So, are they ever going to make up their minds about these Insecticons?

    I hate to be a Negative Nancy, but in the preview for New Recruit, the Insecticons suck YET AGAIN. Seriously, will the Prime guys ever make up thier minds with these things? They use to be awesome (Orion Pax part 2, Crossfire, Tunnel Vision.), but they suck elsewhere. Do they need more Hardshells to make them more of a threat?

    Anyone got an answer?

    I'm Sure well get Kickback & Sharpshot. To get revenge on Miko for the death of their dear brother.

    Nope. Conservation of Ninjutsu. Pull enough Insecticons into the battlefield and even the kids will give them a run for their money.

    I wish. They're basically just glorified Vehicons if all they do is be fodder that go down after a one or two shots. We need more Crossfire and Hardshell tier Insecticons that actually put up good fight scenes instead of guys being there just to make the Autobots look cool one shotting things.

    Yep, Kickback was left under that door and eventually died of starvation.

    Shrapnel was crushed and killed by Grimlock.

    They've basically become buffed up Vehicons.

    It makes me wonder who we'll have in season three.

    They're just bigger, dumber Vehicons that are dispatched just as easily if not more so. I'm not sure why they even exist.

    I thought Hardshell illustrated that Insecticons are not equally and that they are a group of varying strengths and skills.

    Pretty much this. Another version of the "disposable cannon fodder troops". I don't necessarily hate that, though. I'm not too fond of it, mind you, but I don't despise the idea. Would've much preferred a trio of unique Insecticon characters like Hardshell.

    If you were going to (wrongly) assume Prime is a sequel to FOC, at least take note that Bombshell suffered a similar fate, being knocked unconscious and the had his face slammed through a machine and left in it.

    You never see any fatal wounds inflicted. He's still intact last you see him.

    I think he's referring to FoC where shockwave says some insecticons are weaker than others.
