Going through the preproduction samples that will be on display at RoboCon in June, we found more of the sample unassembled kits for the BotCon 2015 custom Class GalvaConvoy. These kits were rejected because they did not include the LiConvoy/Nova Prime head sculpt but rather had four heads for the retail versions of the toy - two Orion Pax and two Kup!


We decided to have Shawnn Tessmann paint up one of the kits and try to mimic the best Kup deco that he could get with the mold layout. It ended up looking pretty nice!

Wait a second... Kup is T30 Orion Pax's built-in alternate head? Color me surprised, yet not. Titans Return Kup has the same thing in reverse :lol:

Looks like Kup and Orion Pax are meant to always have their figures intertwined. First we had Reissue Kup redone as Orion Pax, then this revelation that this Pax had a Kup alternate head, then the TR Kup into Pax. I'm looking forward to PotP Leader Evolution Kupimus Prime. :lol:
