    one of the many inconsistincies of the show. In fact it has also been said that megatron is one of many Decepticon leaders, in other episodes it says he is the first Decepticon.

    Maybe when Megatron was created, he wasn't created evil, so it's possible good Constructicons created Megatron, who later became a Decepticon, then turned the Constructicons to his side. Perhaps it was the fact they created him that caused him to want them on his side. Maybe the Matriz lied, and instead of being the fountain of wisdom it claims to be, it's really a source od propaganda. Who knows?

    dude, there is screw up like that all through the transformer universe. My peronal favorites are the Aramda-Energon-Cybertron ones.

    And yes i know that Cybertron was not meant to connect to A&E

    So that makes three different origins of the Constructicons then...

    Yep it's a well known paradox, sort of like G1 Wheeljack. Writers aren't perfect, but then again who is? The Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Deceptions. Beyond that. . . .

    Kids are also way less picky about stuff like that.

    During Cybertron while smokescreen / crosswise was having the identity crises, my son picked it up (he is four). And asked my why his name changed. I went on some tirade that its because the writers don<t care (and other fandom whining) He simply shrugged it off and said, "Maybe he wanted a new name?"
    Kids just like the story and characters; continuity is for older collectors that over analyze everything...

    I honesty I could watch a movie like SW EP 1,2,3 through the eyes of a 12 yr old…

    I believe that someone is just doing a half-@$$ job at writing the scripts/story.

    ^ OTM.

    "Call Of The Primitives" also supposes the Dinobots are the creation of Primacron, when the Dinobots early G1 episodes were some of the most popular in the series.

    I'd like to say were past that now, but thats not really true. At least Beast Wars was consistent unto it self.

    Basically the way I see it is the Constructicons were hired to build Megatron. Maybe Shockwave, Soundwave, and Starscream wanted a new leader and had Megatron built to take down the current Decepticon leader. After Megatron came to power he had the Robo-masher built and eventually ran into the Constructicons. After reprogramming them he gave them the form of Devastator as a gift for creating him. Once the Constructicons crashed on Earth Megatron rebuilt them, explaining why Megatron stated that he was glad he built them. As far as Megatron being the first Decepticon, maybe he renamed the army after coming to power but since he has been their leader for more than nine million years most may have forgotten the old factions name and just refer to the pre Decepticon era as Decepticons also.

    I believe that it was the Oracle that was stated as creating the primitives, that would explain why Sky-links says I believe are heading home or something like that. Also when the Oracle says it was Primacron's assistant it shows the Matrix, so the Oracle is also the Matrix which could also be linked to Victor Sigma making all three the creators of the Transformers since Victor Sigma basically is required to give a Transformer life, there are was to explain the creation of the Dinobots without returning to Cybertron like pre-made personality chips. This could also be a way to indirectly tie the Transformers creation to Primus with the Oracle, Matrix, and Victor Sigma being the power of Primus split like the Cyber Plant Keys in Cybertron.

    I think all the episodes that premiered on WB called him Smokescreen but when Cartoon Network picked the episodes up his name was changed to Crosswise in all of his appearances including the ones show on WB as him being Smokescreen. Maybe they will show the rest soon.
