    Like the title says, there wouldn't of been any Autobots if Starscream would of listened to Megatron, when they were on top of the volcano and Starscream started firing. When Megatron told him not to, in order to save his energy since they were in stasis lock for 4 million years, but Starscream as always ignored Megatron and kept firing knocking Prime under the beam. Like I said if Starscream would of listened to Megs no Autobots.

    What do you people think?

    I think you're thinking about it too much.
    I think "what if" scenarios are incredibly lame.
    I think that if plot devices are negated, stories don't advance. So what happens was meant to happen and it couldn't be otherwise.

    The stupidity of that is kind of the reason I really can't get into G1 as a whole. I know im the minority but still.

    Well they would still be there, but it would be pretty plain if they had left the ark built the starcruiser and went back to Cybertron.

    Starscream doesn't always like to think things through. He has plenty of stupid moments in G1, so I chalk it up to Starscream being Starscream.

    If Megs had listened to Starscream, the Autobots would have been blown away shortly after the meteor shower. THAT would have made for a short series.

    Technically, if the volcano hadn't popped off, there wouldn't be any ANYBODY. :)

    Would HAVE, op, not would of.

    And there wouldn't be any Decepticons, if the Autobots didn't bring them here.

    And there wouldn't be any Transformers, if there was no Diaclone.

    And there wouldn't be Diaclone if Shoji Kawamori (of Escaflowne and Macross fame) didn't design them.

    And Shoji Kawamori wouldn't design the figures if he wasn't a fan of Space Battleship Yamamoto.

    So clearly it's all the Starblazer's fault!

    Oh, yes, by the way: That was an example of reading too much into things, as mentioned above.

    Oh my god, this can't be happening.

    I thought these overthought "what if..." G1 scenario threads were DONE with a long time ago. I do not enjoy the prospect of this crap starting up again.
