    Hi all,

    2nd attempt in customizing own fig.

    This is by no mean my idea. Thx to everyone that mentioned and made this custom before.

    As a newbie, i have problem with the head. In fact, i still don't have a head for this fig. Looking for the right head. heh

    still WIP...really hope this can turn out ok to go with the prime i painted before.

    oh, and i'm going to order some reprolables, but since i'm non-US, may have to wait longer.

    Only taken pic in alt mode, since it has no head, lol

    Thx for all the comments.

    Mixed a bit of citadel colors. Can't remember the exact combination, but almost 98%+ was ultramarin blue. Some silver, red.

    Frenzy, i opened up the headlight, and painted it with silver, wanted to make it stand out more.

    I wonder if you couldn't find a junker Punch/Counterpunch on eBay or from a user here and just use the original toy's head. I don't know if it would fit into the compartment on Sunstreaker, though...

    Anyone out there actually tried this?

    Still couldn't find a head, so i decided to try using the back of sunstreaker's head.

    Heh, not as good as a "normal" head, but at least i hope it's a head.

    Still need to put some details and symbols.
