    Is there any proper way to announce them? Other than He/She/Her/Him? I know there are genders for each bots, but how do you call them by?

    He/she. Unfortunately, there's no non-gendered pronoun in the English language when referring to people.

    Yes. To be fair I think there's a bit of an implication that their language functions a bit different...but the audience speaks English so it has to be rendered in our language.

    Well Elita-1 and Optimus could've gotten married. And then she could be Mrs. Prime.

    I think with Cybertronians there is really no genders, so when they came to earth they chose their "gender" based on personality, not actual anatomy.
