    The movies had plenty of characters, but most not very important. So this thread is deticated to them.

    Whose your favorite background character in the movies?

    Mine:

    Sideways
    The Constructicons
    Jolt

    You?

    Since I'm only counting characters who didn't really get any spotlight at all, Jolt, Mirage and Long Haul.

    Dino. Sure he may be a Sideswipe "clone" but his design kicks ass and I'd rather have wrist blades over arm swords any day. I still really badly wish they'd make a deluxe. Is it possible we could probably get a new line of movie figures in the future? I know there's the fourth movie and all, so hopefully some characters from previous movies will have their chance to warm the pegs.

    I reckon he and Sideswipe would have made a hilarious double act.

    All of the Transformers apart from Optimus and Bumblebee. The rest were basically background characters.

    Manny's Cousin, Rampage and the Cloverfield Bot.

    Edit: Just found out that the Cloverfield Bot is Devcon. -_-

    Human, I'd say Hardcore Eddie ["DODGING CHURCHES MAN, I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS SHIT" I almost died[/i] suffocated due my laughter in that scene, the dodging churches part just makes me laugh so damn hard].

    Robot, I'd say Devcon or the Arcee Sisters.

    There are some awesome Protoforms that deserve their own movies though:

    - Chicago, when the Wingmen rescue the 'Bots, one Protoform says "One Last Sho--" and raises his gun before being gunned down. Died like a true warrior, Bravo Protoform 091! YOU ARE AWESOME.

    And of course, there are about a hundred scene-stealing Protoforms in the opening in Cybertron:
    - There is a interesting pair in one bridge, one of them has a knife [or is moving like he has one], and the other is fiercely dodging like a damn boss.
    - One of them LEAPS at his enemy and beats him to death with his own fists. Holy Shit.
    - One of them carries a wounded comrade to safety [while four others provide back up].
    - One of them stops mid-way through and stares at the ships flying above [I always wonder if that one is Optimus, since "I saw the Ark leave Cybertron..."].

    Protoforms: Respect the little guys.

    Tough choice. Jolt, Dino and Dev-Con are definitely the top three.

    Fixed. ;)  (Though your point still has some merit. But remember, there are always distinctions between main characters, supporting characters and minor characters, no matter the medium or story.)

    Yes Jolt should have a recognition for helping Optimus saving the day.
