As most of you know, for the past several years many of the toys for various the Transformers lines are produced with two head sculpts allowing the Transformers team to offer fans two different characters using one base mold. In 2015, it was decided that the custom class for that years Official Transformers Convention would use the Orion Pax mold with the new head sculpt the former Official Collectors’ Club had commissioned, one that would be used to turn Orion Pax in to both Lio Convoy and Nova Prime. When the sample arrived however, the unassembled class kit included the original head sculpts of Orion Pax and the unreleased head sculpt that could have been used to make a retail version of Transformers Generations KUP! As we have been sorting the pre-production samples for display at RoboCon this year, we figured now would be a great time to show it off!
We here at Pete’s Robot Convention have taken that class kit, and with the customization skills of Shawn Tessman put together a very amazing representation of what Generations Kup could have looked like at retail complete with the unreleased production sample head. Here is the kicker… You will be able to purchase the class kit featuring the Kup head sculpt at Pete’s Robot Convention June 9-10 at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter! This, along with hundreds of other pre-production and final production Club and Convention samples will be available for sale starting at the Saturday Evening Preview Event. Check out the Kup preview as well as some of the other Club and Convention early samples that will be for sale at the show!
Pete’s Robot Convention is a show which places the emphasis on vendors, artists and the amazing robot toys and artwork they will have for sale. Like our show in 2017, we are looking to give fans another year at a great venue where they can come together and celebrate all things robots!
