    I remember seeing something like this on a Nat Geo documentary several months ago. I think they called them "Nomad Planets" or something, because of the fact that they're always on the move with no sense of where they're going.

    Wait, Cybertron doesn't have a star? Huh, I thought it did but they used that Solar Harvester thingy on it to power the AllSpark.

    In the Marvel comics, Cybertron got slung out of orbit and was drifting through space.

    In the 1986 movie, Cybertron had Moonbase 1 and 2. A complete technoorganic planet, though how awesome it would be, is impossible outside of Transformers.

    Well a planet and made of completely metal is definitely possible and probably exdists somewhere. Just not covered in cities inhabited by giant robot people. metals are natural elements that make up the crust of our planet.

    Wouldn't a planet the size of Jupiter roaming freely likely be mostly gas like Jupiter and not so much a planet as a failed star?

    I remember reading something about this a while ago.
    It's kinda interesting.
    Maybe some of our space refuse will crash into a nomad planet and grow into robots.
