    Well heres my second use for the MARs converter this time its Kup as a vintage roadster.

    Always wanted to see an earth mode Kup and since they dont have any vintage FORD pickups this one makes for a nice alt mode for the classic old timer.

    The body was given a completely new paint job with a vintage baby blue coat. I uses flat white for the top and various other shades of grey for the bot mode. The head is a modified Skyfalls that was given Kups head crest a cygar and a detailed paint job.

    Ha! Kup was actually one of the first ideas that popped into my head when I saw that MARS converter. Good to know we think alike.

    I eventually bought the Viper mold, but I'm still racking my brain trying to come up with a suitable character choice.

    I think you should use a closeup of that head as your avatar Shinobitron. Because I almost wish that was the head we were getting with Generations Kup. I love old school meeting older school.

    That looks pretty sweet. I like that color. So how's the quality on these MARS bots? Are the joints tight etc.?

    I avoided buying that one but every time I looked at it I kept thinking Tracks. I just couldn't get around the convertible top though.
