    One of the fun things about G1 was the idea of sub-teams or sub-groups. Like the Dinobots, Insecticons, Constructicons, etc... I'm really interested in the idea of informal subgroups. These are some of the informal groups I've made up so far.

    Autobot Medical Team:
    Ratchet, First Aid, Perceptor?

    Autobot Research & Development Team (or Science and Engineering Team):
    Jetfire, Perceptor and Wheeljack

    Autobot Construction Team (Or Manufacturing & Construction Team):
    Grapple, Hoist, Huffer, Load Hauler?

    Autobot Security & Defense
    Ironhide, Trailbreaker, Red Alert

    What do folks think of these teams? Any missing members on the teams? What about some unofficial/informal Decepticon subgroups?

    The Decepticons only really had Hook as their surgeon/medic right? Who was the Decepticon lead scientist/engineer? Did they have more then one?

    Am thinking maybe Prowl for Autobot Security/Defense etc? (Been a long time since I've seen the G1 show, and my memory is rusty...)

    What about the Decepticon Rainmakers? I remember Acid Storm.....

    (And oooh, you just reminded me how much I loved the Insecticons as a kid.....:p )

    Swerve for Science Division. Dude is a metalurgist. And Brainstorm, of course. There's a LOT of Autobot scientists.

    Since Jazz was the head of Special Operations, I've always imagined him having a small team of Autobots with certain abilities, like Mirage with his invisibility and Hound, with his tracking skills. Maybe Trailbreaker, since he could pick up 'Con signals in MTMTE, plus has has a force field.

    I reimagined the Deluxe Insecticons as a group of scientists.
    Thats not really the theme of the thread but its in answe to the OP' question about Decepticon doctors.
    Barrage is the Weapons specialist
    Chop shop is a Surgeon
    Ransack is an engineer
    venom is a chemist

    Hmmm what about "policebots" ?

    Magnus as the leader

    Prowl as the second in command

    Streetwise as the third in command

    Chase as the forth in command

    Ratchet as the medic

    fix-it as a secondary medic

    And first aid as a third medic

    You have guys like Preceptor who fits the traditional "scientist/smart guy" trope, Wheeljack who is more of an engineer/inventor and then you have Brainstorm, who is kinda both.
