    We all know certain Cybertronians have human-like features. Sentinel Prime's beard, Ironhide's nose, and others, even though they don't need them. Well, I have come up with an answer as to why this is:
    The AllSpark is supposed to be at least semi-sentient, right? What if it had observed Earth, and humans, before creating Cybertron and its inhabitants? Maybe the AllSpark made Cybertronians have beards, even though they don't need them because it wanted them to be more like humans. That would explain the noses, beards, eyebrows, and any other human-like features on any Cybertronian.

    I have a feeling that this will get shot down pretty quickly, but who knows!

    The reason they have hair and beards and stuff is because they are robotic organisms. Unlike in G1 where they are pretty much robots, the movies have them as actually organic in some ways.

    They are much older than us! When the Fallen arrived on Earth to build Harvester, on Cybertron Energon was not enough! The people walked into the skins in that time... Does this mean that what we were created in THEIR image and likeness, and not vice versa...?

    The only organic feature that irks me was Que's hair. Jetfire, Sentinel, and the Dreads were just fine with metal hair and bears and dreadlocks, but Que is just freaky looking. Brains applies here as well, despite both being likable characters.

    I was worried that someone would point this out. All I will say is, until we have official dates of when the Cybertronians were created I will stick with my theory. How do we know that Cybertron and Cybertronians came first? We don't.

    I'm guessing Transformers blink to keep their optics free of dirt and moisture, like windshield wipers.

    The movie transformers are much more mechanical creatures than just "beep-boop I am robot feed me oil." They grow, they age, they change in more than just the obvious way.

    This, and also the fact that they are living organisms, as was previously pointed out already. They may have certain features, characteristics, ext. that we find similar, but to say that we were created in their image is ridiculous.

    These things are not God, they're a fictional character. Let's not get carried away here.

    Okay, that's actually a mistype on my part, I'm sorry. I meant to say, "How do we know they (meaning Cybertronians) came first." I'm trying to say that they were created in our image. Sorry about that misunderstanding... I'll go fix it now...

    They are giant robotic ORGANISMS. They are more than just machines, they are living machines.

    THIS.

    And also this. Sure, they were the closest thing to resembling human hair, but Que's "hair" - in my opinion - were fibre-optic-cable-dealios; definitely not human hair. Brains' "hair", well, I can picture in my mind what it is, but I can't put it in words. And since it's constantly smoking, it's safe to say it isn't human hair either.
