I'm not sure, if I remember I'll check my unicron when I get home tonight. There have definitely been cases in the past of non-aligned characters being given a decepticon or autobot insignia on the toy. Animated Lockdown is an example I believe.

G1 Gnaw
G1 Wreck Gar
G1 Unicron (never produced but prototypes had a Decepticon rub sign)
G1 Sixshot (Japan - does LG50 Sixshot have any Decepticon logos?)
Cybertron Unicron
ROTF The Fallen*
RtS Wreck Gar
AoE Lockdowns
AoE Steeljaw
RiD Megatronus*
Titans Return/LG Gnaw

*Subjective -- the Fallen was initially not a Decepticon. In some continuities he's never a Decepticon, but in the Bayverse he influences Megatron to create the Decepticon faction and in the Aligned universe he claimed to be the first Decepticon but there's no canonical evidence to back this claim.

They made Mystery of Convoy in 1986, although that was cartridge game.
The Famicom Disk System isn't a stand-alone console on its own, it's a add-on disk drive that attaches to your Famicom console.

I used to own both an NES and Famicom back in the day.
I didn't own the Disk System but I knew other kids who did.

Errrr....

I think I got my Famicom Disk mixed up with my Twin Famicom. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_Famicom

God I'm finding it hard keeping facts straight in my head these days.

But Convoy No Nazo was published by Takara, not Developed by them. Headmasters was the first developed. Huge difference between being a developer and a publisher.

Also what are you talking about Six Shot not being a Decepticon? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtLpwtwqaak

i.e. Only talking about Sixshot in G1 Japanese continuity, not Anglophone continuity. Thanks.

??? Sorry but most people don't know anything about Japanese G1. Are you saying Takara made him a different faction?

Here's the link the Giant Bomb page for Convoy no Nazo. As you can see it was not developed by Takara. https://www.giantbomb.com/transforme...zo/3030-15638/

A developer makes games, a publisher publishes them. I was referring specifically to developing games. Any businessman with some financing can be a publisher. Being a developer takes artistic and programing skill.

In Japanese G1 Sixshot was a factionless mercenary, much like Lockdown. Yet the toy was packaged as a Decepticon and had Decepticon logos. In the anime and manga he had no logos.

This doesn't seem to hold very well. He was pretty much the Japanese city commander, emphasised even more by his rivalry with Ultra Magnus.

TFwiki lists his function (presumably from the Headmasters cartoon itself) as "Decepticon Dinobase Ninja Staff Officer." Though he may have been his own bot prior to its events, he seems to be a Decepticon in the time of the show.

Ah, thanks for the explanation.

I tried to watch the Headmasters and within a couple of episodes I gave up thanks to that really crappy english dub. I wish Hasbro would do a proper dub of the Japanese only episodes.

Was messing around with the new Trypticon with my son and just found that there is a button behind the head to pop open the cap and reveal the gun on his nose. I've been opening it by the cap

And that button has a Titan Master port on it. You're meant to put the Titan Master that came with Trypticon in that port making him the second Titan Class Titan Master.
