    Pretty much everyone new from G2, alas, given they had little to no meaningful fictional appearances. Which sucks, because there are plenty of good designs in there.

    For G1 Sunbow:

    Windcharger - Never really said or did much that was relevant.

    Gears - Had only one featured episode with dialogue where he turned on everyone.

    Huffer - Only known for carrying Prime's trailer ONCE and whimpering.

    I do believe Windcharger didn't even speak in the three-episode pilot. Even Reflector had lines!

    I think they may have recorded lines for him (I seem to recall watching the video with the recording session tapes from Transformers at the Moon, and I remember John Stephenson getting a line as Windcharger), but I may have to refresh my memory.

    Yep, he did have a scene focused on him in the first episode that ended up getting cut.

    I actually like them. Siren has potential to be a great grouch character by the way his profile describes, and I think Hosehead would work well as comedy relief.

    Agreed! I like the headmaster concept but I don't like any of the actual headmaster characters except these two. I think it's because they're the only ones with earth alt modes (I'm not keen on Cybertronian / spacey alts).

    chase is probably the most forgettable though but with him being in rescue bots it kind of redeems him, now whos the red on? an what about the white one, searchlight?

    Broadside. I honestly had forgotten the Autobots had a triple changer that transformed into an aircraft carrier until he was brought up as a GI Joe collab or a HasLab project.

    "G1 Wreckers" is just a concept in the UK fanbase, though... right? I wasn't ever much of a comics person, so maybe I'm wrong on that. Either way, I'd never even heard of the Wreckers until IDW.

    On the subject of Broadside, I thought he was more ridiculous than forgettable. A massive TF that transforms into an aircraft carrier doesn't sound appealing to me, but it's at least feasible. One that also transforms into a jet is just stupid. My tolerance for mass-shifting is very low.
