    I was looking through my G1 figures and having watched most episodes here recently, were Pipes, Swerve or Tailgate in any episodes?

    I can tell you at least that Swerve was in Five Faces of Darkness. I forget which part, but it was when he and the other minibots were trying to mess with Trypticon.

    I believe all three were in FFoD.

    Pipes was also in FFOD. He's who lead the minibots (Warpath, Powerglide, Outback, etc.) when trying to defend Teletran-1 from Trypticon.

    Pipes also appeared in Forever is a Long Time Coming.

    Off the top of my head, here's some characters that were never in the US show but had toys:

    Whirl
    Roadbuster
    Topspin
    Twin Twist
    the Omnibots
    the Powerdashers
    the Micromasters
    the Pretenders
    Junior Headmasters
    Junior Targetmasters
    the Duocons*
    Squawktalk
    Beastbox
    Grandslam
    Raindance
    Quickswitch
    ...quite a few more I believe, but it's early for me and my brain isn't working yet as I just got up.

    [* Duocon Flywheels did appear in the Season 4 intro.]

    Hubcap was never in FFoD, or anywhere else in the G1 cartoon - but he may have (unintentionally) cropped up for a single frame in the movie - where a yellow Cliffjumper is shown in the acid cauldron scene. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubcap_%28Transformers%29)

    It's certainly a theory that I like.

    Anything after 1987 didn't appear in the cartoon.
    Buzzsaw was not in the cartoon all that much, Skids was in one or two episodes,

    Yeah, I was surprised to see Swerve in that epsiode too...and I believe we knew saw him again despite the cartoon showing that he was alive after Trypticon's attack. Somehow I got the impression that Pipes was the most popular minibot in Season 3.

    He was, for sure... I bet he got more airtime than any other minibot (except for Outback and Wheelie).
