    Those clear-ish versions are pretty nice (for clones)....Are all of those photos augmented? The eyes look like they light up, and I'm fairly certain no version of these ever had electronics.

    The Value pack is the only purchase of BadCube product where I said (internally) "I'm 100% satisfied with these and I can cross those characters off of my Original Series MP list" (despite one of the pieces slicing through my thumb).

    Why is this dead thread up, again?

    I'm trying to figure out if I should go for these or wait and get the MMC Insecticons coming out soon?

    Also, I like the Collector's edition for the clear amber chest pieces, but I heard that the QC is not as good as compared to the value pack? Is this true? Are the die cast parts not as well made as the plastic versions?

    Thank you!

    This is an excellent value. I bought the value pack when it first came out and never regretted it. It has the only version of an MP Bombshell with a chest color changing gimmick, IIRC. I never felt the need to replace these with any of the other MP offerings.

    Mine just dropped into my POL yesterday. I am so excited to get the collector's edition set at that price! :) 

    This is very encouraging to hear. Thank you. :)

    Heya folks. Chimungmung had a May deal on these guys so I picked up the collector's edition for like 140. Already had the original set but I don't need em anymore. If anyone wants my normal edition with the color change grey/purple bombshell and solid colored yellow parts and no diecast for 100 bucks shipped shoot me an email.

    While this thread is bumped, can someone clarify which versions do / do not have Diecast?

    (Thanks)

    The Collector's Edition with the chrome and translucent amber chest plates have the die cast. The Value Pack with the solid yellow chests do not have diecast parts from what I understand.

    I hope I got enough money to get them but I think I am going to buy their gears and swerve for this month.

    I now have all three sets of Badcube bugs. I love these guys and would kill for some repaints.

    Thanks! I stumbled into this thread and have thought about the collector's set for a while. At this price, I couldn't resist.

    Damn. I just ran out of spending money for this paycheck. Hope they don't run out too soon.

    Also, clearance on a pre-order item? o_O
