    They have blood and hearts. We have blood and hearts. They have two eyes, two arms, and two legs just like we do. They move their mouths (the ones who have mouths) in the same way we do to produce the same sound vocalizations. They appear to see very similarly to how we see. We have gender. They appear to have gender as well.

    What else to humans and TFs have in common? Do we have some organs that are similar or do similar functions? Do we both consume food in a similar way? How far do the similarities go between the Prime humans and the Prime bots?

    I often have pondered on whether or not the TFs eat or drink anything of sorts.

    As of now I think all there food, drink, ammo, weapons, and currency is Energon. I would like it in some future incarnation of TF's for Energon to be Expanded on, like how does Energon grow. It doesn't make any since for TF's to only need one thing for Consumption, Humans need Multiple things to live; so I asume there should be more things beside Energon; In G1 there was some green crystals needed foe Transforming

    Of course there is a lot of things in this franchise that needs to be filled in. Arcee's Oil remarks from TFPrime suggest there's some sort of Oil on Cybertron, that isn't to our knowledge a Fossil fuel. They need a real Currency not just Energon. Beyond the fact that there is Autobots and Decepticons fighting, and there is little substance to the story beyond that.

    Energon needs to be defined.

    I wonder what would happen if a TF ate Human Food and Drinks?
    Would they get sick, die, or nothing.

    Also also do TF's have a since of Taste, and Smell; If all they eat or drink is Energon would they need taste buds if they had only one flavor?

    Well in the G1 continuity at least, we know that they can drink out of energon cubes (which in turn can make them comically drunk) and eat energon wafers like biscuits. Don't recall ever seeing them doing that in Prime though.

    TFs are somewhat similar to humans.

    TF have proteges, take baths, worry about their finish, the obvious have feelings, I forgot what TF series, they sleep and snore.

    I'm not surprised that there's a bunch of similarities between Cybertronians and Humans, considering that Unicron hanging out in the Earth's core likely influenced our evolution.

    From what we have seen, these Transformers are NOT like our every day machines. To call them robots is an offense. They are robotic organisms that have bio-mechanisms, which function similar to our fleshy organs. They are a lot more like humans than you think. They just have different terms for them, like circuitry being their nerves and/or veins.

    Yeah when I hear people (or even characters) call them robots I'm like.. 'They're not robots, they're living sentient organisms..' I just keep it to myself though..
    It kinda makes me wonder if they get offended. Maybe not 'cause they've said "We're robots in disguise" like twice already in this season.

    The fact that Ratchet got offended when Raf asked the question, and Optimus came to correct his mistake by saying they are autonomous robotic organisms, pretty much sums up the big picture.
