    I know that there was the repaint of the Deluxe Jetstorm a few years ago released as a Jhiaxus. But it didn't feel like Jhiaxus toy without his distinctive head.

    Considering in the last few years we've seen comic only characters like The Fallen and Straxus getting their own toys, and the FOC Onslaught repaint of Impactor due next year, I am getting ever more hopeful that one day Hasbro will decide its time to release a Jhiaxus toy.

    Question is whether it'll be a repaint/ remold of an existing figure, or something new entirely. Either way, I know I'll want it.

    Well, the movie series need a new set of antagonists, so you never know your luck: they may pick Jhiaxus.

    Maybe in TF4 you'll get your wish or perhaps in TFP/Beast Hunters.

    Prime Dreadwing/Skyquake is really a very good Jhiaxus match with a new head.

    -ZacWilliam, I'm hopefully the club will do it I'd Hasbro doesn't.

    Hell, if we can get a new Skyquake in the first place, and a Straxus toy before that, ANYTHING is possible.

    I remember some time ago there was a guy over in radicons who made a really nice IDW Jhiaxus from the Movie 1 Preview Starscream figure.

    We got Straxus and Black Shadow.

    I'm sure we'll get a Jhiaxus.

    Not before he appears in Regeneration One, I think.

    I thought the story behind Jhiaxus's name was pretty funny. I remember reading that the name was almost a dare to say "gee axe us" or "go ahead and axe us" for the G2 comic series. The comic did at least finish its first story arc before being "axed." Funny stuff.

    Considering the 2003 release the character is on Hasbro's radar. I'm not sure about the licensing though.

    Dude, where is your sig from? I mean, Shockwave beating the hell out of Megatron??? I'm half expecting the next pannel to have a scene where Starscream swoops in to save Megs amd carry him off into the distance as Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" plays in the background.

    :lolol  ^^

    I hope to see a Classics-verse Jhiaxus but if designed right I'd be happy with a Movie aesthetic similarly designed as Bludgeon & Seaspray were.

    If we ever get a Generations,Movie verse or TFP Jhiaxus toy then I have a few restrictions placed on it.

    It must be based off the Marvel TF G-2 Comics Jhiaxus character persona. somewhat look like the G-2 TF Marvel comics Jhiaxus designs in both modes.

    The toy must be Voyager,Ultra or Leader sized. Because I hate the smaller toys given to high ranking bigger sized TF toys. Jhiaxus was a high ranking leader & had a huge body.

    Please no generations Jhiaxus toys based off that awful IDW TF comics Jhiaxus character.
    this character was a direct insult to the G-2 Jhiaxus character & designs. the IDW version was short,a yes man,low ranking soldier. he was a wimp,had no fighting skills & was weak. creepy & monsterous ugly looking distorted designs in both modes. a weird mad scientist persona that was insane.

    This is really funny to me in a thread focused on a comic character, lol. Shockwave waltzed in and took over/killed everyone when OP and Megs were fighting in the second story arc of Marvel. That panel is the aftermath of when Megatron tried to fight back.

    Why do you think people even LIKE Shockwave? :lol

    Because he was Megatron's right hand man on Cybertron and he could turn into a giant purple laser that was once forcibly wielded by one of the most badass combiners ever.

    I still think that Cybertron Starscream would make a great base for Jhiaxus. Jhiaxus in the comic looks like an evolution of the Seeker body style, which is appropriate, and the head is pretty much perfect. Plus, it's big and hefty. I'm genuinely shocked the BotCon G2 set didn't include it. Hey, Pete, if you're taking suggestions for next year's BotCon set, or Club exclusives, you could do a lot worse than this one. Just sayin'...

    Yeah, I'd be happy with just about any kind of official release. Apart from maybe bot-shots ;)
