    I'd like to see transforming versions of them. I only collect movie toys but might make any exception for a transforming Skyfall...

    The idea of a genuinely upbeat Decepticon stuck out to me as a kid who was only exposed to the movies at that point. Even now that idea has stuck with me. Aside from that, he’s got an unorthodox color scheme, design, and alt mode that really compliments his excitable personality. It also helps that he’s one of the first Transformers I ever got, so there’s some very deep personal attachment.

    Slight zombie resurrection, but hey it's not that old. If anyone weirdly pays attention to my comments about redecos I want, they'd know Nacelle is my favourite obscure character. His colour scheme is pretty cool and I like that he's basically a Conehead retool with a regular Seeker head. Glad to see him make a small appearance in the comics this past month. I'd like to see him make more little appearances here and there.

    My favorite "obscure" character is

    - Submarauder.

    One of my first toys way back in the 80s and still one of my favorites. I always was fond of every sea-creature and the sea itself, so it´s not that surprising, that Submarauder is one of my most-loved characters. He´s smart, short-tempered, a warrior and scholast and not the typical bad-guy in my opinion. And he looks awesome.

    Other not over-used characters, I really love are:

    - Dreadwind (my favorite "no future"-guy)
    - Nautilator/Lobclaw (he´s so incomepetent that it´s impossible to not love him)
    - Hosehead (same like Nautilator)
    - Tailgate (if he still counts as "obscure", so naive and good-natured)
    - Roadgrabber and Roadblock (two of my favorite toys back then and I really would love to see them again in a new, updated version...)
    - Whisper and Tailwind, Bombshock and Tracer, Vanquish

    I'm the nutjob who's holding out hope for a Selects Siege Tetrajet repaint (or ER Thrust/Starscream repaint, but I want my Cybertron seekers all as Tetrajets, please!). I'd love for him to get a toy, especially one that doesn't try to rip itself apart thanks to assembly errors.

    Oh I am also that nutjob. I feel like if we can get Red Wing as a GS repaint, why not Nacelle? I know people are kinda sick of the Siege mould but I would not complain if they released more of it lol. Gimme my 3-panel appearance Seekers, Hasbro!

    been vibin' over Armada Thrust. Dude needs a new toy. I mean how often do we get a mad scientist/tactician type call upon the powers of a cosmic horror to sell out his kin for power? not enough i'd say.
