    It always bugged me did The Constructicons built Megatron? We see in the episode the Secret Of Omega Supreme, when The Constructions welcomed Omega Supreme they seemed nice, how can they be nice if they are the ones that created Megatron, they didnt knew that Megatron was about to start a war?

    This is on eof of those thing from G1 you just don't want to think about too much, like how the Constructicons could form Devastator inside Astrotrain.

    It just leads to mental pain.

    Even DR Frankenstein did not intend to create a monster.

    He said he "built" them, he never claimed to have "created" them as new life.

    i always assumed that the master builders created megatron and eventually went on to become the constructicons over time before megatron corrupted them into being his slavishly loyal decepticon followers

    Well who said they are THE constructicons!? G1 is full of robots that look like each other.

    I always took it that when the constructicons built Megatron, there were no factions yet. He was the first of the new "flying" transformers. The constructicons were still good and friends with Omega Supreme. It was later that Megatron decided to rebel and start the Decepticon faction. He later turned them bad with reprogramming, and then had rebuilt them on earth as they had at some time gone into stasis, probably from damage received in a battle.

    Is it official? No. Does it work to link all the contradictory stories together? Yes. We saw in War Dawn that Megatron was looked up to by Orion Pax. So they had no idea he was a bad guy. It's fathomable that even the Constructicons had no idea what would become of what they built.

    It's not impossible to link the contradictory stories together, but you do have to make up some stuff and twist some lines of dialogue into having a meaning they weren't originally intended to have. The FFoD appearance of the Constructicons is one of the more interesting ones to me, though, 'cause with "Heavy Metal War" and "The Secret of Omega Supreme", the contradiction is right there in the scripted dialogue, but purely in the animation of FFoD. I'd love to see the script for that episode - I've always wondered whether or not the appearance of the Constructicons in it is part of the script there, too, or the casual whims of the sub-par animation studio.

    I disagree, you dont have to "twist" the dialog at all.

    Megatrons line in "Heavy metal war" was vague, and its only from the "perception" of the fans can anyone try to determine what he ment by "built".

    There is nothing in the dialog or the episode as a whole that can "qulify" what Megatron ment by saying he "built" the Constructicons.

    Which means the so called "contradiction" was never in the script/episode.

    Exactly! I "built" a Boombox for the custom contest, but it was using parts from other robots that already existed.

    "built" could mean "rebuilt."

    I tend to go with most people's thoughts in this thread.

    Constructicons build Megatron.

    He becomes a warlord.

    Megatron reprograms Constructicons.

    Constructicons need to be rebuilt on Earth for whatever reason. Maybe they were disembodied like the Combticons were.

    It never bothered me. They showed how Orion Pax became Optimus Prime.

    That's how I explain it. There could be an entire class of robots that look like the constructicons. Only the official constructicons can form Devastator.
