Only the Cyberverse vehicles come to mind.
(Driller, spaceship, mech)
Not just in this series. I mean Overall.
Yeah. Overall. That's the only ones that came to mind.
Althought in G1, Grimlock seem to hate his robot mode. At least 90% of the time, he remain in T-Rex mode.
Movie Scorponok and Ravage come to mind. High Wire, Sureshock and Grindor, in their Energon forms, come close as they were shown in robot mode only once
in the cartoon, and in Beast Wars, Ravage transformed into a cassette (again, only once), while the toy transformed from a biped jaguar... to a quadruped one.
In Victory, the Dino Pretenders never transformed into their alt. modes during the series, discounting the partial transformation into...was it Dinoking?(Monstructor repaint).
The tfwiki said Armada Overload only appeared in robot mode, in the background of an episode, once, for like a fraction of a second. He did have a full robot appearance(mini-con and all) in the pack in comics at least.
There's also ROTF Fallen's never seen jet mode(unless it popped up in the comics or video games), and Soundwave never transformed to robot mode onscreen in ROTF either.
Still, I think the biggest similarity and example I can think of for the posed question is the Seacons and Firecons from Masterforce. They never transformed into robot mode during the series, and there was never a suggestion they even had one outside of Halfshell appearing in robot mode in a manga(thank you tfwiki for all your obscure knowledge!)
