He's a machine? How does he age? Also why is Alpha Trion old?
years of smoking and other unhealthy habits.
Another perfect example why Cybertronians are living organisms.
But metal also go through process of atrophy, although most likely not as fast as it is for carbon-based organisms, specifically referencing humans and human aging.
Rust never sleeps, man.
They're both mentor type figures. Age = wisdom.
Cars and stuff wear out too.
I'm sure they all age. They usually just look a damn sight better then we do. Jerks.
Maybe it's his mental age. I am 15 and I feel like a old man who donsen't want to be bothered.
Different rates of aging/wear and tear I think.
Plus, Kup is old. He's so old the Big Bang birthed him.
The weird thing is why Blitzwing (who can vaguely remember the Quints while Kup can't) does not look aged. I am guessing it is because Blitzwing was built after Kup was built/rebuilt.
Kup was rebuilt after his run-in with the radioactive crystals, whichever ore those were.
Maybe it is the radioactive crystals
Did Kup get rebuilt in the G1 show or was that in IDW?
It was IDW, maybe other continuities as well.
Sorry digressing from the original topic, but was there any explanation why he seemed to be isolated from other Autobots (like in the flashback Chaos episode) for so long, in any IDW, Wings Universe, etc., publication?
I was reading about Kup on Beta9 on TF Wiki but it looked like he got back to Cybertron after that adventure.
Same reasons we all aren't driving cars made in the 1930's.
Wear, tear, molecular bonds decaying...
Do cars show wrinkles and age lines like on a human face?
After accidents, yes.
Normally I mean. Not after accidents.
Wrinkles, no. Fine line (and deeper) cracks and pits? yes.
Because they are older than dirt. Optimus is 9 million years old and he is not considered old. Imagine how many millions of years Kup and Alpha are kicking around by comparison. Even machines are damaged and getting weather by times passing. Though Kup after been rebuilt by the Quintesson, had no signs of damage on his body and he stopped limping. Plus he was shinny again, suggesting he got revitalised. At least bodywise.
Separate names with a comma.
