    His body type is very reminiscent of a praying mantis, or a cricket. For that matter,
    the flying robots that drop in the mouth-probe leech seemed very insect-like too.

    Could he actually be the leader of the movie Insecticons?

    Seems unlikely to me. Someone on the production staff would've bragged about putting Insecticons in the movie by now.

    In G1, an Insecticon is supposed to be a robot that changes into an insect.
    Scalpel/Doctor is an insect robot that changes into a microscope, but it is obvious that Scalpel/Doctor is inspired by the Insecticons and also the Beast insects and spiders.

    He could be, but far more intelligent. Maybe that's why Megatron holds him in high-esteem compared to the more "disposable" Insecticons?
