Honestly I don't know why people want the two most boring of the two teams instead of the new CW ones.
Slingshot was one of the only Aerialbots who had a memorable personality in the cartoon! Unlikable, yes, but memorable. I can also remember Wildrider for having a southern accent and being crazy. Mostly just from the sequence where he and Dead End decide to run Rodimus off the road. Not that they were deep--you take what you can get from the G1 cartoon--they had a lot of characters to deal with, so sometimes the wacky voice and a few lines that show the writer read a bio had to be shorthand for the character.
That said, I am looking forward to having Alpha Bravo; but I'll be glad to get Slingshot, too, if the TRU version materializes and I can find him. Same goes for Offroad vs. Wildrider. I have a soft spot for black and red or gray and red. I like the idea that new guys can jump in if the team needs them.
