    About the pumpkin pic... I swear they did this themselves. I just left the room for a second and they turned the pumpkin into a base.

    Anyway, this project is about three years in the making. The impressive part is that these are mainly NOT 3D prints. Here's how it happened:

    1) Jarrod scratch built all the insect modes for Bombshell and Shrapnel. Like, holly cow, they're like Takara-quality.

    2) I recast the torsos of all the robot modes in resin from G1 Decoys.

    3) I designed the arms and some heads as 3D models and had them printed - thanks to Venksta for some technical help.

    4) Kickback's wings and bug legs are laser cut styrene. Neat.

    5) The rest of Kickback's bug mode is a decoy torso recast and a kitbashed Minicon.

    The deluxe Insecticons are Venksta's work, and were previously shown.

    What do ya think??

    I'm glad they don't transform, otherwise I'd have a heart-attack and uncontrollable lust! :p

    kind of makes me wish i was back into wst figs but still glad i sold them all, and am happy with collection just the classics (generations, united etc..)
    anyway, fantastic work, looks great
    would love to see a pic of all the insecticons standing next to each other,
    your wst collection must be huge by now,
    also casanova has a wst brawn prototype (dont know what he ended up doing with that one, it was a commission by me but i had to opt out due to money and job issues)

    whats the next wst up your sleeve??

    *jaw hits the floor* If you ever want to sell a complete set of all 7 (or 14, I guess, in this case), I will simply have to say "yes" as this board's self-proclaimed premiere Insecticon collector and resident insect fanatic, in general. Wow.

    Are any of these for sale? I would pay a good price for the set of three.
