    These should actually be pretty easy to downsize and stay intact.

    Sounds cool. Are they the ones that made the Dinobots, Blaster, and Shockwave?

    Aren't WST toys the size of legends figures?

    Easy pass because I don't consider legends to belong to any line and I do not collect legends class figures.

    Give me my FP Ninja Insects.

    WST size is even smaller than legends :)  I'm interested in these cause I want to collect all insecticons molds :D  But FP ones seem from another planet indeed :)

    I feel the same way about Legends size figures... they don't really work in my collection. However, if you were going to have tiny little versions of any G1 characters, the Insecticons would make the most sense at least, right? :)

    I have to disagree. I know the Insecticons were on the smaller side of Decepticons but Legends is just too small. I am content, and I stressONLY content, that the minibots came out in legends class because they are..well mini. But after gettign Huffer (botcon) and Windcharger, not to forget Seaspray, powerglide and the upcoming deluxe warpath, even the legends minibots are looking out of place.

    I will say this though. I do love the Insecticons so I can see the appeal of this item....once again, Come on FP give me my Ninja Insects.

    I disagree.
    The Insecticon toys are pretty small, I think a little smaller than Reflector, so whilst these may be a little too small, having them around the PE Rumble/Frenzy height is a pretty good size for them, imo.

    Again, I think we feel the same way. The Legends Minibots only really look good if you're posing them with one of those Deluxe-sized Primes (which don't fit into the collection very well themselves).

    But my point with the WST Insecticons was more in reference to the fact that the Insecticons could change their size in insect mode, so there's a certain appeal to having a tiny Bombshell hiding on your MP Grimlock's shoulder, y'know? :)
