May as well just give my bank details to xtb and fanstoys
Better be in scale with MP-9. Not MP car sized.
Fuck. I resisted Buckethead. I resisted Beardy Bathtub. I hated it, but I even resisted Cyke.
... I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO RESIST THIIIIIS
Also, they should've called it Puk. Would've laughed my aft off.
Which mode though? MP9's Hot Rod mode is a different scale to his RP mode...
Hopefully XTB will be doing Blurr, Arcee and (a new, smaller) Hot Rod, so as long as they all scale together (with MP9 as RP) I'll be happy
Igear's shitpiece head for classics Kup is my favorite 3rd party add on. I really hope this one comes with a similar alternate head.
Wow! That's a spot on head sculpt design. If the rest of the figure follows suit, then this should be fantastic. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing more.
Maybe I am being thick, but I don't get the name... is it because of 'Locke Kup', as in 'lock up'?
I was waiting for the barrage of 'Shitpiece' comments. You guys didn't disappoint.
One thing I am not looking forward to is the inevitable scale debate...
...it's started already!
Agreed, it would be nice to have some of these dudes in hand. Fingers crossed 'Comber is on the way soon, with 'Charger hopefully not too far off. Scourge was looking very close to being ready too.
Oh, and you forgot Inferno!
MP-09 is sized appropriately for Rodimus, not Hot Rod. If Kup is as tall as MP-09 it's gonna be a pass. Wouldn't be surprised to see XTB put out an appropriately sized Hot Rod if they can get away with it.
Me too. The iGear heads were great, and really added his character to the old toy. If they're smart, XTB will include at least one ornery alt head, gritted teeth and possibly the cygar.
So many projects yet no releases yet.
Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves XTB.
So what movie bot will be getting made next?
Springer? Arcee? Blurr?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Also, please rerelease a fixed Wheelie XTB ok?
at least the paint flaking will add to his character, hehe.
nice face sculpt!
Well, seeing how KFC is tackling an MP-style Octane, I hope Springer (a fellow triplechanger) is next.
I believe that season 3 had its own scale, so I hope that Kup will be Perceptor's (FT Tesla's) size wich is approx 21cm (the same size as MP Ironhide and MP Seekers).
A head smaller (about 1 cm/half inch) would also be acceptable, but surely an MP Carbot's size Kup would look ridiculous next to MP Rodimus and MP Magnus.
I agree, FT Perceptor's size would work quite well, if not even a touch smaller.
EDIT: Actually, sod being a touch smaller. I think this works nicely.
Yup, that size works for me.
Well, Kup being a Cybetronian pickup truck, I'd expect him to be a tad bigger than your standard car Bot. Otherwise, Kup will suffer from "tiny drill sergeant" syndrome.
A head smaller than Tesla would be great. Kup/Arcee/Hot Rod are taller than the carbots, though not quite Seeker height.
It's an X-Transbots release of a 539 Designs figure. It will be.
With no others Kup figures in sight, this may be the first XTB figure I buy. I've wanted a Kup for a while.
