    I don't think this ever got posted here, though it is an older work.

    Basically I had a spare Titanium tank Megatron (got it way cheap when I happened to be buying some other things in a lot) and wanted to do something with it where it wouldn't fall apart if you coughed at it. The figure does not transform. In particular, the legs are superglued together for stability. I think the shoulders are probably glued on too.

    I've attached the image I used as the inspiration for the colors and layout.

    The cannon was (sort of poorly) turned into an axe using a piece of styrene. The entire cannon was removed from the shoulder; the gap left in the shoulder was filled in using wood filler (which I happened to have on hand). The axe is glued to the forearm.

    You should paint his chin/lower jaw black, so it looks like the real Straxus' face.

    I can probably oblige with some more photos (maybe in a few days, schedule's sort of weird).
