    There were over 100 transformers in generation 1. For the new shows they use the big name ones like prowl and bumblebee.

    What lesser known transformer (good or bad) do you want to see get a chance in the spotlight?

    I would like to see nightbeat. He would be great in prime.

    The other would be flame. An insane autobot turned bad! Soumds great.

    What about you? Is there one you would like to see?

    I think we had a thread similar to this a while back, and my answer remains the same: Goldbug.

    Hound - illusionist / holograms would be a nice change of pace, he could bring something new to the table.

    Mirage - stealth / invisibility, suspected Decepticon sympathies, he could be written as a very interesting character.

    Finback - a veteran Decepticon and master of thousands of battles, now literally falling apart thanks to a terminal condition only kept at bay by a special suit containing vital life-supporting chemicals. He'd be a very "Mr Freeze" type of Decepticon.

    Roadblock - based on the Dreamwave profile, this guy is a hardcore commander and it's a surprise IDW did not make him a Phase 6 Decepticon like Sixshot or Overlord!

    Erector doesn't count. No thanks to the Hall of Fame, he's hardly 'lesser known' now. :lol 

    I want Octopunch.

    Erector would make a great character to hang around the Autobot base, and I'd absolutely love for Scrounge to make an appearance.

    It's also insane that Bludgeon hasn't had a cartoon appearance besides that one short commercial by now.

    I'd also love to see some characters based on the turbomasters, but we got Skyquake recently and that's enough for me, I guess.

    Other than that? It'd be nice to see some of the Japanese continuity characters get a nod or two.

    the micromaster battle patrol!

    cosmos needs a comeback.

    and i'd like to see more use of Guzzle. since he was lucky enough to be re-used for the DOTM movie set, why not in a cartoon as well?

    Come on now, he's a Decepticon Vampire/Necromancer/Hypnotist with a distinctive personality and wonderfully cheesy Bella Lugosi inspired voice, you could revolve entire episode plotlines around his powers.

    Crosswise. He's a bounty hunter with a cool accent.

    I also agree with what people said about Hound too.

    Bludgeon. He needs more screen time.

    This.
    Also:
    Australian Jetfire
    Bludgeon
    While not really lesser known, Sunstreaker really needs to make an appearance.
