And finally, we have our fist images of the highly expected Prime Wars Trilogy Punch / Counterpunch for your viewing pleasure.
The images surfaced in a curious way. While Amazon website link is still inactive, a small image appeared on your Amazon wishlist. Finally, we have a modern and very nice homage to the classic G1 Autobot spy.
This is a complete new mold, but we can see some inspiration from the Deluxe Combiner Wars cars like Prowl. Anyway, we can not see any combiner port this time. The Autobot and Decepticon robot modes are very G1 style both in design and colors. As a great detail, we can see this mold has different hands for each robot mode.
Car mode, as we mentioned before, looks similar in style with Combiner Wars Deluxe cars. To top it all, we have clear images of the Prime Master included: Prima Prime.
You can check out all the images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
Yeah. I guessed that was behind it.
At least there are other options.
There's always DR Wu and Shapeways.
He’s got the minimum charge because shipping individual items was costing him more money than he was making, it’s either bulk buying or no international shipping
I wish he would remove that minimum spending amount for oversees buyers.
I'd probably need to buy doubles of several items I don't need to even reach that amount.
And that amount makes it so that I'd have to pay custom fees while I wouldn't have to if I could just buy what I want from him.
Planning to get some for my P/CP also.
I just received my new Punch/Counterpunch weapons from Nonnef as seen in Baltmatrix's video:

They arrived super fast! The link to purchase them is in BaltMatrix's video.
On my copy the circles on the shoulder posts were on the Punch side as they're supposed too?
Or I didn't understand correctly what Emgo was saying in his review.
I guess I don't have to do the fix. *shrugs*
Marcelo Matere on Instagram: “Finally got these 3 guys! Blast off , repugnus and Punc/CounterPunch. It was great working on this project! Gonna post the pencils for…”
No worries, and thanks for the advice!
I ended up fixing the droopy shoulder posts by cutting some tiny strips of paper and getting them into the rings before sliding them over the pegs, giving them a bit more friction!
Both. What you were planning to do with the screwdriver is exactly what I did with the file. It's also a blunter edge than the screwdriver is.
Sorry for the delay in responding, took my son to his first Halloween parade.
Any safe methods you'd recommend for disengaging it? I tried pushing a screwdriver through the slot on the outside of the thigh before realising that's a terrible idea lol
Did you use the nail file for disengaging or sanding? Both?
It takes some force, but the legs will come off of the mushroom pegs. I used a metal nail file (yep, you read that right) and sanded down the little ridge that formed because of the mold line and put it all back together, voila, thigh swivel.
Best advice – hopefully you simply reversed each individual shoulder pegs… swapping left to right was never discussed, but may lead to intolerance issues.
When performed correctly, they are stable, and lock into place for both modes.
As for the latter, I have no problems.
So I've finally (FINALLY) received my Punch-Counterpunch and I need advice on two bits of joint maintenance;
1) The shoulder posts, I've performed The Fix on them but I've found them to be very loose, drooping down with not much effort or weight on them. I was wondering how I'd go about tightening them up, because I've found in past the Floor Polish trick hasn't really worked for me. Maybe a small ring of paper/card on the peg to get more friction in there?
2) The thigh swivels, seen a lot of reports about how overtight they are and that shaving some plastic off can fix it, but I've NEVER disengaged a mushroom peg before, much less an overtight one, and I'm wondering if anyone has any tried-and-true methods for getting those suckers apart without breaking them?
Thanks in advance for any replies
Mine is out for delivery for today so hopefully by the evening I can be punched!
Took a nap and woke up to him in my living room. I did the mod right out the box and he is great!! Might scoop up another one before he sells out. Very dope toy
That's $32.61 USD. I can assure you that FunPub Deluxes were never that cheap… I get that the price sucks, I do, but let's not sully Amazon's name. (FunPub sucks.)
He's FINALLY in stock on Amazon.ca! Pretty shitty though that he's over $40! For a deluxe?! That's like FunPub prices!
If you don't mind my asking, when did you order yours?
I finally got mine today.
