Amazon have updated their listing for the upcoming Punch / Counterpunch figure, confirming a few new details. First up, we now know for certain that yes, this is the Power of the Primes representative in the “Prime Wars” celebration releases alongside Blast Off for Combiner Wars and Repugnus for Titans Return. Second, we know that he is coming with a new Prime Master – Prima Prime, aka the Prime Master incarnation of Primus’ first creation, Prima. Other details include confirmation that the figure can shift between Autobot and Decepticon modes, and that this takes nine steps, and depending on the mode the transformation into vehicle mode takes around 13-18 steps. We’re told this figure will be a faithful reflection of the original Generation 1 toy, which together with the number of steps required to go between modes suggests this figure will be a complete new mold.
The full information from the listing is reproduced below. Here’s hoping we see some pics of this celebratory trio soon, our guess is with SDCC around the corner Hasbro may use the occasion to show them off there.
