Mold-wise, the new Jhiaxus toy is based on his IDW design. The Armada Starscream on its own even has some Jhiaxus-based molding details that it shouldn't have as Starscream, such as Jhiaxus's three-holed crotch.
I don't remember IDW Jhiaxus having wings hanging off his upper arms. Also where is the thruster on his back? Three holes in his crotch doesn't do it for me.
I said "some
" details not "all".
The Starscream figure on its own has the following Jhiaxus-based parts: The three-holed crotch, the abs molded on the front of the spine, the lower ribcage vents*, (though Starscream has these too, the ones on this figure have been "massaged", so to speak, to resemble those of both him and Jhiaxus), among other tiny details.
And the Jhiaxus remold has even more similarities to the IDW look, such as the shape of his whole upper torso, right down to the tiny trapezoidal shape on his chest. The RiD-based deco a really the main knock against this figure's comic-accuracy.
The figure itself can even be hunched over like IDW Jhiaxus:
And IDW Jhiaxus does have wings, they're just usually tucked away behind his back, which, as the above pic shows, this figure can do (they aren't "hanging off his upper arms", they're attached to his back on ball joints behind his shoulders).
