    Loved the cast, but fellas, how can you still hate the Armada Insecticons, if this episode clearly explained that the bugs have levels of ability and strength? If even one Insecticon exists that can be considered the baddest of them all, then obviously the other ones are weaker than he is. If they were only slightly less powerful than Hardshell, then they'd have mutinies on their hands every few days. Hardshell must be extremely stronger than the rest of the fodder, and its possible that the one that Megatron fought in Crossfire (and Arcee in Cybertron) were actually candidates for the next leader-class.

    I think this episode cleared Armada's concept of weaker Insecitcons, by indicating that they do have variety in strength and rank :) 

    Vangelus, I love the new "eating my chip" timer, lol

    One thing I like to add is that Tox-En is kinda like Kryptonite to Transformers. Both are green, radioactive, and cause extreme pain that can result in death.

    I've heard some people speculate that the "T" stands for the four episodes occurring at the same Time

    That's one hell of a huge stretch to equate slightly varying levels of strength to explaining away how in one episode, every Insecticon could be blasted out of the air by any character's blaster while in every other appearance blasters are shown to have little to no effect.

    If that works for you or anyone else, that's great. But IMO its giving an inch and taking a lightyear. No amount of apologism is going to make me change my mind that Armada was a subpar episode and the way the Insecticons were handled was utter dog shit.

    Thankfully every other writer has understood why Insecticons are awesome. :)

    I interpreted Hardshells 'war paint' was scaring from other insecticons during his fights to establish dominance. I like the idea what while everything else is going on the insecticons are in their hive tearing into each other like a bunch of animals trying to become the alpha.

    I'm totally with you Vangelus. This show has done enough that I am legitimately concerned when characters get into a scrape. I highly doubt Bulkhead will die but man, it wouldn't be impossible for him to become one with the Allspark. Especially since Breakdown's extremely unexpected death.

    Tox-En kinda reminds me more of Tiberium from C&C, more than Kryptonite.
    Kryptonite doesn't give off green smoke!

    I've seen it mentioned that Hardshell's paintings are tally marks. Doesn't seem that far off, I actually kind of dig the concept.

    I actually think the name Hardshell fits this version of the character better than Bombshell would. He's proven that he can take a lot of damage and puts up one hell of a fight against Bulkhead.

    I hope the 'T' thing wasn't a hint at the ... termination of a certain character.

    Especially one I really prefer to some others.
