    On the tail end of news about the movie, I'm wondering which characters from any cartoon or movie never go released in the US? I'm talking mainstream so deluxes/voyagers/ultra/leader.

    Main characters. . .
    DOTM Soundwave (I feel he got enough screen time)

    Supporting cast. . .
    DOTM Que
    DOTM Leadfoot (WTF Target?!? You've got your logo on this toy!)

    Guest appearances. . .
    G1 Arcee and the other girls. . .

    What else?

    So no turd parties.

    There should be tons. Classics line and Alts/BT alone there are tons.

    Edit: movie toys only?

    Animated:

    Blackout
    Wingblade Prime
    Hydrodive Bumblebee
    Thundercracker
    Fugitive Wasp

    Either brand new toys or improvements\remoulds\repaints of show characters via another toy. And a bunch of straight repaints from other figures.

    ROTF

    That Megatron voyager repaint multipack with some of the legends constructicons and that Ravage.

    Classics and Alternators/Binaltech doesn't count. There was no show that went along with it.

    If you consider each and every cartoon & movie to be a giant commercial, then was was advertised but never released?

    Is this the right category?
    Blackout - appearance
    Wingblade Prime - appearance
    Hydrodive Bumblebee - appearance? which episode?
    Thundercracker - supporting or appearance?
    Fugitive Wasp - supporting or appearance? We kinda got him in the form of Waspinator.

    Not sure what ROTF set you are talking about but it's all repaints. . .

    Beast Machines Botanica, but then again they never had plans to make a toy of her. I do wonder how well a figure of her would sell.

    Some people are mad about rts some are made about dotm and some are mad about the fe cuts. I am still pissed off about the animated line being cut. I want those so bad.

    Animated does sound like the line that got cut off the most. I wonder if they had any other molds in place. Wished that Botcon could have used the Blackout and Wingblade Prime mold last year.

    Demand was probably low. It was competing with bigger names like Universe 2.0, Movie, numerous Japanese imports etc.

    It certainly makes me think about the smaller releases or cancellations recently as well. Some had to go. Maybe not forever. I'm still hoping for classics frenzy and rumble.

    In G1, you've got Devcon from "The Gambler" and Alpha Trion from a whole mess of episodes. Unless you want to count the PVC Alpha Trion. Or the Botcon Alpha Trion. But they didn't come out till years after the cartoon was over.
