    Do transformers hang out and drink too much oil and get all sloshy with their friends, slurring speech and clanging overflowing mugs against each other? Do they have music? Do they get too emotional and sappy, and sometimes too violent and get into fistfights with that one bot who likes to provoke others?

    We've seen instances of comparable behavior, like when First Aid leaves the Autobots to hang out in a junkyard with an oil guzzling salvage drone in G1, or in Animated when the oil guzzling Constructicons put drinking first and work second. How about Jazz partying down, dancing in the human club, and Blaster getting into a high intensity jam-off with Soundwave in G1? I won't even get into Animated Soundwave except to mention him. In the new IDW Transformers: ongoing, Ironhide shares an intoxicating drink of fissionable liquid with Optimus in a moment of comraderie.

    These are humanlike partying behaviors. My question is, do you think this was an institition on Cybertron, or did humans bring it about?

    It's more a pub than a club, but Maccaddam's Old Oil House, which originated in the UK Marvel comics, but has appeared in most continuities since, is certainly where most Transformers go for all of the above.

    Well, there was one by the Beast Era...

    "You are gonna LOVE it! I know this one place where... ahem... I know this one place where the servant-bots're walkin' 'round minus their torso plates, eh, eh?"

    Epic awesomeness. I'll be disappointed if I see no reference to this in WFC.

    Of course there are...why do you think Alpha-Trion wears a cape for? ;)  He clearly is the master pimp and can show a bot where to spend a weeks worth of Energon chips in 3 minutes :p

    Hell yes!!

    Ratchet wants to hit the pub when he returns to Cybertron in Animated.

    Plus, if you watch Headmasters, Hardhead knows his way around the Karaoke Machine a little to well

    IDW's Spotlight: Blurr featured a sort of club/bar where bots hang out and drink energon. If I recall correctly, Starscream walks up to Blurr and tries to recruit him into the Decepticons. Or something like that...I've tried to forget actually.

    Thankfully, these clubs are all vacant on Vehicon-controlled Cybertron.

    That whole sequence is totally awesome. Chromedome dancing with Arcee, Twincast doubling up as a karaoke machine. One of the best moments of the series.

    That bit of Headmasters never ceases to make me chuckle. :) 

    Also, in the IDW-verse, Spotlight: Blurr depicted Cybertron as having a somewhat vibrant night-life before the war.

    And of course in the recently released 1st issue of the Ironhide mini-series, we see the Autobots celebrating their victory over stopping a Decepticon energon shipment with plenty of rounds of energon. And Optimus even referred to Maccadams I think. Don't know where they all were tho'.
