I really like Universe Inferno - he's an alternate universe Beast Wars Inferno who gets stuck into an Autobot fire-rescue car body. So he's got BW Inferno's personality, but he follows Optimus Primal as his queen, and whenever he tries to burn anything, he just sprays it with water.
The Marvel UK comics sold him.
Sure, there are plenty of obscure characters in the TF universe...and what's obscure in the US might just not be what's obscure in the UK or Japan...but personaly l feel if you're the star of a comic, cartoon or other media and have been featured in others then that should disqualify one from being obscure...mostly red shirts or one-off characters or background character l consider obscure...not just G1
Grimlock had a decent amount of screen time I guess, but the rest of the dinobots should have had more development, I think.
Reflector. He was in it for the first season a bit. Then one day he just disappeared forever.
I do like Movie 1 Camshaft. I like how interesting he looks with his drone design not o mention his backstory's fun too. i'd like to see more Autobots like that.
Aw hells yeah.
Almost any of Soundwave's lesser-known cassette minions. Some of 'em were maybe in a comic and maybe got a toy once. I love Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak and Ravage, but, Soundwave's got his own little army he's toting around in his torso. I'd love to see some of them get a bit more use.
With the team Soundwave has in his chest it's a good thing he didn't crave the leadership role like others...
Dinobot Slag from G1. I don't consider the Dinobots obscure as a subgroup, but Slag never got any episodes dedicated to him. It would have been cool to see an episode similar to Desertion of the Dinobots where swoop got a little solo screen time.
Scrounge. From the comic.
Subsea, Chameleon and Chainclaw all from G1.
G1 Omnibot Downshift
I have always liked Downshift because, unlike most other Transformers, his alt mode is actually a convincing disguise. Instead of something flashy and colorful, he turns into an inconspicuous, plain white Toyota Celica. Not a dinosaur, not a hovercraft, not a race car etc… Downshift is just a normal everyday car that wouldn't attract any attention, so he would be able to blend in perfectly on most public roads.
I love Scourge.
Would that be G1 Scourge, http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scourge_(RID), http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scourge_(BW) or http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scourge_(Cybertron)
Doubledealer. The US version. He has two awesome toys, but next to no characterization, with a lot of possibilities.
Does carnivac count as obscure? I mean he had a story ark based around him in the marvel g1 comic.
If he doesn't count cos of that I'll go with the tape bot Stripes.
