Insecticons Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback (1985/2015 reissue)

For the most part, Transformers have always been divided into two factions: Autobots under the command of Optimus Prime, and Decepticons under the command of Megatron. While there have been several exceptions to this broad assertion over the more than 30 years of Transformers history, I would hazard a guess that the three characters featured today might be the first.

Vector Oracle (2012)

As more and more toys are added to the Transformers franchise all the time over the period of the past 30+ years, it is inevitable that some have been given more fictional attention than others. For many toys created purely as promotional items, it is perhaps no surprise that little-to-no fiction is ever created for them at all. Vector Oracle is one such toy. Indeed, I'm not even entirely clear whether I should call this toy "Vector Oracle" as a proper name, or "The Vector Oracle," given the fact "Vector Oracle" sounds more like a title than an actual name.
