    From day one when I saw the FP insects I knew I was going to do the deluxe Insecticons(Chopshop,Ransack,Barrage) from them because to me they resemble them more then the original 3(Shrapnel,Bombshell,Kickback).I had planned on just a head swap and some paint but after my Shrapnel I knew I had to do more tho them to differentiate them as much as possible but without totally messing up the base mold.

    So I took the most iconic parts from Chopshop(minus the pincers because I never like the original ones).I used his head,chest,insect legs.I used the tip of his feet and attached them to the TS feet and then filled them in with apoxie sculpt to give him different looking feet.I also left his black shoulder parts rotated for bug mode so that he wouldn't have the outer black shoulder pad looking parts up by his head.

    Please keep in mind that this is a wip and I still have a lot of work to go like squaring of his shoulders and filling in gaps.

    Thanks for looking.
    Alt pics to come as soon as the apoxie dries

    Damn! That's what I was planning as well.
    Either way, excellent start, there. It's good to see the deluxe insecticons getting some love!
