    Hey guys, I have to admit to not knowing extensively about Transformers across all timelines, so I posted this thread to get your opinions.

    What do you guys think are the top ten most iconic Transformers? Not necessarily favorite, but characters that make the brand name, that are simply iconic to the franchise.

    Please list them, from 1 to 10, with number 1 as the most iconic of all time.

    Yes, there are no 7-10. Because these five are pretty much the only characters a non-fan would even recognize. And I'm not even so sure about Grimlock.

    I'll give this a try....

    10. Fortress Maximus(and other incarnations Grand and Brave Maximus)- A Big Battle Fortress, did I say BIG

    9. Devastator – THE “COMBINER”

    8. Soundwave/Shockwave - The ever loyal servants of Megatron (I couldn't decide between thee two)

    7. Bumblebee – With the latest movie, BB has reach iconic status

    6. Grimlock - "ME GRIMLOCK KING OF DINOBOTS"

    5. Ultra Magnus – The face of the dependable soldier

    4. Hotrod/ Rodimus Prime – Help elevate Transformers to a higher status (86 Movie) – "The Chosen One"

    3. Starscream – You got to love this treacherous decepticon. He keeps on failing but he keeps on trying.

    2. Megatron/(to a lesser extent Galvatron) – The "OTHER FACE" of Transformers

    1. Optimus Prime - The "FACE" of Transformers

    1. Optimus Prime - He is the most iconic transformer ever. He's selfless, powerful, kind, and fierce in battle, when he needs to be.

    2. Megatron - Where would transformers be if there weren't the villains? Megatron was always a great villain, with his might, hate, and hunger for power.

    3. Starscream - He keeps failing, but he tries again. He won't stop until his goals are achieved. A memorable character.

    4. Soundwave - In contrast to Starscream's betrayals, Soundwave was always the one loyal to Megatron. And he has that awesome voice.

    5. Bumblebee - Kind, friendly, sometimes funny, but knows when to fight when he needs to.

    6. Grimlock - Because he is the king.

    7. Shockwave - Another loyal servant of Megatron, Shockwave was Megatron's first choice for a second in command, since in G1 he left him in charge of Cybertron.

    8. Devastator - The big, powerful combiner. In his first appearances in G1 and ROTF, he was an ultimate threat.

    9. Ultra Magnus - A loyal soldier, who doesn't want leadership.

    10. Rodimus Prime - the Chosen One.

    Prime
    Megatron
    Bumblebee
    Soundwave
    Grimlock
    Starscream
    Shockwave

    The above list is probably without a doubt the most ionic G1 characters and the list ppl would recognice most or known when described.

    Proibably some of the Autobot cars would be close to the list like Jazz, Hound, Prowl, Ironhide, Ratchet and so on.
