    We all know Cybertron is Primus, and he's Unicron's brother and he shut himself down. But my question is did he even feel the battle going on, and the energy level low on the planet? He was briefly detroyed from the war, and crushed by Unicron in the TF:TM, but the that surprise me is that he never screamed or anything, how is that possible?

    Thanks

    Primus as a character didn't exist in 1986. So no, he didn't know anything about the events on him.

    But his answer stands. He didnt react because he didn't exist at the time.

    Primus is a Retcon.

    I would like to say that, he was aware. However, never felt it.

    Primus is in every single Cybertronian... and blahblahblah.... things and stuff.

    Just, in a way yes, in a way no...

    There is no Primus in the Sunbow G1 cartoon continuity. Cybertron and the Transformers were created by the Quintessons. So the 1986 Transformers movie, which is also Sunbow continuity, involved Unicron trying to eat a lifeless machine world, not the body of his brother, who didn't exist.

    As for the Marvel Comics G1 continuity: Primus was not the entire planet, in fact it was just his "spirit" that entered a metal asteroid which he then psionically reshaped into Cybertron. The planet was not his body. If I were to come to your house and throw rocks at it, you would not scream in pain even if you were awake. And Primus was not awake, he was practically in a coma. It took a direct laser to the face to wake him up.

    It's only the Unicron Trilogy in which Cybertron is the physical body of Primus.

    And where was Unicron all this time during the Great Wars, Golden Ages, prior TF:TM was he on his way? If so it must took him Millienias to aproach Cybertron

    :D 
    I'm still laughing a bit about, "Grammar NAZI! HO!".
    Also, he could have known, but ... he knew that Rodimus would handle things for it was not his continuity to awaken. For, as it was written in the Convanant of Primus, " ... and their god shall awaken when each battle consists of justice burning from those whose battles are key to the lock of his confinment."

    Wasn't Primus also the planet Cybertron during the universe war as well? or did they just share a common design?

    Fact: space is big.

    Universe war... universe war... is this fiction that goes along with the first Universe toyline? Not ringing any bells.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Awesome.

    Yeah, Universe war was a big event.
    Things I know:
    -Optimus Primal freed from Oracle.
    -Matrix inside Optimus Prime used on control harness from Beastwars to make Primal Prime, this being done by the Vok.
    -Cyrotek, using Beast Megatron's dragon body (now blue), works with Quintessons, and at some point gains Primus' power.
    -Apelynx dies and Primal Prime merge to become Sentinal Prime. yeah hazy on that.
    -Transformers from various universes were pulled from various times and universes and are made to battle, to feed Unicron.
    -Cryotek gaining unicrons power tips off unicron as to where Primus is.
    -Sentinal Prime and Croytek are trapped in a dimension with each other.
    -Lot of TF die.

    That's what I know.

    Oh, the 3H OTFCC fiction. Yeah, who knows what was going on with Cybertron/Primus in that.

    Well, let's see... they based their fiction off of the Beast Wars cartoon... Beast Wars cartoon was a continuation of the Sunbow G1 cartoon... mumble mumble... carry the one... subtract... multiply by the power of Greyskull...

    Yeah, I'm gonna say Primus wasn't Cybertron in that continuity either.

    But I could be wrong.

    Indeed, it was pretty ambigious about which G1 it followed.

    "Possession" would seem to suggest a direct tie to Sunbow continuity. Other than that, I don't know.
