    Is it just me, or is the Counterpunch's rubsign attached more crooked in one pic than the other?

    ...and the purple/green tail section just seems out of place.

    Otherwise, looking pretty good.

    Well, I have yet to be arrested and had my fingernails pulled out during a harsh interrogation, so I can take care of the rubsigns if need be. I am glad CP doesn't have a blatant Autobot brand on his upper back. I'd prefer he go entirely symbolless.

    The sculpt is fairly mediocre in my opinion. The head is much smaller than either Sideswipe's or Sunstreaker's....Size-wise it reminds me of Energon Omega Supreme when you take off his headmaster guy and leave the little round port as a head. Maybe Fansproject will make a proper head. Kinda miffed about having had to beg the wife to let me drop $60 + shipping on him.

    I can hear her now: "That's it?"

    I rather like the rub symbols, but I don't think they're part of it.

    The hands could've been easily redone. Energon Optimus Prime's fists come to mind, like on the white "coptor 2'. the thumb is on the side, instead of on top of one side or the other, thus becoming effective on both sides.

    Looks pretty good, though the head does seem a little on the small side.

    Looking fantastic! I almost wish the Punch head was more silver with a Prime-esque mouth guard, though. But that's a small nitpick.

    Those rubsigns aren't in the same positions in those photos, so It's almost definitely fan-applied

    Easily redone, yes. Cheaply redone, another matter. They swap arms as easily as you'd move the gun from the shoulder to the fist.

    I really don't have a problem with the head. :lol  I have more of a problem with the small pictures.

    This. I'm glad I was able to get my pre-order for 17 :p 



    .... Seriously I kid, though I did preorder an extra to hook up a certain board member who shall remain nameless.

    The nice part is that anyone who doesn't want their P/CP will easily be able to sell it.

    Looks real nice! Has the engine piece always be able to snap onto the gun or was it just remolded for this

    I really hope FunPub can work out a way to extend the run for P/CP so others can get him (and so I can add 1 more to my pre-order :)  ). I'm hoping it's 'keystoning' from the camera lens & angle that's causing the head to look a bit small. Though looking at Sideswipe's head, this head isn't that much smaller (if any).

    Always been able to do that, it doesn't hold together particulary well though.

    personally, for as much as they charged for this guy, he does not look that great, head is too small, and the paint looks sloppy specially on the head

    I would be disappointed if I'd pre-ordered him, that head sculpt is not the one : /
