    Having just seen the Prime episode Orion Pax Pt.2, I was wondering what the likly hood of us getting an Insecticon figure would. Would you buy it if they did?

    Bearing in mind that we've got a Wheeljack figue, despite the fact he's only been in one episode, Cliffjumper who's been dotted around in a handlful of episodes, and promo shots of the HotSHot (Bumblebe repaint) and the proto shots of Voyager Skyquake/Dreadwing, I think that there is definately a strong possiblity.

    Considering
    Another Insecticon is soon to be introduced
    I'd say it's likely.

    Almost certainly, since he's got an alternate mode and everything. At worst, it'll be a Cyberverse, but hopefully, we'll get a Deluxe too.

    If they don't have the decency to even give him a name, they sure as hell won't make a figure of him.

    I'm shocked we have people still saying this with all the fodder figures we've gotten.

    Yeah, but only because you can't go an episode without seeing at least one.

    Unless they shrink the Insecticon down in the furture episode
    An Insecticon toy needs to be Leader Class, maybe Voyager, but definitely not a deluxe.

    Hasbro already has an insect serving as their cash cow **cough**Bumblebee**cough**... they'll probably not waste time on this one...

    Do you really think we'll get anything bigger than a Deluxe?

    People will never stop expecting Hasbro to give a shit about scale.

    Maybe they did a bit, in Animated... and even then, Lugnut was a dwarf.
