    Not wonky, Wonko! Wonko The Sane! I am Shrapnel, Decepticon herooo!
    *hits the ground with a thud*

    Tempted to get the Newage cartoon Insecticons after seeing these recent pics. If they make redecos in Diaclone colors, I'll want them yesterday and will likely get multiple sets.

    Sweet Zombie Primus are these NewAge Insecticons beautiful action figures. I would enjoy more artic in their bug modes, but their botmode artic, transformation complexity, and materials construction is flat-out amazing for this size. I dunno if he deserves to win it since MasterMade put stuff out this year, but Kickback absolutely deserves to be nominated for 3P TF of the Year just for his pelvis engineering that enables him to flip it back for TFing and yet still swivel in bot mode. Just spectacular work. I need another 2 sets to make trios of Originals with Drone Duplicates, but want glossy black for the Originals, I'm thinking.

    That's a MegaConstrux blank buck I'm throwing together that happened to be within armsreach for a quick size comparison.

    has anyone put out an Insecticon combiner concept? Either just the three originals or one including the deluxe characters? I think that's something worth doing...

    I mean; I nearly shat meself when Bombshell's arm broke only to reveal it was actually a shoulder hinge for more poseability just because they could fit that shit in to make it awesomer.

    I do not understand why we keep getting butt ugly clear plastic insecticon repaints while there\'s literally no full modern set of the Diaclone/eHobby decos of them.
    I mean COME ON they have a way better deco than these shitstains.

    Newage promised the clear vans would have tougher plastic than their previous clear bots. Any word on whether that applies to the bugs? As the owner of a very distressed-looking clear Porsche Shockwave, I'm leery of any more clear purple plastic.

    Don't do translucent but with a vaction in 1,5 week Newage can do as much translucent as they want so I can recuperate from the money I will be spending.

    And it seems there are people who really like these translucent ones. Maybe as ghost for their Transformers/Ghostbusters display? They may look good with the correct lighting.

    According to their post on Weibo, these are "Ion Storm 2" giveaways.

    So basically the same as the Ion Storm Cosmos that can't be bought threw the regular channels. Think a few members on this board are going to be royally pissed off.

    In what possible universe is it a bad thing to have options?

    There are too many options. People then have a harder time to decide. LOL

    Agreed - if a particular deco doesn't resonate with you, don't buy it. Simple.

    Who is being hurt by having more options? In what world is a variety of decos NOT cool?

    Just because it doesn't appeal to you personally doesn't mean that it won't be the coolest thing ever made in someone else's eyes.

    Hell, NA's Taxi redeco of their Ratchet is one of my personal favorite figures released so far this year... literally a figure I didn't even know I wanted!

    Toon-version strippers are cool, but those translucent ones are a waste of dolla bills.

    I wasn't interested in all the NewAge variants before, but the troop building nature of the Insecticons has me treating these like Star Wars clonetroopers. Every variation is a new group. I love it.
