    This is my second Kup built on the Classics Hotrod body.
    I made this one on commission for Destrongerlupus. You can see my first one in the last pictures (where they're doing a classic "terrorist fist bump".) On that one I got bored with the movie colors and decided to go for a sixties aqua and chrome look, but I stuck closer to the official look on this one and gave him some realistic wear and orange details inspired by the figure.
    The head is still the Hotrod head under there with some re-sculpting. On the tires I experimented with using Plasti-Dip rubberizing spray. It's for adding grip to tool handles. It worked pretty well for giving some grip to the plastic tires.
    Thanks for looking!
    Comments and crits are welcome.

    That is amazing work, that mold works so well for Kup. I wonder if Hasbro would ever get the idea.

    Another homerun, David! Excellent work, my friend. You already know how much I dig your original and this one is even better. I like the better detailing and color choice on this is very nice. Keep up the great work! (and do a tutorial on that Plasti-Dip--I'd be interested in reading more about it or seeing how you apply it).

    This is so amazing! I can't believe that Classics Hot Rod is in there somewhere. I wish I had him in me collection.

    I would have never thought in a million years that I would like this mold as Kup. Thanks for proving me wrong. :)

    Thanks everybody (especially DL)! This is one that I've been wanting to come back to for a while now, and it was a lot of fun to do. I'm glad everybody is getting a kick out of him.
    I might do a Plasti-Dip tut, but seriously, you just spray it on.

    That is great! I've been looking for this since I saw Destrongers' sig! It works so well and I'm really digging the sleeker streamlined old bot! Awesome!
