I have a question for the more astute among you. How is it that one of the myriad Insecticons on Prime (all of whom look exactly alike and are based on the same CGI model) now has a name and voice separate from the herd? Aren't they all essentially 'Hardshell' when you come down to it? Why go so far as to name one of them and have it speak when there doesn't appear to be any individuality amongst the group? Kind of the same thing as calling out one specific Vehicon and giving it a name (and Steve doesn't count) to differentiate it. Virtually meaningless when you consider their life expectancy. In the G1 cartoon Kickback, Bombshell, and Shrapnel obviously all had separate bot/insect modes and personalities, but the current Insecticons seem much more amalgamous, so why the need to call out Hardshell specifically, and ultimately... what makes him so special as to be his own guy?
