Transformers Generations : Sergeant Kup
I got this figure last August at my local Wal-Mart. At the time of it’s purchase, it was the first one I had seen locally. But if you find any of the Generations figures in stores now, Sgt. Kup here is usually in the mix.
Now, while I’m a huge fan of G1 Transformers, I find Kup’s vehicle mode to be a nice upgrade compared to his original look.
While it looks nice, for some reason it seemed small to me(hence the quarters for comparison). Maybe it because it’s a pickup truck, and not a car? I especially like the clear plastic that makes up the tail lights(not shown). Hasbro also did a great job in concealing his blaster when in vehicle mode(when he’s on his wheels that is).
And of course I think he looks awesome in robot mode. If you’re around my age, I’m sure you remember Kup as a grizzled veteran with a fondness for telling old war stories. And I’m happy to report that his face still conveys that G1 feel. Plus, with the upgraded body, he looks even better.
As with all of the other Generations figures I’ve purchased, I find this to be a nice figure. I would like to display all of my Generations figures in the same area, so it looks like some of my other Transformers are going to have to be swapped out, as room is at a premium right now. I’ll try to get a group shot of my Generations figures up in a day of so(after I get them all together).
