About the "Insecticon-like" character in the IDW stories

Motto: "A mountain with a wolf atop it stands that much taller."
Weapon: Retractable Mecha-Fangs
As to the "Insecticon-like" Titan Hunter from the IDW comics with a design based on Prime Hardshell, is he a singular character, or are there multiples of him, akin to the Vehicons also found under Lockdown's command? I'm trying to figure out if I need only one of him on my "Classics/NeoG1/IDW" shelves or a whole swarm (of three or so. Let's not get crazy here. ;) ).

I think it was just a fanwinky nodd to fans of Transformers Prime who are reading the book like how the Vehicons from the same show are added in.

I wish we had a Voyager or at least a large Deluxe of TFP Hardshell, as I would not only buy a couple for my screened TF Prime collection but also one for my Classics/Neo/IDW colection.

Come on Hasbro, do us all a favour!

Heck, I would even consider an upscaled KO of Hardshell! ;)

I thought I was the only one whining about this. :PRAY:

Here's hoping, since Thrilling 30 is IDW-based, that the toyline lasts long enough for there to be, some time in the future, the Deluxe-or-Voyager Hardshell we Prime fans deserve.

Or, even better, do Generations: Prime and fix Airachnid

So far I've only seen one. And I guess there is only one.
