    Did the Constructions came around the same time the Ark crashed on earth? or at some point during that 4 million years? And was Omega Supreme still chasing them?

    The Constructicons were former Autobots who joined Megatron's revolution, built Megatron, and were then built by him on Earth.

    Corrections

    The Constructicons were NEVER Autobots, who were FORCED to joi Megatron's revolution, built Megatron in the past, and were then later built new bodies by Megatron on Earth between the years 1984 and 85.

    It was said in "The secret of Omega Supreem" that they came to Earth after they learned that Megatron had resurfaced.

    So they came to Earth between 1984 and 85.

    And yes, it was also said Omega was still chasing them.

    Its kinda messed up. In one episode, Megatron says something about being glad they were just built, in Heavy Metal War I do believe. That is then contradicted in The Secret of Omega Supreme when it shows they were on Cybertron a long time before then

    The answer, OP, is that there is no answer. Pick one of the three completely dissimilar and contradictory origins.

    The way I see it myself, all the G1 episodes are an alternate universe to each other. MTMTE happened in all of them, and after that it's all multiple worlds. SO one reality the Constructicons are built on Earth, another has them build Megatron and a third has them built by Megatron.

    It cures so many headaches and doesn't drive you to insanity.

    The cartoon is rubbish, the comic is awesome :) 

    The Constructicons were built by Shockwave on Earth, who had usurped Decepticon command from Megs. Shockwave used the captured Optimus Prime's Creation Matrix to give them life.

    Well said.

    If you want to try to put some kind of logic to it, you could maybe try this. One could guess that maybe the constructicons were responsible for building many of the Transformer bodies on Cybertron. One of their creations was Megatron. Megatron turned around and changed the constructicons from peaceful builders into violent Decepticons. They were not a part of the Decepticon fleet that left Cybertron four million years ago. And some time during season one, Megatron ordered them to come to Earth, and they arrived via the spacebridge. When they arrived, the Decepticons reformated (built) them new bodies to resemble earth style construction vehicles. When Omega Supreme discovered that the Constructions had made their way to Earth, he followed.

    Sorry, best that I can do.

    The truth! And it also doesn't cause threads about Constructicons to turn into debates about the intent of a single word said in the cartoon.

    "built" is not always synonymous with "newly created"

    theres no real solid contradiction.

    yep

    Well, your reconciliation is still a fanon interpretation of contradictory canonical information.

    And his definition of 'built' is a fanon interpretation of what's in the dictionary anyway.

    Welllllll... I think it's pretty clear that the obvious meaning of "built" is self-evident, despite what some might...

    ...
    ... oh... ahem. Right. Been there, done that. Nevermind... :horse:

    The Constructicons weren't Decepticons then why on Earth would they build Megatron?? And Megatron build them? they were seen in " the Secret Of Omega Supreme" that they had both their Robot mode and their alt mode so how is it possible being built?

    In reality, the reconciliation of most of the FANDOM is fanon and a interpretation of contradictory canonical information.

    Nothing in the episode "Heavy metal war" supports the idea that Megatron created them as new life.

    Theres 1 peace of very "VAGUE" dialog, but nothing to qualify it.

    It was the fasns, that applied a definition to Megatrons dialog.But the shows bible proves they were never intended to get a origin story.

    Hardly.

    The dictionary clearly defines "built" the way I use it.

    1. To form by combining materials or parts; construct.

    2. To order, finance, or supervise the construction of: The administration built several new housing projects.
    3. To develop or give form to according to a plan or process; create: build a nation; built a successful business out of their corner grocery store.
    4. To increase or strengthen by adding gradually to: money building interest in a savings account; build support for a political candidate.
    5. To establish a basis for; found or ground: build an argument on fact.

    1. To make something by combining materials or parts.

    2. To engage in the construction or design of buildings: "Each of the three architects built in a different style" (Dwight Macdonald).
    3. To develop in magnitude or extent: clouds building on the horizon.
    4. To progress toward a maximum, as of intensity

    Dr. Frankenstin never intended to create a monster.

    at that point they were Cons.

    New bodies.

    If there had been something in the episode to qualify Megatrons statement, or at least dsupport the idea they were newly created I would agree with you.

    But there isint,
