Lesser known characters.
List as many as you can find.
I know both.
Plus, what are your criteria for "lesser known"? Do all the five million Micromasters and Mini-Cons count?
Depends on how many times they have been seen.
Comic only characters.
Any character you want to list that you think only a few might know about.
List all the Micromasters and Mini-Cons if you want.
Your criteria are still problematic.
For someone who has only watched the G1 cartoon, any toys that came afterwards would be "obscure". Including those with high profiles on the comic book, such as Thunderwing, Bludgeon or Nightbeat.
Someone who has only read the comic but never watched the cartoon probably would consider Red Alert as pretty obscure.
If everyone sticks to the thread topic, everything will be fine.
I'm more interested in G1, G2, and the comics. (Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW, ETC) Just post some characters.
Preferably with links.
Not exactly sure how I'm supposed to respond to this topic. Especially since you already posted the obscure transformers website.
Guess I'll just say who my favorite is.
Besides the Optimus's predecessors my favorite obscure transformer would have to be Spanner. Wish we could get a toy of him. Only with a functional bot mode and non-suicidal thoughts.
That busty chick-bot Octane was checking out on the monitor in that one episode.
Hey, you provide your toys' thoughts..
I'd agree with Magnus. You've already posted the OTF website, which covers most of 'em; listing them in a thread seems kinda redundant.
I do think a toy of Scrounge would be amusing, though.
I'm not even sure how you'd do a toy of Spanner; it'd certainly involve a lot of convoluted folding...
And how about the Triumverate? I imagine there's some crossover with Doctor Who fans who'd like a TF that turns into a Dalek...
Lesser known TFs, eh?
Most of the Autobots featured in the third-fourth seasons of G1... god, I can't remember their names, and for the most part, they very rarely get to see much action and speak a lot in order for me to remember them.
All the nameless minicons from Armada.
Flame, Macabre, Trannis, PrimaNova, Rook, and Chameleon
I like that site, found it last night.
That's okay. list your favorite obscure characters too.
Ah, good time
Tell me more...
No love for Emirate Xaaron?

Do Spike, Blurr, Metroplex, Roddy and Max actually count as lesser known..?
By the way, Impactor FTW, whether you consider him 'lesser known' or not.
Depends if it's Impactor or undead Impactor!
Separate names with a comma.
