Bugs - Good or Bad?

Hello,

Can someone identify what these bugs are please? Looks like some huge aphids, or some baby stink bugs...??? They are on my black plum tomato plants.

They look like young blister beetles to me - which would be bad guys - but there are hundreds of small black beetles around. Can you enlarge/zoom on the pic so we can see the bugs up closer?

Baby stinkbugs. Flick into soapy water.

Agree. The shoulder shape and the white spots are the give away. Bad guys.
