If you're a Transformers fan and you haven't heard of this guy, I don't blame you. He only ever appeared in the UK comics, and then Marvel took him away to do what they liked with him. That said, he had his origins in I think it was 'Target 2006', if I remember correctly. I remember borrowing some of the UK comics from my local library and being shocked at the violence. Seriously; it was 1986 movie-grade violence here. Every since that day, I've been fascinated with the character. This good 'ol 'freelance peacekeeping agent' isn't having his first time in Lego, but I don't think someone's made a transforming version yet. So, that's a first!
About this creation

Death's head was once a bounty hunter, insisting on being called a 'freelance peacekeeping agent'. He travelled around the galaxy, until he one day came across the planet Junkion. After being almost killed by some locals, he was saved by Windblade. Mortally wounded, he was taken to Cybertron and given the ability of transformation. Leaving, Windblade decided to leave the war behind and join him. Now, partners, they seek out war criminals and attempt to find out just who attacked them...

Here's the picture I used as a reference.

From now on, I'm showing the LDD pictures first. This helps get the likes.


The colours are based on his TF Comics incarnation, rather than the blue and yellow version from his own comic.

Okay, so starting off you can see he transforms into a Cybertronian car.


Most of the outside actually transforms into his 'kibble cape', with the only visible parts not doing so being the windshield (which becomes the chest) and the back section (which becomes the lower torso and the legs).


He has these two things on the back that serve a better purpose in robot mode than here, but it works okay.


No roads? Transform the wheels!


And it's not a hovercar!


I forgot to mention, but the wheels at the back were inspired by train wheels.

I've been trying to get the old embed code to work. I hope this one does; it shows off the LDD file and transformation. The song is 'Batida Diferente', played by jazz saxophonist 'Cannonball Adderly'.

And here's the robot mode!


The kibble cape doesn't actually look as bad in robot mode, unlike the LDD file may suggest.


I really wanted to do a full kibble cape one day, and Death's Head brought that opportunity to the table. It turned out quite well, and it's supported well with those two prongs at the back.


The head is as close as I could get it to the UK comic counterpart.


And he comes with a sword and a shield!

Looks good, Declan. Having no access to said comic references, I'll trust your judgment as to his appearance in the TF realm - why not? Someone else is doing GoBots, whose existance I have seen. (bleh! Transformers rule, GoBots drool!) I looked this guy up on TFWiki, he looks badas... er wicked mean. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Death%27s_Head Awesome build!
