    My rule for collecting was to stick to season 1 crew, but I am NOT missing Kup if the toy is good. He was one of my favorite transformers ever when I was younger, and still is.

    This is another teaser like Abaddon (XTB galvs) is. We still have not seen a body or know the height on this KUP. I already pre-o'd UT Buzzing (MP Blurr) bc that is near 9". So if this is 23-24 CM it would be great but 22 CM would be a passable.

    LOVELY! I look forward to seeing more of this, I'd LOVE an MP Kup!
    And despite loving how MP09 looks, I do hope he scales more to the new MP line (so perhaps about as tall as MP Tracks or even as tall as MP Ironhide). MP10 would be too big for my tastes.
    GLEEEEEEE KUUUUUUUUUP! ^^

    Will he be a Targetmaster? Recoil would be awesome to get with KUP.

    Again this is a season 4 TF so he has to be taller no shorter than MP-27 at 8.7 inches is passable. 9 inches would be best at Make Toys Cupola height. The Headmasters & targetmasters are all near Prime's height.

    *shrugs* I would prefer him to be 7 inches, but that's just what I'd want. Once we have more info, we'll see what we'll get^^ And perhaps someone else will put a Kup out in a different size so that we may both get what we want^^

    Wrong thread. That is not CHUG it's MP. You said MP-27 Iron Hide who is 22 CM/8.7 inches which I agree with as lowering the bar. And Kup is taller than him in the toons & near Prime height. I am a G1 toon fan & even toy accurate fans know this bc that was a larger toy.

    I love kup but I wish someone else was doing him instead of xtransbot. Not to be a negative Ned on this thread to those that can't wait for this. I am not over the Apollyon disaster I went through. I gotta bad Apollyon figure and it took forever to get the replacement parts I needed. Only way I can be on board with xtransbot if their anticipated homage to Scourge and Cyclonus are transformers not shelf bots.

    Why is it inevitable that all threads end up like this? :lol 

    Fingers crossed it won't be too long before we see a full body shot of this chap. Dante was teased just shy of a month ago and revealed in full today, even if it is a little blurry.

    Apollyon is my first and only XTB product and I lucked out on my mine, but I'm certainly not so short sighted as to not be aware of the many individuals that have had problems, to say nothing of XTB's previous figures. It's certainly understandable to be concerned about the QC of their future products.

    Must have a Sh*tpiece bumper sticker included or no dice.


    Seriously though, If this is decent, immediate buy.

    Yes & I FOLLOW THE MP sizing designated by TT & Hasbro which I study religiously everything they put out from Voyager to masterpiece along with watching the G1 toon all the time. As well as Make Toys Cupola MP Chromedome who is a hit bc they picked the perfect MP scale from the toon & he is KUP height.
    For those who don't like that. As a lover of larger bots. I had to suck it up when they chose the sizes for their car minibots. Which don't fit IMO.
    Do the same here bc KFC they are going to choose MP sizes like they did with TRANSISTOR/MP Blaster & are doing with MP BLITZWING etc.

    Happy to see XTransbots are focusing on more movie/season 3 characters. I love the whole season 3 cast (yes, even Wheelie...I am the world's only Wheelie fan :D )

    We have Buzzing and now Locke, hopefully we can get 3p Springer and Arcee to complete the whole gang.
