Death's Head is an unusual character in Transformers lore. A "freelance peace keeping agent", he was used extensively during the golden era of the 1980s UK Transformers comics - particularly in the 1987 / 1988 story arcs which saw Galvatron timejump to the then-present day, with Rodimus and others in hot pursuit. However, while Death's Head had a lot of page-time in the UK Transformers comics, he never made it to the US Marvel Transformers comics - and because he was owned by Marvel rather than Hasbro, he's never been used in Transformers since, never mind getting a toy.
That has all changed though, because Death's Head has now had an action figure released in the 3.75 inch Marvel Infinite Series collection. He's richly detailed and features his axe, buckler and mace accessories - the axe and mace can replace his fists, like the classic artwork. He's a fun little figure, although the hard rubber skirt tends to limit his legs a bit.
