    When Sparkplug (I laugh hard when i hear his name on TF) fixed Autobot Spike, he said he used Autobots spare parts, where did he get the spare parts? Where their any Autobots that were discovered by Optimus Prime that were badly damaged and werent repairable and decided to give them to Sparkplug?

    I always took it that these were extra part they had lying around for repairs. Kinda like the way a parts store has lots of spare parts for cars for when they break down.

    Maybe he scavenged them from the bodies of other, nameless Autobots who died when the shuttle crashed?

    G1 Prime probably saw some drunk bots in Iacon and removed the limbs for his collection.

    It could happen. Look at Headmasters. They took 'em off pretty easy.

    If I remember correctly, several of the spare parts were identifiable as from other Autobots so it could just be Ratchet had a few old bits lying around from previous repairs. Which could make things even more creepy for some Autobots to see their old bits wandering around.
    As for the head, I suppose if you're a robot species and make use of spare parts anyway then I don't see why having a spare head, or at least the separate components to assemble one, is so odd.

    Yeah, I wouldn't read much into it. I personally consider Autobot Spike to be one of the worst episodes of the G1 cartoon.

    It still doesn't scratch BOT, Child's Play, or Carnage in C-Minor, though.
