    I went with the badcube kickback. He looks great with the other two, and his shoulder connections do not make me nervous.

    I'm very happy because Badcube sent me replacement parts for my broken Hypno bug legs :)  I was a little worried because they said they weren't producing parts for this figure anymore, but they came through for me anyway.

    My only complaint is that they got my name wrong. It's "Louise", not "Louis" :lol  This seems to happen to me a lot...

    I'd love to see some comparison shots with some classics sized toys. I'm considering these to replace my Fansproject Insecticons.

    I'm glad you got your replacement parts. And them getting your name wrong is funny.

    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.

    Maybe they still will since these are being reissued?

    At $140.00, I couldn't resist. My '84 G1 Decepticons Masterpiece collection is officially complete.
