Hearts of Steel Insecticon Train Custom Images (not MMC)

99_81764_1ed3315c06443e8

A user on fellow toy board Actoys has shared images of a Insecticon figure rendered in the Hearts of Steel style. This is not the version that will be released by Mastermind Collectibles but a completely unrelated custom piece made using a 3D printer for a college project. Shrapnel seems like a faithful rendition including a Insectrain alternate mode (front section), which seems to indicate Bombshell & Kickback will be next. Click above to view all images.

Update: Complete prototype image gallery up thanks to Actoys.

    Thought their next was Shockwave. Is this confirmed theirs, is this what they're doing now? If so, do want.

    Could be another fan company, mastermind seem to make very slow progress and only just started teasing their next project.

    Either way this is pretty awesome, perhaps between them we'll see all of Guido's HoS designs brought to life.

    Regarding HoS Shrapnel here, the arms look a bit too small in train mode and his legs are round the wrong way (going by Guido's sketch) in bot mode but otherwise a great first crack at it.

    Damn you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL To the whole company issue, it is MOST LIKELY Mastermind since they are the only company to mass produce a HoS figure. Contrary to that, they have said their next project is Shockwave and not this. Either way, this deserves awesome dances of jubilation and glee

    I agree... it's impossible at this point that Mastermind team is the creator of this
