    Simple repaint of TFP Kup, and repost since the last was eaten by the switch. Headmaster head needs to be turned sideways in order for it to line up properly with the neck hole. My red paint went bad, so I'm waiting until Monday to get some more. Chrome yellow on the torso and gunmetal on the upper arms and legs. Thanks for looking.

    If you are willing to sacrifice the titan master's legs you can get the front fender piece fit across the shoulders.

    And here's a shot to show just how simple this is for anyone that hasn't given it a shot. IMG_20160911_171337_edit.jpg IMG_20160911_171519_edit.jpg

    What I did was I took a sprue cutter and cut the thigh pieces off which caused the remainder of the thigh to break apart and the pin just fell out. Though I will say that if you do this mod you won't get much head rotation.

    Yeah there isn't a lot of movement, some swivel room. I have no interest in cutting the headmaster apart, part of my thinking was to retain the gimmick. I am toying with the idea of cutting off the shoulder pads, but that really doesn't change the amount of usable space. I did find this little gem from energon ravage, I think?

    I really like how the combination of the mold and your paint apps give it a look somewhat reminiscient of toy G1 Brawn's body. Not sure if it's intentional or not but it's cool.

    Love this idea. I never really liked that Kup figure as I thought the head just didn't seem right on it. But Brawn's head looks good in there. Thanks for the idea, I'm going to try and take it a step further and get the fenders to fit over the head without cutting up the headmaster. Not a whole lot of room in there tho lol...
