    Good call on the design choices. They ended up looking great.

    Wow those turned out great man! I LOVE the weapons on Bombshell. Shrapnel really fits everything you chose for him too. Awesome work man!

    [So do you now have a BTA Alert in pieces now? If so, pm me! :lol ]

    Nice try. No I used all the white limbs from Ricochet to put him back together. I actually like him better now and I'm thinking about adding some paint and calling him Prowl, but I already have a Prowl so I don't know what to do really.

    Keep checking back cuz I just finished all my Stunticons with a Deadend from Rumble, which I believe is the first DE ever from that mold. I just gotta finish taking pics

    Yeah I like Bombshell the best. I've always liked WJ's head on the Black Corvette and when I decided to commit to doing the trio he was the first on my to do list. After I finished him I decided to get the G1 gun tips and that just made him all the more better.

    I was wondering though should I cut off one of the gun barrels on his arms to even it out a bit?

    Hehe, the worst you could do was tell me "no." :lol 

    Any chance of seeing photos of your police Impreza at this stage? I think it would be cool for you to make a fan character of him :) 

    I can't wait to see your Stunticons. :thumb

    If you wanna get trick with it, why not cut both of them off, and just use one on each arm like you said, but center the one you keep....all you would need is a saw of some type, and glue....follow me?.....

    I think that would look slick!!

    You know the more I think about it the more I think you're on to something. I'll give it a try and post updates soon.

    I think Bombshell's my favorite, but they're all pretty cool. I was wondering if there was something you could use to emulate Shrapnel's pincers, but there really isn't anything that comes to mind. The heads all look perfect. Question - If you used Dead End for Kickback, why did it need Sideswipe arms? Weren't they the same, and you had to paint them anyway?

    I used KO Sideswipe arms, which came grey and black(same as the original I guess) but Deadends arms are all red with some black. The Sideswipe arms on him don't require paint and if you check my Stunticon thread you'll notice I used the red arms on the KO Sideswipe to create Wildrider again no paint requied :thumb

    Thanks man! I appreciate the comment.

    I know I've seen some other Alt Insecticons that I would personally say are awesomer. I definitely think mine are some of the easiest ones to make that capture the desired character essence though. I love the way they came out
