    I agree for the most part.
    I would add the Combaticons to the Decepticons
    And Wreck-Gar? Why is he on this list?

    He was in the '86 movie, which is one of the most iconic G1 anythings ever, if not the most iconic.

    I'm just going to go with an overall top ten, here... more or less in order of "iconic status", imo anyway:

    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee (largely thanks to the Bay films, though... no doubt he'd still be on this list, but a bit lower otherwise)
    Megatron/Galvatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave & Laserbeak
    Grimlock
    Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime
    Jazz (or possibly Prowl)
    Devastator
    Unicron

    Anyone else I can think of seems less of an "icon" and more of a b-lister fan favourite type... I mean, come on - Hook???
