    And if you hand-wave away the millions of years by saying that Cybertronians experience time differently, that makes their 20 or so years on Earth even more ridiculous for how much happened.

    Update on Oilmaster: I decided that both the jet and the truck ARE named Oilmaster. The truck was heavily in debt, which resulted in collection agencies / creditors mistakenly going after Oilmaster-the-jet, which led to the jet hunting down the other Oilmaster.

    My version of the Headmaster technology. (I'll probably be using this if I ever get around to restarting my photo comic again.)

    A small force of Autobots and Decepticons crashed on Nebulos during a particularly intense battle and were offlined. The Hive captured their inactive forms and extracted their sparks, locking them away in their underground city. Then they gutted the bodies and converted them into mech suits to further terrorize any guerilla resistance to their rule.

    Both sides of the Cybertronian war sent forces to Nebulos to retrieve the soldiers they had lost contact with. After learning of the situation, the Autobots allied with the rebels and were able to steal back the sparks of their comrades. The Decepticons would ally with the Hive, but as you'd expect there'd be mutual distrust, betrayals, bla bla bla.

    Ultimately when the Transformers get back both the bodies and sparks, they realize the mods the Hive had made rendered the bodies unfit for carrying sparks. So they copied the Hive idea of the true controller of the robot only being the head, and transplanted the sparks into new, human sized bodies that would bond with the transtectors to regain their original size.

    The Omniverse is arranged in clusters, usually of up to ten. I think this is pretty in line with canon, but here's where it gets strange:

    All of these are akin to Aligned, as in the clusters are isolated and self contained — the others are in a limbo between fiction and reality. When the fabric of reality is screwed with (something surprisingly common with Transformers... probably because of all the Nexus, Vector, Unicron and Primus incarnations running around), these clusters "bleed" and can create some funky "crossover" universes. While the other clusters remain inaccessible, characteristics get carried over into new realities. Transformers has reality blending something hot — Star Wars and Marvel are only two examples of this occurring with other properties; many, many more universal clusters. Whether we see these depends on if Hasbro acquires the rights to make toys. They can be really odd to simply adding Transformers to how a universe of that cluster usually behaves to alternate universes where the people have been altered to psuedo-Cybertronians.

    This is just my haphazard manner of trying to fit in the Crossovers lines and maybe a fan fiction if I ever decide to waste my time.

    *Triple-Changers were used in the years prior to the war as “Peacekeeprs” (in reality an excuse by the Council to increase its already tight control over the populace). Their radically different alt-modes meant that they had no problems pursing their targets on both land and in the air. Ironically, despite their serenade to the Council, most Triple-Changers sided with the Decepticons during the Uprising.

    *As Cybertronian had experienced no external threads in centuries (the last being the Quintisson invasion), it did not have a standing armada at the time of the Autobot/Decepticon War.

    Familial relations come about simply when an existing Transformer chooses to care for a protoform specially instead of just treat them as a newcomer. Siblings are protoforms that received this kind of treatment at the same time from the same Transformer. For example, Quickswitch was a protoform that Sixshot selected and he cared for him like a human father would care for his son.

    There ARE still split-spark cases of course, like the Jumpstarters, but they are exceedingly rare compared to say, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker who were just raised by a single Transformer.

    Another head-canon I have. :D 

    Sparks, as you know, are what keep TFs alive, right? Well, in one universe, there is a war raging, not over Energon, Mini-cons, or even Cyber-Planet Keys, but rather, sparks. This time is known as the Spark Wars. Whomever can claim, or procure, the most sparks, will have the bigger army, and therefore, win the war. This is not like Beast Machines however. In this, Sparks are examined and studied to see how they function, and what powers they might have to grant the TF race.

    Now, here is where things get interesting. There is what is known as the Spark-Fusion, where two Cybertronians can merge their sparks to become a stronger mech or femme. However, this can only happen if two sparks share the same frequency for fusing. The only sparks that can are split-sparks, like twins, as they are two halves of one whole, right? Well, even twins cannot merge correctly if the frequencies are the tiniest bit off.

    Shockwave, one of the Decepticons, is known for experimenting on split-sparks, which are actually not as rare as we are led to believe. Most split-sparks just choose different alt modes from one another to hide the fact they are twins, and thus get spared from experimentation by Shockwave, as well as the High Council once they learn of Shockwave's experiments to create a super-Cybertronian.

    There are two sets of twins who perform the Spark-Fusion successfully: one the result of an experiment by Shockwave, one through a desperate means of survival.

    Bitbolt is the resulting mech from two mechs called Bit and Bolt. Done by Shockwave, Bit was injured in the experiment to see if he and Bolt would merge their sparks to stay alive. Bit was the base, and Bolt was the donator. Now, such experiments with the injured twin being the base almost never worked, due to the weaker spark always absorbing the stronger one in an act that would cause it to lose its energy instead of a true merge. But in Bitbolt's case, it worked. However, Bitbolt is slightly unhinged due to this, and he is always kept on a tight restraint so he can't attack any of his fellow Decepticons.

    Mach Dart is the mech who comes from the merging of two mechs called Mach Wing and Star Dart. Star Dart was injured in an ambush by Decepticon forces while Mach Wing escaped harm. However, the two knew that Star Dart was fatally injured, and if he died, so would Mach Wing. But, due to reading up on the Spark-Fusion theory, Mach Wing had the crazy idea of Star Dart transferring his spark to him instead of the other way around. Star Dart knew it could backfire, but agreed if it meant his twin would live, and would spare them the experimentations of Shockwave. So, using Mach Wing's own healthy spark as the base, the two merged sparks, becoming Mach Dart. Now, Mach Dart is mentally stable due to using the healthy twin as the base, but will go into a berserker rage if his spark is threatened in any way. Same with Bitbolt, but his is a bit more frenzied than Mach Dart's.

    These two are rivals, as one was done in a lab with medical specialists around, and one was done with no medical specialists to ensure it went smoothly. By all means, Mach Dart shouldn't even exist, but he does, so that means something went right regardless of what Bitbolt thinks.

    More on the Spark Wars themselves now. The leader in this is called the Spark Bearer, as the mech or femme in charge of the Autobots often gives life to new sparks for three solar cycles every Cybertronian week. The leader is technically the Prime, so the Prime is like the mother or father of his or her troops, literally. Therefore, the Decepticons aim to capture the Prime to use their life-giving ability to claim the victory they seek. But, a select group of mechs and femmes aims to stop the war and expose a dark secret the Council hides. Mach Dart is one of these elite mechs and femmes.

    Other Spark-based abilities include the ability to hide one's spark signature from others, known as Stealth Spark. Another ability is Spark Boost, where a mech or femme can boost their speed, power, or accuracy by using their spark's energy to do so for a limited time, depending on how much energy the spark gives off. Spark Fields can create spark-based shields, but only as a last means of defense to survive, again depending on how wounded the user is. With a weakened spark, a Spark Field will not stand up to many blasts, going down after only two or even three. Spark Sense is where a mech or femme can sense another's spark and how powerful it is, as well as identify the spark-based ability. The only ones immune to this are the Spark-Fusion creations.

    Spark-Fusion mechs and femmes are technically new mechs and femmes, with traits from both twins who were in the merging. They are considered newborns, and have greater speed, strength, agility, endurance, and intelligence than their unmerged counterparts. However, due to how hard it is to merge sparks, even twins, Spark Fusions are very rare and are considered to be mere urban legends.

    Point One Percenters are the ones who are the most powerful due to their green sparks, and only a Point One Percenter can give life if they have the Matrix of Leadership.

    Let me know what you think~! :p :D

    There really is no seemingly endless army of Sweeps, just Mirage and Hound getting some payback and trolling Galvatron from beyond the grave.

    Transformers Animated, Sentinel becomes an oppresive dictator who will do anything to stay in power, his intentions becoming clearer the closer we get to the series finale. While Megatron is still the series overall main villain, Sentinel is the hidden true main antagonist.

    Another headcanon I have concerns Beast Wars and Beast Machines. Optimus Primal, after losing so many of his crew and friends, can't handle the idea of losing anymore of them, and as such, becomes the religious fanatic obsessed with making Cybertron organic that we see in Beast Machines. The reason is because all of his friends and crew who died had organic alt modes, so therefore, he wants to make Cybertron wholly organic at first because he wants to honor them in his own twisted way. Only after seeing what he is doing, and facing down his own demons later on in Beast Machines, does he realize that a techno-organic Cybertron is the way to go.

    However, I think that even after the events of Beast Machines, Primal is ashamed of what he did and therefore can't bring himself to return to his own time, because he doesn't want to face his crew again. That is why he becomes the agent of the Alternity in Transformers lore.

    There are more "God-" drones than just Godbomber. Each one gives God Ginrai different equipment to use, like a drill, or propellers.

    G1 Technobot Strafe has become a Dinobot. Those pterodactyls/pteranodon (whatever...) that are called Strafe but are supposed to be Swoop are actually the Technobot Strafe.

    Mirage was storyboarded to, and I just assume all the characters from S1 and S2 who don't show up after the movie died at Autobot City.

    Signaling the apocalypse, the insignias of the Twelve Primes appear above the skies of Cybertron. The Twelve Primes send down their avatars called “Prime Masters” to each colony world, to grant each of their respective choosen champions with their powers in the final battle between Primus and Unicron for the fate of every universe within the brothers reach. There is no grander scale then the dimensions they shall ascend in their last war. But not is all as it seems, as the reach of the Chaos Bringer’s corruption has extended further then ever, and the Primes are split once more between Primus and Unicron.

    Children of Primus:
    Rodimus Prime-Primus/Prima
    Optimus Prime(self)
    Alpha Trion(self)
    Star Saber-Solus Prime
    Wreck-Gar-Alchemist Prime
    Grimlock(Volcanicus)-Nexus Prime
    Metalhawk-Vector Prime
    Grand Maximus-Micronus Prime

    Heralds of Unicron:
    Rodimus Unicronus(Unicron himself)
    Megatronus(self)
    Razorclaw(Predaking)-Onyx Prime
    Deathsaurus-Liege Maximo
    Bludgeon-Amalgamous Prime
    Thunderwing-Quintus Prime


    I imagine Power of The Primes with a very religious feel. Like an ancient gothic european church with organs. So I like to listen to and think of these as it’s themes, especially Omen.

    Doubledealer is secretive about his dealings and isn't known for playing both sides. However, Punch knows what he does and Doubledealer knows what he does, and they have an unspoken agreement not to reveal each other.
