    Life sized (to their real-life bug counterparts) insecticons are the cutest!

    Got mine yesterday and I have to say that I am VERY impressed by the engineering of these little guys. Hats off, NewAge.

    I own both the original and Toon deco version of these guys and LOVE them, but I want more...

    From NewAge themselves, I want a Diaclone deco version (not out of the question considering they have released Diaclone deco versions of their Bluestreak and Ironhide) NOW, and I'd also buy an 'EX' version of the trio, with trans yellow bits and even shinier metallic silver.

    From MFT, I want to see an OS KO of these dudes, bumped up to the size of their Camera Bros. and sold in a few different color ways [Toy, Toon and Diaclone - I would buy 2-3 packs of each deco and build a SWARM!].

    What does 'EX' mean?

    Was on Newage Weibo page and saw this picture

    [​IMG]

    These are different than

    [​IMG]

    Are they bringing out two sets of tranlucent Insecticons or are these another Weibo give away like Heart of Gold Flipper and Ion Storm Max?

    I just meant 'extra fancy' redecos, similar to what they did with Jazz [the release with the racing livery] and their upcoming Megatron, and even the shinier silver version of Bluestreak, [although he wasn't technically listed as an 'EX'].

    Basically, the same figures but with premium / upgraded / more 'toyetic' details such as the trans yellow 'cockpits', the really shiny silver paint, etc.

    is it possible to pop out the chest pieces? curious if you can swap them out, i've been waiting for a amber chest version, but only the all clear versions have popped up so far.

    the chest should be an easy swap. just knock out a pin at the most.

    Yeah, a pin swap is all it will take, but I don't want to buy a full set of translucent Insecticons just to steal their chests - hopefully NewAge makes my dreams come true!

    Not sure why the clear variants of the Insecticons?  They wasn\'t like that in the G1 Cartoons from what I remember???

    Don\'t get wrong, these are OK, but for me they dont fit in anywhere in the Transformer realm.

    Kudos to those who want them.

    Clear purple? Assuming thats a movie reference, hopefully they do a clear purple version of their seekers.

    I can only assume the clear purple color scheme is a reference to the reformatting scene in the movie? Sure?

    Hey, if NA keeps making awesome Legends scale stuff they can repaint their Megatron pink with green accents and a neon orange scope/stock/silencer for all I care

    With a new Unicron [of some sort] on the way, seems as good of logic as any. Certainly what I debate using them for.
