    I'm sure people have asked time and time again which Transformers do you like and which ones that you hate, but... I've been thinking about writing a G1-based fanfic, and I've decided that I'm only going to include the characters that everybody likes so much.

    So, anyone as be so kind to tell me which characters from G1 you like as well as ones that you absolutely hate? I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks

    You could really devide G1 into several different parts( season 1&2&3&4 ETC...)or mesh everything together in one universe like Furman/IDW has done a brilliant job of. The best thing to do would be not to be too character heavy. A few bots, a few cons, will let you flesh out their characters very well.
    Some of my favorites who've been absent from a lot of other fiction/comics-Tracks, Runabout and Runamuck, Blurr. Kup/Char is cool character that needs more story time as well.

    Thanks for some pointers, Robimus. For sure I'm going to break the fanfic down into "seasons," and feature a small group of characters from each faction, give them a chance to flesh out before I introduce any more characters.

    Okay, I will try and squeeze in Tracks, Runabout, Runamuck, Blurr, and Kup. I know for sure that I want to do my own take of Kup's story... about all the places he's been to and all.

    Sideswipe, Beachcomber, Powerglide, Warpath, and Sky Lynx? You got it!

    Any more characters I should include? Are there any characters you don't want me to include in the fanfic, like Wheelie or Hot Rod? Please tell me.

    Gotcha. Cosmos will be included.

    My brother has the G1 Cosmos toy. Quite surprisingly, it's in good condition... unlike most of the others he has saved from back then.

    I hate the G1 show and characters, so I'll just go by which toys I like.

    Megatron.
    Soundwave and minions.
    Jazz.
    Long haul.
    Scavenger.
    Most mini-bots are fun.
    Pepsi Convoy.
    Skywarp.


    That's pretty much it for me. If you ever do some non-G1 cameos, you could include Sky-byte.:p

    "Most mini-bots are fun"? Which ones?

    I'm tempted to use non-G1 characters -- just for kicks -- so chances are I might include Sky-byte.

    Brawn's pretty cool, isn't he? He's among my favorite mini-bots. Such a shame he died of one frickin' blast to the shoulder in the '86 movie.

    So yes, I will try and work Sky-byte into my fanfic.

    Everyone, keep some responses coming. I'd really appreciate everyone's input on which characters are popular and which ones aren't, especially since it will help me determine who to include in my fanfic. 'Kay? Thanks.

    Prowl, Bluestreak, Brawn, Mirage, and Trailbreaker were my favorites growning up.


    For the cons, Shockwave, Insecticons, and Stunticons.

    Autobots I hated; Season 3 Grimlock, Sky lynx, Wheeljack, Tracks, Ratchet, Gears, Bumblebee, Warpath, and Windcharger

    Scramble City combiners. Basically, any combiners. The crown jewel of my collection is my reissue Predaking, and I anxiously await the TFCC making the Seacons available.

    My next favorite would be Headmasters. If there ever do a reissue of Grand Maximus, I will pay any price in order to buy him.... just so he can stand next to the other crown jewel of my collection, Brave Maximus.

    Grimlock13 -- Don't worry, I'm SO going to write a good deal about Snarl.

    Onesock -- Gotcha... Ultra Magnus and Ramjet.

    Mightion -- Everyone seems to like the Combiners so much, so I'll definitely have them in my fanfic. I'll try and give them some really awesome fights, too! There is a chance I might do a Headmasters story, so keep on wishing for it. That, and if you want me to, I'll also include the Seacons.

    Soundwave84 -- Soundwave is so going to be in the fanfic (I wouldn't dare not include my favorite Decepticon of the entire G1 series), and of course, Wheeljack's in too.

    Orion P -- Alright-y, Mirage needs a bigger story... will be sure to give him plenty of action.

    Smkspy -- I hate to say this, but all the guys you hate... everyone else likes them, so unfortunately they'll make it into the fanfic. I don't remember the third season, so my knowledge about Grimlock's character is strictly from the way he acted in seasons 1-2 and the '86 movie.
