    Which G1 characters have never made it into a bootleg form?

    (Not the re-issues or those fake dinobots that are out now)

    I haven't seen:

    Galvatron
    Insecticons
    Optimus Prime
    etc.

    Can someone comfirm or add to this list?

    Optimus Prime was one of the first bootlegs. Followed soon after by Swoop, then Mirage, then the rest of the dinobots.

    Those are knockoffs. Bootlegs are intended to be passed on as the original, Knockoffs aren't.

    I haven't seen Sunstreaker... I'm pretty sure the Insecticons were done during G1 days.

    Member Ages3&up is probably the one with the list, or knows who can provide you the info

    Many of them seem focused on the 1984-86 figs. Don;t see too many 87's and up.
    Prays someone makes some rare Headmaster bootlegs, Trizer, Loafer etc...

    I'd imagine them to be quite rare, being made in the 80's. And probably in lesser numbers than the official ones as well!
