That's a great look for him.
This one's even better since it's on the shoulders.
I have an idea. You could join the two sets of L shaped pieces and then put knife like tips on to make a super dooper unwieldy shuriken. Basically 3 pieces long for each arm of the shrunken just for shits and giggles Will look either badass or ridiculous.
There's also a thread where Rumble619 applied the G1 antennae onto the FP Insecticon to such good results that he and spoonman will be setting up a small addon kit that includes replica antennae for the Insecticons. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/444225-insect-add-parts.html
I so need someone to make G1 upgrade head & gun kits for all three of these. 3rd-party people, are you listening?!!
Somebody is! Check the post right above yours. The link CodeXCDM put up takes you right to the development of the first release. Those boys are planning G1 heads, guns, and insect parts for all 3.
Definitely metal. I posted a review on the feedback forum.
FP is doing this, I got mine from ToyArena and it was included in the box in a zip-lock bag.
That's extremely cool! Might support this for the pincers. They did a great job on G1 head, but I love FP's head sculpt.
Spare thundershred blades :0 now he can have wolverine claws and pincers....awesome
shipped him today. can't wait for the last insecticon
Well... around a week maybe? :/ I can pretend it's a moot point -for now- since this onset of 3rd party 'Cons finally got me into using the POL. Ironlically al of those released a month from now mightn't fit- kinda splurged on the BBTS sale and United Stepper 0.o lol
If you have an extra set (or even junkers) it's not that hard to do. Here's my results:
I love that. Might have to try that out myself!
Yeah I think their height's gonna stand out as they'l porbably be placed near seekers alot of the time, and that's one mold that could do with being taller :/ But hey, at least they're in the right size class. I'd be interested to see an upscaled Thunderwing with IDW Stormbringer concepts brought in... Whos meant/rumoured to be working on this?
Wow. This looks... wow! I'm also interested in what you used to mod the deco (I'm a casual observer of Reprolabels at best lol).
Are Frenzy and Rumble confirmed? We already have a couple of options here and it kinda seems a shame to go for say, an interpretation on something more faithful without there being a Soundwave down the line for them to interact/ be displayed with. Out of the above designations, one of many things I'd like to see is either two new limbs for Superion OR their own interpretation of of all five Aerialbots. As naieve as it sounds, FP have progressed to the point where they could come up with a more streamlined and integrated solution to retrofitting the Aerial Team kit to three molds, inspired as that solution is.
Frenzy/Rumble would be kind of weird, considering Takara just released them officially and Perfect Effect also made them.
The blue on his chest is just left over sticker fodder from a repro-labels Superion sticker sheet I had (cut to fit Thundershred's chest). The clear Decepticon symbol is from Reprolabels. Hope that helps.
Exactly, the Takara release was one of about half of those in United that was well on its way to seling out in the weeks after official pics were released; I certainly managed to get only one set of them! I like them! The piledrivers that don't have to partsform don't hurt either Thats along the lines of streamlining I was talking about if the Aerialbots were revisited from the ground up... and perhaps why I havn't quite pounced on PE scouting force.
Not that I don't love FP! On top of Warbot/Springer (who's kinda outside my example) I'm a proud owner of the up-armed City Commander, the Bruticus Crossfire sets and, yes, Protector. The distinction I make is that these add to the size and aesthetics of the core HasTak figs in all modes. The Aerialbots, atleast in jetmode, are smothered in fiddly mods that relegate two of G1's cockiest Autobots to AWACs lol.
Separate names with a comma.
