    As fiction ever put numbers on the Cybertronian population? In Prime it´s quoted that millions died for example, so it´s safe to say their population must be around those numbers or maybe even more.

    Well if the Earth has like over a few billion humans Cybertron must have had double or triple that.

    How do you figure? Cybertron is smaller than earth in many continuities (bigger in some), and a world that has been ravaged by global civil war and resource scarcity for millions of years. If anything, their population would be much smaller, I would think.

    The confounding factor, however, would be cybertronians living on OTHER planets, colonies and whatnot.

    Dont forget that the average cybertronian is the size of 13-20 humans

    I agree. It's gotta be far less than the number of people on Earth.

    there was something i read once that once cybertron had a certain population no new transformers would come into being. to properly sustain itself no new sparks would come out of vector sigma.

    Didn't they say that the population before the war was about 10 million or so? I swear I heard that somewhere.

    I always think of Cybertron being more or less the mass of earth because they seem to have the same Gravity

    It probably is, however there's obviously a lot more metal on it so that could skew things.

    well, earth's core is mostly metal, but still, it could be pretty different in size and still have an approximate gravity, depending on makeup.

    To be honest, I've always guessed around only 400,000-500,000 based on how small the planet is with how big the Transformers are.

    Dunno, I imagine Cybertron being really big and also the cybertronian population being in the billions. Or else with a civil war that lasted millions the population would have driven itself to extinction.

    this is a sci/fi series.

    "Gravity" can be artificially generated.

    Gravity is dependant on mass. The varible would be ow much of cybertron is hollow

    who knows if there was ever such a time.

    Either they are the creations of Primus or the Quintasons....either way, one of their creators reshaped Cybertron.Either may have built gravity generators for their creations.

    are you?

    This is a sci/fi fantasy series we are talking about here.Just about anything is possible

    No less in both main G1 continuities, we have Cybertron being shaped and rebuilt by either a God or by manufactures.

    Even if Cybertron didnt have its own gravity, Primus gave the planet gravity by some means, or the Quints built gravity generators.

    99.9% of humans live on the Earth's surface. I've always imagined that Cybertron has a massive underground population. I think there could easily be billions of Transformers on Cybertron, or even trillions, due to there being a much greater percentage of livable space on the planet.
