    holy crap that Waspinator pic looks awesome. My only concern, if Animated Waspinator is going to be close to his Beast Wars predecessor personality wise, he's going too look way to bad ass to be a convincing loser.

    The purple patches on his chest -- eyes in alt mode? -- make it look like he's wearing a bra...

    Nice, awesome artwork :) 

    Even though he's out I think this is still something very much worth sharing around.

    I agree. Besides, this makes him look even more pissed off, almost like Bumblebee is standing in front of him off-camera.

    G1 predecessor? Don't you mean Beast Wars? Because Shrapnel was a lot more bad ass than Waspinator.

    I would love to see all the TFA box art especially for the earlier releases.

    same hear, i'd love Soundwave's high resolution one!

    bout Waspinator, he looks fierce! Hope he's mix of his original form from Beast Wars with all his comedy and as Animated Desepticon hope he's badass and is as dangerous as other Decepticons

    Especially since that image was the one on the front that gets cut off. Nice to see what the whole piece looks like.

    Damn. Thread title confused me, thought maybe there was a pre-waspinator Wasp toy coming out (or at the least, at one time planned)

    Either way, badass.

    I love the idea of Bumblebee vs. Waspinator. Brilliant.

    It's a shame the figure isn't as Buff as this art.

    It'd be a bit nicer.

    I love him anyway though, nice, simple, and attractive transformer.

    I so hope he has the splitting jaw in the cartoon. That'd just be awesome.

    How did you get Shrapnel out of a G1 predecessor? Shrapnel was a beetle.

    Also, Waspinator is way more awesome than Shrapnel, but not badass.

    Sadly, if he was as buff as the art, his bug mode wouldn't look right. I think they found the right balance.

    I'm assuming he'll have the jaw... just kind of sad it's not on the toy. Of course, those little parts would break if you just looked at them wrong, so it would have been a bad choice for a kid's toy. Hopefully we'll see that in a custom soon. :D 

    I was wondering the same about Shrapnel. A Wikipedia search revealed that in one episode (after a head injury made him loopier than normal), he claimed to be G1 Shrapnel. That's probably where he's gotten confused. I highly doubt they ever meant to imply he was supposed to actually BE Shrapnel. :D

    I like that Waspinator is so mean looking in this series. They've made a super lame character into an awesome one.
