Starscream mutilated for neat custom Hulkbuster Ultron photo
Starscream mutilated for neat custom Hulkbuster Ultron
by Scarecroodle

Pack Rat Studios has crafted a custom "Hulkbuster Ultron" and, if you like it, you can bid on it via ebay right now (or rather bid within the next 4 days).

The custom appears to be kit-bashed from a Transformers "Hunt for the Decepticons" Leader-class Starscream and an Iron Man Legends Ultron. While I can't identify the torso piece, it reminds me of something that I may have seen on one of Hasbro's Iron Man figures. It's topped off by a pretty awesome paint job on figures which originally had unremarkable paint apps.

The concept is pretty cool. Movie Starscream's design was a horrific mess that works well as a clunky Hulkbuster build. The overall design also looks surprisingly menacing and, because it's a leader-class, it's large enough to stand over most Hulk figures (be they Marvel Legends (seen in gallery) or Select). 

The custom's starting bid is US$150 and, in fairness, the HftD Starscream alone is pretty expensive on the aftermarket these days (although, if you were lucky enough to catch him at TJ Maxx/Marshall's a few years aback, he was only US$25).

While I mourn for poor ol' Starscream, I can't help but think that Michael Bay did far worse to the character. Be sure to check out all of the images in the gallery.
