I know this stuff never will be explained since TF is a kid's show and all, but damn it, I want an official word on it! *What is a Transformer's anatomy? We know they have sparks, brain things, and eyes. Beyond that... There have to be other organs! Machines need lubricants, cooling systems, filtration systems for the lubricating and cooling fluids, power supplies... What do they use for motion? Combustion motors? Electrical motors? Hydraulics? Some sort of banded synthetic muscle fiber? Do any of these motors create waste? Is there a central heart-like pump to move lubrication and cooling fluids? Many pumps for each extremity? Is the electrical power carried throughout their bodies as pure electricity or fuel to be used once it reaches the motor in question? I ask because I'm sick of the "living head" scenario. As it stands, a Transformer is just a head/brain driving an almost unrelated big robot. It's not interesting to have a character totally decapitated and continue living. It's even less interesting to just be able to stick the head back on and everything is fine again. They should be able to bleed to death. They should be able to die when a "vital organ" is obliterated. Cooling pump's blasted clean off your body? Prepare for overheating death. It also puts some rather stupid situations to rest for good. Prime gets cut into pieces by Megatron. He's nothing but a head while his body parts are made into alligators and security systems and whatnot. He's fine. Prime gets cut/shot in the chest, the same chest he doesn't even need to live, and he dies. Huh? Moving on, I want a retraction of the Transformers' ability to scan something. G1 had it right. You get a new body if your old one is destroyed. It's traumatic and horrific and not at all like just putting on a new outfit for the day. Why do I want this? Scanning removes everything that's meaningful about transformation in the first place! Why bother transforming between robot and car when you can scan a robot, be that for a while, scan a car, drive, recall your robot scan, then scan a boat... etc. The scanning totally trumps the more interesting transformation ability. Get rid of it. They can't be whatever they want. They have one body and they know how to turn it into one thing. Maybe by going to the gym (in a metaphorical sense) and working out, training, meditating, etc, they can over time mold their body through discipline into something else.
