    In my mind the Maximal-Predacon war went down like this: Jhixaus created the Predacons by splicing the CNA of the strongest Cybertronians (a la Serpentor) planning to restart the war in a grand Darwinian experiment, but many defected and joined Fortress Maximus' faction under the moniker "Maximals". The war was fought with no clear winner, but Tripredacus and the Insecticon horde eventually rose to power through sheer numbers.

    [My ideal sequel to the G1 comics, just because: Cobra recovers and repairs Starscream, Shockwave, and Megatron with the help of a captive Ratchet and kidnapped Buster, only for Megatron to go rogue and dig up Galvatron II. The duo destruction incarnate attack Cobra HQ to 'secure' Ratchet, then start leveling cities for shits 'n' giggles. Spike, Fortress Maximus, the Action Force (GI Joe), UNIT, and The Doctor all do a team up to rescue their comrades and stop Megatron and his alternate-future-self from ripping a (second) hole in the fabric of space-time, all while Cobra, Starscream, and Shockwave forge false alliances and put their own hidden agendas for the widening time-rift into play.]

    In my canon Scamper is actually a smaller body for Metroplex that he can download into to interact with the more normal sized TFs.

    AOE never happened, instead the Chicago battle ends similar to how it did in the novel, with Megatron and co. departing to repair Cybertron and the Autobots doing what they can to help humanity pick up the pieces and rebuild Chicago. Perhaps an Autobot or two stays behind (like Bumblebee) to keep an eye on Earth. Optimus and Megatron then rule Cybertron as equals, Megatron being in command of defending the planet from internal and external threats, while Optimus is in control of humanitarian (Cybertronian?) duties and scientific exploration.

    I like this. I really wished that the movie followed the books ending.

    So the whole Knight thing is a tradition and a big part of cybertronian culture. In cybertronian Prime is another word for legendary knight. Sentinel, Zeta, Optimus are all from the lineage of these legendary knights of cybertron. Other knights include Megatron, Starscream, and the Dinobots.

    Thanks! :)  Ya it really peeved me off that the movie ended with Optimus going all axe-crazy (literally!) and decapitsting Megatron when he was offering a truce.

    I think that's part of the reason why Movie Prime is often seen as bloodthirsty. That and "give me your face."

    And they had a chance to give him some character development, but status quo is Primus so Optimus was kept a violent killer. :(

    I think a part of that is that's what the casual movie goer knows Prime as.

    I think that's a darn shame. :( 

    Headcanon: Brawn survived his harrowing brush with shoulder-induced dead and became a Decepticon prisoner during the Battle of Autobot City.

    In my canon, Punch and Counterpunch are two personalities in the same Spark. One chose Autobot, the other Decepticon. Neither one is aware of the other.

    I like this. Interesting story possibilities here, so, how do the personalities take over one another?

    I haven't figured that out, but each thinks that they are suffering blackouts when the other personality is active. I'm thinking something similar to Ben/Glory in season 5 of Buffy.

    In my headcanon, Tracks doesn't talk with Locust Valley Lockjaw like a robotic Thurston Howell III.
    Also, in my headcanon, he has a faceplate (like his toy).

    A few IDWverse headcanons:

    - Spinning off from his brief appearance in exRID #34 (I think?) and his depiction as a highly intelligent born leader in other fiction, Rhinox was an important founding father of post-Thirteen Cybertronian society, but was airbrushed from history due to Nova Prime and Galvatron's hatred of beasts.

    - Clampdown (that police car Red Alert redeco? not sure how well known this guy is) was a cop in the Senate days, and enjoyed the Clampdown so much that he renamed himself after it. During the war, his aptitude for, and enjoyment of, killing Decepticons landed him a spot with the Wreckers. Soon after that, he got locked in a room with a group of angry 'Cons, and Whirl. He didn't survive. Make of that what you will.

    - Scorponok and Abraham Dante are either a major part of that mysterious organisation from MTMTE/LL, or more of their victims a la Grimlock.

    Not sure if any of this has been said before, but if it has, I'm saying it again.

    Junkion is a fully-fledged planet instead of a satellite of junk, and a forgotten colony world at that, and life is essentially Mad Max: Fury Road.

    This is my headcanon: In the G1 cartoon, the 1986 minibots have pretty infantile personalities: Swerve is a bad driver, Tailgate can't tell the difference between sentient machines, Outback loves to break rules and Pipes is easily impressed. The reason for these personalities, is because they were created in 2006 after Autobot City was attacked. Because they have been online for such a short time, they act like young children at times.
