Well, we know that there are a lot of loopholes and unexplained errors on the G1 series. Is there such an episode/scene that made you scratch your head in cofusion? Here's mine. In the episode titled "The Killing Jar", Ultramagnus, Cyclonus, Wreck-Gar, and Marissa were abducted by the quintessons. Before abducting Magnus, the quintesson was talking to his sharkticon "bodyguard" about how interesting Magnus is, his programming, his behavior on certain situations among others. Then they next abducted Cyclonus, who, in the quintesson's own words, "similar in program to ultramagnus". I said WTF? Ok, i concede that in G1, the quintessons created the transformers. But wasn't Cyclonus created by unicron from the body of bombshell/skywarp (take your pick)? Then how the hell could the quintessons knew about cyclonus' behavior and claim that they created him too?
