Transformers Animated Kup

This is my take on Transformers Animated Kup.

Done many times before by many other customizers, this is my attempt at transferring the official design from the Allspark Almanac II onto the Cybertron Optimus Prime's body. Not an original idea to be sure, but I still badly wanted a Kup in my TFA collection.

This guy was the first figure that I've ever done any sculpting on, and I'm very pleased with my efforts. Using Apoxie Sculpt, I built the head up in layers and I think it's pretty close to the official artwork. The head crest could be a bit sharper, but not bad at all for a first attempt.

I'm also proud with how I handled the whole cy-gar accessory with it being removable, and it can be stowed in his back while in vehicle mode.

More details and in-progress photos are up on my blog entry about good ol' Kup. No need to flood this thread with all the nitty-gritty.

Great work and very good match with the character design.
The paint job details are great and the Cy-gar idea very clever.

The head looks like the character design but seems a bit rough. Still amazing being your first job.
