    I thought since in the other threads fellow board members kept discussing what characters they'd like to see more of under the new writing teams, this would be a good thread to toss them all in.

    State the characters you'd like to see, and hopefully why :)  Least that way this doesn't turn into a thread where you just toss in names.

    Me, I hope to see more of Punch/Counterpunch or Doubledealer. With the greater political intrigue, I think it'd be interesting for these two characters to get some spotlight. Both being spies of sorts and peddling information to certain key leaders, lots of storyline potential there.

    I wouldn't mind seeing punch/counterpunch getting a storyline.

    I'm pretty sure doubledealer won't be making any appearances outside of flashbacks due to him getting smashed to bits in his spotlight issue. I would love to see more of banzaitron though.

    I'd love to see the IDW version of Star Saber, and I'd love to see Jackpot get more characterisation outside of just being a background character.

    Plus give us more Brainstorm IDW, you know you want to.

    Oh that's right. I forgot Doubledealer got killed off :p 

    I'd love to see Star Saber as well, and the Brain Masters! Would be awesome actually if they were the Knights of Cybertron given they were all swordsmen :) 

    That said, would be nice to see more exposure for the Japanese series characters. We've seen their potential if they're handled right, i.e. Overlord.

    Yeah I'd love to see the brainmasters featuring in the comics too. Or at least Gripper/Blacker. He was hardcore!

    My favorite underused Autobot Combiner guys:
    Sky Dive
    Lightspeed
    First Aid

    The Deluxe Insecticons. Especially Chop Shop and maybe Venom.

    Pretender Sky High based on his DW MtMtE bio.


    -ZacWilliam, would also have said Grotusque if he hadn't died.

    Oh and the Kronoform watch bot. Just cause.

    Ha! I'd love to see him get his own spotlight! Maybe make him like a Cybertronian version of Calandar Man?

    I'd like to see Lockdown again. As cool as it was to see him in the Drift mini, he was very much a non-entity to the story.

    Also like to know what Bludgeon and the Monstructor-six have been up to all this time. That's alot of super dangerous dudes cowboying around, not answering to anybody.

    His package (in fact all the transforming watch packages) say "Transforms from Robot to Time Machine." I'd love someone to take that literally.

    -ZacWilliam, they could be a crack team working for the same entity as Heinrad...

    Deathcobra as he only appeared in one ep of zone before dying it would be nice to see him elsewhere

    And of course, Black Shadow

    Sadly Straxus is dead, he was part of the DU and apparently died at the end of revelations along with Grindcore, but if galvatron ever wanted to bring him back....

    I want to know where they put thunderwings corpse, maybe they could transplant more characters from other continuities into the comics like they did with Lockdown

    Speaking of super dangerous dudes, I'd like to see the IDW Monsterbots again. So far they've been portrayed as mercenaries, but the old TV commercials made it seem like they were an experiment gone wrong, much like the Pretender Monsters. Would be interesting if they were somehow connected wouldn't it?

    Even though he is apparently dead, I would love to see IDW's take on Straxus. Although at the moment I'd like to see what happens to Impactor and Guzzle after they depart at the end of LSOTW. Those two shouldn't just be limited to that miniseries.

    Well Grotesque bought the big one in the Chaos series, so he won't be back, but I've a feeling that Repugnus and Doublecross will be popping up again soon in the MTMTE series. But thats just a theory.

    I too think more Lockdown would be great.

    The Seacons, seriously one of my favourite combiner teams where the hell are they IDW!?

    Also would like to see a Blackout/Grindor based character, like we saw in TF:A.

    And more Impactor please, was awesome in LSotW.
