    so with all the fuss over the TCC edition which i sadly missed out on and due to the fact his head was very small i decided to make my own!

    the head and hands are not my design and were from shapeways. the hands themselves have a revers-able thumb so in either mode they are correct for the bot. neat touch i think!

    i went with a smooth finish on the paint and a bit of dry brushing. let me know what you guys think!

    he's having a few very small touch ups i noticed after pics were done and then put up for sale. if you want him pm me otherwise its ebay bound as i have made two of these :)  thanks for looking!

    well i made two because i picked up two cheap sunstreakers and selling one pays for me to make other customs, as i do it for a hobby not profit. so one for myself and the other to sell for paint and new figures to bash etc.

    and cheers mike! i realise its not perfect but its a better size than the original! :D

    Isn't it Counterpunch who's supposed to have the face plate?

    well i sanded where the sprues off the head were but gave the whole thing a light sand. its 3d printing which does give a bit of a rough effect.

    punch does have a faceplate due to its design but counter punch in my reference picture was exactly as that face should look!

    Looking very tidy here mate, the head is a deal sealer. I'm very impressed that this was hand brushed, very smooth work.
