End of the Road Transformers Kup by Jin-Saotome End of the Road Transformers Kup by Jin-Saotome
"When all is said and done, when the years pass by with no change in seasons... and the only sounds echoing in the once thriving cities are that of machines, you know you've reached the End of the Road. With humanity near extinction the fight between Autobot and Decepticon still rages on across the irradiated wastelands of a dying Earth."

The oldest of the Wreckers having seen countless battles Kup continues to fight the Decepticons on the wasteland of earth. Armored and adapted for the toxic desert terrain Kup's ventilation system filters out corrosive gasses and replaces them with the radioactive crystalline gas that allows him to function properly.


Kup was created from a Movie Landmine deluxe with modded Generations Kup head, replaced 5mm hole hands, and new feet. Various spikes and bumpers were added along with screen and armored window plating. A Gatling gun, rifle, and cannon can now attach to his vehicle form and be dual-wielded. Last but not least Kup comes with a huge knife that stores behind his back when not in use.

This is the best looking bot you have done in my opinion. The weathering and battle damage work really well on this mold. Kup was an excellent choice for a post apocalyptic setting too. Cant wait to see what you come up with next.

Oh man...I can't remember.. But there's so much room inside his chest once you remove the black plastic grating you could use any hands you want

Very cool!:wow: Your designs would be great in a transformers comic! End of the road would also make a great title.

This is awesome. Although, his vehicle form reminds me a bit of the Halo Warthog. I'm not sure if anyone else has made mention of any resemblance yet. It may just be me. ^^;

Love the gas mask/respirator/re-breather piece. Good alternative to his old cy-gar. Any other characters you plan on doing in this style?

Love the grimy textures and scratches. Awesome.

This is badass. I like the ventilator system. Kup is so old it fits him perfectly. Doing whatever he can do fight the Decepticons.

WOW. The End of the Road just gets more and more epic! Kup looks like he should already be off-line but is just too stubborn to rust in pieces. Especially loving the worn paint job and the gasmask.

Great job, Jin! I'm really liking your End of the Road customs! BTW, do you have any plans to make customs from toys in the Prime toyline?

Holy BLEEP! This dude is SCARY! And I never thought I'd say that about Kup. NICE WORK!!! I think giving him a new alt was a good call.

Interesting way of using Landmines body for Kup. This is all reminding me of twisted metal. =D

Oh man, Sweetbot would fit in nicely.
