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).
Check out my collection!

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!


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) RiD Grimlock, Hightower and Wedge (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
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.
