    What do you think some of the Transformers's did back on Cybertron before it was destroyed? This one sounds fairly random, but I think Bumblebee was a Welder. It kind of makes sense. His battle mask looks quite a bit like a welding mask, doesn't it? Also, since Transformers can intigrate weapons into their body, why not include tools? His cannon does look like a welding tool. Anyways, what do you think the other TF's did?

    According to supplementary materials, like comics, Cybertron was divided into three factions; the Science Division, maintained by Optimus, which oversaw new technologies and archaeological finds, the Defence Force, maintained by Megatron, which protected the planet and those that were dissatisfied with how Cybertron was run.

    Basically, two big groups and guys who didn't like it.

    Like, before the war? Because once the war started, it seems like everyone's job became "kill the other guys and try not to die. Let us know if you figure out better ways to do your job."

    I remember their name now- the Malcontents- but basically, they are Cybertronians that rebelled against the co-opted rule of Optimus and Megatron.

    As Megatron's lust for power grew, he ordered his soldiers to be more brutal to said Malcontents. And by brutal, I mean they slaughtered them.

    I'd assume that their Cybertronian jobs were similar to their "Earth task" jobs, more or less. Ratchet was probably still the medical officer, Ironhide the weapons specialist/resident "tough guy", etc.. I know that some of the supplementary comics/media will have more detail on it, but honestly, that's how I see it. Their "Earth task" jobs would basically be beefed-up versions of the more mundane titles they were tasked with on Cybertron. Soundwave as the communications guy, Jazz as Optimus' SIC, QueJack the gadget inventor and so on.

    Also, that's why I really liked how Optimus' team was portrayed in TFA. They weren't soldiers. They weren't mercenaries. They were engineers, mere construction workers. A small team of misfit grunts lead by a drop-out leader who were waved off and sent to go fix rivets and lift steel pipes. They didn't have guns built into their arms, they had grappling hooks, welding zappers, anti-gravity-things, wrecking balls, etc.. And yet they were able to take those "tools" and use them for weapons, showing their skill with them. Love that.

    :lol

    Do you happen to have a link of some sort to this story? I'm really interested to know the Cybertron stories in the movie-verse.

    It's on TF Wiki, called Foundation. It's a basically a DOTM continuity telling of Cybertron's past and how Sentinel, then OP and Megs, came to power.

    Link: Foundation issue 1 - Transformers Wiki

    False. If anyone is pimp in Bayverse it's Sentinel Prime.
