    Let me start by saying, this transformer was always one of my favorites Transformers, and that I actually started working on this guy about 4 weeks ago, and just finally finished his detail this morning.

    I wanted to completely hide the yellow/autobot mode when he's in his alt mode. Which I believe I successfully did.

    To make his head, I actually took 2 other Transformer heads, cut them in half and welded them together with apoxy resin.
    His hands are articulated too! There are arm-mounted lasers for both Autobot and Decepticon forms, which shoot a real powerful laser light. I also used a heat/thermal faction sticker for Punch's chest. Reprolabel con symbol for Counterpunch's chest

    All paints used in the process were 100% enamels, so the finish is very durable, and the colors will stay vibrant and true for many many years. I finished him off with several finishes of Testor's clear coats, all matte, semi-gloss, and gloss variations.

    He is also on ebay if anyone wants to check out the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140255133143

    That's pure win, I can't get to the e-bay page for some reason though. How much would a commission be for one of those?

    Great effort! It's just too bad that P/CP is a better concept in theory than in practice... at least as a toy.

    I think the only way they could semi-successfully use this mold for P/CP would be to have a head that has a retractable faceplate or some sort of flip-up/down panel gimmick per side so that the other face doesn't show when it's supposed to be hidden. I think that's why Animated Longarm/Shockwave is such a great double-agent concept - 2 unique faces in 1 with nothing exposed, and 2 relatively distinct alt modes... whereas P/CP always remains as the same blue car.

    Either way, this is a very good job. I'd love to see a version done in deeper navy blue ala Soundwave's color.

    yep. each set pops into the wrists. Had to pay homage to the G1, where one set was red, and one was blue.

    So does he have a face on the back of his head in either mode, or is it hidden somehow?

    I'm left wondering the same thing. If hidden, I may be bidding. Either way, amazing work.

    The 2nd head is actually exposed on the back, however - if the final price on the auction goes high enough, and the person who wins prefers it's hidden, I will bash up a small plastic cover that flips to the back hiding the other face. Easy to do, wasn't an idea I had until I see these concerns about it.
