    I've sampled the pan-tone and RGB colors across several professional applications and as well as adjusted the lighting to attempt to reveal the true color. The sampled "grey" has the same parameters as the "purple" with tones of both red and blue. The blue could be explained as being reflected from the background/sky box, but there should be no warm tones in the sample so I'm pretty confident that this screenshot is washed out purple based on the color sample parameters and 20 years of digital imaging and photography experience. If there is a grey option, that is perfectly fine. I'm indifferent. I just bring it up because you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.
    Now THIS screenshot definitely "looks' to be grey or at least the same black as the body of Shrapnel in the foreground and has no "red" parameters whatsoever in the color sample. So, it remains to be seen. Maybe the set comes with optional parts. I for one really hope that there are at least translucent yellow chest plates.

    I'm thinking that one set of each will make one hell of an insecticon army.

    They don’t look bad at all. Scale wise for me I have fans toys and mmc so it’s a pass for me for the scale alone but still a good looking set of bugs

    I broke down and pre-ordered these fellas from Show.Z. ....I may have also pre-ordered the latest version of Jazz too.

    I'm weak.

    Sorry, but you're mistaken (and I'm a professional artist myself, even though I don't think that matters here). It is definitely gray in the first "bug mode" picture as well.

    Same here... just can’t seem to help myself at the minute... Justifying it by telling myself it’ll work out at a max of £50 a month for everything I’ll need to pay for at different times..!! ;) 

    Don’t Know if the wife will see it like that though...!!

    My worst nightmare is now that MST will finally start releasing a bunch of things I've had pre-ordered, in the same month the bill for sets of these will come due. I know it'll happen. Everyone that's been waiting on MST can thank me. Frickin MST Menasor out of nowhere, and 3 x NA bugs all in one month. Probably all in the same week.

    I've just ordered myself the pocket toys versions of Soundwave and Shockwave... expecting MST to announce them for pre-order in the next month just to spite me!!:eek: 

    Anyway, back on topic ( ;)  ) really looking forward to seeing what these insecticons and the jazz I've pre-ordered from Newage are like... so long as I don't end up having to pay for them in the same month!!o_O

    Not sure how much nicer they could make those two, really, each one is very well articulated and a perfect size (to me), great alt modes. Maybe if you prefer MS's matte finish or slightly oddball/square alts.
