    If you mean media money making cash cow- Bumblebee is your man, er, robot.

    I see Prime and Megatron on a lot of posters...

    Starscream.
    He's so vain, he probably thinks this song (er, thread) is about him.

    Not sure I understand the question but in its most conventional/frequent use, "poster boys" refers to those faces that are the "acceptable front" of a product or business, or those that are guaranteed to generate most income.

    Sunstreaker and Sideswipe - definitely not.

    Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, maybe Hot Rod... yeah.

    Optimus Prime is to TF as Duke is to GI Joe as He-Man is to MOTU as Solid Snake is to Metal Gear. Prime is the face of TF no doubt.

    You always get an Optimus and a Megatron. Bumblebee's always good for making money and bringing in both women (for he is cute) and children (for he is cool).

    Agreed. I'd add Starscream as well. He seems to sell well, and has hordes of female fans. For characters that lots of hardcore fans love to see at the forefront, throw in Soundwave, Jazz, Ironhide and Shockwave as well, I guess (although really just about anyone who isn't, say, Wheelie is applicable here).

    Also, if the OP could please comment on what exactly they meant by "poster boy", that would be great, as I have a feeling that we're not actually responding to their question.
