    Like the title says.

    I think Bludgeon's never been in the cartoon. I heard from somewhere he would've shown up in season 4 of Animated as a pirate.

    Springer hasn't been in a cartoon since G1.

    Funny you say Bludgeon because I just got his toy and I said to myself "it would be cool if he was actually in a TF show".

    I'd like to see Sunstreaker get a more visible role in a show. I don't recall seeing him get much action in animated form.

    I demand that Erector appear in the next show. Or as the hero of the next movie.

    There's a number of characters from G1 that haven't been seen on TV or in the movies since G1 was canceled in the U.S. Too many for me to list off-hand.

    At last, I've been waiting for a thread like this.

    Sixshot has been in plenty of comics as of late, but he hasn't been resurrected in a televised format since Season Three of Generation One and the Japanese Headmasters Series which were both way back in the late 1980's. Technically, he was a character on Transformers Energon back in the early 2000's, but nothing else since then. I'd really like it if he were brought back for the next Transformers series.

    There are plenty of other characters I could name who haven't been in the lime light for quite some time. Many of the characters from the Japanese Victory and Zone cartoons, save for Grandus, Dai Atlas, and Sky Garry who had rather brief appearences on Transformers Animated, haven't been on screen for a very long time.

    It would certainly be nice if Hasbro took a break from Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and the rest of the core Transformers cast to focus on some of the unsung, if not totally obscure Transformers for a change. But seeing how Optimus and the gang are the main cash cows for the overall franchise, it seems quite unlikely that they'll be upstaged any time soon.

    This list would be massive.

    Too many of the characters were never fleshed out.

    That's the problem when you only care about pushing the merchandise to make money. They didn't care about their product. Meaning they don't care about you.
    So, what did you expect?

    By the same token, Id also like to see entirely new characters, rather than the rehashing of the (albeit large and full of potential) catalog of previously established characters.
