    Let me start by saying, this transformer was always one of my favorites Transformers, and that I actually started working on this guy about 4 weeks ago, and just finally finished his detail this morning.

    I wanted to completely hide the yellow/autobot mode when he's in his alt mode. Which I believe I successfully did.

    To make his head, I actually took 2 other Transformer heads, cut them in half and welded them together with apoxy resin.
    His hands are articulated too! There are arm-mounted lasers for both Autobot and Decepticon forms, which shoot a real powerful laser light. I also used a heat/thermal faction sticker for Punch's chest. Reprolabel con symbol for Counterpunch's chest

    All paints used in the process were 100% enamels, so the finish is very durable, and the colors will stay vibrant and true for many many years. I finished him off with several finishes of Testor's clear coats, all matte, semi-gloss, and gloss variations.

    He is also on ebay if anyone wants to check out the auction.

    does he have two sets of hands.

    btw i also found out that the leg transformation you have used for punch is actually more stable and looks less wonky if the feet are not folded out.

    yes. 2 sets of hands. paying proper tribute to the G1 Punch's RED hands...had to do it. The "Punch" transformation I think is more successful and a better resemblance with red articulated hands.

    thanks guys!

    Most excellent! I love that you smoothed the roof, and the changeable hands are a very nice touch too. Oh and the different color LED weapon is very cool as well :)

    Yeah, the smooth roof makes a big difference. MUCH better. Not sure why Hasbro went with the rippled roof to begin with.

    Love the custom all around. Glad to see someone making use of the alternate leg transformation. That's how I planned to transform my Sideswipe once he's released. Did you do anything further to the feet to get them to hold that position? I find with the legs pointing that way, he has a tendency to fall backwards more easily.

    Also, whose head did you use for the "Punch" side?

    The Punch head is actually the original head from the mold, just modded a bit. The counterpunch head I think is from A. sideswipe. I don't know 1/2 the names of the molds I have lol.

    Awesome Job F_R, my only crit is that I feel the decepticon symbol should have been kept on that piece below the head so that he can remain neutral when in alt mode. Other than that, nice.

    I see what you're sayin Tony, but I was always under the impression he was an Autobot spy and his disguise was the alt mode and Counterpunch.

    I don't know the character that well, just thought that would make him more stealth like. If that's the case though then don't mind me. LOL
