    After getting a good look a the insect heads in FoC, i've noticed that the heads look similar to some of the G1 insecticons. Namely these include:

    Venom--foc crawler
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    barrage--foc pest
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ransack--foc creeper
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Chop shop--foc parasite
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Remember, I only suggested that they are SIMILAR, as in they have some of the same design cues, bear a passive resemblance, or may just be a sort of modernized look based from the original.

    Post your thoughts or any ideas you may have regarding this theory or any other ideas you may have!

    Just me personally I think Crawler is Hardshell/Bombshell, Pest is Shrapnel, and Parasite is Kickback. Have no idea who the 4th one is.

    I figured that they were just the insect mode heads of the Insecticons. Kinds like what they did with the Dinobot heads.

    Yeah, this. I believe only Kickback, Bombshell, and Shrapnel are in the game. We've had confirming screenshots.

    Im not sayin their in the game, im just sayin the heads are like a visual homage to them.

    And weren't bombshell, kickback, and shrapnel (or whatever trademark issues are calling them) in the G1 optimus trailer with the same appearace from the facebook screens?

    When I zip by that Venom pic, it looks like he's flipping someone off.

    I think you're right.

    As a matter of fact, I think all seven have their parts in-game.

    Venom and Ransack are the flying ones, while Chop Shop is the bruiser, while Barrage will be a generic. Bombshell, Shrapnel and Kickback will be uniques.

    It may seem like he's giving you the finger, but in reality his FOREHEAD is flipping you off.

    credit to tfwiki subtitles for that joke

    I think they're just campaign insecticon heads, I don't really like them for my bots but if we get an insecticon DLC as they said, I might use one for my bot form.
