    Arcee was the Pyscho Bitch in G1 like she is in IDW, she just hid it for Daniel because she actually cares for him and wants to try to be the nice girl he thinks she is.

    Female transformers exist naturally, no convoluted sex change or colonial adaptations required.

    They are just there.

    Offroad and Alpha Bravo were very close friends before they were chosen as new members for their respective teams.

    All combiners, except Devastator, were never originally built with combination in mind. They are made up of random Cybertronians who are recruited by the team leader.

    All of the different bodies that Optimus Primal has used over the years are different Transformers, with their beast modes each making up different portions of their personalities.

    His bat body is named Reverb, who acts like Batman.
    His first gorilla body is the actual Optimus Primal, and acts completely like himself.
    His Transmetals body is named Blacklight, and is a Maximal enforcer of the Pax Cybertronia.
    His Optimal Optimus body is named Tantrum, and is completely taken over by his beast mode instincts, staying in his Gorilla mode almost all the time. He is an incredibly vicious warrior.
    His Beast Machines body is named Knuckle-Duster, and is a boxer.
    Finally, his 10'th Anniversary body is named Warhead, and is a Bazooka-wielding warrior who is prone to animalistic rages.

    Alpha Bravo's a hot shot rookie, the guy who thinks he's better than everyone else and won't shut up about how awesome he is. He has no respect for his team mates.

    Off Road is the Stunticons' scout.

    Offroad is a psychotic axe murderer who killed Wildrider to ensure his place on the Stunticon team.

    Alpha Bravo joined the Aerialbots after Slingshot was fired for making fun of Silverbolt's fear of heights one too many times.

    My favorite peace of self-eststablished fiction is that Nova Prime is essentially the most wonderful of Cybertronians to exist, but he's so insecure of himself and is consumed by the fear that he will fall to the corruption of the Primes before him, this insecurity eventually lead him to overthink it and lose his sanity, in which he also lost his hope. From there he fell to become the tyrannical Prime similar to the IDW comics. Deep inside though, he knows what he's doing is wrong, but just can't see the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.

    Robotmasters Wingstun is Waspinator during G1. They share a mold. Sport similar colour schemes and both served BW Megatron.

    Off road is Ruckus

    Actionmaster Devestator is the Micromaster version having been contaminated with Nucleon this explaining the AM versions small size.

    The 13 aren't hyper magical beings with prophecies and shit. They're just the first TFs that just had powerful weapons and tools.
    Hell, the concept of Primes altogether. I prefer to stick with Animated system's of "It's just a rank."

    Except Vector Prime. 'Cause he's cool.

    With virtually no backstory media we were aware of, a friend and I made Spark/Pyro female in our stories we were writing. I still think of him as a her to this day.

    And the Unicron Trilogy characters were all The Swarm incarnate post Marvel G2, attempting to replicate their own version of Cybertron in a grand experiment to see if the Great War could ever be mitigated. As such, they created their own versions of Optimus, Megatron and company. Eventually, denizens of Cybertron I and II encountered one another and, after the demise of Cybertron II, incorporated themselves in with I's society.

    Not a whole lot has happened since then as that's kind of where we stopped writing and playing with Transformers. You know...girlfriends became wives, family responsibilities, yadda yadda yadda....

    G1 cartoon universe, the s2 Autobots were dormant in the Ark for the first season.

    The Constructicon origin in "The Secret of Omega Supreme" stands. When Megatron said they "built" them in "Heavy Metal War" he meant they were reformatted and/or repaired after their arrival on Earth.

    There really are not supernatural elements in the TF universe, only technology, and ancient technology. Primus is not a god, but a scientist and the inventor of a process to transfer the mind from the organic, humanoid lifeforms Transformers used to be to a mechanical structure, thus achieving immortality. After having successfully performed the process on thirteen council members he left planet Cybertron to spread his gift to other worlds. The new bodies he had given himself and the Thirteen, who now themselves had learned to perform the mind transfer process, were reminiscent of their now abandoned organic ones, explaining their designs, as well as the very human ways in which Transformers think and feel. After having entered a golden age war struck the planet and the Thirteen scattered across the universe. Great portions of the ancient technology such as the spaces bridges and history, including Transformer´s organic origin, were forgotten, but the latter hinted at in MTMTE, when Nightbeat observed increasingly robotized organic humanoids on a planet he was infiltrating, and thought "what if this is how us Cybertronians started out?". The legend of Primus and the Thirteen however lived on, and received mythological dimensions as Primus achieved godlike status. Alpha Trion of course knows his race´s origins, but he chooses not reveal it for reasons unknown.

    That reminds me. Our version of Primus and Unicron were humans who built moon-sized battle stations and were transported back to the beginning of the universe. The over-arching storyline was revealed to be that all machinations leading to humanity and the Transformers and their predestined encounters were all leading to self-actualization. Essentially, the entire space and time between the beginning of the Universe to the moment Unicron and Primus are sent to the past is one massive time loop. Heinrad and other time agents were established to ensure the time loop was preserved by a secret organization. In our story, Cheetor actually had the chance to end the loop by destroying Unicron before he gets sent into the past but Cheetor decided against it.

    In my canon, each universe has its own Thirteen original Primes' thus fixing all of the storylines where they exist and become one with the Allspark. Also Optimus Prime is only a member of the Thirteen in the Prime / RID timeline.

    Primus and Unicron don't exist, and are only made up myths.

    Since my Head Canon is heavily based off the Aligned/Prime Continuity I'm going to list my top five most interesting notes. I do have more but I'm just putting a limit on it so as not to be too long a list.

    1) The Autobots and Decepticons first engaged on Earth during the 1990's. After a fifteen year absence humanity assumed both sides had left but in truth the Autobots remained on Earth for fifteen years before having to re-engage their enemies. Both factions had hidden bunkers on Earth which during the silence had fallen into a state of disrepair.

    2) Planet X, a Cybertronian colony, is used a prison for Unicron's spark before escaping and turning almost all the inhabitants into his mindless slaves. He orders them to convert their planet into his new body before transforming them into his heralds.

    3) Post war, Rodimus is titled the new Prime while Optimus reverts back to Orion Pax and becomes the head of the new Cybertron council with Elita One as his First Lady. Override, now declared Velocitron's leader and part-time ambassador, trains the new Prime in becoming a leader while developing a close relationship with him. ;) 

    4) During the age of Quintesson rule, Jhiaxus experimented on Arcee which results in a clone of herself. While one Arcee is rescued by a Cybertron Freedom Fighter group known as the Wreckers the other is recovered by one mercenary, Lockdown. The clone would become the bounty hunter's attaché and be known as Flamewar.

    5) The original Optimus Prime used Orion Pax as a vessel to protect the Matrix of Leadership, doubling as a trainer towards the young archivist. When his spark was removed from the Matrix to prevent Unicron's awakening he found himself in the clutches of the Chaos-Bringer himself. Over time Unicron would slowly corrupt into his most powerful herald and the physical manifestation of everything he once stood for: Nemesis Prime. Meanwhile, Orion Pax took the namesake of his mentor to honor him, unaware of what has happened.
