    The DX Insecticons were originally from a Takatoku line called Beetras.

    Takatoku went bust however, and Bandai aquired their molds.

    Hasbro in turn licensed the molds from Bandai.


    The molds for Jetfire, Whirl and Roadbuster also originated from Takatoku.

    I have been trying to find Takatoku's Roadbuster and Insecticons forever! I missed out when Roadbuster appeared often on Ebay back in the day. I thought I bought him once and I got jacked when the 1/2 sized version showed up. I was very angry.
