    It has occurred to me that slowly but surely the Transformers pantheon is being added to, or subtly evolved into newer versions.

    Drift
    Energon Hot Shot
    Animated Bulkhead
    Movie Bumblebee (who is slowly assimilating G1 Bumblebee)
    Animated Lockdown
    The Fallen (cross-continuity)

    What other characters are making into the big league? Who is being squeezed out? How do you feel about new characters being added?

    bumblebee clearly squeezed out the AEC hotshot character as the yellow/car small transformer younger bot persona.

    You not counting any Beast Wars/Machines characters? Those series brought in plenty of strong characters that makes a person think about who has the more memorable character claim to names like "Inferno" and "Silverbolt" ... or even "Optimus" and "Megatron".

    Are we talking famous amongst fandom or famous amongst the population at large, because I'm pretty sure no-one outside of the fandom gives a shit about Drift. As do a lot of people inside the fandom...

    We're looking for characters that are becoming really big, and popular, either crossing over into other continuities and lines (particularly in G1, but not exclusively) like Hot Shot, Lockdown, Bulkhead, or getting some other huge spotlight.

    I feel it's almost always kept close to the G1 roots. The leaders have most of the spotlight, and some other fellow soldiers have their own little spin-off episodes, like Bumblebee or Starscream. But if you look closely, the ranking has stayed the same, and for the most part, the same characters get the same glory they always have. Just my thought though.

    I would say Primal, BW Megs, Blackarachnia, Waspinator definitely. Primal and Megs were great characters, and BA and Wasp showed up as pretty much the same characters in Animated. Cheetor was pretty popular too, and of course Dinobot. I mean, he was the only non-G1 Character in the Hall of Fame. From the AEC Trilogy, I would say Hot Shot. From RID Sky-Bite and Scourge

    I think Dinobot tops the list, and if he doesn't he's pretty damn close. I think his Hall of Fame entry over G1 favs like Jazz and Soundwave is proof of that.

    Maybe he's popular by being infamous. I can't think of another character in recent memory that's been so divisive.

    Over all? You guys are naming character that come easily to mind right?
    After abit of thinking Beachcomber, Grapple, Octane. Not my favorite guys. But they where my favorite episodes from back in the day.

    RUMBLE!!
    Rumble comes to mind as I write this. No one who comes to these pages is NOT going to know who rumble is sure...But when was the last time we saw him do anything?

    I love Scalpel. Also because DJW added him to Animated's continuity.

    All of these were G1 characters. The thread starter asked about POST-G1 characters.
