    This is my first post on TWF2005. The mod shown here is done 100% by my 11 year old son. I'm typing while he dictates:

    The head obviously needed to be replaced with something that has two faces, so I removed the head, cut off the back half, and replaced that with the face from Cometer, then glued the head back onto the ball joint.

    The rest was mainly orange paint added to give it a closer to G1 feel. The third transformation mode is just moving the arms and rotating the legs.

    C&C welcome!

    Dude, that's smart. Both robot modes look totally different from one another, and that alt. mode looks boss!
    Also nice to see younger fans liking the old 80s characters us old guys grew up with. Punch/Counterpunch is (are?) awesome!

    I like the red details for some reason! That mold really does work for P/CP. Very nice! :)

    Did you add battle damage to this before selling it? I have a custom like this and was curious who made it.

    Would a head made for Botcon P/CP work on this figure?

    Because the shapeways head might be nice for a classics/movie hybrid.

    You know what? From an 11 year old, that's really and truly impressive work. Very very creative.

    When I was 11,I was pushing people down the stairs. Your son,at age 11, is making customs that look better than some of the customs here. Amazing.

    His faces split apart, and know I can't find Counterpunch's face. :(  I guess I'll make a new one. That aside, I love him! Fun to play with.
