Well Skrapnel will get repainted someday for something I'll bet, but I'm hoping they do a Bombshell homage sometime.
They need to...l need them to...want them to...they have to, right?...maybe next year will be the year of the insects...
I really hope so. They nailed Shrapnel.
Maybe the next Bay movie can help and create the hype for Insecticons.
I can see it now... Transformers: Age of Extermination.
I really want them to, especially Bombshell, but considering how they handle the seekers weeeell we may be in for a loooong wait.
Nope. They haven't done obvious repaints of seeker jets in that line and FOC only had 1 Insecticon released.
I hope so. If they released all three, I'd buy them, no question.
God i hope they make other two. They knocked it out of the park with shrapnel. He is easily as my favorite legends release aside from cosmos.
I don't expect them to, but I'd like for them to do so.
*half-expects them to just repaint the Prime Insecticon for Bombshell, "hey it's one of them spiky beetles, right?"*
I think we can all agree that Hasbro SHOULD. I don't think most of us are certain or hopeful that they will. Like puma pointed out, they didn't even give us one of the obvious seekers as a repaint.
They could make ChopShop out of Shrapnel right?
I assume you guys are talking about the Armada seeker mold, 'cause we got the main seeker trio from the FOC mold.
EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot about the legends Starscream.
I wouldn't mind..
However, that being said, I'd prefer that we get them as a mini-con 3 pack. I love using my Mini-con Chop Shop on Titan Metroplex just for the sheer scale. (Always envision the scene in the '86 movie w/ the hungry original 3 insecticons)
I'm really hoping they do but I have little faith that they actually will. That's why I ordered 3 Skrapnels so I can at least have a trio of Insecticons, even if they are all the same (also wanted a trio of Reflectors).
You'd think Chop Shop, Barrage, and Ransack would be the go-to repaints of Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback, wouldn't you? Maybe with retooled heads (at least for Choppy, the others could pass as is) and torsos, but they've got the same bug modes and similar-ish bot modes, so it just makes sense.
Though since Chop Shop already got that Targetmaster mold, I doubt we'll see him again so soon. Which raises the question why did they make two stag beetle molds?
I could see a Shrapnel to Bombshell remold. Here's a little rough mock up I made.
Kickback would be more difficult.
Considering they only remolded the head for Gears, I'm not holding my breath.
Hasbro release a complete trio in Generations? That's crazy talk.......
They're repainting Starscream into Acid Storm, Prime into Nemesis Prime, Bumblebee into Cliffjumper, Swerve into Gears, etc.
I'll be shocked if we don't get another insect out of Skrapnel.
I did the same thing.
Now I hope we get all 3 but if we don't I wish they would repaint him into the colors of Barrage, I'd love a big Chop Shop to lead my little Chop Shops but those color would be great to have.
I am worried about that Cliffjumper repaint we saw it once and I know it was in the database but it hasn't been shown officially yet or I missed it.
It's odd how he had a mismatched targetmaster but the others that have been repainted all came with the correct targetaster.
