    True, face sculpt is not hot at all, hopefully it comes with different ones that are better?

    And please do not be $200?

    The face sculpt seems fine to me? I'm not sure what people don't like about it.

    The earlier proto had him with a cigar, so I'm expecting there will be at least those 2 versions of a face.

    I'm not seeing the problem people are having with the face. Especially with the low resolution.

    It's just not as good as the FT one. Not really that big of a deal breaker TBH.

    Kup's a shitpiece anyway.

    Still waiting for a 3P to have the confidence to name their Kup as Shit Piece

    I might get one... But I don't know... Yet...

    I have preordered Sovereign M, because I am tired to wait for Abaddon, which could be better than Sovereign... Oh well...

    At least you will get hearts desire for ratchets everywhere, and strong ones to boot.

    As a side remark if they ever release Abaddon in the next five years and they manage to pull if worse than a (by then) almost decade old
    design....shame on them I guess....

    The recent toon versions of Hoist / Trailbreaker were around $130, typical car-sized bots are around $80. Kup is more car-sized, so I'd place him nearer $80, with $120 as the most it'd be.

    i think the biggest issue with the face sculpt is, it ISN'T FROM MY COMPLETED MENASOR!


    all joking aside, his face looks too young. either they need to add lines to the face or thinner paint. could be a case of savant face all over again.

    Damn, this is a tough one. Chest is too short on Locke, but that split chest is super annoying on Koot. Locke's face is worse, but his feet are way better...aaagh! I have to decide on one at some point...

    I'm thinking this guy goes with Buzzing, MP09 and the Maketoys Headmasters. Gotta say, face looks fine to me.

    Getting there!

    FUCK YEAH! That's BOUGHT. That looks WAY better than Koot in robot mode, vehicle mode is a wash, and the transformation can't possibly be any worse.
