Following on from the first batch of in hand photos of this long-awaited figure, and to a tip off from fellow Seibertron user, Cyberpath, we now have more photographs from Clement Soh (via his Facebook page).

Included in this batch, are shots showing the prime armour as jet pack for both Punch and Counterpunch, a look at the back of the figure in each mode. There is also two group shots of Punch with the Autobot Clones and Counterpunch with the Decepticon Clones.

These figure is due to be shipped this month, for those who have ordered it from Amazon, being the third exclusive following Shuttle mold Blast Off (representing Combiner Wars) and Repungus with Titan Master Dastard (representing Titans Return).

A jetpack with a built-in power slot for the soul of a god. Eat your heart out, James Bond, that is some absurd gadgetry for a spy. :lol:

The question is, which prime works best with a jet pack...I'm thinking Vector Prime, as the jet pack becomes a time machine.

I'd say Solus Prime, for a self-repairing/self-upgrading piece of equipment.

Onyx Prime, so the poor guy doesn't have to fly in the cargo section of the plane in a crate any more.

The more I look at Punch/Counterpunch the more I think a potential repaint/retool would be Siege Drift/Deadlock.

Also, wouldn't the best fit be alchemist prime for a constant fuel supply for the jet pack?

I really think P/CP will either be a fanatic figure, or the worst toy ever made; no middle ground.

From the pics I see no reason to think he will be horrible. Certainly not visually, at least. He's a top notch, perfectly on the nose update to the G1 figure.

The correct answer as to who should go into the jetpack is Nightbeat's head screaming for dear life's sake. :P

Come on, have you seen TR Nightbeat's face sculpt?

Transformers Titans Return Nightbeat Gallery

(in case anyone wonders, that face is more than likely designed for Siren, who had his toy head design switched with Nightbeat's for the Marvel comics)


Seriously tho, Punch and Nightbeat do share a faint connection, via this Kre-O Microchanger:

Modeled after Punch, but named "Nightbeat" for the usual reason.

Pointblank would work, but my first thought for a reuse was Tracks, the color and shape of the car mode is nearly identical, they would just have to paint the Punch side blue and give him a new head.

I'd rather the plastic and moving-parts of the little figure and jetpack had been allocated to giving him feet instead. But he looks good regardless. The double-agent gimmick is cool.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertron user, Cyberpath and Loopaza Mega Store's Facebook page, we now have a release date for Takara Tomy's Prime Wars punch/Counterpunch! He is being released as part of their Power of the Primes line and is due to come out in February. Thus is a great opportunity for those who missed out on getting him from Amazon, which he is exclusive to in the US and a few other areas.
