    We've seen him in vehicle mode ONCE in the very first episode, but only that. On top of it, we've NEVER seen his transformation sequence.

    Unless I'm mistaken, can anyone correct me?

    Leaves more room for his zany hi-jinx.

    I have to admit though, it's nice to have at least one character that doesn't transform every episode just for the sake of transforming, especially if he's busy in his robot mode. Being a medic and (temporarily) the only bot there that can maintain their equipment probably requires him to be in robot mode more often than not since he's not out in the field. I'm sure we'll get to see him transform more later on though.

    His swords and personality make up for it.

    Yes we have.

    The very first time we see his robot mode is just after he trasnforms coming out of the groundbridge with the others after Cliffjumper is captured and killed.

    His character and the plot around him simply gets in the way of his need to transform often.

    Doesn't matter all that much, since the transformation animations go by so qickly, it's hardly worth making note of it.

    They say that they put a lot of work into these transformation animations. I really wish they'd slow them down just a bit so we could get a better look at them.

    Since he stays at the base a lot, he doesn't really have a need to transform.

    It's reminding me of Beast Wars Rhinox. Always back at base in robot mode, spending less time in alt mode than the others. Comes out of the base when needed for scientific missions or combat support.

    When they've designed the deluxe figure, we will probably see him transform more similarly, like we are now seeing Starscream's Transformation more clearly.

    I'm sure we'll have plenty of chances to see him transform yet, Just like we haven't seen if he has any -Ranged- weapons in the show yet.
