Shame it's not the same scale as FoC Kickback. Maybe (hopefully) there will be a Deluxe version.

Yeah the prime insecticons are kinda beefy.

In order to be in scale, Insecticons would need a toy bigger than a Voyager. The average Insecticon is much bigger than Optimus. The next best thing would be a Voyager.

The Commander Hardshell looks great, though. Now, gimmie the pics of Trailcutter.

What Deluxe? He doesn't have a Deluxe.

I meant that comment in the assumption of one being made. Sorry if I raised your hopes slightly.

No tatoos = generic Insecticon, not Hardshell. :-B

might be worth getting as a troop builder -a lot of the insecticons were smaller than the 3 named ones -i presume they were little more than drone level in the brains department -a deluxe size would be nice but these would also be useful for the smaller dumb ones -also ive been doing a lot of con troop building with vechicons so some bugs would be a nice change of pace

Commander scale figure? :shock: Does that mean like Predaking big, or does it mean Cybervers Commander big?

All of the Insecticons are equally giant sized and of the same level of sentience.

By his comment about the THREE named ones, I think chaosmage may be referring to the G1 trio, since outside of "Hardshell" I don't believe there were any other named insecticons in the Prime series, were there?

As I recall though even in the G1 anime all of them were roughly the same size... *shrug*

Either way it's a nice little design. I like it.
Hope they do put the facial scars on a deluxe or voyager though, if one is made.

Maybe he's referring to the IDW insecticons... Those were the best insecticons, as a "plague", and seemed to come in varying sizes and forms... We need some of those insecticons, they were the most awesome imo. I take figures from all continuities and merge them into whatever suits my needs, so that might be what others are doing.

In the cartoon, no. but in the FOC game, Hardshell was among Sharpshot and Kickback as the only named ones, but by the time of the Prime cartoon, Hardshell looks like everyone else instead of having his own unique body and size. ;)

The 1984-1987 G1 cartoon wasn't an anime.

I want a voyager Hardshell almost as much as I want a voyager Shockwave. It looks like we may be getting a Shockwave so maybe there's still hope for this...

Hmm. My research shows that the last time a toy called just Insecticon got released was 2010, so maybe they lost the name? Or the tattoos were outside the paint budget. Either way, I'm buying the hell out of it to make my insecticon army.
