    Grandmother said this: "You are the bug who crawls on the path of heaven, ruler of all."

    Yeah, I'm doing this. This is Change Beetle. It is a Combiner Wars Bombshell repainted into the Kabuto Zecter from Kamen Rider Kabuto. The name Change Beetle comes from the belt's sounds when transforming into Rider form. I chose this over something including Zecter because Change Beetle makes me think of all those old knockoff bug Transfromers that had the word "change" forced into the name.

    PS Yes, if I had an extra Shrapnel, I would make the Gattack Zecter.

    I mentioned this elsewhere, I don't like the Hoppers and would only make them if I was making all Kabuto Riders (and they don't make a Legends Class bee/wasp, dragonfly, or scorpion). Might do a Showa Rider if I end up liking Kickback and he isn't a huge pain to get more of.
