    Okay, so I'm kinda on the fence about the Fansproject Insecticons. I wasn't really big on the Crossfire figures for 2 reasons.

    1. I don't own that Bruiticus.
    2. The figures looks good, but I personally didn't like how small they were. Otherwise they are perfect stand alone figures as Classics Swindle and Blastoff (also I'm hoping, and this won't happen I know, but maybe one day we'll get a company who will do Combaticons that will integrate somehow with 2.0 Onslaught...pipe dream I know).

    Now my qualms with the insecticons is not their size, they are actually good size, but the head sculpts aren't quite right. Am I just being too picky? They do look awesome, but I want the headsculpts more accurate. SOMEONE HELP ME!!! Oh...also, where can I buy a pin punch and how much are they/what size do I need?

    What's wrong about the headsculpts? I think they're alright.

    Well...Kickback and Shrapnel have actual mouths and both have a singular eye, where as these guys have neither...but, after thinking on this long and hard...I went ahead and preordered them. XD I just said to hell with it and decided that this is just a new take on the insecticons, which is cool considering that if you actually accept the fact that they made them into ninjas, their headsculpts work great. Nows I needs some pin punch info peeps. HELP HELP!!!

    You should be able to find a pin punch set at any store that carries tools. I got my set at Fred Meyer, a local Kroger chain.

    This is my exact reason why I've still been holding out to order them. I love the bodies and bugs. But the robot heads are overwhelming... MEH.

    I like the headsculpts. They probably have faceplates to A. avoid copyright issues as much as possible and/or B. make them look more like ninjas

    I already pre-ordered Thundershred/Shrapnel. I'm not very interested in Bombshell (the bland grey and metal chains clash too much, and I don't like his overall robot design as much), but I might get Backfiery/Kickback.

    I don;t mind the new headsculpts because the Insecticons have gone Ninja.

    They have a pic with all three of them side by side and they look so dark, mysterious and menacing.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Ebay:
    Ninja Theme, Reimagining, and FP likes to keep away from directly infringing on any designs.

    You can dislike it, but I personally don't see the big deal.
