For example I heard about a group of transformers called Nails I think it would be interesting to for them to appear in a series even as a opposition to the Autobots and Deceptions. Heck in a series Nails could be made into rogue transformers.
The reason I'd like for them to appear is because really the classic Bot vs Con angle is a little stale. Besides it would be interesting if Optimus displayed a level of resentment going as far as to say "Nails are nothing but deserters and are worse Decepticons. Leave them to die they are nothing to us." and Megatron displayed this sort of attitude "I have no problem with Nails so long as they stay out of my way."
Also I'd really like to see a Transformer that bad mouths both the leader ship of Megatron and Optimus and both the Bots and Cons. Saying things like.
A Nail when asked who he answers to Optimus or Megatron could say "I don't answer to either of those two pieces of scrap."
A Nail confronting Optimus could even argue that both he Megatron are unfit to lead their race like so. "Megatron wasn't the only one that led an army Optimus you did to and because you could never put aside your differences we lost our planet and now our race might face extinction so for give me oh great Prime if I have interest in taking a side."
Even an evil Nail trying to take out all the big fish would make a compelling villain with the line "Don't you idiots get it I just want this war to be over and that's why Megatron and Optimus have to die. Those two stopped being leaders to us if they ever were the moment we lost Cybertron."
But if they were to appear as a group I'd love for the leader to be a former student of Optimus that follows his ideals and genuienly wants to rebuild their planet but twists and warps Optimus's ideals.
Er, NAILs are "Non-Aligned Indigenous Life-forms" who were Cybertronians that despised the war and left Cybertron to get away from it. They are not a faction, but a large group of civilians, pacifists, deserters (from both sides), and moral objectors. The terms "Evil" and "Decepticon" cannot apply to them.
And Burn's right. Go read the current comics as they have just what you seek from a third-party of non-Bot/Con Transformers. Go to a local comic store or a bookstore to find 'em.

Turns out that ain't Thundertron, but it is a Star Seeker.
I say this since we've seen his toy and it looks nothing like that.
Though, here's their insignia blown up to full size.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
