing rig makes this looks so functional. There is so much detail for a little model. It's great. This is one heckuva collection you have going.
Thank you John! I appreciated your quick and positive comment everytime I put my page on the web.

Quoting Robert Edwards Another amazing creation, I would love to build these, I would pay money for them, have you considered putting them on Lego Cuusoo? I am certain they would get 10'000 supporters!
Thank you Robert! Yes, I am actually planning to put my Optimus Prime on Lego Cuusoo. Hope it will get enough supporter one day to make this happen. I will definitely do this. Although I know copyright is an issue for Lego to produce the product.

Quoting Devid VII Fantastic... as everything that you build,i love your creation,every time i remain with open mouth,you are like a God for me in transformable creation!!!;)
Thanks Devid. There are still lots of area for me to improve and learn from you guys. ie. I should use more special bricks to put on my MOC to create dif/special shape, rather than to use too many traditional/normal bricks. May be this is what the area I should focus more.

Quoting Marcus Paul Fantastic! The rig in itself would be top-notch stuff, and then it's transformable ... Breathtaking! There will be a new featured MOC in the Minifig Cars Group, I guess ... if you add it there, that is. ;-)
Thanks Marcus and all of you. Yes, I have added my MOC to your Minifigure Car group.
