I really hope they find a way to incorporate the Insecticons into the show, that Kickback design is pure win!

This particular body of text from Derrick has certainly gotten me hyped:

Derrick Wyatt wrote: Other than that you can expect to see the Chosen One face off against the great Decepticon General of Destruction in a desperate battle where the young leader is hopelessly out gunned. You will see Autobot scientists, under orders from the Elite Guard, conduct a high risk experiment to merge Decepticon technology into the bodies of Autobot twins. Witness the traitor on Cybertron stop at nothing to destroy anyone who tries to get word of his treachery to the Autobot High Council. Meanwhile the poor bot who is being hunted as a traitor will see his luck go from bad to worse, and then things really get ugly. Autobots we are close to will be forced to relive painful memories of their past. Both Friends and foes will return. You will see characters from nearly every previous Transformers series. There will be more new characters than I am physically able to draw in time to meet my deadlines!

I think it's pretty obvious which characters he's referring to in this paragraph. Most of them, not all of them, I mean.

Like the "Chosen One" could be Rodimus Prime and the "Decepticon General of Destruction" could be Strika. The "Autobot scientists" are definitely Wheeljack and Perceptor (and maybe Red Alert), which would make the "Autobot twins" Jetfire and Jetstorm. The "traitor on Cybertron" is obviously Shockwave/Longarm (Prime), and the "poor bot who is being hunted as a traitor" has gotta be Wasp, and when "things really get ugly", that might mean he'll become Waspinator. The "Autobots we are close to" may be Optimus, Bumblebee, and Ratchet. The "friends" could be the Dinobots and the Elite Guard, and the "foes" could be all the Decepticons from seasons one and two, including Soundwave, and maybe some human villains.
