    G1: Powermaster Optimus Prime. I didn't agree with bringing Optimus back, but seeing the Powermaster version in action would have been pretty sweet.

    BW/BM: I honestly don't know the toyline well enough to comment.

    RiD: There's really no one I would add.

    Armada: Skywarp, for lack of any other non-show characters.

    Energon: The non-show toys should be grateful they weren't in this crap.

    Cybertron: Armorhide. But he might just be too cool for tv.

    Movie: Arcee. Because then I'd be able to justify buying the toy.

    G1: Runabout and Runamuck. I know they were in the comics, but I can't remember if they were ever in the TV series or not.

    I've never seen Beast Wars/Beast Machines, RID, or Energon. So I can't say who I felt should have appeared in those shows.

    Armada: I've seen the show, just don't have the toys. However, it would have been nice if they had Soundwave. Either that, or have the other Seekers to go with Starscream.

    Cybertron: Armorhide would have been sweet.

    Okay... I didn't know. My brother probably wouldn't remember either.

    So, I guess for a character that wasn't in G1 but should have been... I guess I'd have to go with Powermaster Optimus Prime.

    None. If anything I'd take characters out of the cartoons.

    BW had it made, a small cast left lots for character development. ACE had new chracters practicaly every other episode. G1 suffered the most with too many characters.

    G1: Not that many options in the first place, but I like the suggestion of Powermaster Prime, so I'll steal that answer.

    BW: Scarem, Scarem, and more Scarem.

    BM: Buzzsaw. Of all the unused beasts, I actually kinda liked his design and if they kept some sort of connection to his BW Predacon roots in the show, could have been an interesting character to have around. But then, anything beats Nightscream...

    RID: Bruticus. We got so few Predacons as it was, one more couldn't hurt.

    Armada: Skywarp, for lack of decent alternatives.

    Energon: Grimlock and Swoop are tempting, but it's unfair to inflict that that POS onto them. :lol 

    Cybertron: If he wasn't just a throwaway repaint from the end of the series, Repugnus could have been neat. Otherwise, Armorhide for sure.

    Alright, I'll bite...

    G1: Roadbuster. I had him as a kid because I thought he looked awesome, but was dissapointed when I found out he wasn't in the show.

    BW: Magnaboss. They should have at least included the combiners in the show... well Magnaboss at least... because combiners rock and these combiners double rock.

    BM: Forget his name off the top of my head, but the snake guy would have been cool...

    RID: Bruticus, because a crazy three-headed Cerberus dog left over from BM would have been cool to have in such a cluster-f*** of a show too.

    Armada: Skywarp... there weren't too many non-show Transformers in this line, but he was definently awesome looking. However, the coolness factor probably wouldn't have been as great if he'd actually been in the show considering the characterization for some of those characters.

    Energon: As someone else said the non-show toys were probably very happy they weren't a part of this, but if I had to add one (well, two... they go together IMPO) it would be Sharkticon and Slugslinger. They were just so awesome I never understood why they weren't in the show...

    Cybertron: Excellion (the US Hot Shot repaint), because I just loved his bio. Snake-Eyes Transformer for the win!

    Movie: Wreckage... of course he would have been a mindless sack of crap like half the Decpeticons so who cares?

    G1: I'll cast my vote for Powermaster Op too. I hate RoOP, but if they'd at least had him in a different body and his life tied to a human I would have bought into it a little more.

    BW: Scarem or INJECTOR! Mwahahahahaha!

    BM: Night Viper, Buzzsaw, or the Blastcharge, Spystreak, Scavenger and Mirage Drones

    RiD: Nightcruz!

    Armada: Yep, Skywarp. Not many options save for the Beasts in there.

    Energon: Sharkticon

    Cybertron: Armorhide

    Movie: Wreckage or Incinerator. I know Incinerator's not out yet, but how cool would it be too see that design with the blade hands in CGI on-screen?

    Oh yes, for the 07 movie, it would have been sweet to see Arcee in the film.

    For G1, it would be Nightbeat. He had so much potential as a TV character.

    For Beast Wars, I'd pick Razorbeast. He's kicking ass in the comics (except for last issue.)

    G1: Powermaster Prime, for the above reasons.

    BW: I hate BW.

    BM: See above, but replace W with M.

    RiD: Didn't see much of RiD, and Magnus was already there. So I'm good.

    Armada: Overload. I know he was there, but he needs to be a character. With something to say. Or a proper introduction.

    Energon: Sharkticon. Looks like a ninja. Would've been cool to see him there.

    Cybertron: Downshift. Carry him over from Energon Downshift, and make him as badass as he looks.

    Movie: Wreckage. Move Bonecrusher into another fight, and have Prime have a sword fight with Wreckage.

    Okay, here's my picks on the shows that I watched or know something about.

    G1: Piranacon, because the Seacons are awesome!

    BW: Grimlock, because it would've been cool to see him fight alongside Dinobot.

    Cybertron: Smokescreen. Just because. :wink: 

    Movie: Arcee, 'cause she's hot!

    It's tough to say what non show characters I'd like to see as there's lots.

    For G1 I'd love to see Powermaster Prime lead a small group of Powermasters against Darkwing and Dreadwind. I'd also like to see it continue with G2 Megs.

    For Beast Wars I would have had the characters that had Transmetal toys but never turned TM in the show actually change(Rhinox, Wasipinator) and have Terrorsaur revived as a TM.

    Beast Machines I would forgo if they changed the ending.

    RiD should have had those jet twins that came with Towline and Skid-Z. And Bruticus as well. The Predacons/Decepticons were severely lacking in that show.

    Armada should have brought in Overload as an ACTUAL character instead of just a part of Jetpants Supershoulders Optimus Prime.

    Energon had a LOT of good ones. Tied between Sharkticon and Slugslinger.

    Cybertron did NOT need new characters but I guess Armorhide.

    Since the movie's sequel has Arcee I will forgo that for Wreckage.
