Chop shop is just rumor mill for now, but popular speculation remains that what one person saw as chop shop was actually snapshot right down to the speech pattern.


Yeah, but since RH Shrapnel was "Insecticon", "Sharpshot" hadn't been used as consistently as "Hardshell", so I was just hoping Hasbro would've come up with something better by now, like "Scrap-knell" or, hell, even "Lightning-Bug" would at least tell us who it was. "Sharpshot" is just up there with "toy boat" in terms of the difficulty it gives anyone speaking it, and it sounds so wrong it doesn't even stick in memory, as you observed with "snapshot". That'd be a decent replacement if they lost the rights to Reflector.

Weapon: Cerebro-Shell Launcher
Hardshell is definitely the top pick for me, especially if they keep his powers, but Kickback is a close second (dat exoskeleton!) Sharpshot's alright, and yes, I agree it's not a perfect name, but it could be worse. I wish we could get a better picture, though. This one is really close compared to the others.

I swear, if Hasbro makes figures of Hardshell and Sharpshot, there will be major cult worship action from this guy's house on the release date.

sharpshot? how do you get that from shrapnel how about sharp-metal instead
it sounds way better and it means basically the same thing. of course that name is probably taken as well oh well. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then you know..

Hey it just goes to show you how retarded the whole trademark policies are to begin with. I fail to understand why Hasbro cant use names they used back in the 80's. My guess is they let alot of G1 names expire during the 90's and couldnt get them back because someone else took them. Use it or lose it, I suppose.
