This line is just being silly now :HEADHURTS:

I yearn for the day when comic and video game Transformers designs can either 1) Get more than a handful of molds in a line 2) Good designs don't get reduced to Cyberverse size

Why universe hate Waspinator?

Not really interested in these, although a new Classics Waspinator would be hella cool.

:lol: <- My initial reaction.

Pairing Waspinator with Starscream is comedy gold. As for Chop Shop with Megatron, let's hope he doesn't get the urge to steal his Fusion Cannon.

What was a new Waspinator figure too hard make? I'm on the fence about picking him up though or buying an Animated version for my classics shelf...

I love the fact that Waspy goes with Starscream too, nice little BW homage.

1 - Fine :michaelbay:
2 - You linked to one fansite, and then hotlinked pictures from another. I changed the links to the main and original source. If you could link to the original sources instead of secondary ones, that would be the best.

Starscream is in the Guido Guidi Seeker body that only Thundercracker appeared in.

You haven't read "Megatron Origin", have you? All of these new Generations toys are IDW G1 toys. This Megatron is in his "Megatron Origin" body.

I'm sorry, I'm confused about your criticism: how is this tiny figure with limited paint applications not a representation of the image you now have in your signature? :???:

Megatron's overall design looks very War Within-esque, whilst Starscream's jet mode reminds me a lot of Prime Dreadwing and Skyquake's jet modes, plus those bug Targetmasters look bloody awesome!

No interest whatsoever with Megatron since there is a deluxe version on the way.

But is it worth it to get another Starscream just to feed my obsession with Waspinator?

It took Fansproject to show Hasbro the value of the Deluxe Insecticons. If Hasbro is smart they will make a Venom but not legends size.

As cool as he is he's no F-22. Reminds me more of something from Asia, but can't quite put my finger on it.

EDIT: The Mitsubishi Shinshin maybe? :-?

okay. Megatron is a bit rubbish looking, but I like that he's a bit Origins-y. Chop Shop looks fabulous though. Similarly Starscream isn't wowing me too much. Quite like the robot chest, but really, I'll probably see about getting this for Waspinator. C'mon Hasbro, churn out some more of these things!

(oh and a Voyager - or Deluxe if you must - Origins Megatron would be very welcome)

Yeah, I'm going to have to get these. I want me that Waspinator, and that Chopshop. And I suppose the Megatron and Starscream would be cool too.

I like the little inside joke with Starscream and Waspinator. Is there a similar connection between Megatron and Chopshop? Don't know from IDW but that Megatron looks like that Cobra Megatron from the Titanium line.

Ah, so these are the Legends scaled figures that someone alluded to in the thread about chuckdawg's Optimus/Bumblebee reviews.

I was half-expecting Chopshop to transform into Megatron's fusion cannon, for some odd reason.

The crown jewel here is Waspinator, Starscream is the accessory. :lol:

With these releases, I'm more inclined to get the Legends Autobot Targetmasters.

It's a pick axe. Megatron was an energon miner.

Chop Shop doesn't seem to turn into a weapon so much as just strap onto Megatron's forearm, but Megatron looks Decent if not spectacular and Chop Shop sems to be pretty nice on his own merits, so I'll robably get them.

The other set, though? Starscream looks pretty standardly Starscreamish, but it seem to be a solid take on the standard design with a new aestetic. And I love the irony of pairing him with Waspinator... Waspy himself looks a little more dragonflyish in beast mode than I'd like, but otherwise seems pretty good. And it's Waspinator! Yay!

Twitchythe3rd wrote:But is it worth it to get another Starscream just to feed my obsession with Waspinator?


You even have to ask? It's Waspinator! Come on! You know you love him, and this isn't even a Deluxe you'd be comitting to.

Perhaps a pair of oversized scissors? :HEADHURTS:

Honestly, it makes no sense to me as to why they chose Chopshop, of all characters, to pair with Megatron. Starscream and Waspinator, I understand, but Megatron and Chopshop...? :???:

I have absolutely no interest in yet another Megatron and Starscream, but I must own that Chop Shop and Waspinator! Especially since they got Prime Hardshell to hang out with.

Nonsensical as making him Megatron's duffel bag? weapon is, Chop Shop's by far the most remarkable thing about this, since it's his first ever toy originally sculpted for Transformers, rather than the licensed Beetras mold that'll never see reissue!

Alas, he comes with no weapons despite surely having the articulation to wield them now. Guess he'll have to steal some!

This really makes me want a new line of Insecticons. "Insecticons 2.0" featuring Shrapnel, Bombshell, Kickback, Chopshop, Barrage, Venom, and Ransack along with newcomers Waspinator, Tarantulas, and Inferno. :D

SOLD. I'll preorder both.

I wouldn't be interested in this (mini-)line at all if it weren't for the little buddy figures. Chopshop looks awesome.

I would pay out the yin-yang just for the first three Insecticons, Waspinator, and Tarantulus. Maybe Inferno, but the rest of them didn't have make much of an impact in fiction, in my opinion.

I'm digging that Megatron in a pretty big way, but I still don't get it. Why would they make him the odd man out of the four? Everybody else has a reasonable resemblance to their RID bodies, but Megatron gets stuck looking like he did in Origins? I don't get it. And sure, he's just a quick repaint away from his normal Cybertronian appearance, but why not open with that? Look at all these questions Hasbro! I don't like to think this much!

On the other hand, maybe they can crank out enough repaints of both Megatron and Starscream to cover all of the deluxe insecticons with their new best buddy Waspinator thrown in, in which case I'll stop thinking and start jumping up and down for joy.

And yeah, the pairing of those two HAS to be intentional, and I'm just delighted by it. Bravo, Hasbro.

The shaft would be no new toy at all. Frankly, I'm thrilled that we're getting something, anything at all, in Generations that hearkens back to Beast Wars. Generations might just live up to its name one day!
