    I like this for a couple of reasons:

    First, I like it because, well, it's good. Taking into account the overall number of changes you've made to the base mold, the final outcome is surprisingly cohesive. I, for one, would never have even considered the possibility of Prowl's mold as Punch/Counterpunch. At the very least, I would think it nearly impossible. I gotta give you a few MacGyver points for that.

    Secondly, I like it because you chose not to copy everyone and their second cousin by making it out of a Sunstreaker or Sideswipe. The fact that you chose the OTHER first-wave Autobot Deluxe from Classics 2.0 (Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen) amuses me.

    First time I've seen this.. NICE!!

    I was trying to get a flip-around alternate transformation out of Universe Prowl, maybe for a Streetwise, but THIS works really well. I'm impressed at how distinct the two robot modes end up looking, and how much yellow you can hide in that alt mode, and reveal for Punch, or conceal for Counterpunch. Well played.

    Wow! He looks great.

    The thing I wonder with these P/CP customs, What about the hands? Do the hands look right for both bots, or will one bot have upside down or inverted hands?

    That works surprisingly well. I love how the mistransformation makes this a whole new beast. You get bonus points for being original.

    I absolutely love this!

    I think it has been said earlier that so many people use the same mold over and over for this, I love seeing unusual molds used for customs, and whilst this isn't out of the stratosphere unusual, it has made both characters really unique - Thumbs up!
