Animated has featured interesting remediated versions of popular Transformers characters - Shockwave, Soundwave, Blurr, Bumblebee etc.
Which Transformers characters from past incarnations would you like to see in Animated?
For me, I'd like to see a more cat-like version of Ravage as another instrument companion for a returning Soundwave. I think Soundwave and minions would be like a touring rockband with Rumble and Frenzy doubling up as roadies or something. A Ravage that does'nt have the build of Ace the Bathound would do him justice. (Spy Cassettes would now be the... "Instruments of Destruction".)
I am also thinking of the Throttlebots reinvented as kid-like loiterers. Their old design from the G1 toys can be upped to a hoodie and heelies type thing. Obviously all 6 would not be used in the show (although I'd like them to) as Animated seem to not spread gimmick TFs too thinly (i.e 2 Constructicons, 3 Dinobots, 1 Triple Changer).
