So I saw the new Kup figure and my first thought was that the color scheme was based upon a background character shot from the Marvel comics Headmasters mini-series. Seriously WTF? Suffice to say he wasn't on my must have list, but when I saw his wave got put on shelves at my local Meijer (still kicking myself for passing on Preceptor at the time, I've got a brand new Mainframe face painted and ready to install) I saw the mold itself held potential. Then I saw the takara version and almost chucked him on the highway (I kid, no way will I do that). My Kup was saved by the fact that a couple dedicated designers produced some much needed upgrades, at current I'm waiting on the arms and new face to arrive, but while I waited I gave the rest of Kup a full paintjob( I was going to have to anyway just to make everything match), giving him that light grey and teal body that I vividly recall from my horribly degraded VHS copy of the 86 movie. I tried to combine a little of his G1 cartoon, G1 toy, and idw comic appearance as reference, plus whatever I could take from his new Takara toy. I'll add links to the new face and arms so everyone can enjoy.
