    That's what I was thinking as well.... it gives off more a "Skids" vibe than a "Kup" vibe.

    Man, writing them in the same sentence like that underscores that those are two unfortunately-named Transformers. :p 

    Anyhow, the figure looks really good, whomever it is. Nice work on the paintjob!

    EDIT: Out of curiosity, what do you think of that figure? Is the quality all right? It actually looks like it has decent articulation for a Roadbot... about on par with an Energon deluxe, from the looks of it.

    I agree with the Skids resemblance. I like this Roadbot, but really wish there was an easy way to make his legs longer. He's so boxy, but is otherwise a good figure, with less parts-forming than some of the other 1:35 bots.

    Nice paintjob in any case! It suits the mold. :)

    Cool, thanks! Good to know. He's not a bad fit with the Classics. Too bad he has such a giant backback.

    Again, very nice job on the repaint!
