    I was curious about which transformers from G1 were most commonly paired up. Like how Inferno and Red Alert were pals, Ironhide and Ratchet, or would Ratchet and Wheeljack make more sense as best pals...

    I'm paring off my figures to display and I want to put characters together that makes the most sense. I thought I would ask you guys as some of you may have better insight or recall character dynamics better than myself. Thanks!

    Inferno and Red Alert
    Sideswipe and Sunstreaker
    Hoist and Grapple
    Mirage and Cliffjumper (hehehe)
    Brawn and Gears and/or Huffer
    Ratchet and Wheeljack
    Blaster and Jazz

    Hm.... there weren't really any Decepticons that hung out outside their subgroups, were there?

    Probably not. You have Soundwave and his cassettes, Starscream and the Seekers, Constructicons, Insecticons, and Reflector... Maybe have Shockwave and Megatron hanging out?

    That's a good line up of autobot pals though.

    I feel like Ironhide and Prowl make sense together
    Maybe Tracks could could hang out with Sideswipe and Sunstreaker.
    And probably put Smokescreen with Bluestreak...

    Not sure if they're paired, but I always imagined Shockwave and Soundwave would make a pretty good combo/duo. It's a damn shame we never see them working together.

    Powerful sure, but they definitely have opposing views on Megatron. They probably hate each other.

    They both seemed quite obedient to Megs in the G1 cartoon.
