Yo I-Gear start making just heads !!!

The cigar makes a cool "LEGALIZE IT" gag for a bachlor pad. But for a display, it just looks as silly as Skids gold tooth.

Have you read "Transformers Spotlight: Kup"? Try reading it incase you haven't and wanted to know why they'd give Kup a cygar.

Yea I love the windscreen too, a nice addition to the reminiscence of Dreamwaves' War Within Cybertron Kup. Which I guess got that from Ironhide having it... from G1 toy Ironhide having it :lol:

No...no.

I actually really like his idea. I think it might be possible to do a whole hoodlum cast of Transformers now between Blut Kup and Gold Tooth Skids.

So inspired...

While Spotlight: Kup is a great read and vital to understanding what was going on with him, the first time he shows up with it is his next appearance in All Hail Megatron 5. Suddenly, Kup is back better than new and more bad ass than ever before. The cy-gar is explained in the ALM 15 as a vital part of Kups return. He had it in Spotlight: Drift (which is set between ALM 15 and 5) and Last Stand of the Wreckers. And then Infestation happened. Up until that point IDW managed to tell a coherent and easy to follow character arc completely out of order in a way that the bigger comic book companies haven't pulled off in forever. I really hope that in the long run, Infestation ends up not being canon due to it being a crossover and nothing really worthwhile coming from it overall.
