    Hi all, this is my first try to customising or kitbashing...the custom was conceptualised when i saw Universe 1.0 sunstreaker and sideswipe. All re-paints were hand-painted (i should have used an air brush)...Sorry for the shadows in the picture...i will try to improve...please give comments!! whether good or bad...thanks!!! Have yet to include the autobots/decepticon emblem....any suggestions? Thanks alot!!

    Following up on the feedback, i've painted the wheel wells, pasted the autobot/Decepticon emblem and gave an extra pair of red fists for Punch!!

    that's pretty good for a paint job, especially one done by hand. Is (Counterpunch? - Blue guy) head sculpt from a movie prime toy? Overall, it looks pretty good.

    No complaints here, man!! :thumbs2: 
    Punch had red hands, if you could work that in it would definitely kick it up a notch! :wink: 
    And I really like the use of a Prime head for Counterpunch, although CP had a single red visor, but all in all a great job! :thumb :cool:

    The counterpunch head is from a KO movie prime head.

    I am still working on the red hands... and of course the autobot/decepticon emblem....probably do a stencil of the emblems and paint it over on the respective chests of punch/counterpunch...

    Good job man! With the red hands and the faction symbols, he'd be even better.

    The face depends on what you're basing it on. In this case I'd agree with you, as it appears to be a 'toon based mod, but on the toy, Punch has two eyes and a faceplace, Counterpunch has a visor (silver) and a mouth.

    Pretty cool, and believe me, you don't have to use an airbrush to get a good paintjob. There's a few little areas that you've missed (inside wheelwells and at a couple of edge areas), but this looks like a really smooth job.
    I like the sword. What does that come from? It almost looks like it ought to disassemble for storage.
    And it looks like they have normal hands in both modes. Do you actually remove the hands and switch them for transformation?

    Yup, i did realise that the face is the opposite....but it was too late by the time i discovered, cause the works was already carried out halfway...

    thanks for pointing out i missed the wheel wells...but for the edges, thepaint actually came off when i transformed the figure...probably because of the final clear coat as the coat is rather thick...i would be using a rather thin coat for the next rty....

    The sword came from one of the gundam sets and yes, you're right...the sword can be disassembled...there is no need to remove the hands...only the fists, when he goes from one robot mode to another for correct orientation of the fists. i'm trying to get another pair of fists and paint it red color for Punch and the current blue color pair can be used for CP.

    Haha, I just put together a sword like that for a Gundam. When I get tired of it, I'm taking it apart for customs so the sword will probably end up with some deserving bot...

    Very good custom too, very clean.

    thanks to all who commented!! Any suggestions on how to get the autobot /decepticon emblem on the figure? A stencil is possible but very difficult as the emblem will be small especially for Punch...

    Check www.reprolabels.com I'm sure you can find any size 'Bot or 'Con logo you need!

    Touche' my friend! And damn you and your good memory!!:D  At least you gave me an alibi, I agree it is a 'toon based mod!!:wink:

    What Hank said. If you get a set each of the standard 'Bot and 'Con logos (on whichever background you prefer), you'll have loads of symbols in several sizes. Believe me, they'll keep you going for a while!
