    I recently looked at my Classics Bots and Cons shelf and realized something-I have all the Season 3 Bots, and nearly all the Season 1 Cons (DAMN YOU SHOCKWAAAAAAVE!!!). But then I wondered "Really? I gotta be missing one-let me find a list" Yet it seems I haven't been able to find one! So I'm making one, and could use some help.


    Also, since this has expanded to Japanese shows too now, should I leave Rebirth there giving their order of appearance, but also add the same characters into the Headmaster portion, since its a separate continuity? Get rid of Rebirth entirely? Or only do new characters in the Headmasters section.

    So, are you compiling a list of G1 characters who have G1/Classics figures? Because I'm sure Alpha Trion should count for at least S2 since he sacrificed himself to activate the Aerialbots and he has the Botcon retool of Vector Prime.

    Also, do you count E-hobby exclusives? Because I know they made versions of Orion Pax and Dion from G1 Kup and Wheelie (respectively), so they should count for S2 when the Aerialbots go back in time.

    TRION i knew I forgot someone. That's been killing me. And not necessarily figures, mostly show appearances. As it turns out, I don't have all the Bots from Season 3, missing Outback, Pipes, Swerve, and Tailgate for my classics shelf. Hopefully we'll get updates of the first 3, though for Tailgate I plan to use a G1 toy or a reissue due to his story in IDW lol

    Ah, gotcha. Although that still means Pax and Dion should be included, as Pax is the younger, non-affiliated version of Optimus, and Dion is his own character, both of them showing up in the aforementioned episode.

    Dion sure, but Pax? he IS Optimus. Oh, and thanks for reminding me of the Femmebots, due to the whole Ariel/Elita 1 thing

    The Autobot cassettes were not in Season 2. They premiered in Transformers: The Movie.

    And if you're doing all characters regardless of whether they got toys or not, you can throw Hauler in there with the Season 1 Autobots and Devcon in with the Season 2 'bots.

    Oh, and Overkill and Slugfest showed up in "Call of the Primitives."

    Looking over your list a bit more closely now... Ratbat wasn't in Season 2 either; he also premiered in The Movie. But Frenzy was in Season 1; he's got a speaking part in "Countdown to Extinction."

    And Octane (as he was called then, not Tankor) didn't appear until Season 3. "Thief in the Night" or "Starscream's Ghost," can't remember right now which episode aired first.

    I don't remember Hubcap being in The Movie. Get confirmation on that one.

    And as far as adding "Rebirth" characters to your list, it depends on your list's purpose. When you say Classics shelf, are you talking about the original G1 toys or CHUG versions of those toys? If the former, then sure, add them. But if the latter, thus far Hasbro hasn't delved too far into updating most of those characters. Several of the names have been reused in what are, at best, debatable homages (Energon Slugslinger and Universe 2.0 Hardhead would qualify, ROTF Mindwipe and HFTD Highbrow wouldn't, necessarily).

    I was talking classics, and DO have Mindwipe, Bludgeon and Sea Spray (for now) there, but not Highbrow. Sadly, I missed out on Hardhead. I still weep over that fact.

    Hubcap wasn't in the movie. Sunstorm WAS in episode 1, though given his ridiculously brief appearance, I'd had him with "Random Seekers" in my mind.

    The commentary on the dvd talks about it. He is on the belt by bumblebee, cliffjunper and jazz when they are inside unicron.

    Buzzsaw season 2?! That doesn't sound right, I'm pretty sure he was in season 1.

    Nope.
    Buzzsaw first appeared in "City of steel" which is a season 2 episode.
