Kup (Activator) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:22382  
Name:Kup (Activator)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Transformers
Creator:Shinobitron  
Date Added:June 13, 2010
Base Figure:Optimus Prime
Height:4.00 inches
Kup here started as an activators Ptime. I completely reworked his chest into one that suited Kup with styrene and apoxy sculpt. Besides a new paint job the body was pretty much left alone.

The real work on this guy was the head. The head 100% scratch built from apoxy sculpt, and styrene. The head took me over a day to get right and as an added touch I made a removable cy-gar for him.

Thanks for all the kind words guys! Kups my fave Autobot so I always try to give it 120% everytime I do fig of the old guy!
Seph to answer your question it started as a base coat of Scale Green, then topped with Ice Blue, then over brushed with teal Green. I then drybrushed very lightly silver and a silver/ brown blend to give him the worn look.

I was wondering, what color did you use for him?

WOW!! Cool custom!. Great job on the custom head and paint. This is way better that the original Kup!

I'd love one for my collection. You've outdone yourself this time. hopefully mine will look this good at some point. I swear grimlock's demanding to hear one of Kup's war stories (that's a 1986 movie refference for you youngsters on here).
