Default Deluxe PotP Punch/Counterpunch

This was partly mentioned in the Deluxe-class Repugnus thread (link) however since more details have come to light this probably deserves its own thread.
There is a listing on Amazon (link) that originally stated it was for a PotP Counterpunch but we now have more information.

It's is now listed as Transformers Power of the Primes Punch-Counterpunch and Prima Prime with the following details.
The pack is a "Special Edition" Power of the Primes Figure similar to TR Arcee and TR Grotusque.
It includes two figures, a Deluxe Class Punch/Counterpunch figure that can convert between Autobot, Decepticon, and sports car as well as a Prime Master called Prima Prime.
The package also includes 2 accessories which I assume are modern representations of his Twin Mortar Launcher and Photon Cannon.

No pictures as of yet.

It's become harder to collect official toys nowadays. Prices and shipping costs have gone up, toy quality has gone down and you have to jump through hoops to buy something. It was easier/better a few years ago.

Iím seeing a Pointblank pre-mould... which makes me happy.

But whatís the bet this, like the recent Repugnus and Grotusque will be extremely difficult and/or expensive to get for us? Surely, SURELY if no retailer in Aus *wants* to stock these kind of things, Hasbro can sell them to us directly?

Definitely could do a remould for Pointblank!

Wonder when we'll start seeing some pre-orders and release date

If I was to guess I'd say 6 months till pre orders go up, based off the time it took from the announcement of Repugnus (about January) to the opening of the pre orders (just recently).
But who knows could be a lot sooner based on the fact that they've released pictures of the toy.
He looks great, a must buy for me

It would really surprise me if they make this toy (and Repugnus) very limited and hard to chase up outside of America, because it isn't just a cheap redeco.... they are both either significantly remoulded, or close to a whole new mould, so should need more units produced to pay for it.
(then again, Grotusque was really limited too and hard to acquire outside of America, and it was also a heavy remould)

This, plus the fact that Repugnus has a release date of 1/8, and has had pre-orders come and sell out at Robot Kingdom within days, and no other retailer (that I am aware of) carrying it.
