    Show, comic or toy, makes no difference. But a TF you feel has always got short shrift next to more popular characters in the franchise. So no Prime , Megs or SS in this thread please. Or I'll cry. Okay, my vote to get things rolling goes to .... REFLECTOR:

    "I SAID: YOUNG MAN ..." :rock 


    That's right, these guys were the shit. And the bomb. When they weren't taking spy photos with Thundercracker, or carrying energon cubes around in the backround while more important characters were having crucial conversations that didn't concern them, they were talking in eeerie synchronicity, carrying yet more energon cubes around in the background, or larging it in a circus troupe Eiffel tower formation ....

    "You destroy everything you touch, Reflector!"

    "That is because everything we touch is food for our pyramid! Our pyramid of powerrrrrrrrr!!!"





    .... in short, they rocked. And that's a fact. Right, next UTF please ....


    (*Beachcomber isn't allowed however, for the simple reason that he's shit.*)

    Bludgeon? Single-handedly made Megatron's dream a reality, by achieving victory for the Decepticons, proving to be a more effective leader than Megs ever dreamed to be. He killed almost every Autobot. His killing spree for universal conquest was finally put to a stop by the intervention of the Last Autobot and Optimus Prime. Unfortunately for him, he would later be killed by a newly resurrected and much more powerful Megatron in Generation 2.

    Thunderwing? He stole the matrix...AND USED IT!

    They need new figures!

    Heh. Roller was the TF answer to R2-D2 just as Perceptor was the answer to 3P0.

    My second vote (I have three of these) goes to ....





    [​IMG]




    SEASPRAY!

    Not only was he a fantastic little toy I used to play with him in the bath in the days before I payed with ... other stuff in the bath.

    But where was he in the cartoon? Pah! The Decepticons wer cruising around in their planes and trains and the Autobots could have been cruising around on the ocean towards their base with depth chargers, large magnets and Hound all set to even up the score with Rumble over Sherman dam in his scuba gear in THIS guy!

    SEA POWER! SEASPRAY RULES!!!!

    I'm another Seaspray man :D :D :D  Got him when I was about 6 but he ended up broken with worn joints that prevented him standing up properly. Thanks to eBay, I got a mint Seaspray just before Christmas. Pretty more than any G1/re-issue acquitision of recent years, I got that feeling of childhood nostalgia. :)  The poor guy just always seemed under-appreciated by his comrades and the cartoon writers alike. Until the arrival of the Seacons he was pretty much the only ocean-going Transformer - most of earth's surface was exclusively his domain!

    Oh yes, it's CLENCH. Awesome truck mode, great transformation, sweet weapon platform, totally gnarly colours. This dude rocks the house, but not many people even know of his existence. Plus his name is Clench. He needs more love, because he's one of the best truck transformers out there.

    Agreeing with this. Bludgeon was probably the 2nd smartest Decepticon after Shockwave, and unlike Megatron or Starscream, he actually got things done. And Thunderwing was just awesome. He slapped Prime in the face with the Matrix. Damn!

    I also like Clench. He's one of those characters who would probably be a total badass if Furman ever put him in the comics. But as it stands he has no media appearances :( 

    And I like Rail Racer... but man, I can't sit here and just agree with everything.

    I have to say I really like Ricochet. Ok, so he has almost no personality, but frankly that makes him a blank slate to write your own character, and I did exactly that. The more I see people saying he's a lame repaint, the more I see him warming shelves, the more I appreciate him.

    Ebay:
    My kneejerk answer is RiD Bruticus, but I think there are actually enough people that like him to push him out of Unappreciated status.

    Second would be BW Injector. Piranahornet who's sculpted to look ugly, and has deranged vanity as a character trait. Injector needs a one-shot comic or something.
