    When you think Autobots and Decepticons, who comes to mind first? Who are the main guys for each team?

    Autobots
    Optimus Prime
    Ultra Magnus
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Bumblebee


    Decepticons
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Shockwave
    Soundwave

    Optimus and Megatron. Why? Because they were the only guys to appear in every continuity. Wanna watch A/E/C? Don't expect a Bumblebee. Wanna watch RID? Don't expect a Starscream. Wanna watch BW/BM? Then don't expect any close enough names besides Optimus Primal and Megatron.

    Makes sense. Bumblebee, though he was in G1, didn't become a big name until the movies. The only reason I added him to the Autobot group is because he is becoming a well-known Autobot (due to Hasbro wanting him to be). I'm sure every form of Transformers fiction from here on out will feature him as one of the main characters

    For the Autobots, I'm always thinking Optimus, Ratchet and Perceptor. For the 'Cons, Megatron, Starscream and Soundwave.

    Optimus Prime and Megatron, especially now in the Aligned Continuity where they themselves personify each faction by being their respective founders.

    Cons: Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream
    Bots: Optimus, Bumblebee, Ratchet

    Though I suppose it's more like:

    Cons: Leader, Loyalist, Mutinous
    Bots: Leader, Kid-Friendly Scout, Medic/Technician

    For one, Arcee comes from your magical "love for her. Bulkhead's fairly new, Hot Shot was only important un the Unicron Trilogy, Que did practically nothing. Sideswipe comes from "ooh, shiny!", Airachnid and Dreadwing? Way too obvious. Flatline's not even a notable character and Barricade only known for Bayformers fame.

    It's my own opinon mate. Those are the characters that I personally think of when I think of a perticular team. Is there anything wrong with that?

    That's not a team that's half of a regular G1 army. By team we mean like characters reused all the time like Optimus or Megatron, Starscream and Ironhide (He may not of have been Optimus' old friend but he was in RiD and Energon).
