    There must be a huge number of TV shows even some G1 chracters that have avboided representation like the Quintesson crocodile guard, Arcee, and Wreck Gar's wife to name just a few.

    But I was thinking about characters in shows like Transformers Cybertron who never got made - especially the ones who had speaking parts such as Scourge's court of assorted beasts or Signal Lancer.

    We get all this call for G1 and that leads to some really Obscure characters - but if they are going to go obscure by default why not use one of those Scout slots to make Signal Lancer, or some more Cybertron style beasts.

    Not to mention The other Speed=Planet racers or even simple repaints like the vaerious other colours of Energon Terrorcon who never got toys.

    I have to wonder if a classics Windcharger can find a home why not others - we keep getting Animated characters thrown into the mix but there's not so many beasts being made any more I feel it's time for some more.

    And why not some of the ones from Transformers Cybertron ?

    People ask for un-toy-ified G1 characters because there's currently a line for those characters, Generations (and to a lesser extent, the yellow-box line).

    Asking for characters from Cybertron or the Beast Era don't make much sense when there isn't an outlet for those characters.

    I'd love to see Signal Lancer. Generations as far as I know is a home to all Transformers toys, not just Generation 1 style, so I guess it could happen.

    Mostly I'd get it for the sheer humour of a robot who turns into a traffic light.

    Fucking this!

    The fact Signal Lancer had an epic Transformation scene in Galaxy Force makes it even disappointing it never got made. It was so random, yet so epic :D

    I'd love a Sunstorm too. Slipstream as well, though she'd probably need at least a modified Seeker mold.

    I'd love to see a Classics Bulkhead as well and a G1 Sentinel Prime. Zeta Prime and Nova Prime too.

    I thought the whole point of the Generations line was to update different kinds of old characters, it doesn't have to be limited to just G1... Beast Wars/Beast Machines would fit nicely with it and the yellow box line.

    Botanica needs a toy.
