    Counterpunch - Nice mode , face is nice and evil looking and the all blue paint scheme sets him off nicely, the head however is a tad small especially when standing him next to other figures. With regard to the body of the figure theres not a lot to say as most of us have either Sunstreaker, Sideswipe etc.

    Punch - top half of punch is very nice, even the head which is indeed small has some nice detail on it, make your way down to his bottom half and this is where the bad stuff (IMO) starts -

    1) The visible screws really take away from the aesthetic
    2) The legs just arent meant to stand this way, the knee articulation sits loosely due to the double joint being exposed with no resistance and the feet have to point outwards for Punch to stand, for reference see the pics just before car mode ( they will not point forward as they cannot fit under the flashing on the bottom of the leg )

    Best way to display him as Punch is keep the Decepticon legs as shown in the pics, overall he is a sweet figure but perhaps a gimmick too far for this particular mold, however thats just my opinion and I'm sure others will love him to bits :)

    so does the head seem too small in person as it does in the pics that we've seen?

    Thanks Red Leader! Darn, the head does look a lot smaller when compared side-by-side to Sideswipe's...

    That was fast! ;) 

    If I could, then I would like his head to be more proportionate but since I couldn't, I'll just accept him for what he is.

    And I just noticed that P/CP actually towers over Rodimus. :eek:

    Is that the same P/CP figure we've seen in earlier photos? The paint scratches on Punch's chest are almost, if not completely, identical to those in the other photos. I suppose if you got this pre-release, you can't confirm if the rubsigns are included, or what the box looks like?

    thanks. Wow, it DOES look noticeable smaller. Looking at the cavity for the head and clearance and all, do you think they could have made the head bigger or they had to make the head that small?

    Feeling glad that I didn't end up dropping the cash for him. Too bad, would have been awesome if they'd pulled it off.

    the head is a tad tiny, but i'm still damn excited for this figure... i wonder what happens between the design process and the actual implimentation... first Nightbeat gets an earcut, and now PCP gets a slightly tiny head...

    though i kinda think its really that the faces are about the right size, its just that sideswipe and sunstreaker have larger parts that hang off their head... so without those large parts this looks much smaller... i think he'll still look awesome in my collection...

    Little tiny head = awful. Still want, but will definitely seek out a replacement head (and hands).
