    Can’t really find too many differences. No real paint differences that I can tell, but I just noticed the yellow chest piece is a little darker on the new grey one. Maybe they are matching the yellow chests between the bugs more.

    Anyone who ordered from bombusbee use (E)(OH) shipping? Trying to figure out what service that is to track it on 17 track.

    Original head penis was plastic and there were reports of breakage so FT included a diecast head penis with the next insecticon release (Shrapnel I believe). I do remember the waist swivel being extremely tight and had to lube mine.

    I just watched Windcharger's Charged News. He said the new release has a fix that eliminated the sticking out screw section under the arm. I have the first release and there's no lump to remove. What's going on?

    He messed that up in the video. On the original there’s nothing under the armpit and the yellow shoulder section moves freely. On the new one there’s a notch you pull out to rotate the yellow section in/out of bug mode then close the latch again. It just secures the shoulders in position.

    I see, thanks. It seems a pointless change to me, it's not like that part flops around.

    This may be a dumb idea but, has anyone ever tried to paint the chest of the FT-12T? I opted to get purple over Grey and have been considering it.

    So I went to pay my Bombusbee shipping for Mercenary and their shipping charge is ~40% higher for Mercenary than Grenadier. I would have thought the boxes are the same size or have I missed something?

    Since you said it yourself, yes; it would be pretty dumb methinks.

    Please don’t paint a very pricey and decently rare collectible. Either trade with someone who has the grey chest and pay the difference, or try to snag a grey chested one.

    Yeah it's dodgy. It's called 4D Price Adjustment.

    Yeah, first shipping for me was $15, then $20 for Mercenary, seems like I can predict $25 for the last one.

    Yep. I noticed the same thing. Bombusbee be creeping up with those Insecticons shipping charges. Bombshell was $25 for Express to US... now Shrapnel is $32 for Express to US for about the same size/weight box... hmmm.

    I'm guessing Kickback will be the most expensive to ship?

    Not a good way to build up return business.
