I like the idea of them being 2 different factions. But sometimes it seems they are portrayed as 2 different races. For Example, in Animated the Decepticons appear to be a different race. If you read the Safeguard comic story, Sentinel Prime mentions to Magnus how Autobots don’t fly and Magnus mentions how they used Decepticon DNA obtained from Starscream. I could be wrong, but I think there were times in G1 where it was implied they were 2 different races. What are your opinions on this subject?
