    The Official Transformers Collectors Club has updated with a preview of the new head sculpt for their upcoming club exclusive Punch/Counterpunch, a retool of the Universe Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold.

    Right now it's only a sketch of Punch's side on the head. But if you are a member you can see the whole turnaround. If not, you'll have to wait till next week.

    The head is extremely impessive with the head lid that moves to cover up the other side of the face just like the old one.

    I can't wait. This was one of my favorite G1 toys and I've been very excited ever since I heard about this.

    That looks really good. Glad they took the time to make the mask pivot like the original

    Woo. If the sculpt comes anywhere near pulling off what's shown in the sketch, it'll be a thing of beauty.

    YES love the gimmicks! If I don't already own a custom one, I would totally be all over this! Makes me wonder if Hasbro was tuning into all these Punch/Counterpunch customs and decided to make theirs official................

    I'm guessing he can be transformed like Sideswipe or Sunstreaker (with the different chests)? I may need two or three of this. One for Punch mode, one for Counterpunch mode and one for alt. mode.

    Looks good to me. This mold will serve Punch/Counterpunch very well. Can't wait to see the finished product!

    I'd love to be able to access the member's only section, but apparently if your activation key fails once they can't send it to you again and you'll never get access beyond that page.

    Fantastic! At least I still get the toys each year.

    EDIT: Wow, so on a lark I punched in 123456 after having been locked out of for 8 months and it appears to have worked...

    The head art looks fantastic! I'm pretty excited for this figure because it seems to damn obvious for a P/CP.

    EDIT2: Ok, was STILL locked out after trying to get the member's only store, but THAT page actually has an "email me my reg code" link, so now I am in for good I think. Off-topic rant /end.

    is there a limit on the number of these members of the CC can buy?

    i'm not a member of the TFCC (i honestly can't justify the huge expense for international membership) and untill i've seen the toy i don't want to commit to buying anything, but if - hypothetically - there was a UK based member of the club on here who would throw an extra order in for me what sort of cost would i be looking at?

    edit. or andy from Kapow if he reads this, will you guys be stocking punch/counterpunch?
