    Kranix
    the last survivor of lithone.

    I have always loved kranix and his friend arblus from the moment I saw the movie.
    (if you do not know who they are they are the guys who have their planet eaten by
    unicron and kranix is later fed to the sharkticons) So I decided to make a custom of them.
    You guys may have seen my 7” quintesson prosecutor posted on the boards a while ago well
    kranix is the next in line (the upcoming quintessons and sharkticons have to have something
    to execute:) 

    Kranix is in the gen 1 scale and is about 6 inches tall (like gen 1 hot rod and kup etc)
    kranix is articulated at the neck, shoulders,hips and knees, so you can display him in
    multiple ways. Kranix also comes with an alternate head (it is completely removable and
    is very easy to swap the two heads over)I made a second head because many people like a
    more neutral look on a characters face myself included but I couldn't make kranix without
    having his screaming face.(it’s the face he makes right after he says
    “spare me this mockery of justice”….and is promptly fed to the sharkticons).

    As I said with the quint prosecutor the folks who buy this will have first offer
    on the next figure (which is arblus and is a completely different sculpt not a repaint)
    these guys are going to be an extremely limited run less than 20 worldwide (less than
    the quintessons) and once they are gone that’s it. So if you have any questions or
    comments please email me at lots_of_great_toys@yahoo.com and I will answer you right away.
    Bye bye
    here are all the pics

    And you know, I finally figured out why the assembly looks familiar to me...it reminds me a bit of the BW build-a-figure Transmutate.

    hi guys i have gotten a few emails asking what the ball joints are made of (oddly enough) so i thought i would let you all know that they are specially bought from japan and are a very very strong clear plastic, this way they dont brake at all and are much tougher.

    also i really liked the pics of the crazysteve version of kranix thanx for posting them up. ok bye bye
