    Quite possible; however, Brawn did get a sweet movie figure and cosmos may as well. It's too soon to tell really. I doubt Trailbreaker/Trailcutter will ever be a huge star but I enjoy him all the same and am happier than a giddy schoolgirl that he's getting an updated figure despite it being a Legends.

    All of the Technobots. They never really get much of the spotlight and when they do the writers classify them all as scientists (more or less) even though five of them are more warrior types.

    Not at all within the fandom. But ask a casual fan of the movies who don't own the toys, and they wouldn't name him.

    i have a thing for pipes. dunno why.

    and Greenlight and Lancer. Lancer looked like she had a lot of potential as some sort of space samuria, but alas no. and Greenlight i just really like the color green.

    oh! and Team Ironhide! they really need a come back and a gestalt.

    Swerve and Tailgate have certainly made names for themselves recently in the fandom.
