Thanks to Seibertronian ScottimusPrime, we have a brand new review from the titled Seibertronian of the soon to be in everyone's hands Power of the Primes Punch/Counterpunch! The figure, which has begun to ship out to many Seibertronians and is set to arrive as early as tomorrow (Sunday 9/15) for some, is a brand new update to the old double spy, and includes Prima Prime and a Power of the Primes Prime Armor piece. The figure transforms between 2 robot modes, one for each named character, and a sweet looking blue car.

Check out the review below, and let us know when you get your Punch/Counterpunch, and what you think of this awesome surprise of a figure!

Status still says "Ordered" on mine with an expected delivery date of Sep 21-24. So I doubt I'll get mine tomorrow. :(

Amazon hasn't even charged me for my two figures yet... I'm hoping they do soon so I at least know that I'm getting them instead of waiting for a few months, like the last time I bought something on Amazon, where it got "lost in the mail" meanwhile they gave us the wrong tracking number for it

My Punch-Counterpunch arrived in the mail earlier this morning, but I had to leave for work shortly after and only got back home a while ago, so I haven't opened mine yet.

My P/CP shipped today, so it will get to me Tuesday. I can't wait!

As for the issues with OpOp, I had the shoulder issue on mine. So far, no issues with the plastic (so far... :???: ). I can't get the pegs on the big gorilla feet to attach to the back of the small robot's vehicle mode for the jet. I must be doing something wrong.

I preordered Repugnus and Punch about two months ago, but of course since I chose free shipping, they'll be shipped together. I'm a bit nervous though since Punch is now out of stock and my order still hasn't shipped.

Forget about what I said earlier about the hurricane. After talking with customer service it looks like they oversold P/CP and are scrounging around trying to find figures. You have no idea how pissed I am.

Oh, seriously... God dammit... Is that why they haven't charged me yet? Because they don't have the stock to even ship their pre-orders? That's bogus. What was the point of pre-ordering the damn thing if Amazon couldn't even fulfill their orders?! :BOOM:

ok, I’m sorry, but that review of Punch/Counter Punch was hella annoying. Recently, more and more toy reviews are trying to be cute. Come on guys, you’re reviewing a toy. I really don’t care what you look like or if you’re happy or not when getting the Amazon packets. If you’re gonna review the toy, show me the toy. Hold it in a way we can see the toy, put it down, take good videos of it. Snapshots, whatever. If the video have you more than the toy, you’re not reviewing the toy. You’re marketing yourself. Ok, sorry. Got it off my chest.

Btw. Still waiting for mine.

Did they completely oversell, or is this a case of they can't fill the preorders with the initial Shipment, like they did with Nemesis Prime?

Don’t know if it’s been posted yet, but HTS has Cutthroat and Blot listed now. They aren’t in stock yet, but at least they’re listed, which is new.

I think if Amazon oversold figures it isn't entirely their fault. I don't think they expected a lot of people to buy two copies of one figure, but they still should have had more stock.

Regardless of that, they still should have cut pre-orders when they did run out of stock. No matter how you slice it, it's still Amazon's fault. They know how much they're getting, and they can see how many someone is buying

you guys do realize they do this all the time, with everything? they did this exact thing (if I'm remembering correctly) for potp wave 1 back in january, shouldn't even be a surprise at this point >:oP

Only up side is, they're the only one who can sell this figure, so hasbro only has to supply one company right now

I'm not a prime member, so when I bought them it was just the "$25 and up is free" shipping. Due to that it would only let me select "group my items in as few shipments as possible." So I've had to wait an extra month for Repugnus, and if they don't ship either of them I'll be about as annoyed as humanly possible. I mean, come on, I ordered these TWO MONTHS in advance, you'd think they'd be intelligent enough to know when they've run out of stock and should stop selling.

So, wait... I preordered my Punch/Counterpunch figure about two weeks ago. It is still saying that it'll be here by Wednesday, meaning it'll be shipped tomorrow. I'd they ate outta stock now... is my figure going to be shipped or not? Note: Amazon hasn't withdrawn the money, so...

It might be shipped, it might not. Amazon just calculates when something should be there, if stock allows. They don't factor in changes in stock I don't think
