    When they started to construct Autobot City was it imidiately when Season 2 finished, how long did it took them to built it? I assume Prime was already making plans to built Autobot City some time during season 2, and was it his idea? cause The Decepticons havent conquered Cybertron yet. Even when The Decepticons conquered Cybertron The Autobots could of try to fight The Decepticons.

    Thanks,

    It wasnt covered in the US cartoon.

    The Japanese had one episode called "Scramble City" that showed Metroplex being created in what seemed to be soon after season 2.

    I say that only because Spike seems to be about the same age.

    We can assume the rest of Autobot city was built soon after.

    Dreamwave comics hinted that Autobot city was built in the early 2000's.

    Some time less than 20 years.

    It is highly recommended that you not look directly at G1. Things just fall apart when you do; like a quantum particle you can either see it's position or its velocity, not both.

    In the Marvel UK story "Ark Duty" I recall Autobot City was finished in 2003 - I don't think it was specified how long it took.

    But you're talking about the cartoon...which, predictably, has few answers.

    It doesn't really make sense that the Decepticons were able to conquer Cyberton. The Autobots heavily outnumbered the Decepticons. I mean I realize that the Decepticons were built for fighting more than the Autobots were. Something must've tipped the scale.

    The Autobots on EARTH outnumbered the Decepticons. It was established early on that the Autobots were heavily outnumbered on Cybertron, though we never really see much of the Decepticon army there.

    Regarding the Decepticons conquering Cybertron, it was already "mostly conquered" since the start of the series, save for a few Autobot holdouts. Presumably sometime between 1985 and 2005 Megatron left Earth to fortify on Cybertron, driving out or killing the remaining resistance, while the Autobots fortified on Earth (and the moon bases).

    The autobots outnembered the Decepticons in the toyline sure............but tin the toon with all the generic seekers and reflectors the numbers seemed closer.

    Not to mention all those Decepticon generics we saw when Unicron attacked.

    So it was Prime's idea to build Autobot City? Or was it like a vote?

    Not covered in the US toon.

    Nor was in mentioned in the original US comic.If I remember correctly, in the UK comic it was a subliminal suggestion from Unicron to Prowl.

    The Dreamwave "hint" I mentioned came from Prowl.

    I dont think it was ever covered in the Japanese Scramble city either.

    just proves that seekers and shockwave kick ass!

    because that is the bulk of what megatron had on cybertron ...his appointed "guardian of cybertron" and buttloads of cybertron seeker bots...

    that and those worthless security sentinels that the combaticons blew threw with ease...

    I think so, but it also had to be approve by Earth's governments.

    prime prolly got permission, from the governments, after all they'd need materials yes? as far as numbers go, the autobots and decepticons were from mass production lines of robots, so, they wont wanna waste time showing you too many of the same bot in different colors with different names. sure they autobots were more diverse, but this may be mostly due to fact they prolly have fewer "siblings" from same assembly lines.

    megatron prolly kept his numbers low to save on energon. clearly he was amassing it for his master plans and projects.

    prime likely sent out a message when cybertron was close and the autobots came to the new safe place earth. the decepticons, likely stayed on cybertron, where they had the most power.
