Has anyone noted the absence of Insecticons while Shockwave introduces the "ultimate Autobot hunter" to his liege, Megatron? It didn't occur to me until now that there isn't one among them until now--we only see Megatron, Knock Out, Soundwave, Starscream and three or so Vehicons (cars, not jets) standing/sitting opposit of Shockwave and the Predacon. What happened to the Insecticons? I wonder if we're seeing the introduction of the Predacons because of Airachnid and her strong connection to [the Insecticons]. If she does indeed join the Autobots, her defection would be a tremendous blow to the Decepticons as she alone would be in a position to turn things upside down. Should she continue what she started before stasis, she could bring down the Nemesis, limiting Megatron and his forces to their alternate modes and Ground Bridging, not to mention giving the Autobots some much need firepower or at least foot soldiers. A downed Nemesis could also explain why the Decepticons are on Cybertron and not Earth.
