    I can’t wait for a full set of seven Insecticons. The original Barricade was one of my favourite Decepticons. I’m glad I caved and bought the Worlds Collide set.

    I\'m a huge fan of the Deluxe Insecticons, and these two are pretty awesome.

    Diaclone repaint, Insection trio colors repaint like someone suggested earlier in the thread

    Both would be great for troop builder packs

    I think I'd be up for that. I'm more fond of these bugs than I thought I'd be, especially after I finally completed the original trio. I 'shopped them up in Diaclone colors a few months ago for fun:

    Looking forward to whenever these bugs arrive in my home. The rest of the Insecticons sit on a shelf hanging on my monitor, but I\'ll probably have to find somewhere else for them to be when I get a total of 6. I\'m not familiar with more than the original 3, and Kickback has always been my favorite, but I wound up with a copy of Ransack, so I figured I\'d grab these two as well.

    But can anyone tell me what the faction symbol on Breakdown is supposed to be?

    I'll still get them to support the designers. They done a great job on what they had to work with. But these will not go on my G1 shelf-

    Looks dope

    I could see these packs:

    Insecticon 3-pack (SS86-style cartoon-colored repaints of the main trip)
    Insecticon Clones 3-pack (Salvo, Shothole, and Zaptrap)
    Insection Clones 4-pack (Diaclone-colored versions of the Deluxe Insecticons as an homage to the back-of-the-box mural from ‘85)
    Insections Swarm 7-pack (minor repaints of all 7 to be more screen-accurate)
    Insection Attack 4-pack (repaints of the Deluxe Insecticons in the main trio’s colors to homage their MLP x TF color schemes)

    It’s the symbol for the Mayhem terrorist group in the second IDW continuity (both IDW continuities reimagined the Mayhem Attack Squad as a terrorist cell simply called Mayhem) amalgamating elements of its three leaders (Octopunch, Skullgrin, and Submarauder)

    They’re using the symbol for this subline

    Well these are looking a lot better than expected. Especially Windsweeper.

    Not sure if this was already posted as I couldn't find it but the Amazon sets now show releasing June 7th. My order currently says July 22nd though.

    Admittedly being pedantic but the deluxe Insecticons were Armored Insect Core Beetras toys, not Diaclone.

    Ransack just looked like a repainted Kickback. These two look great

    yes I know they’re still just remolded insecticons but they look much more like they should

    They could repaint Vernon in Yellow and call him Beet-Kunedo.

    That is very good news!
    If you have a window into Hasbro like that, could you ask about any possibility of Emirate Xaaron please?
    I've been waiting for him and Impactor since 1986, and amazingly we got Impactor, yet still no Xaaron.

    Toyhax will sort that out.

    I'm just trying to come to terms with his wings - he looks good in his own right but not sure the alt mode reminds me of Windsweeper. I was hoping they could alter them a tad.
