The Autobots got the phase generator.
Starscream got the Apex Armor.
The Decepticons have the resonance gun.
So it's about time for a "No MacGuffin, no winner" scenario. Though the writers seem to love playing with the audience's expectations.
That's what I thought too, but I honestly can't say. For story-writing purposes it would make sense to let the Cons get it simply because when you introduce a new character you always want to play them up for all they're worth. Notice how when Knock Out and Breakdown were introduced they took on four Bots with relative ease, yet in later episodes they have a markedly lower success rate. From a writer's point of view, you want the character to leave an impact on the audience and make it clear that this new character is a serious contender. Considering that Hasbro seems to have plans for Hardshell (to sell toys) it wouldn't surprise me to see him coming out on top.
