    A friend of mine on another forum made this real nice custom Kup head. Well I liked it so much he allowed me to cast it for my own personal use as well as to sell once i get the castings the way I want it. SO they are not for sell yet but I would be interested to see how many people would want one. He head fits nice and snug on a sides/sunny body but i am sure you fellow bashers out there would be able to use him in other ways. C and C welcome.

    The painted one in the pics is the original head.

    Great to see my original idea take off like this. Nice work on the casting. Who built this based on my original? (Mason?) Pretty nice overall, so pass that along also. I remember you contacting me about casting mine and I believe mason asked if he could do one like it for his Kup bash. I told him to go for it and if I had more time, I would have had mine casted for him (you & others). Good luck with it, guys.

    I'd definately be interested in one of these...I haven't done a Kup custom yet, and this would be a great motivator!

    It looks like a really good cast! ^_^
    Do you know roughly what you'd be charging for it?

    Always exciting to see a modern take on Kup! The helmet part on the front of the head looks great and he seems nice and symmetrical ie. it looks like you could draw a straight line from one ear piece to the other, and the eyes, nose and mouth are well placed and proportioned. I like the general design of the face with the lines that make up his trademark "cheek bones".

    That said, the execution could use some polish. The face and back of the head need sharper lines which would go a long way to making him look less like his face is melting. I hope that comes across as constructive criticism rather than rudeness. I've never molded/casted anything (besides Jell-O :D ) but I imagine sculpting small scale details is pretty difficult. Overall, it's a great start and I'd love to see you improve on this in the future!

    EDIT: I think I misread your original post and thought you and your friend had sculpted the head entirely, but now I see you modified a G1 Kup's head and cast/molded that. I thought by "original head" you meant the original sculpt your friend made. I should read more carefully before posting!

    Kool, I will let everyone know whe I have enogh made for sales.

    I am looking at 20 plus shipping. Give or take.

    Your Kool. the head is actually made using a G1 Kup head, Classics Sideswipe head,, putty, plastic card and patience. As far as the head in the back being a little uneven well i always pictured kup as having a few dings in his old noggin from battle. ;) 

    Kool. Check back for updates.

    LOL!!!! Good price I hope so. I dont plan on charging a small fortune for these.

    Sure will bud. :D 

    Done. :D 

    Added to the list. :D

    Price is a bit high but if you could show one that was smoothed out, cleaned up and nicely painted (meaning solid colors more like a classics look to it with clean paint) I'd give it some thought. Not saying it's not a good effort but for me I like clean lines and a smooth finish. The helmet is good but the face is what I'm talking about

    Do you have any pics you could take of him on Animated Deluxe Prime? If so how does he look? That's the custom I'd need this for.

    Otherwise, it looks awesome!
