"Kickback" is right. As in "someone at Hasbro or High Moon Studios design departments is taking kickbacks from FansProject to design a crappy looking Insecticon!"
Soundwave looks good though, in a "same as the last figure" way. Of course, he'll be a smidgen bigger, hopefully, and does have the whole minicon thing going on now, so that's a plus. That and it saves me hunting down the earlier version. That Fremble looks pretty terrible though, and Ravage isn't all that much better. Laserbeak is ok though. Would be cool to see more of the Cassetticon characters done in this way, but...good.
