Did you transform him? How was it?
not yet. i want to do a pose with all of them in vehicle. had bad back pain so resting
You or Kup?
so anyone with second release see any differences between the first or second releases?
just curious of FT fixed or changed anything.
"Anyway, all things considered, you did an amazing job, lad. You even got rid of a nasty burr on my rotator"
Seems you got the TFTM special edition
Just got my re-release Kup, yay!!
So, can the head tilt down when looking at either side? Mine keeps coming back up to central position.
Didn't know robots can suffer from rheumatism How's the transformation?
What are the differences (if any) between this re-issue and the original koot?
Did they fix or improve anything at all?
It would take someone who has bothered to purchase both to know, or you can ask FT themselves directly, but i am not aware of any qc issues that needed fixing or that FT would have sent spare parts for, thus i assume nothing has changed.
Some people did a mod to make transformation easier. We are wondering if those mods have been incorporated into this second release.
netclow has the reissue in stock.
Yay! received my KOOT from TFSource. He's an excellent rendition of Kup. Bigger and weightier too. I love it. (I dare not transform it due to all I've read about it)
Which totally defeats the whole purpose of buying/owning a TRANSFORMER. I learned that the hard way with Apache.
My preorder dropped into my POL on BBTS. I feel like I have a gun to my head in purchasing this thing. Not from BBTS, but because Koot is the ONLY game in town if you want an MP-style G1 Kup. XTB's version is a very long ways off (if it is even coming out at all), and no other 3rd party has hinted any interest in doing their own. The same goes for the illustrious Takara. Sure, FT nailed Kups robot mode aesthetically, and he has decent articulation, but there are so many things wrong with it that kind of sours the milk so to speak. Waist swivel ruins the sculpt, literally. As does the window split. The transformation is simply dreadful. Kind of odd since Kup is pretty much a straight-forward design overall with the G1 toy. Instead FT went to town making it over-complicated.
So, yeah. I dread dropping $100 on this guy. But at the same time, if I don't, I run the risk of never having an MP Kup in my personal collection. I just hope I will warm up to him once I have him in hand. Apache failed to do so, but I see with Koot. Even that XTB you have pictured there I find to be a whole lot more enjoyable to transform and mess around with.
hmmm I don't remember posting this but it's definitely my perspective!
I think that the opinions re: his transformation are somewhat blown out of proportion. You have that small bit with the minor flexing, but it isn't as bad as people say. I like his transformation a lot better than Willis's or Sovereign's. You can always do the fix.
Also: has anybody ever broken him during transformation?
I know I'm in the minority in a big way but after adding some custom paint and weathering I actually like Toyworld's Kup better (although I have and display both).
Thankfully my opinion is mine.
I love my Koot. even if it is my own choice not to transform it.
Got mine. Great figure. Transformation wasn't as bad as I was expecting.
Yeah, I bought mine with the intention of not transforming it either, same with Arcee. If one day in future I feel like trying, well then I can try....
