    I just got mine Collector's Club Punch / Counterpunch in today and the paint app on Punch's face has no eye paint. Anyone else has this issue with theirs?

    The eyes are so tiny on Punch, I can't really tell. Mine however, is missing the black racing stripes on the front of the car, on the right side.

    I got mine today too, it feels kind'a cheap for a $100.00 toy. Also got loose limbs and a little chipped paint. Looks nice but kind of a let down -_-'

    The head is too small for me to notice what color anything is. But really, no color problems on mine.

    Could have been such a great figure, someone really needs to come up with a repro head and quick.

    Agreed. I would buy a repro head in a heart beat. As Far as I can tell mine has painted eyes and no paint app issues. Only thing I can really complain about is how tight the head is. It's a Pain in the ass to move it.

    I don't have mine either. I'm getting anxious for that shipping notice to arrive in my email inbox.

    Seconded, the head that Punch-Counterpunch comes with looks like he's a Goompa extra from Super Mario Bros. the Movie... I mean, the visor kind of sits angled on top of his head when you transform him so in my opinion they COULD have made it a little bigger because it wouldn't have interfered with the transformation... other than that the door panels on the forearms are seriously loose, like they can almost spin unobstructed...

    Makes me seriously consider whether I'll be getting future figures... for the price they charge I can always repaint them myself or beg and plead with cash for one of the kitbashers who work with head sculpts to get the head I'd need...

    1) The door panels are a common issue with the mold.

    2) The club said the factory made the head smaller then it was suppose to be. You can believe the club or not. Even if you believe the club it still means there's issues between the club and the factory that they still need to figure out. The club seems to be making steady improvements though so I'd recommend future club purchases as a case-by-case basis rather then a blanket no.

    My Sunstreaker and Breakdown are fine, my Sideswipe and Punch have loose doors and slightly loose joints. Sideswipe is worse than Punch actually. So I guess it's just luck of the draw.

    In terms of QC, mine probably go Punch/Sunstreaker (tied) > Breakdown > Sideswipe. Wonder how Red Alert will be...

    Mine has a problem with transformering the roof does not go straight when in robot mode. Leaving Counter punch with a crooked chest.
