To me, a character that stands out as interesting is someone you can work into a good emotional story. Some of the tech specs from throughout the existence of Transformers stand out above the others, and I think one of them is Hound's. Hound's fascination with humans and his adopting of Earth as the planet he considers home represents something a lot of people can relate to - feeling like you've come home to a place you've never been to. When you find comraderie and common ground among a group of strangers, or in a place you're new to. This is a theme well represented in movies, such as "Avatar" and of course all the movies Avatar ripped off. Just because it's been done many times before doesn't mean it isn't a very relatable and understandable experience. So to Hound, Earth is Pandora. It's a place where he instantly is drawn into the culture and feels he is a kindered spirit. Ever since I was a kid, I've loved that about Hound. I thought it was interesting and inspired writing. They don't make tech specs like they used to, that much is for sure - but here's hoping for the future. Honorable mention for Grapple, an artist at heart embroiled in an unending war in which his structures are forever being destroyed. For Trailbreaker, whose lack of self esteem is something plenty of people can relate to. And Thundercracker, whose reservations about the righteousness of the Decepticon cause is only overshadowed by his desire to be on the winning team. There was great, great stuff in those old tech specs and profiles. So, if there are characters to whom you specifically relate to or whom you find particularly fascinating, please post your thoughts.
