    Name: Buckshot
    Faction: Decepticons
    Subgroup: Insecticon
    Alt mode: Tick
    Motto: Hit them hard and take what you want.

    Made from a knock-off Hot Spot, a bunch of other TF rip offs, and a few miscellaneous toys.

    Help me think of a good name for this "bottom-feeding brute".

    I'm thinking he needs a bigger chin. You could also call him Rocky.

    If you want an oldschool G1 sounding name, you have 2 directions to go in... the original Insecticons had names that referred to military ordinance (Kickback, Bombshell, Shrapnel), but also reflected special abilities each had.

    The Deluxe Insecticons all had names that reflected their personalities (which means you'd have to give this guy one first).

    Bloodlust (as mentioned earlier) isn't bad, but it sounds a bit over-dramatic.

    Boresight?
    Smoothbore?
    Hollowpoint?
    Squib?
    Buckshot? (if he's a deer tick?)

    I like this guy's bug mode quite a bit. The G1 base of the robot mode leaves him a little primitive in the articulation category, but I like him. I like that you went for the classic purple/black colour scheme. :)

    Bloodsucker. Hemo Goblin (a Xevoz name that never never ceases to amuse me).

    What about Gorge for a name? If you've ever seen a swollen tick, you know they're greedy bastards.

    Looks like an interesting mold, and good job giving it the correct number of legs. (Though that means he doesn't quite fit as an Insecticon. ;-) )
