    Is known that the Allspark was took out Cybertron 4 million years ago. And because of that no new life or new autobots were born. But I dont understand something

    If thats true, shouldnt be our favorites autobots a bit more older? I mean they MUST have 4 million years old! A least if some sparks were carried and locked away from the decepticons, until it was safe to create new sparklings.

    Can you answer me this problem?

    Just because the allspark can create life doesn't mean it is the only way to create life.

    That'd be boring if the all-spark was the only way life was created for them.

    Their time would be very different than ours. What we consider a year is because of our position in the solar system and the math behind it. What they may consider a year could be infinitely different.

    The Allspark probably just give girth to the Transformers as a species.
    They probably reproduce through different means.

    It's mentioned multiple times in the series that bots are brought online, manufactured or produced.

    The Allspark gave life to the species in the beginning, but from then on, they started making their own offspring (by building protoforms).

    None of that sick budding or other twisted vile stuff from other TF versions..just plain old robot builds robot! :)

    Autobot mastery of space bridge technology, and their strategic relocation of the AllSpark led to ultimate victory, and a Cybertron where an entire generation has seen neither armor-plating nor transistor of a Decepticon.

    here (transformers wiki)said something different...I think

    Remember that movie, Robots or something, where dad and mother just imported their son?

    Yeah that's probably it.

    The reason the relocation of the Allsaprk was so important was because ,while it originally gave life to the transformers, It worked wonders as a WMD.

    As seen in the show premier.

    And that entire generation that has "seen neither armor-plating nor transistor of a Decepticon" was obviously made after the war.

    Well, of course, the Allspark could also generate an entire armies of new warriors, so Megatron could use it both ways. As all powerful superbeam weapon, and to reinforce his troops with infinite legions.

    And yes, I concur with what others said. The Cybertronians have other means than the Allspark to "reproduce".

    Think of the Allspark as simply a terminal accessing a larger entity.
    Variations would include the autobot matrix and vector sigma from G1.
    Or the oracle from beast machines.
    All tied into a larger system like maybe primus.
    Each continuity has it's own rules.
    The allspark triggered life on cybertron initially,
    but now the process is self-sustaining.

    Where did the figure of 4,000,000 years come from? I've never heard it mentioned in the movie-verse.

    I think we all are forgetting something...

    PRIMUS.

    Think about it. Why would the Allspark exist in the first place? I mean, no one would just randomly make it for no reason. The humans never heard of the Transformers until they came on Earth, and I don't know if there's another sentient species.

    I'm pretty sure that if the interdimensional god-entity Primus would exist in the Animated-continuity, it would have been mentioned by somebody, or anybody.

    No, the Allspark exists on its own, and is an object that contains the secret of life itself, unless the authors will bring in the Primus, which will be quite unlikely, as the authors don't like bringing Unicron, and therefore his counterpart, Primus. Also, this time, the prime-title is just a military rank, not a designation for a chosen one who leads the people of Cybertron.

    When? It was made clear that it had been a long time since the Decepts had been seen or heard of, but I don't recall a specific number...

    I think Megatron mentioned at one point "four million steller cycles" he had been searchign for the Allspark in the pilot. Assuming he started looking for the Allspark after the war ended...


    Then who made Primus? See, it's not always that simple. The Allspark is a rock/crystal, so it could've formed naturally and not have been created by anyone. Hell, it could've created itself. The box it's in was made by TFs, though.
