I was thinking about how they could revamp Kup for Animated since we have Blurr, Rodimus Prime, Arcee and Ultra Magnus from the Original movie already. I don't think they can show him like his G1 self since Ratchet is this series grumpy old vetern. Then it hit me... what if Kup was Prowl's old Sensei. He could keep his gruff and wise moral stories and work as an ancient Autobot Ninja Master. He could still be alive, or have passed on and left Prowl's training incomplete. He'd have a motto something like, "Don't judge a bot by his fender." Your thoughts?
