    ain't that the truth!

    After looking at it again, and depending on the size you want, either smaller animated Megatron could work. The deluxe 2 pack version, or the voyager figure.

    :lol 

    You know after looking at the pics....I would have to agree with you....a few mods here and there, some wings and what not....

    We already know, thanks to Autobotx23, Big Hank and Rumble02, that Mirage makes an awesome looking jet....so why not a flying cannon thingy too?!

    Well, Straxus was kinda bulky, so maybe a heavily modded Universe Ironhide?

    Cybertron Crumplezone.

    Still needs some work to get it right, but the foundation is there, and it preserves Straxus' brutish, heavy-set appearance.

    energon megatron eh, i suppose if you turn him upside down he's pretty much there already, would just need a new head and swap his nosecone for a fat gun and not much more, very rough example:

    I have been working on one using Crumplezone as the base. Movie Starscreams head slightly modified and replaced the arms with those of Energon Broadside. Trying to make the ax now. I still need to redo the chest, but I did remove the canopy and trimmed done the excess plastic. Just wish I had someway to upload some pics.
