Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to tip offs from fellow Seibertron users, Praxiusprime77, MadProject and Sol Magnus, we've learned that YouTube toy reviewer, TonTon Reviews has struck again! This time, he's got his mitts on Transformers Studio Series 86 Deluxe Class Kup!

This deluxe class is the closest Kup yet to the animation model, yet also shares some design elements from the War for Cybertron Trilogy. This would mean he's designed to stand alongside the movie characters already released through that range, such as Siege Springer and Earthrise Arcee.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:


What do you think of Kup? Will you be getting him? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

So I'm probably going to get a million fans yelling at me but...Hotrod and Kup are basically the same size (in fiction, and most previous toys as well), why is Hotrod a Voyager?

Kup is looking pretty good! Looks like those arm assemblies are a little tough to peg in securely to the sides of the torso in robot mode. I hope that's just an issue with these leaked "samples" and the actual production run will correct the issue. The paint apps look great, but Kup's missing some coloring on his abs, whether that be silver paint or light green. It depends on which character model you're looking at, like Kup's lower leg color. Speaking of the lower legs, with all that room inside, I would have liked to have seen the wheels better hidden instead of poking out of the shins. Though it's not accurate to the character model, that is where they go on the original toy, so it's not too much of a bother for me. I love that he comes with an energon goodie box, but the biggest surprise is that Kup is modular! That's a great touch that Hasbro and Takara certainly didn't have to include, but they did anyway, and it is awesome!

Is it just me, or are the colors off on him? It doesn't really look as movie accurate as the Hot Rob fig ended up being.

Also, does his lower arm and lower leg come off (intentionally, not accidentally) like on Quintessa? I can't be the only person wondering that...

More or less, its also a question of Deluxe class slots available, then of course they may look the same height but there could be a lot more parts going into Hot Rod then Kup which will also play into price. It could have been that Hotrods design took him to a place that was between the limits of Deluxe and the threshold of Voyager, so a few extra parts were made to push him over via plastic amount.

Oh dear. At this rate, I'm all in on both Kingdom and Studio Series 86'.
My wallet shall not be spared.
On a side note, These designs do look fantastic!
I was previously concerned about Kup's white kibble that connects the arms to the chest, Nope,
Double checked, It was on the animation model after all.
That's good enough for me.
Can't wait.

He's a far cry from the accuracy they achieved with Hot Rod imo.

Doesn't really help that the original Kup has a generic look for better or worse outside of his head sculpt. (More modern versions of him improve this) it's just gonna make any strict attempts to recreate his look be a tad boring.

I'll probably get him since I'm a sucker for the movie guys. But that robot mode seems off. The way the arms attach seems off and that face ...

This is the first selects reveal I'm not feeling.

Looked to me like he just did it wrong.

The article has been updated, and I apologise whole heartedly about that.

I never really noticed the roundness between his chest and arms.
Anyways, here are some comparisons to the previous version.

Because height in relation to price point hasn't matterred for 2 years now.

I preffer the new Kup alt mode. The previous one was ultra lazy with the arms.

I prefer the new Kup, period.

The only thing that could make him better is the Targetmaster.

Firstly, because Hotrod has a large combination of unique features that cause a higher price count, like the articulated hands and the alternate visor. and secondly, for the same reason that the leader class price point has packed Voyager figures for so long now: Accessories. Hot rod is simply a more complex deluxe size figure with a lot more accessories and weapons, similar to any leader class priced Voyager with extra weapons or a trailer. Nothing new here, just a feature being brought to the Voyager price point for the first time.

I will say this Kup is a very good representation of his cartoon shelf, and I'd expect to see similar ideas come into play for when they do the MP version. But I doubt I'll be picking him up because I'm not enough of a fan of his original design to pick up this version when I already have TR Kup
