    :UPDATE ON PG 2: So this is another of my million kajillion bazillion commissions that had gone mia for a while. For Lotussouljah. He wanted a G1 Kup. This was started long before Has/Tak announced thiers and I was pleased to see it was vastly different than mine. I went for the All Hail Megatron look. Classics Hound, Hot Shot, Generations Kup, G1 Kup, G1 Blurr and Classics Galvie all donated parts. The head is an older scratchbuild that may just be a sand-in.
    Crits welcome!

    Very nice! Can't wait to see it finished. Just curious though, he does have full hip movement, doesn't he?

    Oh WOW I love that Kup head! It's just so perfect, far better than the one the official toy has (and to be honest I like it much better than the I-Gear head, as I dislike the cigar gimmick)
    I also really like the aesthetic of his robot and alt modes - very nice and very sleek!!

    Oh LTS is gonna be happy, the "real" one be damned, this is miles better!

    Hell, this is making me a little jealous even, I LOOOOOVE my Tom_Servo Kup, but this one is SO elegantly matched to the animation model!

    He will! There are Revoltech joints in the hip-joints and the waist WILL swivel.

    Um , this might sound like a stupid question, but...there are going to be wheels, right?

    Anyways, i actually really like this, very different to Gen. Kup and really captures the G1 look very well. :)

    Those proportions are perfect! I think generations Kup look ooook, but the fact this doesn't have clown feet or a weird face makes it so much cooler.

    This is Kup as he should have been! This looks spot-on!
    One question: Where are the back wheels from?

    The back, or his legs are from Classics Hound. I just removed the wheels and hollowed out new "wells" in the center of the leg for the skirted look that Kup is known for.
