    Cybertronians are fully mechanical, no organic parts what-so-ever.

    Cybertron was always a machine world, not a cyberformed one.

    the Quints messed with cybertronian history, but did NOT create the cybertronians themselves.

    human weapons (aside from nukes) have no effect on cybertronian armor.

    Prime is a military/political rank, not a pope-like rank. similar to the pre-Fal 'Chavamee Arbiter rank.

    cybertronian weapons fire caseless rounds.

    the 13 do not exist.

    Jazz was too full of himself after defeating Bruticus in FOC that's why he tried to take on Megatron in TF1

    You realize that FOC and TF1 take place in different continuities, right?

    Headcanon doesn't equal fan fiction or completely flipping off what's on screen (that's not addressed to you).

    Well, let me amend my statement. Fan fiction is headcanon, okay, but I don't consider just blatantly going against what's been established as headcanon. Movies and Aligned are different universes.

    Eh, who cares. I've just considered head canon as little bits of info that can help the existing story, not contradict it.

    Logos Prime is really the 13th Prime and not Optimus Prime.

    Mine is that Beast Wars takes place in some alternate G1 'universe,' not the main G1 series itself. Also that Transformers were originally built to be commodity products by the Quintessons, Decepticons being created for other beings they sold them to for use as war bots and Autobots for domestic purposes. Hence why the two factions have certain traits like having red eyes or blue eyes, and their specific 'logos,' this is to show what they are mainly used for.

    However, since their commodities are alive, I think the Quintessons might have bio-engineered their creations based off of themselves (and other techno-organic creatures) rather then make 'true' robots. They also may have the ability to eat things other then energon (but most don't think/know they can do this) mainly going off of seeing the Insecticons, Trypticon, and that odd Japanese comic where the Decepticons are catching humans to eat them (the one with Deathsaurus and Super Megatron.)

    That's all I have for now :)

    -Slingshot wasn't near death, he was first hit by a NERD Brick then got infected by the Chip Plague. He only just got better/ cured with the "Quicksling" upgrade package

    -Devastator's new size is the Constructicon's attempt to return Devastator's threat level to early G1 levels; now, Devastator will no longer be beaten by newer Scramble Type Gestalts

    Every Whirl from all continuities has the same backstory and attitude as he does in MTMTE.

    Animated Rossana eventually formed a singing group with other female Cybertronains called the Kiss Players.

    Beast Machines was a dream one of the maximals had on the way to Cybertron, but Botanica was real.

    Slipstream hauled off Starscreams body and revived him.... Again.

    Animated Jazz, Bumblebee, Sari, Ratchet, Optimus, and Bulkhead gave Prowel a proper funeral on Cybertron.

    There are ton more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

    Orion was the true founder of the modern Decepticons, and he meant for them to be peaceful protesters. Megatron turned them into violent thugs and gangsters.

    Hardshell being more well-spoken and refined than the other Insecticons is because the hive mind has poured most of its knowledge and awareness into him, a primary vessel essentially, causing him to act as a 'head' of the swarm. When he died, another insect would be selected as the primary vessel.
