having problems purchasing Stormbomb... Backfiery was fine, one wrapped one not, can't seem to finish the checkout with Stormbomb though...

Preordered! What's sad is I'm expecting these to come in before my preorder for the Warpath/Wheeljack/Thundercracker set gets filled! Now all I'll need it the Reflector repaint of Perceptor to release (or the TFClub one) and my pre-movie Decepticons will be nearly complete!

...f***in' Blitzwing, man...

Preordered, of course. The only thing I'm not as pleased about with these guys is the weird FP faction symbols, but they can be easily covered with Reprolabels.

i would love to preorder except for one thing...

Yeah, we got Octane instead?!?!?

Would love to get Blitz as a Voyager, though.

Octane doesn't bother me. He was easier to make and they did a really good job. Same with Astrotrain. But the whole "we don't want to make the same character for Classics 3.7 as we did for Animated" thing Hasbro was saying went out the window with Jazz, Wreck-Gar and anyone else who has been made since. I understand that they wanted to do character they were going to get more that one use out of but WFC figures blew a hole in that from the start.

Sorry to go off topic but still.

Just saw the preorder go up, ordered 'em, came here to see who else had noticed.

Can't wait for these guys, although I don't normally get the 'beast' types I have fond memories of a Kickback I had back as a kid in the '80's - got last years' (or the year before that??) G1 reissues. Sweet.

All three pre ordered! Glad they are spaced apart by a month! Otherwise there would be no way for an unemployed TF collector like myself to get in on this. Haven't missed a FP release yet and don't plan to start now!

Thanks to Joel of BBTS, we have Hi-Res images of the Insecticons:

Personally, I'm planning on slapping Con insignia overtop of the logos.

I like the logos, makes them stand out from their Decepticon brothers.

Hmmm... The plastic/paint looks a little different from what FP has served us so far. Maybe I'm just seeing things, but I'm still a tad concerned. :-?

I just got my preorder notice from BBTS on that set a few minutes ago. So my preordered Thundershred looks to be getting filled after. =)

This year is going to suck. ha! While I'm glad most of the DotM stuff is junk, as that saves me some money, there's so many 3rd party things coming out to suck more money than I have. $150 for Fansproject Insecticons, $600 for TFC Devy, MMC Shockwave and Insectitrain (if those come out this year) -- oh and for legit toys throw TRU MP Rodimus and probably the 2nd edition Takara Rodimus and new MP-10 Prime in the mix. Ugh...

how tall are they?

I think they will be about the same size as the other Casualities, but don't quote me on that. Got all three preordered now. YYYEEESSS!!! Now to get some money together for Flameblast and Warcry....

BBTS is listing them as 11.5 - 12 cm each. Munitioner is 10 cm, so they will be a smidge taller than the previous Crossfire/Causality releases.

And, I just preordered both figures, had Thundershred already ordered.

You know, those are pretty inexpensive compared some other 3rd party products. Kudos to FP for keeping prices relatively reasonable.

whether out of package or in these causality figures will look so beautiful on display.

on a side note is it wrong that most of my purchases this year have been fp items.oh well cant wait for my clear protector and these guys! :D
