    We need some sort of XTB subscription service. :lol 

    Yeah that looks pretty much perfect. I could see Kup being a bit shorter than FT Perceptor, though I also think Perceptor himself could have been a little shorter. :tongue: 

    But yeah, I would want Kup and Springer to be around the same height as Ironhide (maybe a little shorter, he seems too tall in some pics), with Arcee, Hot Rod, and Blurr standing a head-or-so shorter.

    This looks great! Hopefully they won't leave a part out.

    Finally, the designer released a face render. I knew about this many months ago.

    He is truly a Kup.

    Great head sculpt. I'm dying to see how their scour ge is to get a sense of manufacturing improvements. I wonder if they will add some wear and tear details on his body. I always think of kup as overdue for retirement.

    By the way, please include the face he makes underwater when hot rod has to find him and cut him loose.

    If this Kup turns out decent I may well get one as my FT Dinobots need someone to tell them war stories :)

    I think you have to have a competitor to have a "3P war". When the next company announces, THEN we'll declare the official start ;) 

    Daim, that head looks just like the iGear CHUG head, no?

    I understood that reference!...

    What else do you know about? I promise we won't tell...

    *sigh* Just when I thought I could buy a third party item that wouldn't be involved in direct competition with another third party. Dang it...

    Oh well I was going to agree with the cigar accessory being a necessity anyways. Let's wait for XTB's rebuttal.

    I can live without the cigar, personally, as I don't know the reference. IDW?

    Great for those that like it though. XTB are pretty good with accessories, and they're including a sword with Cyclonus, which I believe might also be IDW (?) so you never know.

    Cygar smoking Kup is cool, but not appropriate for Geewun...

    Even though it's not G1, I would still be down for a cigar-smoking alternate head. Actually I'd be down for a lot of alternate heads/faces, since Kup was one of the more emotive bots. There's angry Kup, pissed Kup, too-old-for-this-shit Kup, and story time Kup! :lol 

    For other accessories I would love to get the energon treat container, complete with energon treats! Especially if XTB has any plans for Allicons and Junkions.

    I will forever argue that MP 9 is perfectly sized for Hot Rod. Perfectly. And for Rodimus too.

    Yup. I went there.

    In Hot Rod even works as a car against the other MP cars. Hes just a huge future car. The cockpit space is the same size as is the wheel size. Attached to a huge body.

    So yeah, i want Kup to be big.
