It's so interesting to see all the different takes/fan theories on the Insecticons' origins.

Holy cyber-venom! They look awsome! But I don't remember Insecticons looking like them. Are they new?

It's the "Deluxe Insecticons" group: they had toys, but no cartoon appearances (just a cameo in Marvel UK comics).

nice. :)
I'd make a joke about one of the names of the incecticons, but I don't think newer readers would get it, since Mac Gargan's now Venom.

Great to this come out! As a big Insecticon fan, I really like the story here. I have always wanted to see the Deluxe Insecticons in the "traditional" Insecticon color scheme of the purple, gold, black and chrome. This is my first time seeing this in color.

Awesome comic, I really like the story and seeing the other four insecticons that didn't get any screen time. :D

Thanks, the idea came when Peter uploaded the variant colors on his page, for the profile collection.

Venom was a green and yellow Deluxe sized bug that was Boxed, if I recall correctly--
ah, ok, Green and Orange

I think he showed up in one of the kid's books but not on the cartoon or anything.

>> clicked before I finished. I really like this comic, very interesting twist to the Insecticons and how the three we know and love are traitors to the others because they dropped their "primitive" forms

Thanks! Some of the Deluxe Insecticons briefly appeared in "Time Wars" (Marvel UK), possibly as members of the Decepticon Mayhem Attack Squad.

very cool. Sadly I never got a chance to read the comic, US or UK, no scratch and being an american kid I didn't know there WAS a UK version of the comic at the time

The Deluxe Insecticons all appeared in Dreamwave's "Micromaster" four part series.

That's...probably one of the few good things to say about the series.
