    Okay I don't know if anybody has posted this yet, with my luck probably, but in case not, whe you watch the Toxcity clip you hear Megatron call a Insecticon Hardshell, and if your a dedicated obsesed fantaic off Transformers like myself, you would know that Hardshell is another name for Bombshell, which is usally used when Hasbro can't get the rights to the name, I can't remember if it was on the list of names Hasbro tyred to copyright but, BOMBSHELL will "Technecly" be in Transformers Prime, also the Insecticons insect modes resemble Bombshell's almost, dose this mean we will get a toy of him and will we also get Kickback ans Shrapnel?

    We'll probably just get a generic Insecticon toy

    Probably to help sell the toy better than just plain ol' Insecticon.

    "Hey, kids! This Insecticon has tattoos and totally decimated a main character! LOVE HIM!"


    I swear to Primus, if Starscream doesn't interact with Hardshell and say: "Tattoos? Cool, I should get my own!", I will be sad.

    Its Megatron becoming genre aware, he could've called it Bob and increased its chances of success by at least 10% over nameless bug thing.

    no, most likely just a way to distinguish him from the generic insecticons without having to speak.

    The white markings on his chassis. They look somewhat like claw marks.

    No pictures as of yet, but if you watch the Promo you'll see them near the end.

    Never mind I took the liberty of doing it myself.

    Say hello to Hardshell everyone!

    He reasoned that chicks dig scars. Unfortunately his chances of getting lucky have fallen considerably with Airachnid in stasis, thus making him a deadly opponent with little to lose.

    Life for a Decepticon must suck when there's only two girls, one of which is in stasis (and a psychopath) and the other is on the enemy's team.

    Is that the Insecticon saying "your Spark is mine" or is it Megatron's voice?

    It's nice to see Hardshell in Prime. I liked the idea that he has those scars to distinquish him from the rest of the bots.

    Hopefully, more named insecticons appear in the future. Though I think it would be a great plus if they have more unique forms.

    Its why the Nemesis is a very "don't ask, don't tell" place.

    Well it's pretty obvious the reasoning behind his name: he has the same alt mode as Bombshell, but Bombshell isn't a name Hasbro's using anymore, so they went with HARDSHELL aka the stand-in name for Bombshell.
