    Victor Caroli mentions in the first episode as the show starts, that the Autobots are on the verge of extinction and battle valuebly to survive. Now the thing is how is it possible that the Autobots are on the verge of extinction when they have whole army, even when Prime and his selected crew went for the search mission, i am sure Prime apointed a few Autobots to take charge of things of Iacon back on Cybertron. So its fair to assume that there were a good number of Autobots left behind. Any thoughts?

    Ultra Magnus, Kup, Hot Rod, Springer and the Wreckers... Its safe to assume all those fine chaps were on Cybertron too before coming to Earth.

    The Wreckers were never mentioned in the G1 cartoons

    When Prime's team first leaves in MTMTE Pt.1 I like to think that the new Season 2 Autobots (Tracks, Blaster, Perceptor, Cosmos, Red Alert, Omega Supreme etc.) were all still on Cybertron and came to Earth later aboard Omega Supreme along with the Season 3 Autobots, the Female Autobots and Alpha Trion and probably tons of generics as well

    In my mind, Kup, Springer, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod, Arcee, Sky Lynx, etc were all on Cybertron at some point during the 4 million years Prime's crew spent on Earth.

    I think they were in hiding, the wreckers and Elita's resistance.

    Dude, think about it.

    Even if there were a million of them left it can be said they were on the verge of extinction.

    Its all relative to how many there were before the war started and how many there would be if they never had a war.

    which proves nothing.

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I read the original post. We don't know (or least I don't know, however there maybe be some people at this site who know exactly) how many Transformers there were before the war with the Decepticons.

    When I was a kid I thought the whole cybertronian race was on the verge of extinction, especially the Decepticons

    I always thought that the "Verge of extinction" refered to the lack of Energon, not the lack of Transformers.

    Yep.

    If you want to get picky about it, take the number of seen no name Autobots in the series and compare that with the sheer number of Decepticons seen scrambling on Cybertron when Unicron attacks. At best there's one Autobot for every 5,000 Decepticons.
