    And I don't mean classics. Who'd like the deluxe Insecticons released in a unified scheme like the other G1 Insecticons, whether black and purple or their own unique colorscheme?

    (First post/title is confusing) But, if you are talking about the G1 ones. I like them in all different "realistic" colors. Wouldn't really care for them in one scheme.

    I would like to see FP release their insecticons either in colors like the G1 Deluxe Insecticons, or Diaclone colors.

    God help us if Hasbro/Takara dive into the Insecticons, I would get a serious gang of them and Sharkticons. Gnaw would be worse for me than Wreck-gar. Where the hell are these 3rd party Gnaws anyhow? Seems like we got teased by two companies long ago with nothing coming to fruition. And yes I went off on a tangent.

    20 dollar @TRU insecticons sound way better to me - the fansproject ones are nice and all... but hell- a freaking 3fig boxed set for $45 Canadian would own all kinds of goodness.

    /shudders at armybuilder types if that ever happened

    I would love to see what the deluxe Insecticons would look like in the black/purple/yellow color scheme. That's a great idea.

    Black and purple in a unified color scheme sounds cool. I could be being unfair to you. I prefer the Deluxe Insecticons original colors. Something about their box art that makes it seem appealing to have them in their original colors.

    A seven bot team in uniform colors could work. Patterning the "chrome goes to mandibles, robot wings, upper legs, black to body, lower legs and feet, arms, purple to the upper body or limbs" can work. It's far better than the Diaclone colors I imagine.

    Isn't the topic moot as they are no takara molds?

    Curious question: Falling under the 1985 line, did the Deluxe Insecticons have die-cast like their trio counterparts?
    This is speculation and dreaming, not official. Quit jumping the gun.

    updated obscure insecticons like Chopshop/ Barrage and Venom only. We've got too many homages to the original three. so yeah.

    G1 Insecticons reissued in a common color scheme is an homage? And just how many homages to the original three are there? I can think of none.

    ^Fans Project Ninja-non-Insecticons. TRU and Takara re-releases, plus the Ehobby Diaclone color-scheme. It would be nice to get updated modern Classic ones, but IMHO they've been given more than enough spotlight. There have been loads of homages to Bombshell , Kickback and Sharapnel in these past couple of years. I personally want to build a troop based on other Insecticons like the ones I just mentioned.

    Since when are reissues considered homages in this fandom? And I'm not talking about third party figures.

    Regardless this about the deluxe Insecticons getting a collective color scheme, not new figures of Shrapnel, Bombshell and Kickback.

    Again, your first post and title arn't too clear I don't think (and by the replies, neither do others). Deluxe Insecticons arn't exactly at the top of anyone's list right now and I could care less. There are better recolors they could focus on.

    I think it's pretty clear what the post says and obvious said posts were made by people that didn't bother to read before posting.

    This. I've been thinking. If the Insecticon Trio have blatant cockpit chests with clear yellow decoes and the Deluxe Insecticons have no existing design on them, then the Deluxe Insecticons will omit one deco color from them due to the template. So it narrows down to Black, Purple, and Chrome.
