    Thoughts:

    • Great robot mode
    • Great insect mode
    • Clever transformation

    Should you get him? In my opinion, yes.

    I kind of hope they release a 3 pack that unifies their colors. Nice figure. Nice review.

    So, I wonder if with Kickback being released, I wonder if Megatron_91 would finally be able to use the Insecticons.....

    It took us, what, 3 Story Sublines (Thrilling 30, Combiner Wars and Titans Return) to finish the Insecticons........here's hoping we get the Dinobots next.....

    While I think the clear yellow looks great, I really wish is wasn't translucent. It looks so out of place next to the others.

    Kickback looks amazing! The black nose is a touch odd, but still he's an instant buy.

    Hopefully we get Barrage, Venom, and Ransack in a more timely fashion. Don't want to wait another 3 years...

    They definitely should make a 3 pack like that. I'd skip it though since I'm fine with how they all look like right now, but it'd be nice for the people that missed out on the first 2 when they initially came out.


    No problem. :) 

    Yep, 3 story sublines and it was worth the wait. :) 

    I actually really like the clear yellow being translucent.

    Thank you. :) 

    You'll very pleased when you get him in hand. Transformation can be a bit annoying the first few times, but it'll get less annoying the more you do it.

    Articulation is pretty good.

    Here's a few more pictures:

    Yeah, the black nose is a bit weird, but oh well.

    Hopefully we don't have to wait that long. :lol

    does he match either of the other two or is he his own color?

    it'd suck to have 2/3 be the same color lol

    He's his own shade of purple.

    Shrapnel has a darker shade of purple and Kickback has a lighter shade of purple.

    Oh, and Bombshell has the darkest shade of purple out of all of them.

    Yup. I have the original insecticons. It's nice how they all match. I like these, but I'm bothered that they're all slightly different shades of the same color. First world problems, I know.

    He looks good! I like the head sculpt, its dead on. the transparent chest/canopy is a great touch. My only complaint, is his arms seem kinda long and skinny, and quite purple. The only other issue is, due to the length of time and the fact the 3 of them have been released in different segments of Generations, you can clearly see some inconsistancies in colors and engineering. That being said, I would also be down for a 3 pack that unifies them a little more.

    amazing-zing! How well does he pose in beast mode mode? Is he like Skrapnel a brick brick? Or can he pose like Bombshell-shell?



    Sorry i am just excited to get him so i am mimicing G1 Shrapnel and FOC Kickback's vocal patterns to entertain myself

    Movieverse Decepticon symbol.... That probably shouldn't bother me as much as it does...
    Anyway, it'll be nice to have the Insecticon trio. I would've preferred opaque yellow instead of the clear, but I'll live with it considering the color discrepancies among the three.
