    Punch/Counter punch has always been my favorit. So when I saw people using the sunstreaker mold to make him. I jumped on board. Then TFCC release one and he was bought on sight. Then I saw some amazing custom using Drift.
    What made me really happy with this mold use is with some modification you can really can get an accurate Counterpunch shoulder. The chest and leg were spot on.
    I can even store seperate weapons for Punch and Counterpunch

    For anyone curious to have the shoulder rotate like that you need to relocate the shoulder joint under the hood. I also replaced it with a ball joint.

    Anyway I hope you guys enjoy.

    UPDATE: How I accomplished the shoulder modification on Page 2 and page 3

    I think the Drift mold works perfect for this. Well done.

    Nice! I always thought this mold was a better choice for Punch/Counterpunch than the Lambor twins. :thumb !

    Awesome! This vehicle mode works so much better for PCP than Universe Sunstreaker's.

    Arm Modification.
    1) Remove the arm from the shoulder which is easy. All you have to do is unstrew the shoulder and slide the entire arm off

    2) Completely Remove the upper arm which is circled in yellow

    3) Remove the wheel. I used the soldering iron technique

    [​IMG]

    4) Next you need a ball joint that allows the arm to move up and down and rotate. I used the ball joint that attaches to the door that is gun/sword sheath


    [​IMG]

    5) I attached the ball part of the joint (labeled 1) on the lower arm

    6) I attached the socket part of the joint (labeled 2) on the shoulder

    [​IMG]

    7) The arrow Number two shows you where I put the socket in the shoulder
    It is a little further back then where the orginal arm was attached and this also shortens the arm so that the arm still folds back neatly

    8) I used styrene to attach the wheel to the Shoulder (front end of car)

    [​IMG]

    Just another picture of where I attached the socket in the shoulder. Make sure the arm can rotate without rubbing agains the size and that it can fold back for transformation.

    Anyway Let me know if you guys have any questions. I hope my explanations are clear. I wish I tooks pics while I was making him.
