Still waiting on the Death's Head Marvel Universe figure. Do a Legends while you're at it, Hasbro!The book begins with a healthy amount of historical context on the state of Transformers UK, which at the time was Marvel UK's biggest selling book. Editor Ian Rimmer left to do more writing, and his former assistant Simon Furman was recalled from his first-ever editorial gig at Thundercats because he's the only person with enough knowledge to do the book justice. As both editor and writer, with the book's circulation above 200,000 - this being comparable to current bestselling US comics' sales except in a country maybe a tenth the size of the USA - Furman enjoyed an unprecedented amount of freedom in his work on the book. This was aided by the fact that nobody else in the world was touching the post-Transformers: The Movie storyline, so he was beholden to no other continuity there. It's in this atmosphere that Death's Head, his enduring contribution to the Marvel Universe, was created. Death's Head began as just a generic bounty hunter that artist Geoff Senior was instructed to give a skull-like head. What Furman got back was so full of personality that he rewrote Death's Head's dialogue to tailor it to the appearance, and so the character was born.
