    Seriously, after watching the Massive fury pack preview a thousand times and staring at the leaked screenshots I've been left wondering where's the Insecticon mission?

    The Dinobutts got a fairly large stage and the Insecticons are their rivals basically, so where is their mission? It would have been a blast buzzing about and collecting things for Shockwave, or trying to capture Grimlock's team. The sky is the limits on what cool mission they could have done with them. I just find it odd that they really aren't very prominent in the story, you don't see their alt forms aside from some holograms, in fact you never really fight THEM, just their minions or whatever boss stage they dumped them in.

    Seems like they put a lot of work into their designs but they're basically never really expanded upon. A mission of their own would have been pretty awesome. Seems like a big missed opportunity to me.

    agreed. i flew through those "boss" parts. a level or two for them and a fight with Grimlock and his team would've been nice (plus we could see Sludge :D )

    I REALLY want to play as Insecticons in campaign now. I love little errand missions, or non-fighting missions where you complete tasks or stuff like that.

    Shockwave as well, very prominent in the story, but you can't play as him, same with Soundwave (more or less, his level is a cameo really).

    Ignoring the "I want a level/toy/movie/bobblehead/whatever desire" I was satisfied with the extent of the insecticon presence in the game.

    They atleast deserve an escalation map... oh wait, there's only three of them. Hell, why not add Waspinator as a scientist with the heal beam ability.

    Hardshell (Shield)
    Sharpshot (Turret)
    Kickback (Ammo)
    Waspinator (Healing)

    This would be cool... but then again, so would an escalation map for the Dinobots???

    I'd say Kickback, Sharpshot, Hardshell and Shockwave as the fourth since he's their boss.

    Yeah, he is but there's no rule saying they can't use them twice.
