For years, I've had five of the six first year mini Autobots. Now, thanks to Ebay, I have all six. Huffer has completed my set.
Vehicle: Huffer is a tiny, bright orange tractor trailer truck. He has big black tires and windows, and oversized chrome smokestacks. The truck grille is silver, and a tiny Autobot sticker sits right in the middle of two black lights on the roof of the cab. There is a stylized M on both doors, as well as a tiny ladder behind the doors. A neat, compact little auto mode.
Transformation: nice and simple. Bring the cab forward, pull the rear of the truck back to for the legs, pull the smokestacks out to the side and rotate them around to form the arms. All done.
Huffer has a lot of dark blue showing now. His face consists of a dark blue mouthplate and silver visor. He has an Autobot sticker dead center on his chest, and another sticker lower down for detail. Articulation is limited to the arms which rotate 360 degrees. I've always thought they looked a bit like he had elbows that bent backwards.
Bottom line: he's small, cute and simple. He's also great fun, and it's nice to finally have him in my collection.
