Well played to Fansproject that they aren't just simple repaints. I see new molding, new heads and new weapons. awesome job. As many have said, I hope there is a Venom homage at some point.

Agreed. I'd be pretty stoked if FP released the weapons alone as an 'upgrade' for their standard Insecticons too.

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but after reviewing the prototype pics of the Warbugs, they appear to have head sculpts that are different from the Ninsecticons and the Armored Battallion Set, so I assume that the Warbugs are actually different characters and not based on the G1 Insecticons or Deluxe Insecticons.

Any news on venom yet ? Prototype pics ? I read the last 2 pages and saw nothing important. I like the look of this set. And honestly the other "Warbug" idea looks like it's just going to be Cybertronian modes for the insecticons.

I wouldn't hold your breath on this. At TFCon, FansProject said that Venom was only "being" considered and they had more pressing projects at the moment.

Would love to have the Warbugs in red and black to be used as army builders for the Ninsecticons. The heads look different than all the other Insecticons, so I'm not sure which direction they are going with the Warbugs.

I'm thinking that the heads should look similar if they are Cybertronian versions of the first 3. I'm glad that all 3 sets have their uniqueness. Makes getting all of them more worth it.

As long as someone makes a Venom in scale with the others, I dont care who makes it. It could be TFC, MMC, or a CHMS repaint of Backfirey with a re-tooled head for both modes. Ill be a happy camper. ;)

these do look magnificent, but I'm holding out for the warbugs. Hopefully they're in as weird and wonderful colour schemes as these guys.

(oh, and I'll second the call for the weapons - maybe in silver? - for the original set...pretty please, please?)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

That would be really cool if true. And makes my pre-order worth that much more. w00t, FP!

*update* went back and looked at the listing of TFSource. There is no specification that this set comes with these weapons, but the promo pictures show each figure with a black-molded weapon.
