    I have around a dozen Revoltechs and have had no issues. NECA is a different story though... every one of those dang figures have to be modded or replaced.

    Even smaller? Methinks you want them for a WST collection.

    Okay, I don't think these cubes are sticky... I think they are a bit soft and eeeeever so slightly concave on the sides. This gives them a suction-cup ability against each other and other flat surfaces, but don't feel sticky to our rough and oily hands. I can press them against my KFC Energon Cubes and they hold.

    They probably have toddlers packaging them. Give my kid Teflon gloves and a celery stick and he'll find a way to make the whole room sticky. I think their pores secrete day-old barbecue sauce and syrup.

    Anyone here who has the set and doesn't care so much about blaster accessories?

    Would you be willing to part with Shrapnel's little pistol?

    I'd love to have two so that they plug into both his feet for some symmetry in bug mode.

    Damn! That pic may have just sold me on the set. I had no intention of buying them but they are too small not to fiddle with...

    Mine too.

    When I opened the box, one was turned upside so I thought it was the only one with a spure marking, didn't check the other two, wanted to transform the Insecticons, later checked and all three had markings.

    Got them and opened them.... 20190815_221340.jpg 20190815_221519.jpg 20190815_221818.jpg 20190815_225412.jpg

    They are pretty rad but they are almost too small. The comparison pic with FT Cyclonus, TW Jazz, and BC Insecticons, the scale is pretty spot on. And in bug mode they really shine, I think it's my favorite mode of the 2......
