    I was very stoked when I saw the teaser, but the bot modes sadly leave me a bit underwhelmed, mainly for the reasons given by @deaculpa. Bombshell's okay, but Kickback's head is too big for his body IMO and Shrapnel's face appears under-detailed (could just be the pics, though). And both look a bit spindly, mainly due to the arms.

    The proportions look fine to me. I'm not a fan of the chunky limbs look.

    I like what they've done to hide the insect limbs; Bombshell's are on the back of the robot legs, Shrapnell's hand down behind the shoulders, and Kickback's... I think Kickback's get tucked into that yellow backpack thing.

    I will be interested to see Magic Square's versions nevertheless - I can't help but feel, given some of the smaller, thinner pieces they've produced so far, that they might do a better job of the insect limbs (you've got to admit that they are rather rudimentary here).

    Still, great to see more being churned out :)

    I passed on Hasbro's Insecticon legends since their forms are so busy, with legs jutting around all over the place. These are beautiful in their simplicity. Be interesting to see how small they are compared to other bots, but judging from their limb sizes I'd say pretty small! Which is great.

    @ShowZStore I'm ready to do some serious pre-ordering. New Age says they're releasing in July. Are you guys putting a page up soon?

    if these are set to be around b's height. then they will basically be the same size as beachcomber in every way.

    Considering we’re seeing boxed and ready to ship samples of the Jazz repaints and I would assume Ironhide and Ratchet very soon, I do not doubt the bugs will be shipping late July.

    With 4 Jazz remolds, 2 vans and 3 Insecticons I don't think they will be all out in July, that would be more than 2 figures per week. One per week would be more reasonable.

    Didn't follow Newage from the beginning but have they done more than 1 figure a week.

    And yes, I don't think the Insecticons will.come out as a pack, at least not in the first run. But would be happy to be wrong.

    So, will we see figures MS has done or will they play off each other more? I know both companies are doing the vans and datsuns. Different sized cosmos. MS has already given us beachcomber seaspray and huffer. Will NA?

    Yeah. The Insecticons are a set from what I’ve read. And technically the Jazz repaints are shipping now-1st week of July. Leaves a lot of open space for Vans and Bugs.

    I'm generally not a fan of chunky limbs either (except, of course, when it suits the character). But I'm also not a fan of spindly limbs, which is how these appear to me. YMMV of course. :)
