    Which one is the best kup for you? I hope to hear from alot of you.

    It was ehobby because of the colors but I think united is the way to go for me.

    Generations. My reasons being that IMO United is too shiny for a start. Kup should never be shiny. Tracks yes, Kup no. And the e-Hobby version is nice, but he's way too blue and the 'battle damage' just looks a bit shit to my eyes. I like the white on the chest but the rest of the colour scheme is too far off green for my tastes.
    Therefore, Generations Kup wins.

    They are all nearly perfect. However, E-Hobby Kup is the best. I just love his cartoon like colours.

    I think the colors on the E-Hobby are the best, but I hate battle damage on TFs unless its a custom. So Generations for me.

    Generations. The other two have shiny paint which, IMO, is totally inappropriate for Kup.

    All things considered, I'd say Generations, but only by a slim margin. Candy paint aside, the extra paint apps on the United version really look good, and by comparison Generations Kup looks pretty flat. The Ehobby version is probably the most interesting to look at, but the colors might put you off -- it also looks a lot nicer without battle damage.


    Ehobby Kup has no shiny paint.

    Yep. It took me about 10 minutes with some 91% isopropyl alcohol yesterday.

    I love the eHobby colors, but Generations has the more show-accurate color scheme. If only it had more show-accurate painting.

    The shiny paint is cool looking but I don't think a fresh paint job fits the character of a stubborn old codger like kup. Generations is fine by me.

    Here's what it looks like without battle damage. The photo is grainy because I forced the colors to look like they do in person. In almost every photo I've seen on him so far, he looks way bluer when he's more of a greenish-blue.

    Is there any evidence of the BD ever existing after you did that? In person I mean.

    The alcohol got all the silver battle damage paint off and left nothing behind. I can't even remember where the battle damage was now.
