    It was suggested that we take a poll to see what deco is the most popular for the upcoming War Bugs by Fans Project. Vote and let the world know what you think!

    Where's the poll?

    My vote would be for unique characters. Something fresh and exciting. Something other than what has already been released color-wise...

    Shrapnel as Strika, Bombshell as Quake, Kickback as Needle Nose, all have pirple elements so folks could still use them as G1 Insecticons if they wished.

    G1 Black and purple ftw. Absolutely no interest in putting them in non-fiction colors "just because". I look at them as Cybertronian versions of the Insecticons, so I'd like to put them on my Cybertronian cons shelf.

    I'm passing on these entirely just because I've got no problem with the bugs they made already. I just don't see a place for them on my shelves.

    But if I DID get them, I'd want the ol' purple/black/yellow color scheme, ala "the swarm".

    A different deco would make the most sense. It'll make them even more distinct from the originals as well as the retooled deluxe versions. I like them, but I just don't want them to boast the same color scheme as the initial set. And I say this despite my love of black and purple color schemes. I voted for "Something Else." However, I wouldn't be averse to a Diaclone scheme as it still fits my subjective criteria of deco variety.

    Diaclone colors. Just so we can have every possible recolor of these molds on the same shelf.

    Individual colors unrelated to either of the two insecticon groups.
    I thought that was the idea, maybe I was wrong.
    I'll probably won't be buying them if they come in insecticon decos.

    Black and purple of bust.

    Who am I kidding? This is FP, I would buy these in G2 colours. But I do hope they are their G1 colours. Like TJ, to me, these are pre earth Cybertronian modes (al la WWI not WfC/FoC)

    Torn between the Diaclone colours and the Strika paint job, I definitely think something more interesting than G1 colours would convince me to buy these for a third time.

    New colours.

    I'd accept Diaclone colours, but new ones are the way to go

    I would prefer Diaclone colors. But looking at the poll numbers, if they go Diaclone they should make the new vehicle parts in colors that can work with the original purple and black team so people do have that option. It would be even better if the bug parts from the originals could match with the main bodies of the Warbugs.

    You know, the original three Seekers colors would also be fun.

    I actually really like that if we aren't going to get black and purple all around... Good call!

    New colors. The Warbugs should standout from the original FP trio. I'd like to see them flat military colors yusing tones of green, brown, sand, and ochre.

    The diaclone colors aren't bad either. The red and black combo is pretty sharp.

    I feel like these guys deserve their own original decos. They aren't insects anymore, nor do they resemble them, so I don't know why I'd want them in any kind of Insecticon colors any more than I'd want them in Dinobot colors lol.
