    Shrapnel is a rad design and even though I don't want figures for his Insecticon brethren, I do want him. And I never upgraded to any of the 3P Insecticons from FansToys or BadCube, in part because I want him as big as Bumblebee, that's where I think his height should be, and the others are too big. Plus I've really gotten to like this guy for what he is. He's a great little engine of nastyness.

    I had to get those iconic G1 pincers on him, and got a junker G1 to pull apart. Even the installed connecting rods that the pincers swivel on is taken from the G1 toy's arm blasters. And the G1's gun got a new handle to get held by this one's hands. Paint up the whole thing, silvers, no chrome please, and there ya go. Good fun and still my guy. I enjoy having the option of a G1 head and the more armored head, much like Thundershred's original head design but bigger.

    I still use these in my mostly Masterpiece collection, but I love mixing in weird things. The FP bugs have kinda been eclipsed by other Insecticons, but I still love this little nasty bugger.

    Lovely! Great use of the G1 bits to make this stand out!
