    Story inspired by UNICRON-9's encounters ;) 

    Well I was watching some TV ... and all of a sudden I heard some munching sound, so then turned my head a noticed a strange creature eating my pizza... I wanted to scare it away, but went in some kind of frenzy and started attacking me :(  Then it transformed in a robot and told me it was in search of energon! It apparently lost it's friends, he told me there were 2 other companions...

    -STORY CONTINUES WITH INSECTICON BOMBSHELL-
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/362454-classics-insecticon-bombshell.html
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/367933-classics-insecticon-kickback.html

    finished Omega Supreme but paint is curing, so wanted a quick change to Energon Insecticon.... cuz resembles Bombshell to much :p 

    Bombshell will be made out of a second E.Insecticon but different ;) 
    Kickback still 0% no options or thoughts as of yet...

    There will be 2 WIP threads made for each... and then a final when all gets painted!!!
    (beware this is just a minor side project for fun)

    UPDATE2:
    Version 2 of Shrapnel, I think this one is better looking a little more organic

    UPDATE3:
    Version 3 Shrapnel + original head... suits me better :p 

    UPDATE3B:
    Added a digibash paintscheme... It can change along the way, but this will make the legs in botmode look yellow, but I can fix that by paint the underside of the lowerlegs black or purple, what do you guys think?

    UPDATE5:
    OK since I thought I was done with these, to start painting ... I went searching for some extra's :) 
    The reason for adding these weapons is that I might be making a Insecticon combiner!
    (+ they can be removed, so no harm is done by having some extra firepower right :D )

    UPDATE6:
    It's painted... WOW I really like how it turned out... detailing/touchups todo!
    (btw Bombshell is painted and still in pieces... Kickback weapon system is next!)

    UPDATE6B:
    Last teaser pic + details!

    UPDATE5:
    It's done I'm so friggin' proud of myself (just need some touch-ups!)


    (extra: WIP pics will follow, first need to do the GOOD stuff :p )

    The teeth in those jaws look scary, and not just in a fictional sense! :eek:  What are those things made from, anyway?

    This has actually just reminded me that I have three ROTF Insecticons I want to G-oneify, and I think I have a spare Scarem somewhere... :ev:

    TFMaster did an awesome custom when this bad boy came out. He put a minicon port on him and a peg on energon megatron and turned him into a drill weapon in G1 insecticon colors. Wish i could find the pics. Probably the first figure I ever altered too. If you open him up all you have to do is sever his 'spinal column' in order to seperate the neck and waist swivel LoL.

    Good luck! I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

    Dude, Shrapnel looks wicked. The jaws are fearsome looking and using them as a melee weapon of sorts is a cool idea.
