What was the final consensus? Is he an homage to Kup, or not? I've not quite decided, myself.
WW Sh*tp*ece as far as I'm concerned.
I still wish we could get a larger (deluxe) Kup update/homage, so that he can hang out with Classics Rodimus and say stuff like "I knew you had potential, lad!"
Speaking of which, I wouldn't be surprised if Kup is on Hasbro's Classics "short list".
I guess that's about as cut-and-dried as it gets. Sweet.
So why didn't they call him Kup?
Frankly I dont see a resemblance nor would have made this connection. *shrug*
Same here. The only thing Brakedown has in common with Kup is the fact that their both old-timers.
Oh, and have whiny sidekicks
Have fun, all!!!
Or monologue for 15 minutes and bore the Cons to death so Megatron can yell "RETREAAAAAAT!"
Well besides the color scheme, the idential shin detalings and the characterization, I don't see much in common either
I understand what you're sayin'. But hell, Optimus Prime and Superman have the same basic colors; it doesn't mean they look alike.
My logic is mighty
Well, until you come up with a counter-point, that is
If you look at the WW Kup designs in the WW comics he does have a strong resemblance. It's not perfect, but it's there.
They should have re-colored him red and blue and called him Gears IMO.
He would've went well with the following Basics:
Clocker re-painted as G1 Windcharger
Overhaul re-painted as G1 Brawn
Armorhide re-painted as G1 Huffer
Hard Top re-painted as G1 Beachcomber
Scattershot re-painted as G1 Warpath
Shortround re-painted as G1 Seaspray
Ransack re-painted as G1 Wheelie
Who knows... maybe if the Classics line does well; Hasbro will get lazy and just re-package those figures with different colour schemes as homage to G1 minibots.
Who in his/her frelling right mind would seriously want to make a HOMAGE to Wheelie?
That's actually not a bad idea. Except maybe for Wheelie
Although he would look just fine beside Classics Hot Rod and Cybertron Blurr...
And an Energon Bulkhead and Arcee...
I think that minibot homages would be cool.
How about a spychanger or mini con for for wheelie.
Then primus could slip on him and break his allspark!
