It's not exactly a new thing, but it seems to me that for a dollar by unit franchise with warring factions you'd think Hasbro would have considered more generic black slate characters to fill in for the countless robot minions sent to be scrapped by the hundreds to sell. Star Wars has Stormtroopers and Rebel Scum, Star Trek has Red Shirts, and Transformers has...Seekers? I mean Seekers really do fill that role to a T, but day by day we have a ton of Screamer clones with their own names and quirks that you wonder if they'll ever get a part in the story or something other than filler. So I say this, apart from current characters and toys, would you want a plain army building character? If so, what would they be, from the Seekers to the Vehicons, or a mixture of some kind? Would you only lock them out for Decepticons only or give some to the Autobots? Me I used to like the Vehicons from Prime, but I was too late to get even one and I got attached to the Seeker body type and imagined Megatron subjugating the populace into these standard molds by the hundreds to fight for him. But I totally get for those who don't; how many for each side would be fair, and how much is too much shelf space?
