    So out there, there are a wide variety of characters, all with different personalities, alt modes, and levels of obscurity, and it got me wondering-of every obscure TF there is, which one would you instantly buy the moment you learned it was being made?

    For me, I would lose it if IDW's Fulcrum/Torque got a toy. Slim odds, I know, but I would flip and buy in a heartbeat-even getting 2 Fulcrum's, one to mod into Torque lol.

    Who is your grail of obscurity?

    Probably Rung. He's not that obscure as he's a prominent character in MTMTE's lineup but... we aren't probably getting him in toy form anytime soon.
    On a side note, I still can't cope with the fact that we haven't any toy (except the Botcon one) of a not-so-obscure character as Alpha Trion!

    Hook, Line and Sinker from the Marvel series.
    Circuit Breaker from the Marvel series.
    Overlord. I know there is one coming from BTS and I am keeping my eye on it but it may be too big. I also know he is not very obscure to some but I am a fan from the G1 Cartoon first and foremost. My first introduction to Overlord was in LSOTW.

    I'd love Straxus that actually resembles the old Marvel character: stocky, great big head, flying cannon, etc.

    Is Jhiaxus obscure?

    I'd love Fanstoys to do a Masterpiece Straxus. That would be SO bought.

    Needs a throne tho too so the coneheads and Insecticons can stand around him.

    A G2 Skram would make me very happy, as he was my first autobot and i'd love to see a new version of him, and the 3P that makes him could do his buddies too since they were gang molded.

    Definitely. I had three of those guys, they were great. Also, the Euro-G2 Turbomasters. Never had any, but I totally dig their designs.

    If Mech ideas made the wreckers Rack'n'Ruin in a similar way to their jumpstarters (shared mold for the two guys with some remolding) I'd squee like a little girl.

    Not to derail the thread, but if Mech ideas did indeed make Rack & Ruin, along with Impactor, Roadbuster Emirate Xaron & a Voyager Overlord - I would scream like a bunch of girls at a One Direction concert!!!!

    Rotorstorm, definitely. Although he's not quite as obscure now thanks to LSotW, but I liked him before that, dammit! </hipster>

    :lol  Any 3P that tackles the Dinobots HAS to do this one!

    I've forgotten the name, but I'd like to see the yellow cybertronian autobot with a triangular head that from the Marvel comic that transforms in to a wheel.

    Others that spring to mind: Rack'n'Ruin, The last Autobot, the autobot bounty hunter from the G1 cartoon, and a dedicated Emirate Xaron figure!

    Guiltar would be cool.
    Swindler too, but mostly for the DeLorean alt mode. It'd have to have BttF parts.

    And any TFs from when I was a kid would be nice, really. With so many done all that remains is:
    Sixswitch, Landmine (preferably based off the inner robot), Chainclaw, and Squeezeplay.

    Bonus points for Leader-1 and Cy-kill.

    Battletrap and Flywheels. If someone could figure out how to make those guys, fully articulated, that'd be amazing.
