    You know I like that explanation for Kup having the gun hand... now the question is do we get a hand to put there as well ;)

    Nice art.

    Although upon reading that, and remembering the gunarm, I found myself wanting that mold redone as Shockwave.

    That's some sweet arkwork and bio right there. I'm starting to really want that Kup figure. Probably never get him though. I mean a cast of his head thrown on that movie Cybertron repaint, Crankcase with a few bot stickers and a little paint would be fine by me.

    Is there any chance FP would eventually sell their exclusive heads and their site? I don't see why you couldn't do that for customizers. I don't think it would de-value the botcon figures at all

    Rather ingenious explanation for Kup's hand that also takes the '86 movie into account.

    Also, naming the ship Eight Track FTW.

    I'm not a fan of Milne's art outside the movie comics (in which it works surprisingly well on those designs) and I'm not a big fan of this peice. Mostly the dull face and weird right arm. It looks like the joints in either his hand, or elbow, or both are broken, I doubt that was in reference to the bio. (which I might add is pretty good)

    I like it but why is FunPub using Fireblast instead of Firepower? I liked Firepower better.

    I like it, and the bio is pretty good as well. Don't really care for the molds, but the art is very nice.

    Agreed. The art is better than the actual head sculpt, and the obvious toy kibble is minimized. I hope Scourge's art uses the back wings in a more cape-like configuration than the preview photos do. It's a shame if the Noisemaze mold's flexibility is ignored.

    Out of the whole set Kup is my favorite. But i don't think he is worth $360. I think the others look like crap.

    I like the explanation they give as to why he has the tool hands.

    Of the Noisemaze mold? I can take some tonight. I use the wings on the toy's back, pointed up, for Ratbat. I'm planning to flip those upside down for Scourge. I think those look stupid on the toy's legs, and Scourge isn't a swordsman.
