    Here is my version of Kup, done up classics style. Special thanks go out to all who have done an animated Kup from this mold, but a lot of inspiration was drawn from Frenzy_Rumble's recent one (it motivated me to get mine finished!) I custom made the head from a classics Sideswipe base, and added some width around the waist and torso area, to try to minimize the "animated" proportions. I also added some different fists from Universe Inferno. I really liked the bruiser look that this mold had, and felt it really suited the character of Kup. Alt mode pics will be up soon, just waiting for the clear coat to fully cure. Will also add a few more bot pics with some better front light, as I notice you cant see his eyes! Thanks for checking him out!

    That looks fantastic!! I especially LOVE the use of colour and tones, not boring at all and certainly adds to the level of detail. Just a bit of yellow and red here and there really goes a long way.

    How did you attach the back bits? I'm working on my own and I keep seeing it done and cant figure it out.

    This looks great. I'm still wanting to make one myself. You guys are going to have me doing "Generations" customs yet :lol 

    I really like the head, and the fists are a good call, as others have said. The paint work on this bot rocks as well. I love the Autobot symbol split in half as well :)

    barely looks Animated at all. more length to the chin or head, perhaps?

    overall, nice bash.

    Way cool, man. Kup is one of my favorite characters, and this certainly does him justice and then some.

    Outstanding.....just plain outstanding...

    At first when I saw it I thought it didn't really fit with the Classics line, but he is a Cybertronian vehicle and the way you worked the head, fists and paintjob caused me to fall in love with it! Great idea and good for you for going with it!

    That looks beautiful! Did you experience many paint-rub issues? I've always thought this was a great mold for the character, but it seems like I'd have to sand the heck out of him.

    Yes you do have to sand the heck out of certain areas! Even after seeing the alt mode pics I had to go back and revisit some areas!
    His back shield attaches to the bot via 2 magnets that are embedded in the "flaps" that are on the back of the robot. They line up perfectly with the 2 metal slider bolts that are on the shield itself.
