    For the Transformers Wiki.

    NOTE: Please no catch-all "Bumblebee is licensed" posts.

    1) Please only lists either toys whose packaging you own, or have access to for double-checking. No "I think I remember", only what you can confirm.

    2) List toy, exact name from the packaging, size class and, if it's part of a multi-pack, please say so. Also, whose license is it?

    Examples:
    Deluxe Class Bumblebee Preview figure - General Motors (Camaro)
    Human Alliance Bumblebee & Sam Witwicky - General Motors (Camaro)
    Deluxe Class Sideswipe - General Motors (Corvette StingRay)

    You can also confirm toys that have NO license.

    Examples:
    Deluxe Class Sideways - no license
    Deluxe Class Rampage - no license
    Voyager Class Demolishor - no license


    Toys to check:
    Legends Class, Deluxe Class, Voyager Class, Leader Class, Human Alliance, Ultimate Bumblebee, Fast Action Battlers, Supreme Devastator, Gravity Bots, Power Bots, Robot Replicas (some of them had licenses for the first movie line), RPM Battle Series, RPM Mini Vehicles, RPM Radio Controlled, RPM Battle Chargers, RPM Devastator Showdown track set, store exclusives.

    You can probably limit this to movie characters and redecos (including redecos of movie 1 characters), since offscreen characters will most likely have no licenses. That means no Scouts, no Breakaway.

    Please remember, state size classes, multi-packs if necessary, and only refer to toys you can double-check with the packaging. No speculation, no conjecture, no posting from memory.

    I've got all my cards from packaging saved in the basement, I'll go pull them out and hopefully edit this post with new info.

    Alright-

    Legends-
    Ratchet- Hummer H2
    Starscream- F-22
    Jetfire- Blackbird
    (nobody else in the first two waves has a license)

    Robot Replicas, Scouts, Keychains, Robot Heroes, Leaders-
    No licenses

    Gravity Bots-
    Bumblebee- Concept Camaro
    Prime- No license

    Deluxe-
    Sideswipe- Corvette Stingray Concept
    Mudflap- Chevy Trax
    Skids- Chevy Beat
    Smokescreen- Pontiac Solstice
    nobody else has a license (I don't have I. Barricade or the two Bee's)

    FAB (only the first wave)-
    Jolt- Chevy Volt

    Exclusives-
    Skywarp- F-22
    Ramjet- F-22
    Whirl- Pavelow Helicoptor, Bludgeon has no license


    Something else of interest, FAB Jolt was retooled fairly last minute apparently. His instructions still illustrate his alt-mode parts as looking like they were designed after the OLD Volt design, as seen here.

    Leader Optimus Prime - no license (modified Peterbilt 379)
    Deluxe Breakaway - no license (modelled after Joint Strike Fighter F-35 by Lockheed Martin)

    edit: sorry, didn't read you didn't want off-screen characters. Whoops.

    I'm pretty sure Jetfire's SR-71 Blackbird altmode is licenced by Lockheed-Martin, as one of those first look pictures at the back of the box showed the L-M logo on the box's lower back.

    Also, I think all versions of Skids and Mudflap are Chevy Licenced (sans ice cream truck versions), as their deluxes have the Chevy symbol on their car mode griles, so I figure all other versions should as well.
