    I haven't bought generations Kup because I wanted one with the correct alt. mode. Was hoping for a Masterpiece (I know that's a laugh - but gotta dream), but I'm keen to see how this pans out....

    Easy pass. Generations Kup with the igear head is good enough for me.

    Bad, Friendship Pony, Bad! Bad!

    Criticism is fine, saying it's bad is fine, but this is just insulting for no reason.

    Oh these poor 3rd party guys...not since Sonicron has one of them shit their pants this badly. They wasted so much time and money developing it, I sincerely feel bad. Maybe they still have time to tweak it into something cool, it's not...like....beyond saving.

    I'm kinda surprised by the negative comments here. It's really not bad...it's not great either. I mean you can see how the arms are very limited at the shoulders and the body looks a bit disjointed and badly proportioned. Ever since the 3rd party lines started popping up and we started seeing, not just upgrades but entire new bots, I've noticed that anyone that can do it is trying and unfortunately they often times miss the mark and while this one is nice...it's missing the mark with that bod mode. The aesthetic just isn't there. It looks odd in a bad way. XD At the same time, it looks like a prototype still in the process of refinement so I'll have to reserve judgement untill I see the final piece.

    I'm not at all surprised at the negativity being spewed in here. Way to be respectful of someone who worked damn hard to engineer and scratchbuild something cool that others may or may not want. I'd love to drop into your place of work and/or hobbies you love and tell some of you just how shitty your work is. I've already mentioned this once before, but it would be nice to see those of you who claim this is "shit" to actually step up to the plate and offer reasons WHY you feel it is AND ways you would propose someone might fix it or improve upon their work.

    Instead, you guys see it and it's like "it's crap! I already have an official Generations Kup and I'm happy and content with it". Sad thing is, if this were released instead of the Gen. Kup, I guarantee the majority would jump on it and display 'em proudly. Just because you are content with your Kup, doesn't mean everyone else is and some may be interested in this. As for myself, I'm also happy with Gen. Kup, BUT I'm not the fickle type that would call something crap and disappear. I have already mentioned that the face looks too elongated and the torso needs to be shortened a bit, but overall it looks great and is the Kup we grew up on (albeit a mix of the G1 toon, G1 toy, and IDW comics styles). Sure it needs a few tweaks, but you guys seem to jump on something before ever seeing finalized pics or further WIP or updates.

    As for commenting, I'm sure this guy appreciates the rude comments. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but some tips on how to improve bad areas and comments on the good would go a hell of a lot further than "POS". Now please, continue with the disrespect and lack of knowledge of how something like this is planned, designed, and scratchbuilt. The guy(s) worked hard on this and the work definitely shows. A little respect and tips would be better than this display of childishness.

    Third party shit is getting out of hand. I've left things in the toilet that looked better than this.

    Thanks for saying that, I cannot believe the level of negativity that goes on around here.

    And along comes another one who feels the need to piss all over someone elses creation.
    You couldn't have said 'no thanks, I don't like the way it looks'?

    Well... it's more poseable than G1 Kup.

    But sorry... just not feeling it.
