Man, if we get Bombshell and Shrapnel to go with Kickback, I just might throw out my FP Insecticons.

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!

Great news they'll be in the game.

Even if they are generic clones, they'll probably still have annoying oneliners to bug the hell out of a player. Like the cloakers in WFC.

I think a toy version would be way to soon. I needz a WFC Arcee first, please Hasbro.

He looks proper hench and hard as diamond. An absolute destroyer. It'd be hilarious if in the game he was no taller than Rumble or Frenzy.

First Kickback, then Chop Shop*, and now Hardshell. That makes three named members Aligned Insecticons thus far. They're starting to feel less like a swarm and more like an army. Cool.


* - Chop Shop was seen and named in an exclusive gameplay demonstration shown at the High Moon Studios booth at BotCon 2012.

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

I'm actually a much bigger fan of their E-Hobby clone army counterparts and their names. Salvo, Zaptrap and the all-time greatest TF name ever...SHOTHOLE!

There's 2/3. I certainly hope we will get a Shrapnel to go along with Bombshell and Kickback.

C'mon Hasbro, please make this into a toy (and Shrapnel too).
If anyone has a TFSS Breakdown they don't want, PM me please. I would love to take him off your hands.

A more likely reason is to be more PC with their names. Names like Bombshell and Shrapnel recall the situation in Afghanistan and Iraq with all the bombings.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

There is a DC villain called Shrapnel. It might also fall into an issue of avoiding calling it "Decepticon Shrapnel". The Robot Heroes sharpnel was just called insecticon. I think Sharpshot was an odd choice, but I pretty much just call them all insecticons anyway.
