A member of ACtoys has posted images of the upcoming Mastermind Creations project, KM-04 Assassin Squad. All three members, which are based on the Insecticons from the IDW's Hearts of Steel comic series, appear in their prototype stages. The figures appear to be roughly deluxe in size, have light up features, and integrated weapons.

EDIT: This is merely a custom and not the product that will be released by Mastermind Creations

We have mirrored the images you can however check out the original posting on ACToys by clicking here.

Kickback looks like a brick! The others look good but he looks awful.

Why are they called Insecticons if they don't transform into insects?

Because they are OBVIOUSLY the characters we know as the insecticons but only re imagined as a strange 3 part train like combiner.....and steam-punky-trainicons sounds stupid :roll:

Actually, Devastator is made by TFclub (not to be confused with the Transformers Collectors Club by fun pub). The same people that made the Gear of War sets and Battle Rollar.

Molding the Decepticon logo in these is a bad idea.

I'm not too big on the chunky look if these guys, but I'll reserve judgement when we see the final versions. I hope they'll include more track sections.

I'm ready to see Cyclops.

YES YES YES! I hope they make the entire HOS lineup! Can't wait for these guys! Now all we need is some seekers, a megs, and little BB caboose to tow behind KMC. That's right Bumblebee, back of the line!

I agree, molding in the Decepticon symbol is a bad idea, and Hasbro will sue MMC in the face, but as long as this thing is legal to buy, me want! =P~

It is being reported elsewhere that these prototypes are not the work of Mastermind Creations but of a unrelated custom piece made using a 3d printer for a college product. Supposedly it's not for mass production which might explain the molded decepticon symbols.

Man I hope you're wrong. Not saying you are, hoping you are.

I am not saying that MMC are not working on the insecticons (they obviously are), but I am just saying other websites are saying that these particular prototypes are not MMC. Just reporting what I have seen. It does explain the strange use of decepticon symbols on a 3rd party product and the light features which they have not used before.

I was a little surprised by that myself, seems like a bad idea.


Oh, thank God someone else caught that. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.

I liked the first GoW set and loved the second one, which is a good sign concerning their Devastator.

I think LC might be on to something. It is starting to look like these might not from MCC. In some strange coincidence someone else may have made their own HOS Insecticons. That would explain the molded on Decepticon symbol. Odd that two separate parties would be working the same rather obscure figures.

strange coincidence indeed if true. Either way the figures we have seen are still awesome,I would buy them! :grin:

but the whole faction symbol being molded onto the figures seem to suggest they could be the rumored college project

I agree with you El. I think LC is correct. The silhouettes on MMC's page do not exactly patch up with what we are seeing here, especially with Kickback. This version is much too blocky while MMC shows him to be more sleek. The Bombshell silhouette also has small inconsistencies around the "toes" and his horn.

I hope this is indeed coincidence, just because I don't want to pay higher prices for a feature I would never use (the lights).

Even though it seems pretty clear these aren't the MMC project I think it's safe to say their figures will look very similar to these. Hopefully even better :D
