The official Transformers facebook page has revealed Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's Insecticon Hardshell! BotCon 2012 revealed a Deluxe Class toy version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Insecticon Kickback. Is there a possibility Hardshell will receive a figure as well, and what of Shrapnel? Take a look below.

It's Insecticon time here at Cyber Mondays. Check out this exclusive screenshot of HARDSHELL from the upcoming game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Does anyone have a big can of bug spray?

NICE!!!! I think with this we can assume that Kickback will be in the game, before I passed him off as a generic Insecticon. First Kickback, then (Hasbro trademark free post) Bombshell, please please please show Shrapnel soon.

Additional: Anyone else get the feeling that they were included to combat Fansproject's Insecticon homages?

With a Kickback toy coming up, I'm pleased to hear that Bombshell (Hardshell, whatever) and ( :PRAY: ) Shrapnel (Sharpshot's a lame name) are making appearances as well. =P~ I just hope they will be actual characters with lines and roles instead of being generic enemies the Autobots must mow down.

Maybe because he's not Bombshell...

His name is Hardshell in TF Prime too.

Hasbro lost the trademark to "Bombshell" and "Shrapnel" prior to 2008. The TRU Universe rerelease renamed them Hardshell and Sharpshot respectively.

Hardshell is a decent name...for the Four Star Bombshell remolded into a scorpion, since its shell looks tougher. Seeing the face on the bug in the game, somehow I just can't accept him being named Hardshell. Thankfully, TF Prime Hardshell has a different face.

Any idea who they lost the trademark to? I know Mattel has Shrapnel since they made a toy of the evil general going by that name in one ep of "Brave and the Bold", but I haven't seen any toy called Bombshell lately. Maybe just the name of an accessory in some pricey military line?

I love the fact, just for kicks basically, the designer decided to give him a knight helmet, it's so out of place yet so awesome! :lol:

Would you rather have him be stiff as a board? you try and animated a bulky model like that and not have any of the limbs clip together, not that easy, and the animations'll look terrible.

Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

I think you might just be right, his constant complaining about anything almost validates that. :lol:

I really hope we get a figure of him. I seriously just want as many insecticons as possible. It'd be the first bunch of TFs i've actually considered troop building.

As for buddy's remark about the clipping: You know, hes right. Its actually pretty bad in the sense that, in motion, it might kill the illusion of a solid figure. It LOOKS amazing, but I'm with buddy on this. If I were modelling, even if it took me that much more time in months or whatever, I don't think I could pass this model due to the obvious clipping (mostly just in the shoulder, the wrists are passable).

ANYWAY, other than that, did I say how awesome he looks?

Dude, don't be crazy. haha. You need as many different insecticons as possible, like a plague. And the FP ones are sick, Hasbros' don't compare to the FP ones, even if they look good conceptually. The FP toys will always be superior.

In game he looks perfect! I'll wait until SDCC to get my hopes up for a figure. But if I recall Sharpshot is in the game as well. Someone who had a chance to review it said he talks with his same last syllable impediment.

Doesn't matter how you slice the bread, I want a big ol' slice of FOC Hardshell!
