    I know it sounds crazy, but has anyone thought of repurposing/modding slightly Crankcase to make him something of a Movie Insecticon? Those pincers on his back really get me thinking Shrapnel. He just really would need a head retooling, a slightly different paint job, and maybe a different weapon to pull it off. What do you guys think?

    The only problem is that, well, he wouldn't look like a insect. He's got toed feet and clawed hands, but an otherwise humanoid body. He looks like some sort of wild man than an insect.

    It definitely works. In fact, I've got a whole Movie-verse Insecticon faction going:
    • '07 Dropkick
    • RotF Sideways
    • HftD Insecticon
    • DotM Crankcase
    They really look nice as a group.

    I was very disappointed when I found out he wasn't Shrapnel. In Insecticon colours with a different head, he could look really cool. I'd buy it. As for Dropkick, great figure, highly underrated.
