    Hey all. Here's a Kup kitbash Idea that I've had recently. I've decided to make a new thread for this to get opinions/suggestions. I've done a digibash of what I would like his bot-mode to look like (though the black on the hood part of the car would be a darker version of the blue on him). C & C are welcome. This is either going to be a younger/healthier Kup, or an old/retired from war & living in peace Kup. Either way, I plan to get ahold of an Energon Tow-line to do a head-swap. Other than that, it would basically be a straight up repaint (I'd dye him if I could, though I doubt I could concidering the begining color). Thanks for looking.

    Kup-

    Dang, the head works really well. I'll have to use it for my own Kup, if I ever do one. :thumb

    Yeah. It's not my origional idea though, lol. I remember someone doing a digibash quite some time ago of a Kup and he was using this head for it. I've also got another idea for a bash of this mold (another odd/contraversial alt-mode change). I'm thinking that it might also work for a Hound bash. Basically his alt-mode would be that of a high-ranking officer's car. Olive drab green with a nice big white star on the hood. I might do a digibash of this idea tonight or tommorow (though I'm not sure what head would work for it).

    Thanks.

    Thanks. The funny thing is that I didn't really try when doing this one. It was an easy one to do. I might have a Hound digibash up tonight if I can find a good head for him (I've got a couple ideas).

    Do you do commissions?

    If so, I'd really like to see BW Torca done as The Fallen.

    I'm guessing you're talking about digibash commisions? If so, I used to, but, with college now, I don't have much time for this kind of stuff, so that would be a no, sorry.

    Ha! Neat idea!

    It sort of works, because the Downshift mold is an "old" car... though I still feel like Kup needs to remain a truck or something, if for no other reason to justify the "pickup" part of his name. :) 

    Not to meddle, but here are two rather easy Kup digibashes I was tossing around as ideas. That Towline head sure is perfect, isn't it? :) 

    Obviously for this Dirt Boss bash, I hadn't decided what to do about all his wheel kibble... but his main body makes a good Kup, eh?

    Hmmm....I've never thought of using those 2 molds as bases for a Kup. If I do turn him into Kup, he'll probably be a younger kup (before the war and other stuff). I'm actually currently working on a digibash of one of my ideas on my list (this one's going to take a while to get right).

    I was thinking of doing something like just adding some poseability to the old Kup and upsing a new head. Some dremeling could give him some new knees, and I'd have to do something about those shoulders, but your idea for the head solves that problem. And with my recent Ratchet and Ironhide customs, I have some extra Tow-Line heads lying aroung
