Quickswitch is able to transform rapidly between six different forms, giving him an edge in battle matched only by a handful of other Transformers. This ability also represents his tendency to switch moods unexpectedly! Check out my review of Quickswitch from the "Chaos on Velocitron" set.

Toy News: "Legends" Kup sports new colors in latest promotional photos

Fans were excited for these releases thanks in part to Hot Rod and Kup both coming with Targetmaster partners that were not included with the "Titans Return" releases. However, many fans were not sold on Kup's colors, which made him look mostly grey.
