    So one of the many many things odd in the transformers universe that never really dawned on me until a few months ago is, "The robots have beards.... how do robots have beards? What use does a robot have for a beard?" But I have always wondered, how Transformers age, and more or less grow beards, I mean in the newer lore they are considered Tech-Organic, however in say G1. They where robots plain and simple. So how do you think it is done?

    Certain tfs sport the so called mustaches and/or beards as a sign of station or age, or simply because they want to. How do they acquire the said facial additions? Easy, in a machine shop. Cutting out the wanted shape from sheet metal is easy and it doesn't take much to have them bolted on or welded on.

    It's a little something I like to call Techtosterone.

    And although TFWiki makes no attempt to explain the TF facial "hair" phenomenon, this is a nice rundown of all TF characters who sport it:

    Well, as far as Scourge goes, Unicron did it. Perhaps that means that Unicron = Rogaine?

    I think another good question would be why a TF would want what looks like facial hair? Maybe it's a throwback to a Cybertronian custom before the great war began?

    Facial hair on robots mean they have reached robo puberty which in human years is when you reach 6 million years or 1 bazilion miles, whichever comes 1st (refer owners manual).

    That.

    The only reason some have facial 'hair', is simply because it looks cool and gives them more personality.

    Maybe as a TF gets older their nano repair bots go a bit senile and start replicating around the chin and under the nose.

    Or they need a handlebar moustache for when transforming to their motorbike alt mode.

    Stranglehold is a TF Pretender shell with a mustache, so I'd say so :)
