Thanks to Seibertron.com member El Duque for letting us know that third party toymaker iGear Toys has updated their Facebook page with new pictures of the replacement head they're creating for the upcoming Hasbro Generations and Takara Tomy United Kup figure (aka Sergeant Kup). This head, which appears to be a quick swap with the production version, features a more comic-styled look to it including his signature "cygar". Some would also argue that it better captures the gruff nature and battle worn look of the elder Autobot warrior. No word yet on when this accessory will be released or whether it will be an exclusive on the iGear online store or available from our sponsors. When we know more about this product, we'll let you know!

The images below are mirrored from the iGear Facebook page.

Nice! If this isn't too expensive, is colored accurately for the US release, and is available at a sponsor site, I'll definitely get it.

K Konah Kuperson lol. i like it but it makes me think of Logan/Wolverine rather than Kup from the movie and season 3. if im unhappy with kups standard head in hand then maybe ill pull the trigger.

Not so thrilled about it being a "yelly" face, but I can't argue with the quality of the sculpt. A vast Improvement over the Hasbro one. As long as it's not too pricey and can be bought at BBTS, I'm totally sold =P~

Ehh, its interesting but I'm quite happy with the original. I think they could have gone without the cigar/cygar but what the hell do I know. I am curious what they will be asking for this interesting piece and I wonder if the paint apps will be compatible with Generations or E-hobby Kup? And that touch on "Hannibal" is pretty damn funny...'nuff said :CON:

These comic book writers come up with some bizzare stuff. Maybe if it was like a blunt it would have made a cool gag novelty.

There's actually a really good in story reason for him to constantly be chomping on that cygar. The first time I saw him with it I thought it was silly, but after reading the back story it makes sense and makes for a really cool plot device.

While the head looks nice and is sure to be a great collectors item, with these third party companies making tf products, one has to wonder if the probable creator of this version of Kup's head, Nick Roche, is getting paid for this? I really doubt so. If he were, it'd be a wonderful thing that would encourage creators of the tf brand to continue to be more creative rather than making it without going through the proper channels. While the 3rd party products are really exciting and interesting, one has to wonder if there has to be a better way?
