Fight! Super Robot Life - Japanese Transformers Takara boxed Insecticons MIB

Group shot of Takara boxed Insecticons:
40-Kickback MIB
41-Bombshell MIB
42-Shrapnel MIB

I have variously been told that, among the early G1 Japanese pieces, these pieces are quite rare, but I never quite fully appreciated just how difficult it could be to find them. It's been about 15 months since I bought these as part of a 36 pieces (and more actually) mega-lot from Devstar37 and to be honest, I have not seen any Takara boxed Insecticon pop up for sale on Yahoo Japan, Yahoo HK, eBay or FB sale pages.

Below is a selection of group shots. Basically in just whatever configuration I fancied shooting them in, no rocket science or anything groundbreaking.

  1. Hello, I'm writing to you regrarding the Japanese version of G1 Kickback which was released in 1985, I was wondering If knew what the yellow texting is at the top of its box despite G1 Kickback transforming from his Grasshopper form to Robot form by any chance because I'm having trouble with it. I wasn't sure If you either read, speak or write Japanese but I really need your help on this.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this comment and I hope to hear back from you soon.

    All the best
