Don't forget the triumvirate! I would love to see some stories that feature them as side-characters, showing how such nobodies who cleverly did not stand in the spotlight and avoided being noticed as too ambitious rivals by Megatron or Straxus rose to power eventually after everyone else was gone.
I always liked Skullgrin. 'Monstercon from Mars' was one of the few stories (in any fiction) to really focus on a Decepticon's interactions with humans, and while the B-movie monster plot was kinda silly, his character arc in that story was great. I think one of the other Pretenders gave him a hard time for befriending humans in a later story, too.
Indeed. It was a rare sight to see a Decepticon care about a human, and I liked how it was consistently continued in King Con where he even attacked Iguanus to save the reporter lady.
As such, it is a pity that he died in G2, I would have found it an interesting story idea if after Bludgeon's defeat on Klo, Skullgrin would have returned to Earth and cut all ties to the Cons...
We need a Scrounge toy. He's just neat. How many Transformers have the guts to go with a simple, featureless robotic head? Not many. The ones we do have originate from pre-Transformers. Let's see, Shockwave, Whirl, Omega Supreme.
Transforming into a wheel would be a real challenge, though. Tell you what, I wouldn't even care if he needed big chunks of add-on kibble to pull it off.
I think there is a Power Rangers toy that pulls it of quite well. Or well, if we go by shell-forming, there is BW Neo Dead End.
