    What ever happened to hound,skids,inferno,sunstreaker,sidewipe,skids,grapple,bluestreak,gears,hoist after season two. I know a few characters sideswipe,tracks, were shwon off screen but where these other guys at the city and did they die as well. What are the chances of them dieing if they were there and what is your opinion on it. Do u guys know where the other season 2 minbots where at during that time. Did reflector die at that time as well.

    It's assumed that they either died in the movie or they were reassigned elsewhere, never to be seen again.

    They were bumped to sell newer toys.

    And I believe Perceptor was in season 3 quite a bit.

    How can they be SHOWN OFF SCREEN:crazy: 

    If they are shown then they are on screen, it they are off screen then they are not shown.

    But to ask your question, they were dropped in favor of the new characters.

    Hasbro wated more stories featuring the new characters.

    Jazz was in Five Faces of Darkness Part 1, but his VA -- Scatman Crothers -- passed away and so he was never seen again after that. Bumblebee was also in the 3rd season a couple of times, before he was reformatted into Goldbug. Warpath was also seen in Five Faces of Darkness Part 1, at least I think that was him, but that's about it.

    Like I said, though... his VA had passed away, so there was no way they would have been able to have Jazz be featured more often in the third season.

    Seriously, guy. You're reading way too much into G1. This was a show that was written, animated, and produced on the fly. Stories and characters weren't written like they are now. Characters were selected for individual episode needs and thrown away after a new one came along or the toy went out of production. Once you come to terms with that, life and watching the cartoon becomes a whole lot simpler.

    Apparently it does to some.

    As I said in the other thread, inferno popped up in headmasters in the background of an episode, so at least in Japanese continuity he's still around then. As for skids and hoist, they fulfilled their roles in the few episodes they appeared in, and then blended into the background to be replaced by more popular characters with newer toys.

    What part of "went off with Sideswipe and Sunstreaker (Blessed be Their names) to have adventures too awesome for the human mind to comprehend" do you not understand?

    If I remember correctly, I read about Prowl being in the Japanese G1 series despite the fact that he was killed in the movie, because the Japanese didn't get the movie until sometime after America did.

    And I swore at one time, while searching for TF images via Google or Yahoo, that I found a screencap of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime and Hound standing next to each other that had to have been from the Japanese G1 series post-American Rebirth episodes.

    No, but if you buy ME all the G1 seasons, Ill answer his questions. I think that most of his questions arent covered by just watching the series anyway.

    *nod nod* A moderate handful of the 84 and 85 cast appear early in The Headmasters, mostly in the opening three-parter, but semi-regularly for the first ten eps or so. They never really DO anything after the first episode, but it's nice.

    I'm not sure about the rest, but I know that Grapple and Hoist eloped to Massachusetts.

    ...

    Why are you looking at me like that? Remember when Grapple wasn't allowed to erect his tower, but Hoist helped him do it anyway? "The Master Builders" indeed.
