    Mirage head huh? Clever indeed. Mighty fine red paint job there too. I have a feeling you beat Hasbro to this inevitable repaint.

    WOW this looks amazing!! ^^
    Question, was the modification to the fenders having them stay attached to the bonnet? I don't have a Kup toy yet so I'm not sure what you did
    I have to say again that it looks so cool though^^

    Alteron_Sheng, yea it appears that he modded the fenders where they would stay on the bonnet for transformation.

    Xav, great job on this bud, I really love it.

    Very nice! I've heard a few talk about how this mold might work great for Orion Pax, but this is the first time I've seen anyone actually do it. It came out great! The colors (and paint apps) look great, and the mods and head really sell this as a completely different character. Keep up the great work, bud!

    It's pretty remarkable how different that mold looks with a new head and a totally different deco. Great job on this :thumb

    I think the head is too small for the body, but everything else is carried out really well. Love the clean paint job.

    Great paint job and great work making him look less like Kup with more than just a head swap and paint job. The head works well for Orion Pax too, but I have to agree that it is a bit small. Still, nice clean work and cool figure!

    Botcon should just steal your idea and make a Prequel story about Cybertron.
