    When Transformers transform, do they do it themselves, like a muscle, or is it like a program that they access?

    Canon refers to a Transformation Cog with which to control their transformations. Though with the introduction of Stealth Mode I figure there is some kind of middle shift in the modes for that.

    They did it themselves, but it didn't work like human muscles work, it was more complex, and the alt mode were files saved on their memories when they scanned earth vehicles.

    I like both methods, to be honest. A "program" to access like in Beast Wars (by initiating the vocal command "Maximize!" or "Terrorize!") and as a more organic "reflex". I'd go so far as to say that in the movieverse (and shows like Animated, Prime as well) have it act as a "muscle". Maybe "muscle" isn't the right word. Transformation at will. They think it, they do it. Like jumping or running. It's a physical-mental action, rather than a computer command.

    I think that more or less explains it, though I prefer the "muscle" theory. The idea of calling out something before transforming just sounds stupid to me.

    I always thought of as 'muscle' or them doing it themselves.

    I think it's like a muscle and it comes as second nature to them just like running, talking, etc.
