    I would think so, since he hasn't blown his cover yet. However Animated Shockwave was good as well, if he wasn't stupid enough to reveal himself just to rub it in.

    Doubledealer was more of a "double-cross" figure - he's on your side and then BAM he turns on you, and you're left going "D'aww, Doubledealer is mean!".

    With Punch/Counterpunch, you're hanging with one, turn around, and you have the other, who shoots you ... and you're left going, "D.awww, Punch/Counterpunch's twin brother, Punch/Counterpunch, got me!" ... only to have the opposite figure come back and be like "zomg, are you okay?"

    So I'd say Punch/Counterpunch ... he's a backstabber with an alias, while Doubledealer is just a dick.

    Yeah, I sort of agree with this. I always saw Doubledealer as more of a mercenary type, while Punch is the real deep cover type.

    Of course, the whole idea is a bit ridiculous. Wouldn't it just make more sense not to have an alternate body at all... rather than risk the Decepticons making the link between Counterpunch, and that guy with the same alt-mode, same colours and similar name?

    Unless "Punch" is only on record as being some kind of Autobot data clerk/desk-jockey who is hardly ever seen, and never makes appearances on the front line, and he spends most of his time in Counterpunch mode.

    I have the same opinion, I think that was Doubledealer's thing in his old commercial, but I don't remember it too well. I'm guessing Punch wouldn't be out much too, less exposure that way. Would be interesting if they could put out a TF Spotlight comic for him :)

    Based on Punch/Counterpunch's performance in his sole cartoon appearance...I think Grimlock's a better undercover.

    Sideways or Animated Shockwave/Longarm Prime.

    I haven't watch much of the Takara G1.

    Both are pretty stupid ideas and I hated them both. I'm with Autovolt: Sideways or TFA Shockwave/Longarm Prime is far far superior to both.

    And that's any and all versions of P/CP and DD. They're just comedically dumb concepts.

    double dealer is better.

    P/CP is nuerotic and has black outs...who the fuck wants that on your team? seriously?

    Double dealer has everyone clueless about the other persona going on ....Smooth doubl agent...yes dick but smooth as a counter intelligence operative
