    Lotus wanted me to share his new set of Insecticons.He wanted the more cartoon look for his set so that's what I did.The grey on Bombshell is darker because we both felt that it looked better and also made the paint on his chest stand out more.There is also a G1 sticker set waiting for his applications as well.

    He was so excited with the end result that he couldn't wait for me to post these guys and share them with all of you.So go ahead and let him know what you think about his Insecticons.

    DAMN! NICE JOB!!! The insecticons they way they were MEANT to be! I can't wait to see updated pix after you get your stickers, that will really make these guys. I've always wanted to re-do these 3 along with the other insecticons, painting them the same black, purple, and yellow so they all matched as a group. The only thing I would have done differently, and this is just my personal preference, I would have kept Bombshells chest purple. They grey does look good on him but I think the purple would have made him match a little better with Shrapnel and Kickback. None the less they still look fantastic!

    Oh good he can be 3-bugs less jealous now :p 

    I love how these turned out the "Animation" look is STELLAR! I prefer the "toy look" you gave mine, but these are really sweet!

    Quick, somebody commission a Daiclone/E-Hobby/Clone set before I get tempted ;)

    You know, I honestly feel like something's missing without the chrome there. That may just be me. Besides, if it's what was asked for in the commission, then I can't complain.

    What I really can't complain about though is the construction. Another mighty fine job on these guys for your... second? Third set of Insecticons?

    What an understatement. I'm freaking ecstatic!!!!! Thanks a lot Rafe, they're just absolutely beautiful. And it's a great feeling to have them shared with everyone else to see. Hopefully, you'll get some more commission love, bro!!!

    LOL but I think they're hooked on Energon Energon! "Weakling humans too tough for you, for you?!"

    Yeah we had a discussion whether to make it purple or grey. But since I wanted to stick the original toon look, rumble619 made it a dark grey. I kinda strayed from my original wants, but he put me back in line! Besides, if ptitvite did it, then I'm sold. :thumb 

    So do I. :D 

    And I will love them more when they get here!!!

    Can't wait to see yours bro! I think my new Insecticons will be minions to your Fallen. :ev: 

    Thanks D/L, I'm really glad you love them! That means a lot. Good, you have the toy look, I have the toon look! The rivalry burns brighter.....

    Sweet. This makes me happy to see rumble619 get some love.

    Thanks dude! Uh, it's actually pretty chromey. Not Henkei chromey but some shine there! I'm sure rumble619 will get back to you in more specific regards to that.


    Thanks for all the positive comments everyone! I'm really honoured and proud to commission these guys and am really happy you guys like them. Sharing some TF joy is some of the best feeling in the world. All credit goes to rumble619, he's been such a fantastic guy to work with and this has been an incredible ride. No doubt will I look to work with him again. I highly recommend him for his Insecticons at least, so get yours now! :D

    Man I just checked out your tutorials on Bombshell and Shrapnel and you did an awesome job on those. They seem really easy to follow, I'm almost tempted to try them myself with the exception of the epoxy stuff. Maybe I'll give Shrapnel a shot and send Bombshell and Kickback to you. When are you gonna finished the Kickback tutorial anyway?

    Rumble, imo, you are still, the KING of Insecticon customizers.

    Exactly the right aesthetics :thumbs2:

    Gotta really agree with you there. I've been working on making some of these guys all weekend and I've checked EVERY thread involving insecticons and I can't find a better recipe for the classic look that I'm going for. I have Shrapnel and Kickback completely modded they just need paint but I'll wait until I can figure Bombshell out entirely.

    Also gotta just bring up thos great tutorials once again. You really have to just get in there and try them. I'd say Shrapnel was the easiest and best way to help build my confidence to go the whole way with doing these guys.

    Thanks a ton Rumble619! I feel like I'm learning so much just from your work
