Insecticon12
KOtoys has posted another Hunt for the Decepticons Scout toy gallery. This time it is Insecticon. Insecticon is loosely modeled on the tiny insects sent to search for Sam during the finale of Revenge of the Fallen. He is due to be released in the second wave of hunt for the Decepticons Scouts alongside Breacher and Oil Pan. Check out our mirror of the images by clicking on the title of this story.

Seems decent enough, but I was never a big fan of insect-bots. Too many legs.

Some good detailing though.
Digilaut
Funny little guy. Seems his legs are way more stable than Scalpel's .
ORIO
In the immortal words of Mr. Horse, "no sir, I don't like it."
tarheels
It looks really bad.
Abrogate
It looks alright, but I doubt I'll buy it.

These pictures show off the fact that Breacher's knees work, though he looks really odd in that pose...
billcosby
Neat.

Some people feel all the Movieverse bots are insects.
grimlock1972
I might grab him but he is low priority
BScorpinok75
Looks ok, but he has lost his spot on my definetly want list.
Omega Charge
I like this little guy. He's win.

On my list to get for sure.
TRANS+CRAZY
I'm definitely going to get him, but he's going to stay in insect mode. Don't really like that robot mode much.
Smokescreen
He looks pretty creepy in insect mode. If I see him I'll get him.
a person
I like!
Thundercrackah
Damn, he is cool.
The bug mode especially.
More money for Hasbro!
BB Shockwave
Well, they could have done the robot mode arms better then leaving his two fore legs just there as arm. They could have made his arms interlockable like Animated Waspinator's.
MrByatis
He looks pretty cool, I will most likely get him
cheetorBWORG
I like the Robot head.

Me too. He looks like he has a big crazy grin on his face.

If I could spend money like a mofo I'd probably troop build these little guys. I like all the little mechanical detail on him. Very trippy.
LEADERS_MATRIX
Hmmm, Breacher is nice tho.........
Lucario Prime
Finally, the black sheep of the bunch.
starscream-99
Super pass on this one.
me!!
buy 5 of these + 5 skystalkers = you now have an army of 10 drones
Bumblebee92
Looks kind of like WAZZZZZZPINATOR
prowl26
the insect mode isn't half bad but the bot mode does nothing for me. Breacher on the other hand...
prime13
I can has Wazzzzpinator repaint?
moreprimeland
He looks way out of scale for a movie insecticon..not a big fan of the buggies anyway..
Probably will pass.. but it's pretty decent in bug mode
Insecticon
He looks pretty awesome
A good troop builder. I'll probably get a few.
DarthMagnificus
so that is supposed to represent the little bug that sam killed?

ok....so why make it a toy?

seems like the waste of a mold...
Kevin XI
WTF is that? Looks like a spider fly thing. Looks like a piece O' crap. Focus on the blue guy, he looks very nice, for a scout. I'll buy Breacher, I think he goes with Seaspray like Mindwipe/Skystalker.

Yes. Minus the little dish on it's back.

Because despite what people may say, the scene in the house was one of the cooler and more memorable parts of the movie. Plus, it was a movie character.

Not at all. They (Has/Tak)don't just randomly pick things to make and hope they sell. They make figures that will sell. Bugs are cool, Transformers are cool, and as established, the above scene was memorable and featured the little guy prominently.
artiepants
yikes. guess the law of averages says they couldn't knock EVERY scout out of the park.
chiptimus_prime
I disagree with Mr. Horse. Yessir, I DO like it! Since the first Transformer I ever bought was Insecticon Kickback I'm quite fond of this little bug. Might have to repaint a bunch of them black and purple.

Nicely done toy... but for me I just could never dig that whole Beast Wars aesthetic.

"Transforms from 6-legged Bug Monster to 2-legged Bug Monster!" Sorry, you need to try a little harder than that.

This thing has about as much Beast Wars asthetic in it as the movie designs have G1 asthetic.

Which is to say none.
Moy
This little guy has a robot mode? WhY? It looks bad-ass as insect form, that little mode is not necessary, or maybe it's a nod to the old Generation.
thedreaded1
It has a Beast Machines feel to it.
NCStarscream
This is one of the very few TFs to be previewed recently that I like less the more I see of it. That combined with Drift, Voyager Prime, and some others going up my wants list makes this guy a likely pass now.
TheBigMachine
No, no, no that just won't do. Please put out more scouts like Breacher please.
EmGo316
I'm not too crazy about him. He's on the maybe list of future purchases.

I dunno, I kinda disagree. This scene or character wasn't as memorable (to me) as Scrapper smashing that building with his chain claw thing.

But for the mold size choice it seems appropriate I guess. If Insecticon was a deluxe I'd totally say it was a waste of a mold.
rainningstorm
He looks cool, digging the insect mode, his four arms kind of reminds me of the facehugger.
[Wing_Saber-X]
Meh. Id prefer the Movie Scouts 2.0. Pass.

I think he was speaking more in terms of concept then visual asthetic. Though I'm sure he's not too keen on that either.

But yeah, this little guy is straight up movie-verse. So of course some fans are going be negative about it, cause he doesn't have a little Geewun puppet face.
shroobmaster
Really liking this lil' guy, hes very inspired and gives me good Beast Wars memories (ANIMAL HEAD IS CHEST)

Breacher and Insecticon shall be bought first sight.
x BlackMagnus x
Might have to troop build with this little guy.
Treadshot A1
As far as i see it, this guy's only got two purposes, one of which it shares with Breacher: Troop Building. It's basically perfect for building a set of evil drones.

The other purpose? Why, painting it white, of course! Add four lightsabers, and you're done. It would even technically be better than Hasbro's actual Grievous TF's.
Talyn781
Personally I like him

(and I love TreadshotA1's idea)
Dinobot Snarl
I'm soo getting that, it looks like a cybertronian beast! I'll buy two, same for hubcap!
Vector Squidma
The more I see of this guy the more I like him. Think I'll pick him up.
The_Black_Sheep
He could really have used some more vibrant colours rather than dull shades of brown & grey... *shakes head*

Yeah, I think I'll be leaving him on the shelf for someone else...
