Because Hasbro needs to sell toys. Why does it matter anyway? They did the same thing with Cliffjumper and Skyquake.
I figure it's because of the small cast. Beast Wars, Animated, and any other Transformers series all had more bots on either side than Prime has. That's why we're getting more of the same characters when really we shouldn't be.
I'd hoped they would have done a Beast Hunters version of Breakdown, but I guess not.
Beast Wars is cutting it close. It's the weekend, so I'm not going to do any maths, but I think the Prime cast is only a few short. It's just that most of the Cons have died and stayed dead pretty quickly, whilst BW tended to replace the casualties.
BW also had quite a few different versions of their different show characters. In many cases it was done in conjunction with the character models in the show changing as well, but there were the various Fox Kids repaints as well as those Transmetals that didn't get Transmetalized in the show. It's just with BW there were dozens of non-show characters made as toys, some of them repaints or retools of show characters, yes, but many not. TFPrime has only had Dead End, Rumble, Hot Shot and Kup in the main line that I can think of as non-show characters, plus a few cyberverse repaints.
