    Part of me still wishes there was a chance he'd be a combiner limb...

    I was hoping it'd be another retool of the Breakdown mold that looks identical to the TFCC Counterpunch in car mode but turns into Punch instead

    Yeah, I know he was a bot who had one alt mode and 2 bot modes... but I could have been happier with a set of clones like this, one punch, the other counter.

    everything eventually evolves, right?

    Likewise. Isn't that as it should be, though? The release date says Sep 15 on Amazon.

    I'm a bit behind here, but is Punch an Amazon exclusive? I was kinda hoping I might be able to pick one up when I go to New York Comic Con next month

    Man, he looks great. Wonderful photies!

    Looking at this picture below I'm increasingly sure there's another step in the transformation sequence, where his knees tabs into his lower legs to make him a bit smaller in Autobot mode. The thought's been there ever since the first clear photos came through, but every time I see another picture that thought gets stronger. I guess we'll see when he starts landing.

    So as of now, the transformation is: adjust shoulder pads, and turn the figure around? :/

    You don't need to turn the head round. He's got a face either side. From what I can see, the transformation from Punch to Counterpunch is adjust the helmet and shoulders, possibly tab the knees into the lower legs, and flip the hands round.

    If they were going to do his robot transformations like that, I literally don’t see why he couldn’t also have the combiner gimmick. The transformation from autobot to decepticon is too simple. I was hoping to have two different head scalpes instead of them being fused together. They look great, don’t get me wrong. I was just hoping for more, if they were going to leave out the combiner bits.

    But they didn’t “leave out the combiner bits”, he wasn’t designed with them from the start and anyone thinking he was going to be a limb was fooling themselves
