    Hound and Trailbreaker haven't gotten the love they deserve.

    Windcharger was always a favorite. I think He was featured in 1 episode, and didn't see much action aside from that.

    G1 Hound and G1 Mirage. They seemed like great characters from the start until they were phased out in mid-season 2 and never got much attention or had popularity either.

    Loved Brawn and Windcharger. They did get quite a bit of screen time and I loved it every time.

    I had a soft spot for Skids when I was a kid. Dunno why but he really never got any screen time. I don't even think he spoke a line in the two episodes he was in.

    In the episode "Quest for Survival", didn't he say one thing? I think he said "Insecticide?" while being repaired by either Ratchet or Hoist, I haven't watched the episode in a while but he did say something in that episode.

    I would have loved to see the deluxe insecticons too. Also Whirl and Roadbuster.
    For the ones that made the show, I always wanted more Frenzy and Buzzsaw

    the first two seasons, almost everyone got some good screen time. Only few I can think of that really didn't get much love were Windcharger, Gears, Trailbreaker, Thundercracker and Skywarp. The rest all seemed like they at least got a few "moments"

    Skywarp and Thundercracker were both featured heavily in quite a few episodes. The one for TC that shines is the one where they are trying to build a gun to focus the energy of the crystal in the Incan pyramid or whatever...

    Yeah, "Fire of the Mountain" was one of my favorite episodes! Season 1 was good because it was a smaller cast, so most Decepticons got some screen time since there were only 10 (13 if you count Reflector), but aside the "Fire on the Mountain", SW and TC were just background thugs and especially since season 2 started, those guys barely had any speaking lines.

    Hound by a country mile.

    Was so sad to see his appearances trail off into almost nothing by season 2.
