Coming from Stories From the Toyshelf facebook page we may have our first possible look at Legacy Ransack. Ransack is a repaint of Kickback with a new headsculpt. Take as a rumor until we get an official announcement. This figure is rumored to be a Target exclusive in a four pack with Goldbug, Toy Color Scorponok, and Parasite.
Update: Additional images added.
One of the leakers said that was the plan at the time, & at least one other Dlx Insecticon was planned as a retool (I want to say Bombshell was the one explicitly mentioned as having alternate tooling made for either Barrage or Venom) but they never got around to that wave.
Then again this happened quite a lot, I’d have loved to have seen the Gutcruncher remold of Thrilling 30 Roadbuster, the PotP Monstructor / Dinoking retools or the Build King (plus Double Targetmaster Landfill & Quickmix) Autobot retool of Combiner Wars Devastator, but sometime retailers choose to pass on these.
still hasbro only made chopshop from the legends skrapnel, why not at least redeco the other 2 available molds as well?, that kickback had a far superior insect mode and even then more accurate to ransack than what the legacy will ever be
Yes oh yes to a Bob and g1 Buzzsaw!
If we get Needler, I'm also going to want a Bob. And of course all the other G1 Insecticons, G1 Deluxe Insecticons, the Prime Insecticons, and the RiD15 Insecticons.
Definitely still need a G1 Buzzsaw.
The Deluxe Insecticons are pretty unique in that they're a toy design owned by Bandai and also the characters don't have a lot of fictional appearances Hasbro can point to and say "oh we're doing these guys who appear in our stories" like they can for Jetfire when Harmony Gold gets cranky. No cartoons, barely any comics appearances… most of what Hasbro can point to are the toy designs they don't technically own.
G1 Buzzsaw? I'll allow it….
still not accurate enough he should have proper bug legs, different wings, not just color and head, such a disappointment, i guess only "certain" g1 characters get to be accurate
Aaaaaand he completely missed using the large blades as the ass-end of bug mode….
I was thinking more as a full size Insecticon. A retool of Bombshell into a Scarab for example.
Huffer came with a Spartan Laser, so I'm sure someone else will come with a Needler. Unless you meant the hatbug, then we're waiting until they do "Action Master Universe Bombshell" in the next line.
make Action Master Bombshell a Gen Selects release. include the Arms Micron that came with japanese Airachnid painted green as Needler.
I want this so bad!
Have a look in your local JB Hi Fi. They now stock the 4-pack – just saw 2 of them in Mildura, so if you're in Brisbane you should have no trouble spotting some.
We all are ;__;
I'm still waiting for Netflix to release the last 2 seasons of that on physical media
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ guess we'll have to wait on HasTak purchasing the Armored Insect Battalion Beetras license from them, then.
I know I'm still waiting on Dreamworks to cooperate with Mattel for some She-Ra '18 figures. =(
Ummmm… Venom could POSSIBLY be a heavy retool of Bombshell… They would have to set up the design and molds from the design phase of Bombshell, but something reasonably close to venom could be done that way.
