    I started making this guy a couple hours ago and there's a lot to do yet, this is what I have for now. Straxus is a bad mofo and deserves more than a deluxe figure.

    He will transform into some sort of mobile plow cannon whatever will be will be.

    Interesting idea. The proportions are still wonky, but the original toy was like that.

    Proportions are pretty accurate to the Marvel Comics (well, except for the tiny head... but still close nonetheless)

    Job well done

    Interested in how this turns out. I liked the deluxe figure, but would have preferred a voyager for him, especially for what the alt mode was.

    This is looking very promising.
    Not surprising, though. Joey always delivers!

    IMG_20170218_025357.jpg IMG_20170218_025455.jpg IMG_20170218_025532.jpg Thanks everyone for the good vibes towards my work ;) 

    Just made a few improvements to his head and also made a G1 style cannon for the altmode. Adapting a new head for this mold was a complete nightmare for there's a fucking small narrow measured room for the head and I had to cut off the old swivel neck connector so that I could glue the new balljoint neck afterwards and the new head would fit nicely... It took a lot of tests and fails untill I finally managed to make it work okay... The worst part surely is the paintjob... I kinda wish Straxus was orange and light blue.

    I'll second this comment...don't leave us hangin'!!

    I love this mold...own almost every version of it. Even a customized version ALPHAMAGNUS made for me back in the day.

    Hell, I got one in the works too...this one is getting me worked up to go back and finish it!

    Don't be mad if I "borrow" an idea or two from yours here!!

    Thanks bro. Alright this gun comes with this "Galaxy defender" guy I bought a few year ago:
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v375/garbageboxlove/for-sale/tf_ko_stealth-jets.jpg

    They were quite popular figures on toy store shelves in Brazil and now they vanished. I hope I helped ;) 

    Man your name says everything! And I love this mold too, I was just waiting for a good reason to buy one and customize it. They're expensive and hard to find here in Brazil though. I need to buy another one for I want to make an Jihaxus out of it. (I know it's crazy but I'm sure I can make it work)
    And you may borrow as many of my ideas as you want pal!
