    He needs the front wheel/shoulder assembly from classics sideswipe/sunstreaker. That would help his arms, but I dont know how you would fit the arms in alt mode. My brother had Kup when we were little so I dont really remember his inner structures. but it would help his arms a lot! :) 


    edit: Added a quick digi-bash of what it would look like.

    This is exactly what I've been working on, only without the G1 Kup involved--lol. I'm taking the Sunstreaker mold and heavy modding that sucker with styrene and putty to do Kup.

    As for this custom WIP, I really dig it so far, man! I actually considered using those upper legs on this Kup I'm working on--still undecided, but it's great to see that it can definitely work well. Can't wait to see more, bro!

    Nice upgrade so far!
    This what I want to do! I would like to make a Classics Kup more Universe style and also I would like to make one into Orion Pax.

    Give him head articulation! I'd think that would be decently easy with a Ravage neck joint, a aptly sized pin, and an Alternators head back modified.

    This is looking great! :thumb

    -Kup- Slaggit, Prime, I'm a doctor, not an ick-yak!

    :thumbs2: Good start. As you can see by my avatar I've re-articulated both G1 Prime and Megs and find it it rewarding. Looking forward to your finished Kup.

    How did I miss this?! This is one of the bashes that got me started on my Kup! Wheel_Jack's was the first. But I can tell you're trying your hardest to retain the toy elements! :thumb
