    This is just a quick shot of the idea we have for Kickback.Just got him last night and got to work on him this morning.

    Pretty much figured out the wings using the existing mounting points for his stock wings.
    It's just a rough idea for the prototype for our add on kit.

    I also removed the side pieces on his legs and mis-transformed his shoulders to give him a thinner appearance.The reason being is that to me this mold screams Ransack more than it does Kickback as it comes and I'm currently working on a Ransack so I wanted to differentiate the 2 as much as possible in both modes.

    Still working out some details for the bug mode so I'll have those pics up soon.

    The larger head looks much better. And I know exactly what details you're talking about for the bug mode, I flipped the same parts and see they're not compatible in both modes. Any word on when all three of these kits will be available?

    Thanks you guys.Like I said still got some work to go then it's off to spoonman so he can work his magic.


    I liked the kibble as well but like I said,it looks alot more like Ransacks legs then Kickback and since I'm building a Ransack I had to try and make him look more like Kickback.

    Here's a pic of Ransack

    That would be great. I am definitely wanting the add on kits for the three of them. I just painted some of the blades for the others and Backfierys wings a nice silver leaf, and they really pop.

    This set is looking good, while I know it won't be chrome that is not that big of a deal to me. However I hoping the price is cheaper than buying a TRU Insecticon set otherwise I'll skip it and get that instead.
