    This has been done before, just thought I'd take the concept a little further...

    Resculpted head, feet & shins with styrene / putty
    Styrene arm-blades
    Modified transformation for hunchback appearance
    Hands from a terminator figure - can hold pretty much any TF weapon that came with a deluxe figure.
    Still transforms just fine, should anyone actually want to...

    Will post more pics if there's any interest :)  Enjoy

    What figure is that? I cannot place it. And love me some Jhiaxus! Great job. The styrene doesn't eve look like it was added, but that it was supposed to be there in the first place.

    Nevermind, figured it out, Protoform SS.

    Protoform Movie Starscream.

    Nice work - you've really captured the look of the bot mode. I've never had this mould, but is there anyway you could cobble together some kind of alien jet mode, perhaps?

    Lol, OK, when I find some batteries I'll photo the altmode.

    Well spotted :) 

    Thanks for the praise, it was my first time with Styrene and I'm rather pleased with how it worked out. Amazing stuff, I'm really gonna cut back on the putty as a result.

    edit: @Ramrider - it kinda has a cybertronian jet altmode thing... the arm blades give it extra 'wings' of sorts. It's not amazing, but then I'm not even sure the IDW character has an altmode... he's never been drawn with one.

    Thanks for all the kind words folks - more photos are forthcoming, just as soon as the batteries show up.

    If anyone's interested in purchasing one of these, do speak up :)

    I don't really know anything about proto. screamer but how did you modify his transfomaton to give him the hunch?

    He has an automorph gimmick that pops up his head when you fold his shoulders forward. I modified it to keep the shoulders swung back and his head recessed somewhat. Hard to explain without taking it apart... which ain't gonna happen :p 

    OP updated with Altmode images :) 

    Sadly I must part with the little fella to raise some much-needed funds for future projects. If anyone's interested please PM me, otherwise he's gonna wind up on eBay.

    Holy Shit! Are you gonna sell this? If not Would you be open to doing a commission? That is one the best Jhiaxus customs I have ever seen.

    I've never been a fan of the Protoform figure, but the bot mode on him looks quite excellent. Any chance you could work some wings onto him for more of that regal warlord look?
