    With the release of Titan Returns Legends Kickback, I finally could finish off this trio of Insecticons based on their pre-TF Diaclone colors (as well as an E-Hobby set of Insecticon "clones") that began with Botcon 2015 Zaptrap.

    EDIT: As wwoptimusprime notes they also homage the SG Insecticons, I forgot about that! Thanks!

    Some comparison shots, I also touched up the Hasbro Insecticons a little bit to be more cartoon accurate. They're using guns from Maidenjapan, originally meant for the Botcon 2012 Shattered Glass Junkions.

    Here's a Beetras Beet Gugal from Generations CW Chop Shop. If Hasbro/Takara ever makes Barrage and Ransack (and Venom damn it) remolds of the Legends Insecticons I will repaint them into their pre-TF Beetras colors as well!

    I hope Hastak releases a colour-coordinated boxed set of all three insecticons (with matching purples) and a diaCLONE set too. Are you going to pop Decepticon symbols on your customs?

    Ideally they shouldn't even have emblems because I'm using them in a Diaclone Classics display but since I have a bunch of figures there with emblems that I never removed there I guess I'll add some to make the Insecticons match. The E-Hobby set did have Decepticon sets on them so it wouldn't be unprecedented.

    Yes even though I have these figures and customs, I'd buy additional cohesive sets, why not since they are army troop builders!

    Since this thread was bumped today, i figure it's a good time to show my custom repaint of the unreleased pre-TF Beetras Beet Vadam Ransack (as seen in foreign catalogs). I was originally going to repaint Titans Return Kickback as Deluxe Insecticon Ransack but figured this obscure recolor would be less likely to be officially made.

    I'm honestly surprised three-packs of the various G1, Deluxe and Diaclone coloured versions haven't had an official release yet. They're obvious troop-builders.

    Nice work!

    This is an older picture, but it shows most of my Diaclone display. I'll post an updated group and individual shots of the repaints I've done in Radicons soon!
