    Some commissions for a revisit to Punch/Counterpunch. This guy's quite popular on the request/commission list, and here are 2 I finished earlier this week.

    The head comes from a Sideswipe (half) and a modified Sunstreaker (TFU) face. Hands are from a 1/100 Gundam kit. Still waiting on more water slide decals in order to do the plates, but was in "picture mode" this morning, and wanted them shot.

    The blue is Patriot Blue (Fusion) through an air brush, coated with House of Colors "Platinum" which adds the metal flake. I then clear coated with Testors Gloss through the air brush, 1 coat of that stuff and it looks wet, take forever to dry though.

    There will be loads more pics on my site later this weekend. Still have another custom to post tonight, besides, I hate HTML :)

    Let me know something. After all the times we see punch/counterpunch, how is it that the autobots and decepticons never saw the back of his head and said "hmmm...why is there another head back there with the wrong symbol?"

    Still looking good man. I think I need to collaborate with you on a project one of these days.

    Sweet job. I'd say these are better than the first one you did. But youalways learn to do it better when revisting. I thought you painted lens flares on the red visor but I realized it was an actual light flare. Made me go all warm and fuzzy. :lol

    I love the blue detailing on the legs. Not that the rest isn't sweet. I always wish Hasbro redid that guy for the classics line.

    you know, once you mentioned that, I should have done the detailing on the upper legs/crotch area on Punch's side in yellow, they would have kept the yellow flowing toward lower areas. Maybe next one...
    Anyway, I agree, Hasbro could make this easily, though they'd need a solution to the hands, perhaps fists w/o thumbs...

    every time I see your stuff f_r, I wish I could get the $$ around to get you to do my custom :banghead:  :cry 

    Of course you could always build it any way and sit on it 'till I do ;)

    these guys look great, are you gonna make the laser pointer guns for them too?

    and on the whole hasbro should make this thing I would say thumbs on both sides and agree with moe. but I'd like a head that hides the not in use head.

    this is a great custom (wish I could have one lol)

    Yeah, I have a plan to hide the unnecessary face. I think some sort of visor that flips around the top and around the back covering the other face would work. Although, the limited space in the chest cavity would need to be reworked to allow an even larger object to fit inside there.

    Ebay:
    Perhaps some hands could be kitbashed simular to the design used by BW Transmetal Optimus Primal, in which the alt hands could flip and switch by opening the forarms.
    Oh, great job FR as always.

    I still wish you used orange instead of yellow to be more accurate, but I admit it does still look good this way.

    I did deepend the yellow a few more clicks towards orange, looked at a few references online (my real one died a while ago)

    This is such a clean repaint. Actually, all of your repaints look like this. Great job man.

    Heh, between the both of us there's proof we all make mistakes :)  When Alternators SIDE SWIPE came out, Hasbro had lost the rights to "SIDESWIPE" and I was thinking that name has been lost before hand. I'm thinking now that it was actually with the Alternators line that Hasbro tried to use the name "SIDESWIPE" and couldn't due to no longer having the trademark. This is also why we had "AUTOBOT HOUND" and "AUTOBOT TRACKS", etc. instead of simply "HOUND" and "TRACKS". This is one of the many reasons I've very thankful for our robust resources section, as well as other great resource sections on the 'net. :thumb 

    Also, I wanted to make sure we were clear when we upload another gallery of yours :wink: 

    You've been really working hard and I hope you continue to keep bustin' out nice customs, man :)
