I'll be voting for Shrapnel, I really want a set of full-sized Insecticons (assuming this is a pole for a new deluxe or larger).

We just got good retail figures of both the Sharkticons and Shrapnel. The Battlechargers were in the cartoon so there's always a chance for them. Needlenose is the odd one out, so he's who I'd vote for.

Needlenose is without a doubt the one I will vote for.

Yes for Needlenose here as well.

The choices are a bit weird, it is almost like Hasbro really just wanted a vote between Needlenose and Runabout/Runamok and said lets put 2 characters we've already done reasonably well in there for filler.

I'm in it for Needlenose, though if he's not chosen, do you think we'll see him back for 2021 vote ;)

I can sorta see an arguement for all 4 characters. Shrapnel would likely be similar enough to FOC Kickback that they wouldn't look awful next to each other, the battlechargers haven't had retail figures in quite a while, having a Gnaw as a deluxe would be a cool leader to a Sharkticon army, Needlenose hasn't had a figure at retail in a while with the latest figure being a collector's club one. For me, it's a tie between Needlenose and maybe Gnaw. Though if the deluxe Sharkticon is actually one of those Allicons, I'm all for it. But, I doubt it

Edit: Whoops, forgot Takara had a recolor of the Blackjack mold in the Adventure line for the battlechargers :oops:

Needle nose for me, not quite sure why another insecticon so soon when they have the legends sized figures to fill out (unless it's the deluxe insecticon at deluxe size, then yay! - reflectors already arguable about scale so bigger insecticon would def throw scale out of the window).
Talking about throwing things out of the window... Gnaw??? Wrong time zone let alone we have TR and cyber verse that are usable (especially cyber verse). Maybe we will see some out of time/place cybertronians in siege line after all (excluding faction change jet fire which already breaks the time line). Galvatron may be sooner than we think (and he time travels anyhoos).

Needlenose all the way here, unless the Battlecharger silhouette is a stand-in for a surprising candidate: generic Decepticon from Devastation.

I'll be voting for the dude who had the the sterner stuff to fight Ultra Magnus:

:lol:

Needlenose would be pretty sweet too, but I have a feeling he'd be based off his original toy instead of his TCG design

Needlenose, though if Hasbro released a 3-pack of the Legends Insecticons with premium, matching decos in the Selects line, I'd probably buy that. The subtle quality differences between T-30, CW, and TR 'bug' me.

Either the Battlechargers or Neddlenose would be awesome. I don't see why we need new versions of toys that were released less that two years ago.

Add one more to the needlenose list. I also agree that the addition of Gnaw and Shrapnel are odd here. while gnaw could have been better, they are already fine additions, and scale proportionately to when compared to their g1 toys counterparts, and not that much shorter from their toon versions really (when compared to siege deluxe scale) g1 gnaws toy was quite a bit bigger then the status quo at the time, so maybe a bigger one would be nice. but personally I feel we need to have more figures that haven't gotten any love in a long time, or at all.

I don't really care who wins the vote (don't have an attachment to any of these guys), but I'll be casting my vote for Needlenose.

Needlenose for sure.

I like my Insecticons smaller so Shrapnel would be a distant 4th for me.

These are just weird choices, except for Needlenose, who lost the fan vote last year. I have a feeling Hasbro and Takara REALLY want to make him. It'd be nice to have the Battlechargers, but it's pointless if we only get EITHER Runabout OR Runamuck. We need both or nothing at all. We already have a great Sharkticon figure, but if this is at the Deluxe size, maybe the cartoon scale is better? Shrapnel is definitely the worst choice. We already have the Insecticons at the perfect cartoon scale size, that being Legends Class. They're supposed to be around the same size as the Minibots, particularly Huffer. They're not nearly Deluxe Class sized like Reflector is supposed to be, standing eye-to-eye with the likes or Prowl or Sideswipe. I already have the TFCC Needlenose, so I guess my top pick would be the Sharkticon. My second choice would be Needlenose.

The way I see it, if Runabout/Runamuck gets made, not only will the other get made, but there is a very good chance of the mold being retooled as Sunstreaker, considering they share a similar body layout.

Although Needlenose could get retooled into Jhiaxus, so there's that possibility as well :-?

Runabout and Runmauck may look similar, but each sports a different car mode and head design. Speaking of which, it's probably the white Runamuck in the silhouette, judging by the head and faceplate, not to mention his gun:

Makes sense, the "Runamuck" trademark was still available back in 2012, while "Runabout" was not, being replaced with "Over-Run" for the 2012 Club toy.

Yep, if one gets made, the other will be his pretool. Calling it right now!

Needlenose has a deluxe figure.
Gnaw has a legends figure, an upcoming deluxe for Cyberverse and an older deluxe.
Shrapnel has a legends figure that was released twice outside of Japan.
The Battlechargers have both deluxe and legends figures.

I'm good on all of these choices already.

I get that not everyone (like myself) was able to get all of them as several were exclusives but still, these are some shitty choices.

The only ones I'm missing out of the figures we already got are both versions of Runamuck and Botcon Gnaw. Also Cyberverse Gnaw as it's not out yet. So I guess my vote would be for Runamuck, if it is revealed to be him specifically as he's the only one I don't have any version of currently.

Given all of them have modern releases, I'm disappointed these are our options.

Obviously I'd love to see a total random like Stalker thrown in, but I guess it's hard for Hasbro to move past the first two years. At least they're showing some Decepticon love for once I guess.
