    Neat. I wonder what scale they'll be in.

    Ooh, Deluxe Insecticons maybe?

    Doesn't quite match any prior Insecticon design, but they might not be going for the full Masterpiece treatment here (like the liberties they took with their Triple Changers). Venom is probably closest (needs wings, though).

    Some people on weibo said it could be a Menasor's accessory...

    Reminds me of Venom.
    Would be cool to get another 3p version of the Deluxe Insecticons.

    There seem to be two peg holes, so there might be something missing. However, TBH this looks a bit more like Barrage, just with his insect horns removed. (Venom's tail end was more of a stinger, and he didn't have two antennae.)

    More Insecticons you say? This has definitely piqued my interest.

    Maybe one of the Deluxes???

    Barrage. maybe? but idk since Barrage is actually a Rhino Beetle.

    No way it's Venom, since Venom's alt mode is a Cicada. (loudest most annoying flying bug on earth)

    It's not Chop Shop since his Alt Mode is a Stag Beetle.

    This alt. mode on the Photo looks more like a Stink Bug

    Planet X’s Insecticons and Mayhem Mechanics’ Trash Torquers already had my eye, and the bugs keeps on coming!

    And, they’ve rarely stank much, but sometimes I am really sick and tired of all the shield bugs that run in from the rain and snow and what not! xP

    Yeah, the ones around me generally don't stink unless you smash them. Which, you know...can't blame em for extending that kind of postmortem middle-finger.

    As for this guy....the lightning bug had eight legs in the cartoon, but from the top, this figure looks closer to that guy than anything else I can think of.

    "WHAT IS THIS?"

    Most likely something over-priced.
