    I was wondering if anyone else would find it valuable to have a list of Third Party TFs along with the names of the characters they are "homage"-ing. Some I find obvious, but some I don't get right away, or needs a little explanation.

    Example: MECH iDEAS - Project Z & Prototype X (obscure South American repaints of Topspin and Twintwist named Salt-Man Z & Salt-Man X).

    Specifically, I was wondering who each of TW-H04 & TW-H04G Grant are supposed to be. Most people probably think it's obvious, but I'm less familiar with TFs post '86 movie.

    Anyway... I'd find it helpful.

    Neat. If it had names on there when I looked earlier, I guess I missed them. I guess they're getting added along the way.

    The Transformers (first-party) names are usually in parentheses after the 3rd-party name.

    I saw the thread earlier, and wanted to thank Bruticon (and the unnamed others helping him) in that thread, this seems like a good place to do so.

    Thank you for providing such a valuable resource!

    There is a wiki with this into too, if you look for it.

    Please be patient as we work on getting the index compiled. There's so much product out there and everything has to be added one item at a time and then the titles adjusted if need be plus, we all have our normal lives to attend to as well as our normal Mod duties. It's going to take some time but we do hope that our fellow members will be pleased with the results :) .
