    I have always wanted to revive the G1 insecticons into articulated form ,so I decided to part my collection into this kitbash .Many famous kitbashers have attempt on this so I have a great chance to learn from them and revive my own insecticons into live .Started off with some articulated joints and it was kinda of fun during the process of making really enjoyed alot . My favourite character of all is shrapnel due to his ability to control other robots remote with his antennas.,took me quite awhile to complete this set on and off some period of time . I used very durable lacquer paint on its base coat and very reliable citadel paint on its detailing process .

    Here are some useful link

    Sweet; that yellow is damn vibrant!

    It's always interesting to see how different customisers articulate these. Other than Bombshell, can I ask whether the hands are detachable for the alt mode (hidden in the chest I presume)?

    I'm just finishing off some Shattered Glass Insecticons for a charity gig - although it feels a bit like sacrilege to paint these guess in anything other than purple, black and yellow.

    see why cant hasbro do something like this? i mean they re-released them, just take the mold and redo the arms and legs, if they did they would be almost perfect for classics.

    nice job too!

    The colors really pop on these and the articulation is well conceived. Good job!

    Fantastic pictures as well! I think this is the 4th or 5th time I've gone through this thread and looked at your photos! :)
