It's too bad that they never made a female autobot counterpart to Beachcomber. An older version of someone like that would make for a great elder/coucil person type figure in a different continuity.
Kind of a wise, gentle motherly sage type of individual who exudes goodness and wisdom yet who you know full well is capable of paddling your ass for swiping cookies therfore you never make the attempt.
The younger, flowerchild counterpart to Beachcomber would be cool to see too. Yup, Beachcomber could use an "earth-muffin" to hang out with. Wow, now I feel inspired to start doodling and see what I come up with.
So, which one of us would be to blame for this creative streak getting started??
