    Isn't there another main weapon? Even if you don't like it or think its pointless, you should still include it in your review.....right?

    I've been holding off on most of the FOC stuff, but this guy looks great. I hope they make the other two Insecticons, though.

    Not sure about Kickback, but Magnus looks sweet.

    Actually, someone just pointed out that it resembles an in-game weapon. I forgot about the gear shredder weapon so I'm far less critical about this now.

    His bug mode issues are his abdomen doesn't always stay pegged together. Insect legs are a bit of a stretch and insect mode is basically unposable.

    It's the Gear Shredder from Fall of Cybertron.

    All in all...not bad, not bad. I usually **HATE** Insecticons too, but this one looks great. Unfortunately I'm sticking with my Fansproject Insecticons in this case. At least they're something that I can dig, rather than just a damned robot bug.

    Well that makes sense. I haven't played FOC yet. It's cool they are packing in real game guns with the figures. Kickback looks ok, but dayum Starscream and Magnus look cheap as hell.

    What's with these oversized weapons? They look dumb.

    The more I see, the more I want it. I just have a bad feeling the annoying army-builders will clear it out like they did with the Vehicons at first.

    Really like the weapon, actually. It isn't a standard sword or gun, which is innovative.
    Does it mount somewhere in alt mode?

    i think the legs in insect mode have to be swung around so they face the opposite way. you would loose one joint but atleast you would be able to make the feet rest flat on the ground.

    He looks good. He's going right in with my huge collection of Insect Decepticons and Predacons(Or...The Swarm! Ow!).:)

    I want to agree with you, but there's this:
    [​IMG]

    So, this is actually accurate to the game...
    [​IMG]

    The toes just need to be articulated to replicate the in-flight position & they already have the joints molded in!

    Still, I think the way you described would actually look better...

    EDIT: or so I thought...
    [​IMG]

    Then again-
    Maybe if the teal piece in the prototype pic was straightened out in line with the lower leg...

    Boy, the toy grasshopper sure is a lot less majestic than the game/art grasshopper.
    Though I must commend HasTak on managing to make a transforming figure out of such a cheaty design.

    Because he needed to be able to pass as a jet-class in multiplayer.

    God, he looks great. I really can't wait for him!
