    Will like to get one set for the bug mode only, if i can.

    Looks like their will be either two Bombshel, one grey one purple chest, or there is a swap option.

    Not crazy about bot mode, only shrapnel is okayed, and Bombshell is not so okayesh, and kickback in the middle, but may have them in bot mode sometimes too, and may add some silver.

    i think the MS cosmos is fine scale wise. i wish he was a tad bit smaller but he isnt. so either way he will look great standing next to warpath and the rest of the gang....for me

    Love these. They look like an interesting mix of badcube and fanstoys aesthetics.

    Do wish bombshell is a bit better (larger shoulders would help, and I don’t personally like the head) as he’s my favorite insecticon, but it’s not terrible.

    Love how they handled the bug legs. They’re practically not there in bot mode. Excellent stuff

    Looking great! I am definitely in for a set. I might even buy a couple of extra sets - always kinda wanted some small Insecticons in bug mode stuck to the walls of my MP display for a Devastation style Insecticon horde. And since I haven't heard anything about the Dr Wu set, I guess legends figures will do for a horde. I'm not big on troop building but I think it might be fun with Insecticons.

    Man people can be so critical. At this size something's got to give. They look amazing to me and they have incredible articulation it seems. So pumped about them!

    These look great. The only thing that bothers me is how much larger Kickback's head is, as compared to the other two.

    I find something to like about each of them. However, they seem somewhat rudimentary and lack a bit of that NewAge magic.

    Most excited for Bombshell; he's a definite upgrade over Hasbro version. I think Kickback isn't as nice as the Takara version, and Shrapnel is a push (his articulation looks like an upgrade over the Hasbro version but he looks overly simple for some reason). For all three, the chrome looks nice, but I also wish there was translucent yellow parts on them.

    Are these coming with those vines in the picture? I’m definitely making a swarm now.

    Good! Has/Taks legends Shrapnel and Kickback are crap. These looks really nice.

    was pretty excited for the teaser this morning, now with fuller reveal...
    The insect modes look pretty good, except the ... scorpion tail on kickback?
    Yeah altmodes are okay but they miss the mark on the botmodes with odd proportions and 2 of three bots having weird twiggy biceps. Bombshell looks the best but for some reason his thighs have a cheap look to them, nothing paint wouldn’t fix.

    But overall this sounds like a job for iron factory.

    This. Titans Return version was the same, with arms forming the thorax.

    I'm interested, but I'll need to know the size before I bite.

    Addicts have a tendency to have a relapse, even multiple times. Just don't over dose by buying more than one set!!!

    Bummer as well. I'm on the MS boat because I like their figures a lot. I will definitely be getting these either way. Just not sure I will go crazy doing a army build though.
