    Added articulation and paint to bring these guys into the 21st century. The Insecticons were my favorite transformers as a kid, so I thought I'd give them some updates and love.

    Kickback has added articulation in his shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, waist, thighs, knees, and head.

    thanks for putting up the comparison pics. i like the paint changes the most on this guy, but i think the hands are too big. overall, 9.5, it looks like a tough bash and you did them pretty fast.

    Another great one. That bug shot just made me think maybe the small front arms should have been attached to the soulder area instead of the forearm so it would fit the original bug style like the legs do

    These are awesome, perfect proportions on all of 'em. Kickback was always my favorite in the cartoon, I loved how he repeated everything everything...

    Thanks!

    ---> info@frenzyrumble.com ;) 

    Thanks. I agree about the hands, but feel they lend to the cartoony aesthetic. I am out of hands, which doesn't help...

    Thanks.

    I originally had those up on the upper arms, but in alt mode, they bring the front of the grasshopper up to high. the bend in the elbow allows me to push down the front end in alt mode. Thanks!

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks, they are from the 25th commemorative set (TRU)

    Thanks!!!

    Kickback is easily my favorite Insecticon. Awesome work as always, Mike.
