FansProject did do the deluxe Insecticons, though they were just recolors/slight redecos of their normal Insecticons, which is why there's only 3 and no Venom. They redid Shrapnel as Chopshop, Kickback as Ransack, and Bombshell as Barrage, since their insect modes were sorta similar. But since Venom was its own thing, he got left out. I actually liked the official TR versions of Topspin and Twintwist. I had them as a kid too, and yeah, they were kinda goofy compared to the rest of my collection. But Hastak managed to update the designs pretty well. But yeah, I think there would certainly be people in for a non-IDW version of Whirl and Roadbuster.
