Very cool. I'm definitely looking forward to owning this guy. Thanks for the pics and review, Sol!
i want this toy sooo bad...ive definately gotta pick this one up at retail asap. 'specially since hes shortpacked-one per case. the chase is on again! great looking toy hasbro!!
i need 1 for my son.
Really nice figure. I hope they do a FOC Deluxe Sharpshot (Sharpnel) and Hardshell (Bombshell) as well. It would be really nice to see the three of them together. I hope they do and I can't wait for this figure. Well, he is defiantly ready to bring some revenge to Grimlock and Snarl (if you know what I am talking about in the game)
Wow, he looks pretty good. And he comes with a gear shredder. I think I'll have to pick this up. Very good pics, btw. Thanks.
Very nice. Anyone else feel like aesthetically he fits in with Prime more than he does with FOC? I think it's the organic shapes and Vehicon-esque face.
I want one! I just hope Shrapnel and Bombshell also get figures made!
I'm going to like this one as much as I like his Fansproject counterpart if not more so
I'll probably pick him up if I come across him but I'm rather "meh" on the figure - I love the design and the colors are really nice but I'm disappointed by the proportions in robot mode and the relatively messy, incomprehensible look of his beast mode - at least the back half.
That being said, the Insecticons were always one of my favorite sub groups so it's kind of hard to resist them, even if I already have the awesome FP versions.
I dig it! I like the simplicity of the colouring and homage in shape to the G1 toy with the ability to fold up the regular robot hands into wings and use wing/claw as claw hands, I think it's a neat touch. I may buy every version of this that comes out, I hope they even do an ehobby version of Shot Hole to match that one
Ha bell at this point with the shelves look in my area we can expect to see this as a Ross exclusive, probably won't even make it to mass retail.
Looks very nice, I am sure some customs will be made from him for all 3 insecticons.
And a Deluxe Insecticon Ransack repaint for good measure
His grasshopper mode looks totally mis-transformed.
Something doesn't look right with his back legs.
Is this wave already out in stores? I can't tell because people talk like it is, but there was no announcement...
nice to see a positive spin on this bot. can wait to see him at retail
I know it at least hit HTS, I imagine some have already got theirs. Also I believe it came out in Asia (non-TakTom), so those probably came over via eBay.
If I buy this guy it'll be for the bot mold only. Sadly those Locust legs don't look right...(were they even transformed?)
They flip round and the shins pull out a bit, plus the feet rotate. That's literally as the instructions show it, there's a limit to how much you can alter that to get a different look.
I was initially really turned off by this guy but the more I see of him the more he becomes a definite buy. Weird, but I think this will be my classics Kickback.
