    So who is your favorite obscure Transformers character?? Any Universe or story arc... due to the character, toy or history. What sparks your interest in liking the lesser known of your choice?
    I have to go with Pounce and Wingspan (Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingspan_(Transformers) Pounce - Teletraan I: the Transformers Wiki - War for Cybertron, Transformers 3, Toys ) from the G1 Universe. I like the idea behind these two being spy clones for the Decepticons as they stood out in there minor appearance back in the G1 days. They were an early addition to my collection back in the 80's. Those colors just popped for me, with the white and blue bodies, MAGENTA wings and legs.... FUN stuff! I also have a soft spot for rub-signs.

    Scrounge, Moonracer, Impactor, Devcon, Metalhawk.

    Since Generations throws in the odd character in the toyline, I'm hoping for some more obscure characters there.
    I want Generations Impactor, then Spotlight Impactor, no wait: substitute TF ongoing with Impactor ongoing.

    That dude at Maccadam's Old Oil House who transforms into a piano will always be a favorite.

    I also like Roadbuster, the Decepticon Pretender Monsters and a lot of the Decepticon Micromasters, such as Skystalker, Blackout/Spaceshot, the Air Strike Patrol, the Military Patrol and the Battle Squad.

    Hubcap. He has maybe ten seconds of screen time and maybe no lines at all, but he's a Cliffjumper redeco whose tech spec was pure win. "Has everybody's friendship, nobody's trust" is something I'll always remember. The ever-present affable weasel, the kind of guy you're close friends with in your years at university. I always thought that was inspired characterization for a guy with no impact on the show.
