    The third Insecticon has arrived and is now kicking back in our gallery collection! (Please excuse the relative brevity of the post and writeup this time, busy IRL)

    I do wish the Legends would include accessories - fortunately Mindwipe was happy to donate his gun for a few pics.

    Yes, I'll likely be doing this with TR Kup at some point...

    At long last, the trio is complete.

    And they look beautiful together. Now that they've been made, I'd love to see Barrage, Ransack and Venom to go with the Chop Shop we already have, to have the full horde.

    Does anyone know from which Hasbro line that Shrapnel is?

    I cant find him anywhere :(  I got bombshell, kickback is on the way... They are a nice contrast to my Fanstoys set and hate to not have them complete :p .

    He's from Generations, came out in 2013/14 under the Thrilling 30 branding in a two pack with Reflector. He was called "Skrapnel" for trademark reasons.

    He's also been released in the Transformers Adventure line by Takara-Tomy

    Awesome. Took us year, but we finally have the Insecticons together at last. I am kinda only bothered by one thing- seeing Kickback, I now would love if Shrapnel and Bombshell had translucent chest windows too for little Diaclone, erm, Titan Master passengers.
    There are some small color differences in the yellow and purple shades, but not serious. Loving the design on Kickback and glad he got a proper grasshopper abdomen like his FoC toy. The G1 toy always looked weird without that. I do wonder - given how he is largely the same colors - whether Ransack will happen. Bombshell was not remolded to Barrage after all, but after Chop Shop I am hopeful. Given how the grasshopper head is no longer his real head, a new head mold is possible.

    This is the point where I regret not buying Generations Skrapnel years ago. Bombshell is still pretty affordable but Skrapnel costs as much as a voyager now. That's just not right.

    Legends Kickback is a great update on the character. Very nifty figure! Looking forward to seeing what Takara does with the mold later this year.

    They both have pros and cons, both have crappy arms. G1 is just weird in that regard and the new one has super long arms for no reason. Either way I'm just glad I can finally complete the trio. Hope Hasbro gets a chance to finish the deluxe Insecticons in this size too.

    I imagine we'll be seeing all 3 of these guys again someday in the future, in a boxed set or something. That would be Hasbro's opportunity to make all 3 of them have matching purples and yellows.

    the G1 had crappy arms but they at least looked somewhat okay imo

    Why the heck does Bombshell not match the other two?

    He is really out of place. Very simple compared to the other two.

    And I would be tempted as I like the molds but Bombshell just sticks out with his metallic purple.

    Pretty much what @SolFury said. You can find him online at sites like Amazon and Ebay but it's doubtful you'll find him for less than $25-$35 after shipping (unless you luck up at a toy fair or convention).

    Sooner or later Hasbro will likely release a Platinum set of the 3, so you could play the waiting game if current prices for the figure are too much.

    Up until Kickback was announced, Shrapnel sat on amazon for $11.
