I really hope the other two Insecticons get made in this scale.
Cue somebody saying we got the other two in other lines.
Really though, after seeing Skrapnel next to Shrapnel it looks like a very nice update.
Here's also hoping Reflector gets to be 3 bots again someday.

Skrapnel looks awesome! Bet he'll look great with Chop Shop and Hardshell (and hopefully Hasbro makes more little Insecticons to go with).

Skrapnel looks pretty great. I don't like the flames on Tail-thingy but other than that, he looks great. It's not like he's going to be in alt mode anyway, he's too old to transform.

That tailgate will be such a place holder for the windcharger repaint everbody really wanted. Hopefully funpub churns it out one day. Shrapnel is nice but deserves a deluxe figure. Hasbro is a little late, FP filled the void 2 years ago.

I love the FP Insecticons, but I'll get this guy.

I guess there are only so many ways to do a Targetmaster-y gun, so it's probably a coincidence, but Reflector ended up looking like an amalgam of Spinister's Nebulans, Singe and Hairplitter. Doesn't he also have a camera mode that just didn't get photographed?

And new-Tailgate looks nice, compared to old-yeller next to him. Last time I had a Tailgate in that kind of shape, I boiled him in black dye to make a Wipe-Out.

Both will be bought on sight.

These are awesome. Hope to see these and Swerve & Cosmos in stores soon!

Also, it's nice that both of these appear to have a head swivel. The one thing I really dislike about Starscream & BB from the new Legends line is there stupid, stationary heads.

I wish we didnt have to go through the usual BB, OP, Megs and SS waves. Chop Shop should have been a bigger figure.

This is the Tailgate mold they should've used for Wipe-Out.

That Windcharger mold should've been repainted into Blackjack.

Skrapnel/Shrapnel doesn't look too horrible, but I would rather pick up Tailgate. I've been reading MTME and somebody give this guy a hug!

These are great molds, and I look forward to adding them to my Neo G1 lineup. The only problem I see here is the copious lack of paint. Those pincers on Shrapnel look horrific in that bland white-gray plastic, not to mention the fact that they left his face unpainted.

Tailgate also has a great mold, but a lot of the detail is washed out by the color scheme, which is made more apparent when he's next to his G1 predecessor.

Maybe Takomy will fix this on their version.

Here I mentioned Wipe-Out, but hadn't really considered the consequences of repainting the new guy into him. This whole case might be a huge pain in the ass to find no matter how widely it gets distributed thanks to fans wanting 3 Skrapnels for clones and a proper Reflector triplicate, and a second Tailgate to repaint!
(Well, dye in my case; I've always had better luck with it cuz' Rit don't chip)

No wonder those cancellation rumors had so many of us panicked.

And yeah, repainting the RTS Windcharger mold into Blackjack would be worth a shot...if every version of him wasn't so scarce and expensive. If it was done officially, he could be packed with the proper Detour repaint that ROTF scout Dead End deserves.

Hoo-doggy, I luvs me some Skrapnel! Also, I dig the name; not quite as...sluggish...as naming Slag into Slug. Sorry for the pun.

Not a fan of the flames on Tailgate nor the fact that I can't decide if that mold is the love child of the Prime BH Cyberverse 'Bee and Wheeljack figures or not. Both facts annoy me greatly but not so much that I'll pass on the figure. Consider Tailgate and Skrapnel "bought on site".
That is, of course, provided I can find the damn things. I'm not holding out much hope for that. All the stores in my area stock exactly two things: Jack and Sh**, both of which are Prime BH peg warmers and look remarkably like Bumblebee.

ive been very underwelmed by shrapnel since the first pics surfaced. he looks flat. no detailing and minimal paint. ill still buy him though... cheap and he might surprise me in hand.

i dont know why everyones calling for a new windcharger? rts/united was awesome! and blackjack? thats pretty much who the united windcharger was packed with. (wipeout i know, but colors match!)

I am not really into the legend size figures(except the data discs for Soundwave/Blaster), but I might have to make an exception for that Skrapnel. :CON:
