Amazon.com updated their Transformers Power of the Primes Counterpunch listing with not only a descritpion of the toy but a new name for the listing itself: Transformers Power of the Primes Punch-Counterpunch and Prima Prime

That right there gives us two solid new bits of info where we learn that the Prime Master the toy will come with is Prima Prime and that the toy can turn into both Punch and Counterpunch. The description states that this toy is meant to reflect the G1 toy and that it will be a premium release similar to the previous Arcee and Grotusque special releases.

Below is all the Amazon listings gives us for the descprition. It seems to be a completely new mold for it to achieve what is described.

Special Edition Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Figures
Deluxe Class Punch-Counterpunch figure converts between Autobot, Decepticon, and sports car modes
Punch-Counterpunch figure is designed to reflect the G1 release with 2 distinct robot modes and features premium details
Includes a special edition Prima Prime Master and comes in special edition packaging
Includes Deluxe Class Punch-Counterpunch figure, special edition Prima Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.


Celebrate the Prime Wars Trilogy with this special edition Power of the Primes Punch-Counterpunch figure. Featuring 2 robot modes (both Autobot and Decepticon) and a vehicle mode, the Autobot double agent was a huge hit when he was originally released in 1987. This version has been faithfully designed to reflect the original G1 figure. Plus, it comes with the special edition clear ice blue Prima Prime Master figure. The 5.5-inch scale Deluxe Class figure comes with a 1.5-scale Prima Prime Master figure and a Prime Armor accessory. Insert the Prime Master figure into the accessory, attach it to the figure's chest, and imagine Punch wields the power of a Prime. The Punch-Counterpunch figure converts from Decepticon to Autobot in 9 steps and from robot to sports car in 13 or 18 steps. The Prime Master figure converts between robot and spark modes in 1 step.

Of note, this will be the second of the "lost" Prime Masters released, after Onyx. Better, the Prime Armor is included! Calling Waverider right here and now!

Looks like Punch/Counterpunch is only going to have one blaster between both modes since one of the accessories has to be the Prime Master papoose.

O crap, misread. No Decoy Armor, but Prime Armor, the Hand kind... :BANG_HEAD: Still calling Micronus/Cloudburst retool.

Oh crap, I misread that, too. Puch/Counterpunch is going to be one complicated figure basically having five modes: Punch, Counterpuch, car, arm, and leg. I was happier thinking he wasn't going to be a combiner and they'd be able to do something more G1 with the figure like giving it proper four arms. But either way I'm buying two.

So that's all of the exclusives counted for, right? I wonder what the plan will be for the last two and if they regret including Megatronus a second time with Blast Off?

Repugnus, in addition to Titan Master Dastard (drat and double drat), will come with Solus Prime, who's normally available with Octopunch in Wave 3. So count a second one for the "regret" :lol:

I can't wait until this comes out! I never thought we would ever see a G1 accurate Punch any time soon. The collectors club one is nice, but expensive, and I would like something better than that.

Plot Twist: its that over priced Tiny Headed exclusive and he gets scalped so you have to pay more for him anyway.

(No, we dont know that this is who that is. Then again, we dont know its not who that is

Nexus Prime: gift set with redecos/retools of Inferno, Rook or Brawl, Vortex/Blades, Firefly/Quickslinger and Air Raid/Thrust or Skydive/Starscream. ;;)
Amalgamous: Great Shot :lol:

Is Punch/Counterpunch a combiner? Or a Titans Return figure? Or something new?

Most likely a new mold(with two robot modes) and combiner(as he comes with a prime armor).

What if Punch/Counterpunch is a retool of Jazz, with the head flipped around to go between chest and roof chests? And maybe actual rotating fists, since Jazz does have wrist joints even if they are useless, but this time they will be more useful?

Either way, stoked for Punch. Now I gotta hope that when Nemesis, Punch/Counterpunch, Blastoff, and Repugnus come in stock, I can scoop them up.

As for the final 2 Prime Masters, what if towards the end of the year we get 2 new boxsets, one with Monstructor and one with Dinoking, and they come with the final 2?

You know, what if this is a new mold or a heavy retool and the tradeoff for making 2 separate robot modes was ditching the combiner peg? The prime armor might be just that (armor) in this case.

8 steps to go from autobot to decepticon sounds like a little more than just a simple retool of an existing mold.

Confirmation that Prima is evil in new canon.

Also, retool for Shockwave/Onyx Prime when?

Thanks to a sighting reported on Ozformers by user Starshine, we have news that the newest leader class figure for Power of the Primes, Optimus Primal and Optimal Optimus, have been found at Australian retail! The figure was found at a Big W in Warringah Mall. It was the only Optimal Optimus available at that store, though it did have also have the other 3 leader figures currently available there as well. This release is set to correspond with the Australia Mid-Year Toy Sale, with the leader class deals beginning on June 21st.

Check out the image of Optimal below, and let us know if you plan to pick up this new Leader class figure! And when this guy shows up in the other regions of the world, let us know!

Good to see he's made it down here (along with Rodimus Unicronus apparently, whom I hadn't realised was in Australia yet either). If he's around during Big W's toy sale I may have to pick him up after all; he's not the most appealing to me but for under $70 it's hard to say no to such a unique figure.

Now all I need is for the Wave 2 Deluxes and Wave 3 Prime Masters to turn up around here, and I'll be all set for "needs" from this line... it's weirdly refreshing not feeling a compulsion to buy every single toy like I was doing during TR :lol:

I spent about half the day trying to figure out what mold they might use (since I HIIIIIIIIIGHLY doubt they would use an entirely new mold) and the one that I thought would fit best is Jazz. Especially considering that, apart from sharing his combiner joint with Drag Strip, he is one of the VERY few to not get a repaint/remold/retool.

As for Prime Masters, I'm still not convinced that there will just be another wave. Given that SO MUCH of Power of the Primes was (unintentionally) leaked, I could see Hasbro withholding a wave of toys to be a surprise.
