    Obviously there isn't a lot of toys in that particular color scheme so we'll have to do away with that (unless you're willing to custom suitable toys into that color scheme).

    I think Movie Decepticons and Star Wars villians would make good substitutes. Especially when the regular Autobots and Decepticons they are fighting against are the eighties and early nineties toys. The advancement in appearance would give them a true second generation look completely different to how the eighties Transformers look.

    My first thought was the SWTF villains as well.

    Movie Starscream? Beast Machines Primal? - for his IDW look, that is.

    Apparently, the upcoming Hailstorm is based on one of Jhiaxus' lieutenants, Mindset.

    Jhiaxus himself I'm thinking will be getting a proper toy very shortly. If Straxus is getting a toy, how long before Jhiaxus joins Generations? Failing that, the Titanium Seeker mold is pretty close to his G2 robot mode design so a decent custom paint job will give you the big guy.

    I forgot about RID Jhiaxus. And I was just about to say, the BM deluxe Jetstorm mold.

    And I hope we get a Jhiaxus in this years Botcon set.

    I'm actually pretty surprised nobody's made this kitbash/repaint yet.
