Origin/Essence/Personality of TF in G1 In g1 usa, vector sigma gave Stunticons, Combaticons (I believe) and Aerialbots "life" and only vector sigma or a merged a3 (alpha trion) could. Ironic, dinobots were made before that from wheeljack, no vector sigma required. Grimlock created cornytron, I mean computron, no vector required. Autobot City, Metroplex made on Earth, no vector required. (Same Trypticon) Green goblins made Scorponok and Fort Max, no vector required. Prime came back twice from quintesson, no vector required. (Prime should have kidnapped that quint to rebuild wheeljack, etc - how can robots die, just rebuild them like quint did prime) Same Ultra with magic wax from Junkions. Unicrons eyes blasts starscream and he lives again via deal. So I find it funny only vector could, but yet everyone pops up or lives again anyway. Then after g1, cybertron is primus who gave birth to tf. Yet both primus and unicron could live and transform in beginning of time (before tf race), no vector required. If they were smart, they would have sold a vector sigma toy or even unrelated a matrix/primus essence like tmnt "goo" since they blabbed about vector gave birth to tf basically (first vector, then quintesson, then primus, then lol) for a few episodes then later tf can "live" without vector/a3/primus like jap hm, targetmasters, walletmasters lol etc.
