    When the Constructicons built him, was he a badly injured Decepticon or Autobot before and was re-constructed like Orion Pax/Optimus Prime or was he just built from scratch?

    Don't think about it.

    Seriously, everything from the G1 cartoon that involves the Constructicons' past is just one giant continuity clusterfuck.

    ^QFT. Real answer? The cartoon was hoping you didn't remember seasons 1 and 2 and just bought the new toys

    Yep, Constructicons built Megatron so that later in the series he can build the Constructicons on Earth.
    Even though the Constructicons and Omega Supreme were friends on Cybertron eons ago.

    A bit off topic.

    When it comes to origins I'm more in favor of the working class revolutionary origins. It just seems more original then an ancient threat

    I agree. I like him as a Fascist Hilter type in how he came to power and tries to take over Cybertron.

    Most to-the-point answer. Wheeljack30, expect a lot of your questions to simply get "fan theories suggest X, but the cartoon never went into detail, official after-the-fact fiction Y later said Z" as the most honest answer.

    Maybe Megatron just build the same Constructicons like they had on Cybertron already. Having the same names and stuff. And that their vehicle modes looked the same on Cybertron a million years ago is just coincidence. Or a wizard did it.

    Maybe he was a wussy version of Megatron before the constructicons built him like Orion Pax was before he became Optimus, :)

    Exactly! But let's play devil's advocate and pretend this all somehow actually happened. I would say that the constructicons weren't actually "created" in the first season episode "Heavy Metal War." I would say that what happened is that the Decepticons "created" the constructicons in Heavy Metal War the same way that Starscream "created" the combaticons in "Starscream's Brigade." I always like to try to find some way to make things like this make sense, even when they clearly don't.

    Basically, we can have an animation error retcon this for us. Yes Megatron was built by some Constructicons, but not the same ones he made later. I think in that flashback scene there are multiple Scrappers for example.

    The Constructicons are time travelers. But they keep this a secret.

    It's like Terminator. Megatron built the Constructicons on Earth so he could send them back to the past to ensure that he'd be built on Cybertron, millions of years before. Like John Conner sending his dad back to make sure he was born. haha

    i think Omega Supreme just lost his marbles. His brain got all jacked up by that thingy so he probably just remembers it all wrong :p 


    thats how i explain it anyway

    Prime just rolled with it cuz he needed Omega to bust some heads lol

    Maybe any robots who did construction were painted lime green. So it wasn't the "Devastator" contructicons. It was just some "Union workers" that were painted green too. Yeah, whatever. Whenever there's any thread trying to explain G1 cartoon errors, I always tell myself i won't get sucked into it, but I do anyway, then I end up with a headache. I will say it made sense as a kid, so that's really all they were going for, not for a bunch of adults to come up with explanations, so whatever. Rumble is blue, Cyclonus is Bombshell, Brawn is alive

    Explaining these issues gets easier when you open your mind to what the dialog actuality says vr's what you think you remember it saying.

    As kids, we took certin things said and assumed particular definitions, as if the dialog was definitive, when in truth it was pretty vague.
