    So, I just found out that Kranix had an alt mode!?!? and he was also originally supposed to a rock guy?!?

    PXL_20231230_211539754.jpg some modifications was needed so that the transformation can happen

    This is great! Always love a new Kranix/Granix. This really captures Kranix essence despite it being a different interpretation of the character. These infernac dudes are perfect for a “what if Hasbro never changed plans for the Lithones.”

    Are you going to make his buddy Arblus/Marblus?

    That's great! Chris McFeely (Transformers, the Basics) just did a whole episode dedicated to him! Excellent work!

    If you just learned about it this week that is one heck of a rapid fire custom.

    That looks incredible, really captures the transformation from the concept art, while also being given the even earlier 'Rock Lords' treatment! Any chance of a regular Kranix custom as well as a Granix? I've always wanted to see fully transformable Arblus and Kranix toys based on the concept art.

    This is the kind of thing that immediately goes from 'Neat custom!" to "Start a toy company and mass-produce this thing!"

    Whole lotta talent.

    If I ever see a suitable figure as a base, I will give them a shot

    Genius! I'd read about the Granix / Marblus concept a few years ago, so when the Armorizers were rumoured, I wondered if this was the plan. Now you've made it a reality and I love it! Excellent work!

    Thanks, I am glad that you like him.
    when I saw the design of granix, I knew I had to at least try it make him with the rocklord mold, it's a perfect match, I won't be surprised if Hasbro end up retool Bouldercrash and make him themselves

    Well, "litho" is a greek word that means "stone", so it makes sense...
