Kicking things off is a new thread about obscure characters from the Transformers toyline that might deserve a shot at the small screen. Let's kick things off with my suggestion; Dreadwind and Smokejumper. Released in 2004 as part of the Robots in Disguise line, Dreadwind and Smokejumper were army grey and olive green repaints of BB and Starscream from Beast Wars 2. Now these guys always struck me as a ratbag mercenary duo. You've got the sleek scheming type in Smokejumper, who'll probably sweet-talk you into paying him your life insurance whilst painting a red target on your forehead for future reference. Than you've got Dreadwind, the big lug who might not be very bright, but knows how to make your life a living hell. And let's not forget his most valuable asset; his FOURTEEN MISSILES! Add that with the fact their muted colour scheme allows them to infiltrate the obligatory human military forces without stretching credibility, and you could have a great henchman duo for any would-be Decepticon tyrant.
