    Hasbro, if you're reading this, I would buy three of those without hesitation.

    Thank you :D . As I figured the black loses a lot in pictures, I will be smoothing out the yellow and adding silver/chrome highlights to the body and the wings will be all chrome ala Kickback.

    A whole slew of these colored in the insection theme would make a perfect IDW swarm. Sucks my area had little to none of these.

    Couldn't be bothered to buy him in stock colors....but I suspect I wouldn't be able to resist him looking like this...

    Great job!

    Yeah Mister Gone! That looks sharp! I can't wait to see what happens to the overall look of the figure once you do the wings.
    That's hot man.

    Wow, I found this guy burried at home. Added some silver (the wings suck as I don't have any silver paint left) I will be touching him up more later and adding the all important red eyes in bug mode.

    Yeah I know, I pakced him away intending to finish him and he got forgot until this week. Marshall's/TJMaxx seems to be a good place to find him still.

    Thank you :D
