    Enjoy..

    My opinion, the head is not too small. You have to be holding P/CP in your hands... if anything Sunstreaker/Sideswipes's head's might be too big :wink: 

    I've no complaints on this guy other than the screws appearing on Punch's mode.

    I think TFCC did a bang up job.


    WARNING: Be careful when sliding the car hood/engine bay forward during transformation.. Punch's rub sign can get stuck and crumple up. Lift up just slightly on the roof/windshield and then pull forward.

    Still looks like a pin head in those pictures.....

    Thank you for sharing. Glad you are happy with your P/CP. I, personally, would want my money back.

    Lamborghini's engine is in the back, not the front. That would be the trunk.

    Honestly, I don't think the head is too small, I think Sideswipe just has a huge fucking chest.

    You bought three? no wonder they sold out so damn fast.

    Looking at in hand pics i'm not as mad I didnt get one. That head looks worse every time I see it. Punch's leg transformation looks silly. Add that with the hand switchy thing and it doesn't feel like it's worth 50 bucks. Great color choices though

    Yeah, Yeah, I know.. but I figured I'd get just as many people saying that it was the engine bay not the trunk, so I left it as is ;-)

    He's sold out on the club website, but I'm sure they'll be plenty on Ebay soon.

    I kinda dig the way HighPrime has Punch's feet are being used as heels; it gets rid of the duck feet, and is very reminiscent of the G1 toy.

    I'm still super psyched about this guy. The head, while undeniable small, is made to look even smaller due to the wide chest of the mold, especially for Punch. The camera perspective probably makes the chest look even larger.

    The only thing it looks like I'll need to do is paint those screws black, and depending on how well those rubsigns stay on, apply some new stickers.

    Certain sellers are cleaning up on those. One, in particular, has sold 4 P/CPs, ranging from $150 to $200 (did have free shipping though). Kind of makes me sick. And I don't even want the figure.

    plus at least $10 for shipping.

    And man, I thought paying $70 for it's original price was bad, but $250... good lord
