    All the versions of Cybertron in the Transformers films

    Yeah, according to The Last Knight blu-ray extras, the Nemesis ship from RotF was apparently on Cybertron lol

    I don't think that world was Cybertron in ROTF.

    I wish there were more Cybertronian landscapes, they look diverse. I especially like the honeycomb design and the pagoda-like towers.

    According to the tfwiki the planet the cons meet on in rotf is one of Saturn's moons.

    I like all of the different settings on cybertron. It really makes the planet come to life and seem more real.

    None of this.

    But if you included the Cybertron of War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron, that is easily my most favorite version.

    Bayverse Cybertron sorry to say is just a collection of incoherence, it doesn’t know what it wants to be, at best uninspiring.

    The honeycomb appearance could’ve been made more interesting: with diverse radiant colors, structures,I suppose. One glance at Bay’s Cybertron, it looks like a dull, dead, uninteresting, monotonous planet.

    One of the things that were commendable with what the makers of War for/Fall of Cybertron was the world they created, as genuine fans of Transformers, was a product of love and dedication for the lore.
    So the version of Cybertron they created was the best one.

    Yeah, well a big LOL to that. That was not cybertron. And between DOTM and TLK, cybertron is not much different.

    Transformers Prime dead Cybertron still manages to be more interesting than bay’s monotonous metal honeycomb

    I guess Dead was not the correct term. The more correct term would be ugly. Bay’s Cybertron, although I like the part that it’s similar in size as Saturn (they nailed that right), the overall appearance is just ugly and it doesn’t help that its features change from movie to movie, which I think is just a reflection of the overall incoherence, inconsistency and disorganization of bay’s live action series.

    Well according to them now, that was Cybertron.
    They probably retconned it.

    Even back then, the world was referred to as a dead moon in a system orbiting a dead star.
    The planet in the background could be Saturn, but the nebulas suggest otherwise.
    There could be other planets in the universe that are similar to Saturn.

    Horrible truth time but I've never liked the look of Cybertron in anything. I haven't liked the look in any of the cartoons, haven't liked the look in the comic books, and I haven't liked the look in the live action movies.

    Kind of tough to put my finger on exactly why there has never been a look that really worked for me. But it seems like no one has really figured what exactly would make a design click for me to say hey I could totally see the Transformers coming from that planet. Maybe it's just too much metal. I mean you look around the Earth and it doesn't look like our flesh, Vulcan doesn't look like Vulcans, it just seems weird to see a world where both the planet and the life on it looks too much alike.

    I'm with you. Seriously, Cybertron looks way too dull in every incarnation. I feel like we can still have a metal planet but with more color and life.

    I favor the Cybertron of Tf1.
    It seemed alive and was transforming on screen.

    The honeycomb surface just feels dangerous and inefficient to me. You can't take a misstep without falling straight to the core.

    Well...we are made of the same materials as earth. Just maybe in different ratios.
    Our bodies are made of mostly water & so is our planet. We also biodegrade back into the earth when we die.

    What I dislike about the honeycomb design is that it's too insectoid; it reminds me of a hive, which in a sense makes the Transformers alien insects.

    But there was a sense of of landscapes at different/changing angles, which work outs better with the Transformers being shapeshifters. The ILM guys could have done wonders with this concept.

    I completely agree.
    Having to transform in order to traverse the shifting terrain makes sense.

    What if the whole honeycomb thing was just like the "skeleton" of the planet. Like we saw in TF1, there where other landforms, and as we saw in TLK, there where even some parts with organic material with the honeycomb shapes serving as like a "skeleton" of sorts.
    After millenia of war, the planet's land and terrain was worn down to just the honeycomb-like "skeleton".
