    Excellent job on these, bro! I really dig what you've done.

    My only complaint is that you didn't post what you did to them and what you used for them (such as 'bots and parts). So get to it! ;)  I'd like to know (might even attempt some of my own someday).

    You also need to rename your thread to something like "Classics Insecticons". It will get more views and let people know more about what is inside.

    Keep up the great work!

    energon skyblast as bombshell with a bit of fileing and remoulded head, cybertron clocker with lego bionicle parts remolded and glued to it and cybertron breakdown with bionicle wings and remolded arms(not happy with the wings but it was the best i could do with my inexperience)

    Wow... innovative use of some deadwood figures! These look great, and I love the small scale and proportions that they would have next to other figures... it seems just right! And the Bionicle parts work surprisingly well!

    My only complaint (very petty) is that Kickback and Shrapnel need some more legs in bug mode.

    Great first attempt! Full marks! :)

    These are some awsome customs!To me ,they have more of an "upgraded technology" look instead of WW which more Gn.1 characters need,(just my opinion,not trying to start another "old school" war because I'm an 80's kid myself).

    That is some properly inventive stuff, and admirably executed to boot! Top class.
    An excellent start to your kitbashing career - we're clearly gonna have to keep an eye on you! ;)
