    I decided it was finally time to get the Causality Ninja team.
    Beyond the usual issues with the claws on the first and the loose
    front leg claws/kamas/kusarigamas issue on the second. Anything
    else I should be warry of?

    You will not regret it at all. The only issue I had was one of 'Shrapnel's' blades snapped off when I was pulling it out of it's holder. BBTS replaced the blade and I ended up getting a replacment set anyway with 'Bombshell'. Other that that - no other problems, they look fantastic and are a nice addition to my classics TF collection.

    Watch out for a cracked/stressed piece of yellow plastic on Backfiery's back, where the insect legs are connected.

    Some of the pointy bits are extremely sharp. Don't stab yourself. :D 

    There's a custom in progress to make G1-styled upgrade kits for each of these guys, if you're into that idea look in the Radicons section.

    That custom's been in work for what feels like almost 3/4 of a year, right? I remember it being shown when we only had CA-03.

    they guys making that are having some quality control issues from my understanding. which is totally fine with me, cause i want a quality product which i know those guys are totally capable of. I mean they are moving faster than Igear's ironhide/ratchet.

    anywho, you definantly made the right desicion they are great representations of the the g1 bugs, and when these radicon upgrades come out they will be the perfect classics update to these characters (if you are in to that sort of thing)

    yes, I have been following it pretty closely too, until the last couple of months. I guess I am just waiting for that issues to be fixed.

    And yes lol they are moving faster than Ratchethide. But everyone's moving faster than Ratchethide. They are also moving faster than Vector Zeta.

    You will not regret it. I am thinking of buying a second set to use with the customs that are being created. The second set would be my MP versions.

    Yeah it's taking quite a while. But then it is just two guys in their spare time and they're having some trouble with air bubbles in the plastic or some such, last I heard.

    I'm hoping to do this myself soon, but am struggling with it because I really want to start buying Herc pieces.

    Unrelated question about the toys, but were the insecticons in the first season or second season of Transformers G1?
