    Was wondering if anyone could post a pic of Counterpunch, preferably in both modes alongside G1 Prowl or Jazz.

    Was wondering how they compare size wise.

    Thanks.

    They look like figures from entirely different shape-changing robot toylines, don't they? Mental, eh?

    The unoffical mode is really an intended transformation that the prototype could do. Originally Punch's feet had small brass wheels on them and he could roll. You can actually see wheels on the top of Counterpunches feet in the box art on. Don't know why they dropped it.

    Thus is the wacky, piecemeal nature of G1. :)  And arguably, one of its strengths. If it hadn't been cobbled together from various disparate toy lines, it wouldn't have unique things like cassette-player bots mixed with car-bots mixed with battle-station-bots.

    Oh, I get that, and love it myself. It's just you look at Prowl and Jazz there and they're just so different from Counterpunch. At least the early G1 toys all had the same levels of detail and reality to them to some degree.
