    It's interesting to think about it. How old do you think Transformers are? I could guess Optimus is way older than the rest of his team, and Bumblebee might be the youngest. And even Wheelie and Brains might be older than humans.

    Sorry if there is already a thread about this.

    Older than us, that's for sure.

    Oops - I knew I forgot someone. I'd put him at about Jazz's or Mirage's age.

    I was under the impression that Ironhide was the oldest and most hardened.

    Nacht, I'd put Shockwave at the same age as Prime and Megatron. They were all buddies under Sentinel Prime's leadership in the IDW John Barber prequel, so I'd assume they're all generally the same age.

    There are some info about their ages in related merchandise.

    Ironhide is the older one of the Autobots, behind Sentinel Prime...He would be like the equivalent of a man in his late forties or early fifties I believe. Sentinel Prime would be already in his old age, in his sixties, same for Jetfire, but he seems to me older, maybe 75.

    Then there is Ratchet, he would be like in his early forties.

    Then comes Optimus, late thirties.

    Bumblebee is young, like in his early twenties. Skids and Mudflap, the packages of their Deluxe versions in the ROTF line says theyre very young, they would be like teenagers, maybe 17 or 18.

    Jazz seemed to be in his thirties. Seems to me the same for Sideswipe. Mirage/Dino would be in his late twenties maybe. Arcee and Chromia, late twenties to early thirties.


    About the Decepticons, the Fallen would be, well, really old, like 85, but seeming a lot younger xD Megatron, in his early forties, Starscream, late thirties, same for Soundwave. Shockwave, early forties. Barricade, Bonecrusher, Brawl, Blackout, Grindor, etc, early to mid thirties at most.
    Frenzy seemed younger to me, like in his twenties.

    Now, we just have to remember that even they may seem to be the equivalent to a certain age group in humans, each one is several hundred years old, the older ones, much more, several thousands of years old. If they spent 10,000 years looking for the Allspark, that means they were already there when it was lost, ergo, they were already a few thousands of years old. Their lifespans are incredibly longer than that of humans.

    cybertron is over billions of years old so if the fallen is 85 that is way to young since he was one of the first transformers to be created so he must about i dont know 1 million already

    Ah, mea culpa. I'm not all-too up to date with the prequel material.

    Ebay:
    If they were humans, this is about how old I think of the Autobots as being (the 'Cons got much less characterization, and there were more of them, so they'd be a lot harder to do):
    Optimus Prime: Late 40s-early 50s
    Ironhide: Early 60s
    Ratchet: Early-mid 40s
    Jazz: Late 20s
    Bumblebee: Early 20s
    Sideswipe: Mid 30s
    Arcee: Mid 30s
    Twins: Mid-late teens
    Jetfire: Mid 70s-early 80s
    Wheelie: Late 30s-early 40s
    Brains: Late 30s-early 40s
    Mirage: Early-mid 30s
    Wheeljack: Mid-late 60s
    Roadbuster: Mid 30s
    Leadfoot: Early 40s
    Topspin: Mid 30s

    Topspin: Hard to say since he didn't speak and stayed in LF and RBs shadow, but going on pure conjecture I would peg him in his Mid 20s, just a hair younger than BB

    Jetfire can't be older than The Fallen because The Fallen is one of the original Cybertronian bots. Therefore, he's among the oldest.

    I'm pretty sure Ironhide is at least as old as Op and that Ratchet isn't that old

    I think Ironhide is the oldest out of the Autobots except for Sentinel (he really shouldn't be considered an Autobot though, should he?

    Optimus-mid 40's sounds about right. He has experience, but endurance as well.
    Ironhide, I see more in his late 50's
    Ratchet, early 40's.
    Jazz, early 30's
    Bumblebee, late teens
    Sideswipe-early 20's
    Mirage-mid 20's
    Wheeljack-mid 50's
    The Wreckers-mid 30's
    Twins-early 20's
    Wheelie and Brains-mid 30's
    Jetfire-about the same age as a Tolkien Elf

    Megatron-mid 50's
    Starscream-late 30's
    Soundwave-early 30's
    Shockwave-late 40's
    Blackout-mid 30's
    Sentinel-mid 60
    Barricade-early 30

    I'd wager these robots lifespans are much more limited than in other series because of A: how much more violent their wars are, and B: because the ancient pre-Transformers Primes were shown being around during the human race's evolution.
