Nobody's on the right track so far so I'm going to reiterate the hint:

OPTIMUS PRIME <---> CONVOY
As Optimus Prime is to Convoy...

...I'll drop more hints as the need arises.

Bumblebee - Bumble
Hound - does not have a different Japanese name.
Jazz - Meister
Laserbeak - Condor
Metroplex - Metroflex
Mirage - Ligier
Optimus Prime- Convoy
Ravage - Jaguar
Rodimus Prime - Hot Rodimus
Scorponok - Scorpion/Zarak
Waspinator -Waspeeter

I'm going with Hound, as as best I can tell he has the same name in both English and Japanese versions of the cartoon.

You are correct i_amtrunks! (^_^) Hound is the only TF in that list whose Anglophone name is the same as his Japanese name.

G1 Scorponok is called Mega Zarak in Japanese (and Zarak is called Scorponok). BW Scorponok is called Scorpus. And Rodimus Prime is called Rodimus Convoy (Hot Rod is Hot Rodimus).

Your turn i_amtrunks.

Keeping with the Cryptic-ish questions then:

What is the common element?

1. "Perchance to Dream", "Infiltration", "Ghost in the Machine", "Decepticon Graffiti", "On the Edge of Extinction"

2. "Five Faces of Darkness", "Spotlight: Kup", "Club Con"

3. "Warrior School", "Infiltration", "Transform and Roll Out", "Skin Deep", "SOS Dinobots"

4. "The Rebirth", "Escalation", "Spotlight: Sideswipe", "Love and Steel", "Time Wars"

5. "Rebellion of Planet Beest", "Maximum Dinobots", "Ring of Hate"

Ratchet is the only character in every issue of Infiltration, he's also in every episode of Transform and Roll Out, Warrior School, Skin Deep and SOS Dinobots. Is that the answer or is that not cryptic enough?

Correctamundo on Ractchet Sky Shadow. Now get going on the others.

Funnily enough Ratchet is in all episodes of both G1 and Animated Transform and Roll out...

I had said Scorponok, and was wondering if Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime counted as one person. But now I'm changing my answer to Hardhead.

Repugnus.

If those are right, it leaves the second one... which I can't quite work out yet.

Thanks! Okay. I'm one of the most likely people to complain about the overexposure of Year 1 to Year 3 G1 toys. But which 1984-1986 toy character had to wait the longest before his first appearance in a western comic book publication?
