so has the tiitle say does he ?
thanks for lisning
I think BW Tigatron passes quite well for a young Tigatron, so why not?
To me TFP Kup looks nothing more but Ironhide getting sick at sea.
This. I expected a head remold, but I guess Hasbro got lazy.
because we always... heard... we were getting a new head for him?
They usually do head Remolds. Especially with the TFP line. (AM included)
That Ratchet head remold
No such thing to me as a young Kup. I find the very idea offensive.
I like to think that Kup was a grizzled war vet from the second he was brought online. It makes no sense, but it makes me happy.
Yup. He just looks like a green Ironhide to me. If Hasbro didn't tell me it's Kup I wouldn't think it would be Kup. If he had a different head sculpt it would be more convincing.
Same here, unfortunately.
I like to see it as Generations Kup finally decided to get serious about his health, so he started eating better and working out like a motherfucker.
A good custom idea. We need a new head.
I imagine he didn't smoke cygars when he was younger...
Which is what I think of when I easily pass this deco up. I don't think any amount of squinting can make this guy pass as a young version of anything. Sorry.
He can pass for a green Ironhide.
To answer the OP's question about whether it looks like a young KUP, I don't think so. There's nothing about his face that makes him look young.
Although I'm okay with this being Kup. I'm torn on whether I like Kup's colors or Ironhide's colors more on this mold.
He can pass for a Classics Dipstick
I don't see why the mold makes such a terrible Kup. Head aside, the mold has just as much in common with Kup as Ironhide (Green colour-scheme, pick-up truck alt-mode, window chest).
I just wish his hands had four fingers and a thumb.
All this hatred for this figure yet he is flying off the shelves.
Same with Airachnid. TF fans
I think the Ratchet head was a concept of Swerve, but they changed it to Breakdown.
(But I can't explain them giving it to a Japan-only mold)
EDIT: I have this Kup, and he's AWESOME. Not particularly fond of the Kup idea, and would prefer Ironhide, but he is still really awesome. I don't see what anyone dislikes about him.
