Kup’s got a stogie.on September 22, 2011 at 5:10 pm
I gave in to my chattering inner demons and got iGear’s replacement Kup head. It’s the one that’s colored to match the eHobby redeco of him that I prefer because of all the bright teal. You actually get two heads, one with the cy-gar and one without, plus a tiny screwdriver. These both are snug inside some foam inside of a plastic box that fits perfectly in Kup’s truck bed. A nice touch, but that feature probably won’t ever be used by me.
It’s not that the original head was offensive to me. Some folks think it looked terrible, but I never minded it too much. It looked like Kup and it matched the body well. But having the cy-gar in his mouth trumps everything. For serious. (It doesn’t hurt that the new head looks like Guido Guidi‘s art, though, that’s for sure.) I just like cy-gars. They’re great props that can add personality to Transformers. I made sure that Commissioner Garboil had one, for example. I mean, can you even BE a head of law enforcement without a stogie? I’m pretty sure you can’t.
