    So we all know that Cyclonus a Reformat of a dead/damaged decepticon, though one of the good ol' G1 F-ups leave some to believe he could have been a Reformat of BOMBSHELL OR SKYWARP...


    I believe It was intended to be Bombshell, However I like the Skywarp Idea better,

    What Do you guys think? Bombshell? Or Skywarp?

    both.

    there are actually two of them, and they like to trade places at various times, to fool galvatron.

    Doesn't matter, as both Skywarp and Thundercracker were already dead. Their Sparks had already rejoined the Matrix. (Yes, I know that's a retcon.) Therefore, Scourge is not Thundercracker and Cyclonus is neither Bombshell nor Skywarp. They were simply made from the parts of the former Decepticons' corpses. If they even have Sparks, they were probably formed out of Unicron's own Spark.

    ehh i don't know what movie you've been watching. but i recall the seekers being still alive when they were pushed out of astrotrain. "get! make room for others!" so they're pretty much still alive. http://www.zmfts.t15.org/pvc_thundercracker_autobot_city_damage_movie.jpg

    as you can see, they are all still clearly still alive.

    and as for the insecticons... in the series, there were thousands of them!

    so it is safe to say that they were still alive too, lol

    so it is still debatable on which is which. as neither thundercracker, skywarp, or bombshell, were dead. like you claimed.

    Its pretty much the same either way. Both were dead and reformatted with completely different personalities, so either works.
    I prefer Skywarp though, because I loved the little implications that Animated Cyclonus was Animated Skywarp.

    *waves hands in a theatrical manner*

    "We'll neeeeeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrr knowwwwwwwwwwwwww!"




    I dunno, to me, from a character perspective, it makes more sense for it to be Skywarp, but it's entirely possible it's someone else, or that they were made from spare parts.

    Doesn't matter to me either way, but I like to have some fun with it. I have my toy display shelves somewhat paralleled in a sense, where Cyclonus & "his armada" are on my Season 3 shelf in the exact same place that Bombshell and Skywarp stand on my Season 1/2 shelf.

    Both.

    According to the bio for Universe 2.0 Cyclonus, reference is made to his origin as being "built from the chassis of deactivated Decepticons", and his RtS Battle In Space comic appearance has him make mention of having had to delve deep into the memories he has gained from those dead Decepticons he was built from to understand some old challenge term Rodimus uses (one that even Kup was clueless about).

    Honestly, it's the only logical answer.

    Yeah, as Autobot Burnout stated, Hasbro kinda killed this debate by saying that Cyclonus was created out of the remains of MULTIPLE Decepticons. But hey, if you want Cyclonus to be one or the other in your own continuity, knock yourself out.

    You could ALSO consider that all of the characters in question showed up with clones during seasons 1 & 2, be it on purpose (Insecticons having the ability to clone themselves) or by accident (animation error with multiples of the same colour Seeker on screen... or was it an error?). So it's possible that the Decepticons used weren't even the original characters. Why did we never see Thundercracker or Skywarp again? Maybe they went to Lord Gyconi's Pit of Destruction to work as enforcers, because they were sick of the war.

    In my mind, the insecticons get upgraded into the deluxe insecticons (Barrage, Chop Shop and Ransack) by Unicron as the Sweeps instead of being merely clones of Scourge.

    Thundercracker became Scourge, not Skywarp or Bombshell.
    From Bombshell and Skywarp, one became Cyclonus and one became his "Armada".

    I prefer Skywarp do to his being a seeker. In my personal TFverse Skywarp was not completely dead when he was formatted and Cyke does experience some of his memories but only when he is powered down.

    You know, of all the random and miscolored Seekers, I don't ever think Skywarp's deco (or something similar) was one of them. There was obviously the purples and varying shades of blue not-Thundercrackers, but I don't recall any other black ones except Skywarp.

    Yeah, I was kinda aware of that, but I was only forwarding that theory as a joke. I know that the real answer was that Hasbro wanted to sell new toys, so they added this element of ambiguity as to the creation of these new characters to pick up on the maximum amount of fans. I.E. if you really liked Skywarp, go buy Cyclonus! But hey, if you really liked Bombshell, go buy Cyclonus!

    I stand by my belief: it was Bombshell, which I like better. BUT, I do believe it makes more sense for, and intended to be Skywarp. It does make a LOT more sense to have the Seekers be the main guys, and the Insecticons as the dummies. But I like Bombshell more, and that foreground can't be ignored.
