Thanks to SEIBERTRON.com member Scaleface, we have new information regarding the development of the G1 characters. A person by the name of Steven Stonebraker obtained this information by meeting with Bob Budiansky who was a guest at the Iacon One convention.

Some of the more interesting tid-bits were the original planned names for some of the G1 Autobots:

Cliffjumper was going to be Blow-Out.
Windcharger was going to be Sprint.
Sunstreaker was going to be Spinout.
Bluestreak was going to be Blue Streak.
Jazz was going to be Jazzz.
Trailbreaker was going to be Guzzle.

Also, it seems that some of the stat's for characters were changed from what was originally planned:

Starscream and Skywarp's original stats were swapped.
Rumble's stats were lowered from their original settings.

Last, but not least, it appears that Laserbeak's original name was supposed to be Slazer.
