    Out of all the Characters who have been forgotten in past episodes, who do you think deserves development the most? We all know Arcee, Bulkhead, and Starscream won't be in this poll. So, out of all the characters on this list, who is in urgent need of some attention and spotlight?

    Optimus Prime
    Megatron
    Bumblebee
    Breakdown
    Ratchet
    Knockout
    Airachnid
    Soundwave
    Other (Please specify)

    Bumblebee and Raf really. Optimus and Megatron we KNOW will get, Ratchet is also getting some good bits nearly every episode as the in-base guy and Soundwave is supposed to be mysterious.

    But Bee and Raf? They're not getting anything and I think both actualy got potential, in their "voice-less" positions" they can be keys for very touching stories.

    Bumblebee.

    I'd really, really, like to see a Soundwave episode too.

    Character development? Bumblebee and Raf, maybe Ratchet.

    CHARACTERIZATION [there's a difference]? Soundwave. I'd love to see him as Megs right-hand-'Bot for a while.

    Bumblebee and Raf really. We've gotten nothing on Raf besides introverted computer geek stereotype, and Bumblebee, well, all we know is he's a young scout. I'd say Ratchet, but his few lines honestly characterize him pretty well.

    I can't believe they haven't given more screen time to 'Bee. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I don't dislike him, but I'm not crazy about him, either. I'm just surprised--he was a big character in Animated, and also in the LA movies, so it seems strange not to see him in the spotlight so to speak.

    Maybe we'll see more of him and Raf in the next season.

    Soundwave for sure. That guy was stone cold in the first five episodes. And I'll echo Bumblebee as well. He definitely needs more screen time IMO.

    Ratchet and Starscream, and Soundwave. Hands down the most interesting characters in the show, and only Starscream has gotten a chance to shine.

    Bumblebee, Ratchet, Soundwave, Megatron, and Raf. Dear god, Raf. They advertised him as a main character but I almost forgot he even existed!

    Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Ratchet, and...

    Wait a minute, I know there's one I'm forgetting. Some human, I think. He had spiky hair and vague and improbable hacking skills or something. :confused: 

    In all seriousness, though, I'm starting to feel like the writers themselves have completely forgotten about Raf. I mean, I know he's complained before in the show about how he just fades into the background and no one really listens to him besides Bumblebee, but I never would have thought that that characteristic would somehow become strangely meta and even the viewers would forget about him.

    I agree. I think he should get a bit more time. I remember the producers saying that we'd have a scene in Raf's house in an upcoming episode, and I'm sure he'll get a bit of time in during the Bumblebee arc early next season.

    Why is Soundwave's name on this list? He's a tattletale, that's what he is, and that's all he'll ever be.

    Soundwave. Too much of an enigma to not explore further.

    Im really hopeing for some future episodes with a focus on Raf and Bumblebee. Too much Arcee&Jack and Bulkhead&Miko. Other characters need development too.
    Hopefully Starscream will stay away for awhile. He's had alot of time himself while Megatron hasnt had much at all imo.

    I think Everything Soundwave has done could have been done by generic Decepticons. I think putting Soundwave in season one was stupid because he is a spy with nowhere to spy. It's cool when they talk about how cool he is as a spy but it's really not as good as seeing it.

    I am grateful for the lack of Bumblebee and Raf though.

    Megatron in the past year has dropped from my 2nd fav TF to nowhere in my top 10. He fails in both the Movies and in the TFP show.

    This. Doesn't hurt that he's my favorite character, too.
