    This guy was done as a gift for a friend. I always felt, with all the stories Kup told, he should really look like he's been through Hell a few times. So, he has massive amounts of battle damage, and worn out paint.

    My biggest change to the figure was a mod on his arms. It started as an accident, but it's greatly improved the figure. The doors are no longer attached to his arms, but rather pop into place in alt mode. In robot form, they attach to the backs of his legs with hidden magnets.

    Enjoy!!

    As a bonus, I recently received a custom G1 Snarl. There was no way in Hell I could not have both Kup, and a Dinobot in my possession at the same time, and not have a little story time!!

    The doors on the back of the legs was a great idea, and it was executed perfectly!

    Thanks, guys.


    Thinking I may have revisit this mold, but do it as a super clean hot rod version.

    I actually really like the paint on this piece. It's got a great lived-in look to it. Nice work Hotwire.

    Awww he looks so old and beat up :(  Poor Kup!
    But seriously, that battle damage looks so perfect. Really great job. Compliments the figure greatly. :)

    I personally like the Hasbro head. It looks like Kup is shouting commands which is what combat NCO's (SGTs) in the military like myself must do on the battlefield. In this custom's portrayal, that is being represented along with honorable actions of doing what you have to do even if you are wounded.

    I also think he looks better without the Cy-gar head.
    As I always picture the Cy-gar Kup head going with a pristine, undamaged Kup body. After all, Kup was given the Cy-gar after he was rebuilt into an 'just off the assembly line' Pretender body.
    To me the current head is the best fit.

    Yep. Like I had said, I always considered up as the R. Lee Ermy of the Autobots. Old, grizzled, and always pissed off at some dumb rookie.
