    What is up with the chest symbols on the not-insecticons. For anyone at Botcon, did those look like stickers or paint apps?

    I for one am not a fan, but I guess a little Decepticon sticker can go a long way.

    Here is the pic btw:[​IMG]

    I thought the stickers reflect their elements of fire wind and thunder?

    Well, especially considering that they were only Decepticons by formality & pretty much existed as their own clan, I think it's neat. However like you say, it's always possible to cover it up with your own sticker if that's what you prefer.

    I hope they are stickers, I wouldn't like to see black bits behind a clear background Decepticon sticker...

    I'm alright with the symbols. I'll find a nice spot for con symbols somewhere.

    Repeat after me...

    These are NOT "THE" insecticons. They're robots that turn into insects. They're different characters that exist within the Causality storyline that FP has. Therefore no decepticon symbols.

    I for one am very excited that they are NOT Decepticons. More like a robot ninja clan who do their own thing. How is that not awesome?

    As long as they are bad or evil I'm ok with it. It's not enough of a thing to complain about or care.

    I actually prefer it to con symbols, which cannot be used officially because that would begging for the Hasbro legal ninjas to come eff up everyone's day.

    As far as I'm concerned, they're Classics Insecticons and I'm shoehorning the Causality storyline into my imaginary updated G1 storyline.

    I doubt I'm the only one who has this point of view.

    Since these are prototypes, I will wait and see, but yeah I wasn't too keen on the generic symbols. I'd rather them be stickers included so we can decide whether to use them or not.

    I also asked about the plastic, because I wasn't digging the cheap shiny plastic, hopefully it will have the nice MATTE finish like other fansproject releases. With the solid paint app accents to compliment them.

    I for one will not be happy until they each where an enormous rice paddy hat like those mystic ninjas from TMNT.

    We have a winner!

    They're Classics Insecticons to me. Just because FP cannot market them as Insecticons doesn't mean that they didn't intend them to be Insecticons. I mean why color them the way they did?

    Oh and I will be replacing those logos with good ol Decepticon logos. Ooooh reeeeprolables!!....
