    Hello all.
    I planned on making this guy Kup, but the head got dipped in alcohol by accident, so all the paint came off. lol.
    If anyone would like to sell me a Kup head, lemme know.
    So I salvaged the situation gave Kup a bro.
    I like this figure better as Kup.
    It's got less kibble than his classics version.

    It took some doing to get the head to work.
    I had to shave off a bit of plastic around the opening where the head slides through during transformation.
    I was originally trying to make the head tilt back like it does with Landmine, but I realize that the head can dislocate during transformation.
    It stays on, but goes back just enough, due to the small gap on the underside, so it can just clear the opening.
    I trimmed down some of the collar as well to allow head movement.
    The hands are from a voyager Optimus Prime.

    Klip:
    Allegiance: Autobot
    Function: Warrior
    "Learn from the past."
    Klip was forged at the same time as Kup, using the same design schematics.
    In fact, Klip stepped of the assembly line only a few moments later.
    So you might say that makes him related, as well as just as old a Kup.
    Their personalities are similar as well.
    They used to work together transporting energon and supplies between factories before the war.
    The war eventually sent Klip and Kup in different directions.

    He's not as stubborn as Kup when it comes to upgrades, but only by a fraction.
    Klip only wants upgrades to his core Operational Systems, as long as they keep him functional.
    He's had the same exostructure since his creation.
    Klip does most of his own repairs, usually in the form of welded metal plates, and is quite proficient.
    He likes to tell any would be mechanics, "Go bang out your own dents and leave mine be!",unless, that is, he's lost something important.
    He like's his scars and each one has a story to tell.
    Like Kup, he has a word or 2 of advice for almost any situation, though the biggest difference between the 2 is that Klip likes to "Make long stories Short".
    He's not as agile as the younger bots, but he's a tough old timer but is as brave and loyal as they come.
    Klip's current location is unknown.
    Some speculate that during the height of the great war, Klip was charger with the protection of something of great significance belonging to AlphaTrion.

    In robot mode, he carries an old-style laser blaster that shoots short bursts of corrosive acid and has been known to carry a grenade belt and a hand blade.
    His alternate mode is an all terrain vehicle, which makes it easy to traverse the many chains, mooring and supply lines of the docks where he used to work.
    Klip's range is limited, but is able to adapt local materials for use as fuel.

    Nah, I'm not a big fan of painting.
    I don't like chipping.
    Besides, his color is Kup.

    I feel that.
