    If I had to choose between the back and the sack, the latter gets it. The orange, yellow, and hot pink eyes just scream 80's on the black.

    There were some advantages to KB however:

    1. Grasshopper legs became robot arms though I wish he came with seeker like fists to cover the claws.

    2. Like Kick's chest better, the way it was unsymmetrical.

    3. Head rotated (can't remember if Ran's did).

    4. Kick I think had an intelligence of 9 - so disappointed that Ransack only had a 6 I believe.

    Maybe I like robot form Kickback better. At times like this, multiple choice wouldn't be too bad, but I got to play fair.

    Bombshell. He's a psychologically manipulative sadist with mind-control weaponry. That's just a walking nightmare right there. You know, IDW again...in AHM they made a big thing about the Insecticons being really unique and useful and worth creating thousands of twisted failures to get. Bombshell was being used to glean info about the Headmaster process and then...storyline went nowhere.

    Par for the course, I guess.

    Was Shrapnael the leader of the standard 3?
    He always seemed to give the orders despite his intelligence?
    If you pay attention to those tech-specs, wasn't intelligence

    Shrap: 6
    Bomb :8
    Kick: 9

    Who was the strongest of the 3?

    Bombshell bar none. Probably the most underutilized con. Could easily take over the cons and bots.

    Aside from the initial 3 I don't really know or care about the other insecticons.

    Bombshell automatically wins for having a mouthplate like a knight's visor.

    Loved robot face, but other than that Bombshell was boring to me.

    Bombshell is the greatest. Love the design, love his powers and love the actionmaster.

    If you're talking about his Cerebro-Shells, why didn't he use those during the movie? Then he wouldn't have to be Cyclonus' armada.
    Bomb had no role in the movie didn't he? We saw him getting blasted by Springer with a cannon, thrown out of Astrotrain, and transformed by Unicron.

    Many others had no role, just as cannon fodder. If I recall correctly, even Wheeljack's corpse could be seen when Springer, Arcee, Kup and Hot Rod were pushing that gi-normous cannon in place to shoot Devastator.

    And Wheeljack was a big character before that...

    yep. Underutilized. I think if the movie wasn't so toy driven he would have done quite a bit more damage.

    Evidence indicates its thev other vway around.

    Wheeljack's "presumed" corpse/

    It was never confirmed within the narrative that Wheeljack died.
