So, the Transformers, or cybertronians, whatever, are pretty screwed. Their war isnt helping their population any. They don't have any source of energon so protoforms can survive. The cube is screwed, and they can't use Earth's sun for the energy. To add to this, I think that the Decepticons are the ones in control of the protoforms. I dont have any solid backing me up on this, but that scene with Meg's a Starscream arguing was in a protoform hive, for lack of a better term. The Autobots didnt make any mention to the protoforms. The con's dont have enough energon to support them too. If they did, that might be good for the population, but they'd just be sent to war and the casulties will stack. It's looking pretty grim for those giant robots.
