As a child of the 80’s, I loooved the Transformers animated movie. I hated that they killed some of my beloved G1 characters so easily in the beginning, but I did like that they introduced some new characters like Hot Rod, Arcee and of course, Kup! I loved his character and wondered where was he the whole time I was watching the TV show? I also liked that the Dinobots loved listening to his war stories, it was good to see the Dinobots respect somebody aside from Optimus!
So when I saw that Hasbro was going to release a Kup, I knew I had to get him. Heck, I don’t even have a Hot Rod (now I have to get one, the 2-pack with Cyclonus maybe…), and now I have a Kup!
Onto the pics!
I do like his vehicle mode, but a part of me wishes it was more similar to the movie “futuristic Pick-up” look. But I guess it makes more sense for him to be closer to an Earth vehicle. His rifle can clip on top of his vehicle mode.
I like that Kup has an expressive headsculpt, most of my Transformers have a neutral expression.
He’s got some nice articulation all around, the only thing missing for me is a waist swivel.
There you have it! I really don’t have an extensive Transformers collection, pretty much just some popular G1 characters and Kup fits that bill in my book. I think he’s a must have if you’re a fan of the animated movie.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the pics!
