I'm blown away by this project! I've been thinking about doing a Death's Head myself, but after seeing this fella, I may just have to buy one from fourth_heir! If anyone else has a custom Transformer they'd like to see featured, by all means email me and let me know!|
Here's the low-down on fourth_heir's custom Death's Head in his own words:
I'd always wanted a figure of Death's Head ever since his first appearance in "Wanted: Galvatron — Dead or Alive" back in the 80's. Years of patience were rewarded with the arrival of Stikfas — I finally had the blank canvas I needed.

The missiles were taken from a model plane and the kneepads and axe came from Games Workshop Space Orks. The rifle is the chopped up remains of three of the guns that came with the original Stikfa.
