    While reading Transformers:Stormbringer I got a great idea for a new kitbash.
    In the 3rd issue there's a single shot of an autobot battlecruiser,
    which in my opinion looked a lot like the Japanese SkyGarry.

    Here's the result.

    [EDIT]

    Treadshot A1 made me realise I did need to put on some BFG's on it.
    I found some old Mech figure, and used his cannonarms.

    If you don't know how the starship looks like just check my blog here: Click, because I'm not permitted to upload the picture here.

    LMK what you guys think :)

    So, it's a straight repaint of DeathGarrygun?

    Looks pretty good. I do notice some paint lines that could be touched up, but not too bad.

    Nice how the split front end of the vehicle mode allows for more prominent feet. :)

    Oh, alright. Gotcha. Didn't realize it was still WIP. Looks good so far. :)  For a straight repaint, it is surprisingly comic-accurate. No, if only it had those twin BFG's at the front... ;) 

    Um, what?

    Yes...sweet job. I was fascinated by the Xantium, the fists were so obvious...I wanted to see it transformed.

    I believe the ship design was based on his Macromaster, Stronghold. Which is friggin huge.

    Great custom man! :)
