    My explanation for the different power levels (and CGI models)

    There are many "classes" of Insecticons. The two we saw previously were "warrior class" and the bulk of the swarm we saw in "Armada" were "worker class". Members of the "warrior class" are far better equipped with armor and redundant systems to give them far better endurance, at the cost of having very limited mental capacity. They are the vanguards and defenders of the hive. Most of the swarm we saw today were "Worker class" insecticons who make up the majority of the hive. They have less armor and endurance but have greater mental ability as well as the ability to breed faster. The one we saw in "Tunnel Vision" was also a "warrior".

    Thoughts? :)

    My theory:

    Staff guy 1: Hey guys, how should we make the Autobots badass in this episode fighting Insecticons?
    Staff guy 2: Let's make the Insecticons die easily! They were tough before, so that'll make kids think the Autobots are even better and buy all the toys!
    Staff guy 1: Genius!

    Nevermind.


    I fear that if I bring up Fall of Cybertron's Kickback I'll get a bunch of responses on how Prime isn't in the same universe as WFC.

    The Insecticons are flimsy in their insect modes is what it is. As they were never in robot mode during Armada save for that scene where they surrounded megaton and bowed to him.

    Explains why you never see them getting slapped around in robot mode. Like how Arcee and Bee needed to team up to hold their own against the insecticon.

    The only time insecticons have been taken down was when they were in bug mode (crossfire) Until then, they've been pretty much unbeatable.

    I don't get how this is not an acceptable explanation.

    The "they're easily taken down in insect mode" explanation still does not follow because Arcee shot one while it was in Insect mode multiple times and it wasn't even phased. And I don't think simply changing modes should make a Transformer that much weaker anyway.

    Better brace yourself. People are coming to defend their nonsense theory by making up some BS about Arcee having weak guns.
