    Pretty sure he's talking about the BLUE stickers on his back, as he stated, not purple chest parts. They're visible in the picture links he posted. :)

    Does anybody think they might do these guys in Diaclone colors. I just found out that there are Diaclone colors

    I would try isopropyl alcohol to take them off, turps or meth might damage plastic...might take a few tries to take off.

    Yeah it does look kinda weird, I was hoping toyhax would do something cool to cover them up, maybe toon, and toy options?

    Just thought I'd show off one of my most recent purchases, the badcube clear versions. I know that these were not very popular but I love them! I asked Badcube about production quantities, they wouldn't give exact numbers (understandable) but stated that they are rarer than the new repaint of Wardog. Didn't only get them for the rarity though, I'm a sucker for a transparent transformer :)

    if you would like to see bug mode pics then stay tuned, weather permitting I'll be transforming these and taking some shots next weekend. Why weather permitting? Well, to show off the clear plastic I like to shoot them in sunlight, I live in SoCal though so shouldn't be too hard to find a nice weekend!

    In robot mode, how do the badcube insecticons compare to fans toys size-wise? Is there a huge discrepancy?

    I'm looking to build up my supply of BadCube energon cubes.

    Will buy ($15 for 3 cubes, shipped) or trade for FT energon cubes (2 FT cubes for 1 BC cube... though I'm currently down to only 3 FT cubes following a recent trade).

    Badcube has the better Kickback, but FT has the superior Shrapnel. No reason why you can't mix and match, of course...

    This is what I was thinking as far as mix and match. I have to say, the shoulder ring clip on fanstoys worries me.

    I do love my fanstoys shrapnel though.

    I just got FT's Shrapnel and it basically just reminded me why I had skipped it the first time through. The kibble at the back is just darn ugly and the transformation is not fun. It looks really good from the front though.

    I finally got around to transforming these guys and I'm having a problem with Hypno. One of his bug legs snapped clean off the hinge :( 

    [​IMG]

    Should I contact Badcube about this? Is it even possible that a replacement part to be sent? It doesn't cause any problems in bot mode because it's clipped on securely to his back, but in bug mode there is nothing to hold it on.

    Any advice on what to do?

    I would contact your retailer and see what they can do for you.

    Only have the clear versions but this should give you an idea. As for the FT kibble legs, I'm trying to go for a Dr Octopus look to them :)

    Thank you for the image. This is by far the clearest image of what I was looking for; makes the decision a whole lot easier. Long live the mix and match.

    So to be clear, the only one in this pic that is the FT version is the gray chest version of Bomsbshell?

    Anybody else find Bombshell's arms kinda scary to move? Their connection to the shoulders is just plastic and feels like you could snap them easily, because the shoulder semi-circles are really stiff and tight.

    Yes. A lot of joints actually. All you need is some plastic lubricant. I used it on a bunch of joints and it really helps.

    For me, what really annoys the hell out of me is that on Shrapnel's bug mode, his face plate is hard to get closed fully around his bot mode head. You can get it flush with some fiddling but I don't like it.

    Get it flush BEFORE you collapse the sides/face plate. Much easier.

    The Shrapnel and Bombshell are both fans toys. Kickback is badcube. I may have lied to you because I did not realize that I was not looking at the right picture. Ignore me.
