Hardshell huh? Guess they didn't have the rights for Bombshell. Well, an individual Insecticon General is pretty sweet whatever the variation of the name. And he F's up Bulkhead pretty damn good too.

So was it only one Insecticon that spoke at the end of Armada? I forget and this would explain that if it was.

Bye bye Bombshell, hello Hardshell.

Apparently the creative team of Prime promised that Miko would undergo major character development during the course of this season. They also promised that the 'T' four-parters would have long lasting consequences for the rest of the season. This does not bode well for Bulkhead. On the other hand, nice to see a Con that's less likely to jump ship this time. Really, between fatalities and treason it's a wonder that Megatron even has three (four?) officers left. (then again Knock Out is giving us that shifty look)

Some are thinking that might be David Kaye voicing Hardshell (as David Kaye is confirmed as having a voice role at some point in this show).

So, the insceticons are a formidable foe to take down Bulkhead. Eagerly awaiting next Saturday.

I think it's because Hardshell is some sort of "general" insecticon. Several parts of him look different than other bugs and he talks, and Megs named him.

Hardshell. Not a bad name. Yes, I think he might be a special Insceticon. In fact, because Hardshell might become a major character, so! Maybe a Hardshell figure. 8) :grin:

I'm pretty sure I heard multiple insecticons speak at the end of Armada. And Hardshell has been the replacement name for Bombshell for quite a while now. Atleast since the G1 insecticons where reissued as ToysRus exclusives. In fact as far as I know, the only insecticon who still has his name is Kickback. Shrapnel is now Sharpshot.

With this show? I wouldn't put it past them. It really would be a big turn in things though. And you could only imagine how much that would effect Miko.

Well, they've already killed off Cliffjumper, Skyquake, and Breakdown. Who knows, maybe he'll go down and Whelljack will take his place, or he might go into stasis lock or something.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the fourth relic will be destroyed in this episode. Simply because the last time we had a relic chase, in "Operation: Bumblebee," the 'bots got one, the 'cons another, and the third was destroyed. So far the score in this one is:

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.
