    that is a lot of energon cubes and they look to be the Newage ones that came with the Insecticons. were you building an Insecticon army?

    They also come with Badcube's Insecticons; they're the same exact thing as far as I can tell. I have sets from both BC and NA.

    The ones that come with the bugs are too big. I use these instead.

    I have a bunch of those. They're cool.

    The only down side (pun intended) is that one side is not very flat at all. It's likely the side they pour from to make them. Some aren't bad, but some you can tell needed a bit more material to be poured in.

    Still, they work well for legends, and they're cheap, considering! And really, if you have some with a bad side, just put them face down. :D

    Since the thread is already bumped, I’ll just add that I hope we see Diaclone repaints of these guys soon.

    new age take on blackarachnia and waspinator would be nice

    but.. but... that means hasbro chop shop would get retired and... he's just to good lookin' to. on the other, the NA are much nicer in insect form than bot (mostly)

    Don't know how I feel about the Deluxe Insecticons. If they are just repaints of the Insecticons with a new head sculpt I'll pass but if they are new molds, and even bigger as they have no cartoon represantation only a toy version, I might be interested.

    Still I'd prefer they do the earth alt mode based Decepticons first before they try their hands on the Delux Insecticons. With a second wave of the Kings of the Hell (Princes?) they could complete the cartoon Decepticons till season 4.

    1. Soundwave
    2. The cassettes (all of them from the cartoon: Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Ravage, Ratbat, Overkill & Slugfest)
    3. Shockwave (has no Earth based alt mode but he's the exception to the rule)
    4. Astrotrain
    5. Blitzwing
    6. Octane
    7. Runamuck & Runabout 2-pack

    Combiners can wait a little longer for me.

    For some reason I don’t see NA doing deluxe Insecticons.
