    Hi gang.
    Having another FoC Optimus Prime, I took a look at RTS Kup.
    For my latest project, I wanted the old timer...Still a w.i.p though...
    As KUP is for my stop motions, there is no need for perfection,

    Alternate form:

    Ready to star in my latest project:
    Fall of Cybertron-changes

    Trailers here:
    Trailer 1
    Trailer 2
    Trailer 3

    KUP needs more paint, work and detailing. Cosmic rust and other damages will be added as well as wires etc.

    The damages of front bumper were made with aid of a lighter, sanding paper etc....too much too list...

    Continued proof that the toy works better as virtually any other character then it does as Optimus.

    With the puttied canopy, it kinda looks like a thundertank!!! Throw in a sword of omens and a nice head sculpt and we could potentially have a cyber-thunderian in our hands!! Hmmmmm!! ;-)

    Got Beer Belly?

    Sorry, couldn't resist. I totally agree, the back end of Prime just screams FOC Kup. And if you put him next to WFC Prime, he'll be the right height, and a great addition into a collection.

    I like the idea, but the paint isn't my kup of tea. I guess I've never been a fan of "battle damage." I like the factory look, so I'm not the right person to judge this but I love Kup so I thought I'd voice my opinion.

    hmm, the idea works, but the paint needs quite a bit of work.
    This could be something to come back to when you have improved your paintwork.
