    I am working on a project, and I was wondering if any online source has a list of Every single G1 Transformer (Sunbow Cartoon, Marvel Comic, the Takara exclusive characters) I looked a bit on the TFWIKI, and i could not find anything. Anyone?

    What are you setting your boundary conditions as for G1? Are you including the Japanese continuity? Are you including toys and toy variants? Are you including characters whose names/backgrounds are contentious?

    Our G1 section (and Japanese section) are pretty comprehensive for everything that ever had a toy. Non-toy characters are included, but we've not got as complete a listing for those, particularly for one-episode wonders in things like the Japanese series.

    Oh man, you're in for a lot of work. I was browsing through the TFWiki to look how many guys are in the G1 Continuity. There were nearly 400 guys or more, not quite sure.

    On the Autobot side. Didn't look for the Decepticons yet.

    Probably easiest to just chuck a list on here and let folks chip in with obscure ones that aren't on it (*cough* Macabre!)

    You will probably have to define what you consider "G1" first just so you have set boundaries. Are you looking for just the characters that appear in the comics and television? Or are you including the toy only characters such as Magnificus? Omnibots? Do the DW and IDW comics count? What about European/South American exclusives? What if a character was part of the original toy line (Deluxe Insecticons) but never appeared in any of those formats?

    The sad truth is that there really is no "definitive" list. (If that's your project, good luck.)
