    Just wondering what characters you feel cheated that a toy was never made for them and what characters deserve a chance at new mold of them?

    I was also going to say Jhiaxus, since he was a major character in the G2 comic. Perhaps Hook, Line and Sinker from the G1 comic? After those guys, I would also say Arcee. While not an obscure character, she certainly deserves a toy, and continues to be screwed out of one, latest example being Animated.

    Rack 'n Ruin
    Impactor
    Straxus
    Jhiaxus
    Emirate Xaaron
    Grindcore (IDW)
    Hook, Line and Sinker
    Sentinel Prime

    New mold wise:
    Jumpstarters
    Roadbuster
    Whirl (Heck, technically just add more articulation to the existing mold, its still crazy enough to work)
    Sandstorm
    Blitzwing
    Springer
    Broadside (Can you tell I like the Wreckers much?)

    Another vote for Straxus, Jhiaxus, Sentinel Prime, and Impactor. Paddles is a great choice too. I'll also add:

    Devcon
    Scrounge

    As for characters that deserve a new mold.... hell, too many to list. But I guess purely based on my own preference I would say:

    Chromedome
    Trailbreaker
    Hoist
    Gears
    Reflector
    Fort Max
    The Insecticons
    Seaspray
    Most of the G2 original characters, starting with Electro.

    I dunno about 'obscure,' but I'd really like to see some of the Japanese leaders get updated toys. Star Saber, Dessaras, Dai Atlas, etc. You could make a decent Star Saber out of a repainted Classics Jetfire, but I'd rather see them get new molds.

    I'd also love a new mold for Bludgeon, but the movie repaint works for me.

    edit - THUNDERWING. I can use Energon Scorponok and Shockblast as their G1 selves, I've got Skyquake and Ratbat and all sorts of obscure leaders, but a new Thunderwing is conspicuously absent from the Decepticon roster.

    We need a Turbo Master HyperDrive to be the leader before Botcon Thunderclash.
    And another vote for the Wreckers/Mayhem Attack Squad...and pretty much all Simon Furman's characters... Death's Head ect..
    EDIT: AND SIXSHOT!!!

    Oh yeah, definitely him. Even if he only had one mode, I'd buy it if it was faithful to his G1 bot mode.

    Just about any Marvel Transformers character, be it US or UK. Also more G2 please. The lack of G2 makes my heart ache :cry

    I'd luv to get a Devcon figure... :) 

    How's about it Hasbro? Will the following concept ever see the light as a TFCC exclusive? :wink:

    A proper transforming Bludgeon with a proper skullsamurai head.
    I'd even settle for a head made by a 3rd party for that little Unicron figure.

    I've always had a strange fascination and desire to own a toy of Signal Lancer from the end of Galaxy Force. The design should be simple enough to make into a scout or something...
