    I'd rather they stick to Season 1 and Season 2 show characters for right now. Get a full cast so MP collectors can really start complaining. :lol 

    Given how fast NA cranks out new bots, they can get to other stuff soon enough. I'd like to see them eventually tackle TF Animated.

    is skids season ark cartoon material? and does hasbro gears and windcharger count as legends at this point as we effectively have legends minibots out there now?

    I do feel the urge to be done with 'the core cast' and start seeing some of the IDW newer characters (like. the scavengers...) after IF tackled the DJD.
    Those images of IF lio convoy and megatron 2 look so good ...

    still.. I'm baffled as to the seemingly low request these years for Whirl, Skids, Springer and Impactor at the very least.

    Hasbro Gears and Windcharger are nowhere near NewAge quality, and they'd be too tall to display with NA bots.

    I'm fine with IF continuing to do IDW bots, and other designs like transmetals. But they're already doing stuff like that, whereas I'm saying I'd rather NA to keep up their pace at doing what they've been doing, which is getting the core cast of on screen bots and their repaints. Not even Hasbro\Takara have had enough focus to actually complete a cast like that, either with MP or even CHUGTHULU, with them changing styles or redoing the same characters, or jumping around to different eras of bots.

    I'm not saying companies shouldn't do things other than G1, but I am saying it would be good for a company to focus on actually finishing what they've started.

    Well, someone did it, and I think it looks better than any of their other sets:

    While I won't be trying this modification, don't have the skill for it, it does look nice.

    Id buy this set again if they had a clear chest version, no question.

    Oh and I might as well ask again, does anyone have an extra kickback they’d be willing to sell by itself? My set came with duplicates of shrapnel, so I don’t have the full set.

    why didnt you just message your seller or NA directly. that seems like a really easy fix.

    Ya I probably should have, but I liked him well enough that I didn’t mind having two, insecticons are great for army building after all. Especially at this size. So I decided I wouldn’t worry about it.

    Just figured I’d end up buying another set or the missing guy by himself at some point or another.

    It might be worth asking just in case (and no, don't expect it) they send you a replacement and don't require you to send the extra Shrapnel back. Might as well find out.

    Right. You see that, Magic Square? When you get around to the Insecticons, that's what I want. In just one set.

    That would make me a really happy camper.
    I'll buy Barrage and his mates at any size.
    Really hope New Age expands into core cast characters like them.
    But I'd probably buy diaclone insecticons too.
    I hope they do both, but I'm starting to fear they won't even do Actionmaster/SG Thundercracker.

    If they were going to do them, who would everyone want them to start with?
