Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Huffer Action FigureI had the original as a kid, so I wasn't too keen on the new design of Huffer at first. I appreciate how the figure repurposed an existing chassis for a new toy, the cost was flat and you get less toy for your money. You also don't get the original toy's bonnet. Of course, whining about how new toys aren't like the old ones helps no one and isn't an appropriate way to really determine quality - so is it a good toy, or not?

The robot mode is clearly just an IDW Optimus with a new head, but the coloring and head really make it work. I've always associated Huffer with his toy's unique head shape, and this toy abandons it - but instead we get a face that matches the cartoon's original 1984 design. So at first you'll sit there going "this isn't right!" but when you really get a good look at the face you'll go "ehhhh it's good." There's a tiny hint of a smile, which is oddly appropriate for a character known for his ability to complain at length. (Not that I can relate.) Since they dropped a Micromaster accessory, Hasbro did pay more attention to paint and slathered the forearms in silver. There are other bits and pieces of the toy decorated in silver as well, plus an Autobot symbol can be found on each forearm.

Unlike Nemesis Prime, this release includes Optimus' big gun. Huffer isn't known for his giant rifle, but hey - you get a giant rifle! It has a 3mm and a 5mm peg. You can use it with your older Cyberverse toys that nobody cares about anymore.

Transformation is a snap, and the truck is the same as the other toys which use this mold. It's nothing you haven't seen. It's very orange, and lacks the contrast of Optimus. On the other hand it's a lot like Nemesis Prime. The truck mode is very similar to the G1 toy as well, but misses an analog for the chrome smokestacks - an identifiable element.

As Hasbro now seems intent on updating all the original Minibots as Legends-scale toys, this is a figure you won't want to miss. It's also one that isn't necessarily quite what you might have wanted, but if you can get beyond that it's fun if a little squeaky in the arm joints. I like it a bunch, I think it's a fun update, but this comes with a warning: if you live in the future with a be-bonnetted Huffer update, you can probably skip this one and never look back. It's like the BotCon 2007 Huffer - it's fine, but this one more or less trumps it in terms of value. It's a clever update using existing parts, even if it's not the thing you would've asked for in the first place.
