    Masterforce tells us that the Autobot Pretenders have been on earth for at least a good million years, implying that they have been around and kicking through the whole Beast Wars and G1 as well, which brings us to my following question...

    How many of the plot holes in G1 and Beast Wars, do you think, we could explain with "Pretenders did it"? Basically meaning they were somehow involved, off-screen - but how?

    I'd throw in some theories myself but it's been a while since I watched G1 so I can't even remember any plot holes.

    Megatron created the Constructicons on Earth, but they also existed on ancient Cybertron too?

    The Pretenders did it.

    Whenever Ultra Magnus can't deal with something, the Pretenders deal with it on his behalf.

    How do a lot of humans in G1 get thrown into walls without a scratch or pick up stuff that weighs a ton? They were Pretenders all along!

    Chip Chase being immune to acid rain and being more of a genius than super-advanced alien robots, all while being confined to a wheelchair? Guess what baby...

    A better way of phrasing it is what did Pretenders actually do other than keeping the Decepticon Pretenders trapt throughout the world for a million years??

    They just spent all their time being worshiped as living gods. When that fell out of fashion they all got hobbies, except Diver who continued to be worshiped as a male love god.

    I always loved the Pretenders concept from Masterforce. It reminds me a lot of Highlander, where they have different lives through their long lives...

    Megatron just reformatted the Constructicons' Cybertronian forms into Earth modes during Heavy Metal War. And those who created Megatron in the flashback during Five Faces of Darkness wouldn't have been any of the six we are familar with.

    So whats the problem there?

    Remember that time he stood up for a second? Remember that time he shed his shell and turned into an orbital jet? There ya go.

    I might be mis-remembering some of that. :)

    Ah but when they were buds with Omega Supreme in Cybertrons Golden age, the Constructicons turned into modern-day EARTH construction vehicles. Nice Cybertron modes!

    and yes, The Pretenders did it.

    You know how Florida never gets new Transformers?
    That's not Pretenders. That's Cybertron Crosswise. :D 

    I take it that they aren't compelled to kill each other for unknown purposes?
