Piston Hurricane from Punch-Out!! arcade Perler

piston_hurricane_perler punch-out_piston_hurricaneI know I’ve said it in previous posts, but I really liked the Punch-Out!! arcade game. There was a coin-op arcade in my home town called “The Gold Mine” that had the first one that I had ever seen, and I was totally impressed that it had multiple screens (one above) with the characters portrait and stats.

Piston Hurricane was the second opponent in the game, and wasn’t that much tougher than Glass Joe was, but if you beat Mr. Dream, you could face a “smarter” version of him with blue instead of red gloves (same for Glass Joe). I had one bead fall over during the ironing process, but I was able to cut it out and repair. The trio of these guys looks super cool, now I just need to find a proper place to display them. =)
