    Dont have the money to buy all 3 right now. I dont even know if they are worth it. I've watched review but that's not always a determining factor.

    I have many characters i'm a fan of, but I have always been a fan of Megatron, Dinobots (G1), & insecticons (G1).

    Which Fans Project Insecticon is the best? Or are they all worth buying!

    imo, they all are great,
    thundershred looks the most deadly with all the spikes (after getting stormbomb with the extra weapon)
    stormbomb is the most "solid" in both modes and almost perfectly g1 accurate
    backfirey is my favorite for some reason

    Backfiery without a doubt, IMO.
    The two others are good, but a little "meh". Can't really explain why though, maybe I just had too high expectations for the first two.

    Pretty much what Brr-icy said. My personal fave though is Stormbomb but that's alot to do with the character. Backfiery is just a neat, fun figure to sit, transform, and fiddle with...and comes with a shit ton of blades!

    Thundershred>Backfiery>Stormbomb.

    I love Thundershred just because he has a huge array of options in terms of weapons and kibble arrangement. He's also the only one (as far as I know) that can use 3mm clips. I have Breacher's gun on his forearm right now and it fits him pretty well.

    Backfiery is cool too, and I think his insect mode is the best. I like him slightly less than Thundershred though because of the fiddliness of his transformation and lack of weapons options.

    Stormbomb is my least favorite because I don't like his color scheme as much (I would have preferred the darker color scheme that his G1 cartoon model had). The posts his scythes go on don't work at all, especially for bug mode. This would have been the perfect chance for them to use more c-clips instead.

    I picked Stormbomb as the best. Although I like Thundershred and Stormbomb about equally, the initial QC issue with Thundershred puts it just a step below Stormbomb. While Backfiery is decent, I don't like it as much as the other two. The insect kibble, particularly the wings, gets in the way a lot more than on the others and the weapons aren't as impressive or versatile, IMO.

    Stormbomb > Backfiery > Thundershred.

    But they're all great though.

    I like Stormbomb the best. That's not saying much though, they're all really good.

    All 3 of them are good, but Stormbomb is my personal favorite, followed by Thundershred.

    Stormbomb

    That being said, it is like picking your favorite child. All are wonderful for their own reasons.

    Backfiery is far too pointy. Seriously, the knives hurt.

    Here is my take on the trio:

    Thundershred: Insect mode is good from the front, but I don't like the gap in his back half and his robot hands just stick out the back. Robot mode is great, looks like he is built for battle and nothing is going to stop him.

    Stormbomb: Insect mode is probably best of the three, although he stands on his 'knees'. Robot mode is great too, and the chain makes him look like he will kill you from a distance. Only down point is the scythes fall out of their mounts at a whim.

    Backfiery: Insect mode is good, although I wish his insect head covered his robot head or there was a way to fold down his robot head antenna. Robot mode is probably the best 'ninja' of the three. Slim, sleek and silent describe him, the one that will take you out without you ever knowing he was there.

    Each one has its pros and cons, but I like them all equally...and it's about impossible to just own one :D

    Stormbomb and Backfiery seem to be best but the three are epic.

    My votes for "Kickback", but "Bombshell" is a very close second. I wasn't as impressed with "Shrapnel" as I thought I was going to be.

    Stormbomb is easily the worst due to fiddle factor. His skirt and insect legs are annoying as hell to get where you want them. That and there is no place to store his chain unless you're creative. Though he's got the best insect mode of the bunch minus his front claws. I had much more fun with Thundershred and am debating on getting Backfiery or not.
