This thread reminds me of Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.
Alot of work has been put into this and Im glad your both still on the case, and i hope something can happen soon,
Otherwise a 3rd party company will jump on this seeing as there is demand,
Hell weve seen some new gun pics, so its possible.
Still waiting on these as well. my insectacons needs fixing.
Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Holidays, and continued success in your hard work.
Is this still happening???
I still want these. I already have the Maiden Japan guns. I would at least like the Shrapnel insect jaws and the Bombshell stinger. They have them both on shapeways but Im not into painting or sanding too much. I would gladly buy these sets and support you guys. But while this project is being put on the back burner, someone else might jump on it. I would consider taking it on soon before the oppurtunity is gone.
If your handy with small mods then consider the oversized KO insecticons and take the parts you need. This is Bombshell with a new head, stinger thing and gun:
Head needs painting tho.
yup indeed fairly easy to btw...
picked up 2nd set of KO Insects for this
Just annoyed that somehow my order of FP insecticon got lost during shipment
anyone know where they still can be bought for a good price?
And anyone know where I could order the oversized KO insecticons?
Is there any kind of ETA on these - there seems to be quite a lot of interest.
The recolour FP bugs gave us guns, but in black!
Now I wanna give all my FP bugs the goods;
mandibles & gun for not-Shrapnel
proboscis & gun for not-Bombshell
gun for not-Kickback
mandibles & gun for not-Chopshop (the blades from not-shrapnel, but colour matched would be OK)
proboscis & gun for not-Barrage (again the proboscis from not-Bombshell would do the job, but the colour isn't quite right)
not-Ransack looks good with the blades from not-Kickback but the gun isn't quite right
I hate to be a jerk, but I check out this thread every time someone resurrects it and wonder...why? Why are people still thinking this is going to happen. The original post went up about 16 months ago. It's not happening....sorry to burst everyone's bubble.
Hey, I could be wrong, but can we stop pretending that people's optimism isn't just denial at this point?
Well according to post #702 on this thread, it's still happening.
Come on get it in gear .... ;/ maybe get them together by botcon
I couldn't wait, so I Bought a beat up Shrapnel chopped it up, modded it, and attached it to Thundershred. The pincers just clip in place and are moveable.
Thanks for the great idea!
Did you have to mod the head to fit?
U do have to drill a hole but looks great!
Oohh ok, thank you!
I just bought some G1 insecticons to do this mod!
yeah, the head has to be drilled out and it just pops onto the neck ball joint.
To mod the pincers, once removed from g1 shrapnel, you will simply cut a notch into the circle post where the screw was. simply make the "O" look like a"C" go slow and dont cut away too much....it will pop on tightly....and once on, rotate smoothly.
