    I just acquired this awesome club exclusive from a great board member. I'm mixed on how to display him. I want to put him in my classics display but should he be portrayed as Punch in the Autobot lineup or as Counterpunch in my Con lineup? I love the look of him next to Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, and Red Alert. However, I could use another Con. Maybe next to SDCC Nemesis Prime...

    Counterpunch. Partly because I had extra space on my Decepticon shelves, while my Autobot shelves are full, and partly because his pathetically tiny head doesn't look quite as bad in Counterpunch mode.

    Counterpunch mode. Ironically it's the lesser of two evils...

    Do you own the figure? His head is fucking TINY!

    It looks slightly less microscopic in Counterpunch mode but only because it doesn't have to compete so much with the bulk of the car hood/bonnet chest as it does in Punch mode.

    If he's a spy he's going to spend most of his time within the Decepticon ranks so he can gather information and rarely appear to anyone in the Autobot ranks unless having snuck away to report to his superiors.

    He chills with my Autobot Headmasters :) 

    Though I like the argument of putting him with the 'Cons because that's where he spends most of his on-duty-time.

    All along I thought this was a set of 2 figures. Geez, $150 for a lambo repaint? With a tiny head?
