In Chaos Theory, there was a flashback scene between Megatron and Springarm where Megatron was asked how he was created: forged, or constructed cold. It was suggested in that same scene that the method of creation was once used to justify apartheid in Cybertronian society. Megatron seemed offended by the question (and sadly didn't give us any hint which method he was created by). This tidbit of world building is fascinating, and gives IDW's continuity a unique spin on Transformer history and biology. Who decides how an individual TF is created, and why? Is it a matter of mass production on an assembly line vs carefully built by hand, or some other definition? Does the production method have any impact on how the spark is created or inserted? And note that we weren't told WHICH method of being born was the "good" one...were the cold constructed TFs subjugated by the forged ones, or the other way around? I hope this gets revisted again in future comics, because it's way too good of an idea to go to waste. In the meantime, what are your thoughts?
