Loved this figure

I still have one, albeit in parts because I used some bits for a few customs, but as a kid it was one of my favorite figures. Articulation was a bit better than most Transformers at the time, and the design of the toy is top-notch.

I got one of these back in

I got one of these back in the day. I remember playing with it mixed in with my Transformers. I pretended he was another Insecticon, but it bugged me (see what I did there?) that he wasn't black and purple like the others I had, the ones from the show. I was unaware of the deluxe Insecticons until I was much older.

I still have this guy in a baggie with several other cheap transforming toy knockoffs I had as a kid. Love the design these many years later.

Oddly enough, the gun design

Oddly enough, the gun design that this belongs too, came withe the grasshopper when it was a deluxe Insecticon.

Also I recall a I was given a three pack at a VERY early age (probably like 4 years old), which had the convertors Grasshopper, beetle with the rubber attentae but I don't recall what the third was (maybe this guy).

I have a knock off of this

I have a knock off of this that's a very slight retool. It comes from the Quick Change line along with most of the other Insect Robots that I reviewed. I don't think mines is different enough to post a review since there were only very minor things changed.
