    The Spotlights can be set at any time featuring any character, even if they haven't yet appeared in the main IDW continuity. It doesn't matter if a character is currently dead since a Spotlight can be set before that character dies.

    A character cannot have more than one Spotlight to their name, although Orion Pax and Optimus Prime is acceptable.

    1. Impactor
    2. Macabre
    3. Black Shadow
    4. Straxus
    5. Lockdown (from the Drift mini-series)

    Only five? Hmmmm, let's see.
    - Swerve. Whether it be his life at some point during the war or just screwing with people on the Lost Light, hilarity would surely ensue.
    - The D.J.D. Would be cool to get a kind of a history lesson on them.
    - Rung. He's still a pretty new character but he strikes me as something of an enigma. He has the brightest spark aboard the LL (bright spark = potential Matrix bearer) and has possibly been around since the Golden Age, what kind of life has he lead?
    - Overlord. Because Overlord.
    - Erector. Because no one else has said it yet. Also because I've thought of too many others I'd like to see and can't choose just one, haha.

    Sandstorm- Wrecker with the least characterization. Broadside's close, but at least he's had a few speaking lines.. Hey, maybe a teamup?

    Pipes- Ever since Delphi I've been itching to see him do something. His bio makes him seem like a Transformers version of Wall-E. Maybe there's something valuable in his junkpile, too...

    Trailbreaker- When we meet him, his forcefield thing seems overplayed already. Maybe a story on how he got famous, or him determined to do something important without it.

    Beachcomber- One-time pawn of Soundwave. Maybe focusing on some of the aftermath of Spotlight: Blaster? Or a brand new story of Beachcomber in the Cybertronian wilderness..

    Wreck-Gar- Many characters have made their debut in a Spotlight issue, and we have yet to see anything about everyone's favorite couch potato. Could even expand off the story with Spotlight: Pipes...
